Advertiser's comments

One of just two aft-cockpit examples of the legendary Hans Christian 48T canoe-sterned ‘go-anywhere’ bluewater cruiser. UK-located, UKCA RCR certified and UK VAT paid. A unique opportunity.   FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:   With just two owners since new, ‘WICKED LADY’ represents a very rare opportunity to acquire one of just two aft-cockpit variants of this legendary hand-built design. Recently imported to the UK, WICKED LADY will be sold with the latest UKCA RCR compliancy, along with UK VAT-paid status and UK/European 220vAC 50Hz electrics.   Simply perfect for liveaboard sailing and with the capability to go anywhere on the world’s oceans in comfort and safety, WICKED LADY is easily handled thanks to her electric in-mast furling mainsail and roller furling headsail.  She also benefits from numerous updates over recent seasons including a replacement Yanmar 110hp engine 220vAC generator, replacement standing rigging and so on.   Her specification highlights include:-

  • Aft cockpit variant
  • Long-keel and canoe-sterned hull configuration for excellent directional stability and sea-keeping
  • Updated Yanmar engine and transmission with Max-Prop feathering propeller
  • Bow thruster (requires repair) with wireless remote control.
  • Replaced pulpit and teak grate – 2018.
  • Electric in-mast furling mast.
  • All standing rigging inspected and renewed in 2018.
  • Replaced 4kw genset.
  • Inverter.
  • Air conditioning, heating and 12vDC Electric fans.
  • Fusion Entertainment System with Built-In Wi-Fi.
  • Workshop.
  • Electric flush head.
  • Gas oven/stove/broil oven.
  • Fridge with keel cooler.
  • Gas BBQ.
  • Sprayhood and bimini/cockpit tent.
  • Radar, Furuno sailing instruments, autopilot and AIS
  • Satellite phone.
  • 2x Electric windlasses.
  • Inflatable dinghy with outboard motor.
  OWNER’S COMMENTS:   “WICKED LADY is an HC48 built in Taiwan in 1987 - a much respected and admired make popular in the USA, with a solid full keel and incredible teak interiors, designed for world cruising for a couple or family in comfort and style. She’s one of around 200 of this length, and one of only two custom-made with the rear cockpit design.    We bought her from the original owner. He commissioned her in 1987 from the Hansa boat yard in Taiwan - with a rear cockpit rather than central, which allows for a huge roomy saloon. He modified her in a couple of other ways too - adding a workshop, opting for a solid GRP deck (many other HCs had a core) and extra-strong glass around the chainplates.    She was delivered to him in California where he kept her for many years. In the 2000s he semi-retired and brought her to the BVIs and offered occasional high-end day charters for 6-8 people. He later retired as a liveaboard in Curacao in the ABCs. As he was getting on a bit in years he downsized to a HC33 (testament to the joy of HCs!)   We bought her in Curacao in 2019 and sailed her to the BVIs before shipping her home to the UK. (She sailed beautifully, like a train on tracks). We’ve been working on her in Southampton and later St Kats.”   She has full UK VAT paid UK, UKCA compliancy and has been rewired for 220vAC, and has a new diesel heating system. She has a full suite of electronics.
