|Yacht Name:||Christina Pearl|
|Model:||Legend CC 45|
Built for the 2006 London Boat Show, this unique Hunter has a proven ocean crossing pedigree. With 3 Atlantic Crossings under her belt, including one from Portugal via Brazil to the USA and one single handed crossing by her Owner. She benefits of many options not seen in the standard boats built from Hunter/Luhrs.
This beautiful boat comes fully equipped with every conceivable extra to make long term cruising a dream. She has been well maintained without regard to expense and has recently undergone an extensive refit in September 2017.
This included new standing rigging, checking and replacing where necessary running rigging; a full bottom job, back to original Gel Coat and 5 coats of Copper Coat; removal of rudder and inspection of rudder stock and bearings, all found to be in excellent condition; new LED navigation lighting with automatic anchor light; LED spreader, stern and cockpit lighting; new VHF and AIS antennas; all mast fittings removed, inspected, painted and replaced where necessary, Also recently installed 18Kbtu air conditioning.
Christina Pearl as she’s called, was supplied with an extra deep lead keel and taller rig. This has resulted in a very stiff and fast boat, that is a pleasure to sail.
Everything is led back to the cockpit for safety and ease of sailing and the instrument binnacle allows full control of the boat from the helm position. The main halyard winch and the two primary winches are Lewmar electric with 2 speed manual over-ride. This makes short handed sailing a pleasure.
With in-mast mainsail furling, roller foresail and a roller cruising chute system, sail handling is a simple job. Main sail and Genoa were overhauled in 2012/2013 when a new Main and Genoa were supplied by north Sails. The old set of sails have been kept for long down wind work while the new sails are excellent for pointing too windward. The large sail area and deep keel makes her excellent up-wind but she remains very dry even when beating hard into a sea.
With 240 volt and also 120 volt inside, plus the ability to plug into either voltage shore supplies, she is ideal for any Continent.
If lying at anchor is your game, then the excellent battery/invertor/solar/diesel generator systems on board will make sure you have ample power, and the water maker will make sure you don’t ever run out. When it gets hot, the air conditioner will run from the generator. You can even run one when you’re on the hard.
The experienced Owners have thought of everything for comfortable, safe, fast worldwide cruising. Start your dream today. She sits on the hard very near to Downtown Annapolis, Maryland for easy viewing. Absent overseas Owners want her sold now.
She truly is not like any other Hunter on today’s market.
