Hans Christian 4750



Yacht World Number: 3091724
Located in La Paz, BCS, Mexico
Year: 1999
Hull Material: Fiberglass

The Offshore Explorer 4750 is the result of Hans Christian adding a new generation to its high-quality yachts. They chose Chuck Paine (the premier American Yacht Designer for the past 25 years) to design the hull and Nigel Calder (author of the 3 of the most popular marine maintenance books) to design the systems. Design focus was on passage safety and comfort, sailing performance, efficient systems and creature comforts. They succeeded in building a world class offshore cruiser with ease of maintenance, a comfortable and hospitable interior environment, and unparalleled safety features.

The Hans Christian Offshore Explorer was conceived, designed, engineered as a rugged, blue water yacht fully capable of circumnavigation or costal cruising while offering all the luxuries and comfort that can be appreciated at sea or anchored in a secluded harbor. Built in the reputable Hans Christian’s yard, the attention to detail and finish is amazing.
“Attitude” has been well maintained by a cruising couple who lived aboard making sure all maintenance schedules and equipment were attended too.

“Attitude” is located in La Paz, Baja México. About an hour’s drive north from Cabo San Lucas. La Paz is the Gateway to the Sea of Cortez. One of the most beautiful cruising areas in the world. Home of several World Heritage Sites. Friendly people, low prices, easy living, spectacular scenery, clear blue water make this area a great start for your cruising adventures.

“Attitude’s” interior features a three cabin two head layout. The interior was designed for long distance offshore sailing with plethora of storage, tank capacity and many handholds. Whether gunkholing, living aboard or entertaining the luxurious interior with its spacious and airy main salon makes you feel at home. The exceptionally crafted varnished teak woodwork gives you a feeling of a yacht that was custom made for you.
With an abundance of hatches, ports and 10ea 12v fans that keep the interior light and breezy.

Starting in the forward part of the interior there is the guest stateroom with two hatches, four opening port holes, and cowl vent for ventilation. There is a bureau, full height hanging locker and a settee. Storage is abundant in this cabin.

Port side forward is the third cabin. The wide double berth is raised up to provide large drawers underneath. As with the other cabins there is plenty of ventilation.

Fwd Head
Forward and starboard is one of two heads with a roomy shower area. The double door access allows occupants of either the forward guest cabin or the third port side cabin access to this forward head without disturbing the occupants of the other cabin.

Main Salon
The main salon has a large L-shaped settee to port with a large table for dining and entertaining. The six large fixed ports in the raised deck along with the overhead hatches give this cabin a bright and airy feeling. To starboard is a full-length settee. Cabinets and bookshelves surround the main salon. The main salon ultrasuede upholstery was upgraded in 2012.

Nav Station
Just aft and starboard of the main salon is the forward facing nav station. The large table and comfortable seat makes this area a true navigation station. There is more than ample room for all electronics. The extensive DC panel is also located here.

The galley is located on the port side aft of the main salon. Drawers, lockers and cabinets are numerous for all your galley and provision storage needs. The double SS sink, 3 burner stove, counter space and easy access frig and freezer makes preparing meals easy.

Aft Owners Head
Aft of the nav station on the starboard side is the 2nd head with separate shower stall. The open head on both aft and fwd doors along with the port galley allows two entry ways to the aft cabin.

Aft Owners Cabin
The large center line bed is huge with easy access from either side. Here again storage and ventilation is plentiful. Floor space permits easy movement though out this cabin.

Engine Area
A well-insulated engine area is located under the cockpit area. The innovative dual fuel system control panel is located in this area. Access to the engine room is forward, starboard and aft.

Hull and Deck
The hull is created in solid fiberglass below the water line and balsa core above. The best combination. Vinylester resin was used in the first layers of the laminate. In addition, throughout key areas in the hull additional Kevlar reinforcement has been integrated into the laminate. “Attitude” hull was painted in 2012.
The fiberglas deck with balsa coring had a two tone finish. The generous center cockpit has easy access “walk thurs” on both port and stb sides. Robust stainless steel grab rails make it easier to go forward or aft. The cockpit seats are than 7’ long with built in back support.
Eight SS opening hatches, 10 SS opening ports, 11 SS framed fixed ports and 3 SS dorades vents, give the interior plenty of light and ventilation.
Getting on an off “Attitude” is easy with a boarding platform with built in storage, hand holds and swim ladder that reaches 3’ below the water. The addition of a transom shower makes it convenient to rinse off.
