For that money you might want to look at a new Pacific Seacraft 37. Ocean rated like the Hans Christian with a similar traditional look but larger in size. The 33T is very nice, but for that money, you should really want to keep her for a long time and look at it from a style, comfort, what you like point of view and not just $$. If I could afford it, I would get a new 41 Traditional with the hard dodger option. There are plenty of used Hans Christians for sale on various online sites if you want to go that route and use the savings to do any upgrades you want. From what I have seen, they are definately rugged enough to stand up over time, so a 15 or 20 year old boat with some equipment upgrades may not be a bad way to go. The basic structure is very sound.
