2001 Hunter 53 ft HC 50 Anastasia
Anastasia is a unique boat in today's world of cruising yachts. She was the brain child of Warren Luhrs, in conjunction with B&R Designs and the Hunter Design Team. They built a boat that took the experiences of singlehand around-the-world sailors and made an advanced long-distance express cruiser. The HC50 was built to provide fast, stable, and comfortable passage making.
Her sistership took 1st overall and 1st to finish in the 2007 Port Huron to Mackinac Solo Challenge Race. Anastasia was a semi-custom build for an experienced cruising couple with consultation by record breaking sailors Steve Pettingill and Warren Luhrs. She represents the best of cruising comfort and safety, coupled with super high 20+ knot performance. Features include:
- Upgraded Yanmar 55HP engine with MaxProp vs standard 38HP sail drive.
- Carbon fiber spars vs standard aluminum
- Wheel steering vs tiller
- 3rd Generation Bergstrom and Ridder rig
- Port and Starboard water ballast tanks (2700 lbs)
- 3 water tight bulkheads
- Transom extension "sugar scoop"
- 2 water tight doors
- Double head rig
- Ultra-light hi-tech construction
Her current owners purchased her in the winter of 2008 and in fall of 2009 sailed from California around South America to the Med, arriving in spring of 2010. In the fall of 2013 they sailed west and spent four years circumnavigating the world. She is now back in the US on the east coast, and will soon arrive in Annapolis before the boat show season. Anastasia will be featured in the first Annapolis Blue Water Boat Show presented by David Walters Yachts at Port Annapolis Marina October 4 – 8
