Hans Christian 33T

New Price!  Decks and Bottom repaired!

AVEC is probably the finest HC33T to be offered on the market in recent years. After a $30,000 re-fit last summer by her professional captain and now a total Teak deck refit, blister repair and new bottom epoxy and paint she is turn key in every fashion. From her freshly varnished exterior to her all new interior you will find AVEC meets even the most demanding standards.

The Woody Ives designed HC33T is perhaps the finest example of combining seaworthiness, sailing performance, storage, and comfort in a vessel under 40 feet. AVEC is hull number 91 built by the famous builder Herb Gutler and his Hansa yard. For a detailed history of both the designer and builder please see the review at bluewaterboats.org. For a detailed walk through of AVEC's sister ship PRISM please watch the video at svprism.com.

AVEC awaits your inspection at our docks on Lake Union; you will not be disappointed.

Owner will finance pursuant to a preferred ship's mortgage

with a down payment of 35% or more.
