Hanse have built a reputation for building fast, safe cruising yachts. Hanse hand lay their hulls using epoxy based vinylester resins as standard. Combine this with structural bulkheads and a composite stiffening subframe and the result is a hugely strong, safe hull form.
The interior of a Hanse can be customised from a huge range of layout, wood, upholstry and flooring options, which means the new owner can really design the living accomodation to their own taste.
All Hanse Yachts are designed by the world renowned designers Judel/Vrolijk who are famous for creating Alinghi. As you would expect from their team the Hanse range are a dream to sail. Light on the helm and with a very impressive turn of speed to really eat up the miles.
Every Hanse is designed to work best with a self tacking jib. Not only does this improve upwind performance as it can be sheeted closer than a traditional jib and the improvements in ease of handling are phenomenal.
