Hanse 460 Sailboat - New innovative design
In an exciting pitch, the boat design from Berret-Racoupeau in La Rochelle stands out with a vision that offers a new hull design for this sailboat Hanse 460, as well as a very versatile cockpit and interior. Together with the development group from Hanse Yachts, a family cruiser was developed with the aim of setting new standards in terms of easy handling, individualisation and sailing performance. And all this in a sporty, modern exterior design as well as an outstanding interior design equipped with exclusive details.
Definitely an innovative, agile and spacious sailboat.
Hanse 460 is a sailboat based on its long and successful history. For the first time, it has been developed by the globally successful French yacht designers Berret-Racoupeau. They won in a dense pitch with a convincing overall concept. Their premium class focused on maximizing innovation while combining the typical, traditional Hanse values – Fast Cruising, Easy sailing, innovative design and individual customization – with a look that is definitely modern and sporty.
The new Hanse 460 is both beautiful to look at and an appealing boat for ambitious skippers. Well-balanced and hydrodynamically optimized, it is extremely stable. The sporty high rig guarantees an effectively maximized sailing plan. An optional second bow for a range or a large Quantum genaker makes the Hanse 460, like so many Hanse sailboats before it, one of the best performing boats in its class. All summed up in uncompromisingly simple handling and relaxed sailing in typical Hanse style.
With its clear and elegant lines, the pronounced sporty sticks and the minimalist modern deck layout, the new sailboat Hanse 460 is your individual elegant home on the water. The deck is free of falls and sails, which provides a fantastic space for carefree hours in the sun and exclusive relaxation. The skipper steers the rudder of the spacious cockpit at one of the two knobs with just two fingers, while the crew and guests enjoy the breeze in a lounge-like atmosphere. When it’s time for a dip, lower the integrated bathing platform quickly and easily and step into the water.
Comfort for the family
Hanse 460 is also impressive under deck, with elegant clear lines, which masterfully combine cosiness and functionality. It is a combination that we call Hanse Family-Look. High-quality materials and a selection of elegant surfaces create a unique atmosphere that makes you feel at home. Many large gaps strategically placed provide a lot of light and air that rounds off the well-thought-out concept of generous living space. And of course, luxury self-time is part of luxury living. Therefore, the new Hanse 460 has a comfortable double bed as standard as part of the elegant interior of the owners cabin.
The newly developed, hydrodynamic hull handles the balancing between a narrow waterline, for better hull speed and a wide hull above the waterline with chines front and rear, which provides the largest possible interior space. The inverted bow makes the boat hit less in strong winds, while the pronounced arches keep the foredeck as dry as possible.
The new deck construction has 14 openable hatches and eight openable windows that provide maximum light and ventilation under deck in this new sailboat. Many smart options allow the cockpit to be optimally adapted. These include an electrically operated bathing platform with stairs, a wet bar with sink and grill, as well as telescopic davits that can be lowered to the floor in the cockpit when not in use. Hardtop (optional) can be equipped with a fixed windshield and solar panels to generate renewable power and fits perfectly with the boat’s aerodynamic silhouette.
Generous sailing surfaces with 114 sqm up-wind and 234 sqm tailwind show the enormous performance potential of the Hanse 460. The standard bow track with integrated anchor arm acts as a forward point for sails and gennakers and can take a second first for genoa or reacher. Optional electric furlers for mainsail and mainsail as well as electric winches are as much a part of Hanse’s typical simple handling as the obligatory self-tapping jib. In addition to standard jibs, there is also 105% jib and 145% genoa from Quantum as a seal.
No less than 48 layout combinations give customers every opportunity to configure the Hanse 460 to suit their needs. Whether it’s like an owner’s boat with a master cabin including a bathroom and two comfortable aft cabins; or as a charter boat with 10 beds and three bathrooms – anything is possible. The kitchen can also be completely adapted to the customer’s wishes. In addition to various cooling and freezing options, there is also space for a wine cooler, dishwasher and a gas stove with three burners with oven in longitudinal or U-pantry, which can be adapted with different colors and surface materials.
Another highlight is the fully equipped forward-facing navigation area, which is second to none in this class. The extensive list of options, which extends from a washing machine in the laundry room to the flat screen in the cab and saloon, is the crowning achievement of the flagship package, which includes exclusive fabrics and materials as well as a hidden rod behind the folding backrest in the saloon.
