With its generously sized cockpit, high freeboard and a second forestay for a jib or staysail alongside the self-tacking genoa, the Hanse 508 immediately makes it clear that it is a true offshore and long-distance sailboat, while maintaining that commitment to comfort that is typical of large-volume boats.

Voile magazine Novembre 2018: Hanse 458 et Hanse 508 (FR)
As expected, the new Hanse models were on show in Cannes, but as expected there was not much new compared to the Hanse 455 and 505 launched in 2015 and 2014 respectively. New interior colours, new equipment on the 458... The good news is that these large Hanse models of the 2018 vintage are still good cruisers.
