NAKIA pictures

After almost 27 years it's time to move on to another project. NAKIA is for sale. Here are a few pictures to show what we have. If you're interested, please contact svnakia@yahoo.com.
NAKIA's exterior showing the painted exterior teak. All the teak was varnished first, so if you prefer the natural look it will be easy to scrape the paint and re-varnish.

NAKIA still has the original teak deck in the cockpit. The lazarette hatch, helm seat and propane locker hatch have all been rebuilt (the helm seat twice!).
The foredeck area showing where the teak decking was removed and where the Lewmar Ocean 50 hatches were installed. The hatch in the back of this photo is not standard on any Hans Christian 33 and was added by me for better ventilation over the pullman berth. 

This photo shows more area where the teak deck was removed and replaced with non-skid. I also removed the wood Samson post and had this custom stainless one made in Mexico.

This photo shows the hatch turtle. More custom work here. The original hatch turtle was rotted and falling apart. I built this fiberglass and plywood cover to replace it. It is heavily reinforced on the bottom and is super sturdy. Also shown are the two Lewmar Ocean hatches that replaced the leaking skylight. Every time you see a picture of this part of a Hans Christian 33 you will see a cover over that skylight, this is because it is impossible to stop from leaking! NAKIA needs no cover.

NAKIA is not without exterior varnish, but we keep it under the dodger where it's protected.

NAKIA's depth sounder (fish finder) and GPS data repeater is located in the companionway out of the weather. The unit swings out so it can be viewed from the wheel, and locks flush when not in use. The Robertson AP11 control head and custom engine gauge cluster are shown.
This photo shows the custom cabinet at the end of the settee and the Sharp television mounted on a swing arm.

The companionway stairs.

Galley with 3-burner Force 10 stove, double sink and Adler Barbour cooled refrigerator.

Double sink. The faucet is supplied by both a pressure pump for convenience and foot pump for conservation. 

The head, the pump handle is for the Lavac toilet.

Another view of the head.
