Summer Dream is like brand new, a pristine example of the Hans Christian Explorer. The design is the ninth design in Chuck Paine’s acclaimed Bermuda series. Tony Seibert based the design on the very successful Hylas 49. Truly a yacht conceived, engineered and constructed for serious offshore passage-making and extended living aboard. She is large enough to take you anywhere in the world in comfort and safety, and small enough to be handled easily by a couple in their later years.
The Hans Christian Offshore Explorer was designed as a rugged, blue water sailboat fully capable of circumnavigating the world while offering luxury and comfort that can be appreciated out at sea or on a coastal cruise. She has a shoal draft of 6′ and is one of the highest performance cruising sailboats ever built. She thrives in big seas and will cruise at 8 to 10 knots in almost any sea state.
Summer Dream features the three stateroom, two head layout with top quality construction. This ideal, blue water passage maker has a bow thruster. She has watertight bow and stern areas with reinforced Kevlar and E-glass. 2/3 skeg hung “sacrificial” rudder, oversized standing rigging. There are deck lockers that you can really store items in, a 75hp Yanmar with low hours, Xantrex 1800 watt inverter, 180 gallons of fuel, and 270 gallons of water. She is low maintenance above deck with exquisite joinery below – a rare high quality vessel.
