The rare Robert Perry-designed HC 34 is a classic cutter that’s a very capable offshore boat; with a full keel, high ballast-to-weight ratio, deep cockpit (that’s bigger and more comfortable than those on the more common HC 33 & 38 and approaches the size of the 43) and a big rudder placed far aft, she’s safe and sea kindly under power or sail. She also has a comfortable, well laid out interior that feels much larger than her size would suggest and is finished in lovely teak to Hans Christian’s exacting standards.

Additional Information


The Hans Christian 34 is a traditional heavy displacement, full keel, double-ended, world class cruiser, meant to handle heavy seas with relative comfort and ease.  With her large bowsprit and cutter rigging, she is a favorite among blue water aficionados. Everywhere you turn, you see thoughtful, overbuilt details, with every teak nook & cranny being used for storage. Her interior is finished throughout with gorgeous teak woodwork that was exquisitely done.



The interior is hand-fitted teak with a great deal of beautiful cabinetry and joiner work. Drawers are dovetailed and the cabin sole is teak and holly. The teak is set off with a white overhead and cabin side accents, bronze port lights and tasteful dark blue upholstery. She has an enormous amount of storage with hanging lockers, wet locker, and sliding door lockers with lots of additional under-seat storage as well. There is a comfortable V-berth forward followed by the head and shower combination to port.  As you enter the main salon a settee is to starboard and a U shaped dinette opposite which also converts to a double berth.  There is a beautiful butterfly skylight directly overhead providing an abundance of natural light and ventilation. The L shaped galley is located to port directly behind the dinette. And finally across to starboard is the generous navigation center and large quarter berth.


Galley and Plumbing

The L shaped galley is aft of the dinette and has a deep double stainless steel sink with pressure water, sea water pump faucets and storage below. The galley is equipped with a stainless steel, gimbaled, propane stove w/oven. Just aft of the galley is the large icebox witch also adds additional counter space.
