Building a yacht means more than simply combining the various parts. It requires passion for yachting, an in-depth understanding of the materials and the will to achieve absolute precision, also in the most meticulous details. With this in mind, our engineers and builders create a fascinating masterpiece carefully crafted with impressive details and supported by the most modern technology.
High quality sailing yachts made in Germany
A tradition of perfectionism
The location in Greifswald had stood for excellent yacht building for centuries. At the Hanse yard, we continue this tradition. In all of our departments, highly qualified professionals can be seen mastering their craft and practising it with passion. Each yacht is created using cutting-edge manufacturing conditions, finished by a highly motivated team which thoroughly tests each individual yacht that leaves the stocks personally – on the water under real sailing conditions. Only when we are certain that all of our high standards have been satisfied do we hand over the yacht to its future owner.
Hanse yachts stand for safety and stability. To guarantee this, the keel plates are solidly integrated into a highly stable bed of epoxy adhesive. The keel is anchored directly in the solid floor construction. The keel flanges, including washers and nuts, are made of high-quality, seawater-proof stainless steel.
Carbon-reinforced chain plates
Designed for maximum performance
The elegant and ultra-strong chain plate of the Hanse 548 and Hanse 588 is carbon-reinforced at the most critical spots where high rig forces are strongest. These forces are precisely guided into the hull structure. The lounge below deck on board these yachts remains clear and offers a beautiful, undisturbed atmosphere of well-being.
Safe at every turn
The higher foot railing creates a harmonious connection between dynamic hull lines and an elegant, high-sea railing. When it comes to Hanse yachts over 50 feet (ca. 15 m) in length, the foot railing is 15 per cent higher, for an exclusive plus in safety.
A solid core
The elegant hull of Hanse yachts is made of several layers of specially chosen materials and is calculated precisely down to every detail. It is especially lightweight and, thanks to the use of vinyl ester resin in the outer laminate layer, it is completely resistant to osmosis. Depending on the model’s specifications, the yachts are constructed using the single-skin laminate technique or the sandwich method.
Stability without compromise
The Bulkheads are manufactured as one piece using vacuum infusion in a composite construction technique. They feature an exceptionally high stability and ensure for a seamless reinforcement of the hull, floor structure and deck.
Extra stability, exclusively with Hanse
In collaboration with judel/vrolijk & co, Hanse has developed an innovative hull–deck connection which exceeds all standard regulations by far. In addition to the use of highly stable polyester epoxy, the deck and hull are additional anchored together with the help of solid flanges, which are situated in the clamps. This unique Hanse construction ensures a stiff, torsion-free yacht with a confident, sporty character.
Hanse e-motion Rudder Drive
The electric e-motion Rudder Driver in the Hanse 315 sets new standards. The powertrain allows for tight turns, the best rotations on the yacht's own keel and safety when berthing and casting off, especially during times of high winds. This is made possible by the electric motor and propeller built directly into the rudder blade. Your Hanse is actively steered and does not have to pick up speed first.
Hanse helmsman control
Sailing at the press of a button
What sounds like a futuristic vision is reality today at Hanse. You control the entire technology of the yacht comfortably from the cockpit. All halyards and sheets are guided to the helm, and you have full control during all manoeuvres.
Optimally Long Waterline
The straight stern and the vertical stem of HANSE yachts are just one secret to the excellent performance of these yachts. This intelligent design allows for an optimally long waterline at each heeling angle – and thus a confidently superior speed on all courses.
HANSE Rudder Balance
When it comes to the design of the rudder system, HANSE focuses on providing the highest safety without compromising agility. This is why HANSE relies on a pre-balanced rudder, whose effective surface is maximized and larger than average. It enables you to easily and playfully steer your yacht in any situation.
HANSE One-rope Reef System
Thanks to the one-rope reef system, the sailing surface can be adapted easily and quickly to different wind conditions – comfortably from the cockpit.
HANSE Smart Trim System
The backstay tensioners allow for a highly professional, fine trim. The mast’s curve can be finely and stepless adjusted, while the sail’s profile can be ideally adapted to all wind conditions and currents.
HANSE Self-tacking Jib
The self-tacking jib, which was created specially for HANSE yachts, brings Easy Sailing to its highest level. Manoeuvring is fast and effortless, and can be easily accomplished with just a single hand.
