The Hans Christian 33T was designed by Harwood Ives, with the first boats being built at the state of the art facilities at the Hansa Yacht Und Shifbau Yard in Taiwan (1980-87) during the "Golden Age" of Taiwanese boat building. In total 163 boats were built between 1980 and 2009, with the last recorded boat built in Thailand. "Ventolera" (ex "Quacker Jacque III") is hull #109, built in April of 1986.
The HC 33T is a traditional heavy displacement full keel offshore double-ended cruiser, which offers the same storage area below of that of her larger siblings, the HC 38 and HC 41. The interior layout offers a two stateroom layout with a Pullman berth forward to port with the head and shower stall located forward in the bow and a aft cabin quarter-berth to starboard. The galley is aft of the "L" Shaped salon and offers plenty of storage, a front and top loading refrigeration/freeze, twin sinks and marble counter tops. "Ventolera" comes with the larger Volvo 43hp diesel to power this 20,000 lb+ cruiser at close to hull speed.
The HC 33T is a popular model for those seeking to join the ranks of the "Bohemian life style" and go off to cruise the oceans and far away places. She is a great boat for a couple as a live-aboard offshore cruiser. She is a heavily built, solid, safe, comfortable and seaworthy boat that has remained popular over the years, while still holding higher resale values over other manufactures of offshore double-enders built during the "Golden Age" out of Taiwan and Thailand.
