Hanse ́s core values
Easy Sailing-Easy sailing

With self-striking Fock, standard on all Hanseatic boats, the manoeuvration of the boat is simplified when sailing on the cross. With all the cases and butt pulled down to the Helsmans site in the cockpit, a person can sail boats up to 70 feet. The double knosers on all models ensure easy and efficient manoeuvrability and good supervision before.

Fast Cruising – Fast Cruising

Hanse are fast boats that deliver speed and let you easily sail past most. With a gennacker or CodeC on downwind, you can get a Hanse to surf because of its hull and high rig. In short, it means that you are arriving in port among the first.

Innovative design – luxurious, simple, practical technical solutions

Hanse has a love of minimalist surfaces and lines in interior design and builds it in a very rational way. Design, light and idiom create a modern interior that provides comfortable comfort. The cockpit with its large bathing platform gives you closeness to the water and with a width that simplifies communication and space for interaction or relaxation.

Individual customization

You can choose from several interior design options and put your own touch on this through a wide selection of interior materials such as woods, fabrics and the equipment you desire for added comfort, comfort or performance.

The sleeping area is located below deck.
