Hanse Yachts launches the brand new 460 sailboat

A statement of Design

The new Hanse 460

Radically innovative, agile and spacious. The new Hanse 460 graciously builds on its long and successful history. For the first time, it’s been developed by the globally successful French yacht designers Berret-Racoupeau. They won in a tight pitch with a convincing overall concept. Their first-class draft focused on maximizing innovation while managing to unite those typical, traditional Hanse values – Fast Cruising, Easy Sailing, Innovative Design and Individual Customization – with a look that is confidently modern and sporty.


The new Hanse 460 is both beautiful to look at and an appealing yacht for ambitious skippers. Well-balanced and hydro dynamically optimized, it is extraordinarily stable. It’s sporty tall rig guarantees an effectively maximized sail plan. An optional second forestay for a reacher or large quantum gennaker ensure that the Hanse 460, like so many Hanse yachts before it, is one of the best-performing yachts of its class. It all adds up to uncompromisingly easy handling and relaxed sailing in typical Hanse style.

With its clear and elegant lines, the pronounced sporty chines and the minimalist modern deck layout, the new Hanse 460 is your individual stylish home on the water. The deck is free of halyards and sheets, providing a fantastic space for carefree hours in the sun and exclusive relaxation. The skipper helms the yacht in the spacious cockpit at one of the two wheels with just two fingers, while crew and guests enjoy the breeze in a lounge-like atmosphere. When it’s time for a dip, quickly and easily lower the integrated bathing platform and step into the sea.

The Hanse 460 is also impressive below decks, with elegant clear lines, masterfully combining cosiness and functionality. It’s a combination that we call the Hanse Family-Look. High quality materials and a selection of elegant surfaces create a unique atmosphere that make you feel at home. Numerous large hatches strategically positioned provide lots of light and air, rounding off the well-thought-out concept of generous living space. And of course, luxurious downtime is a part of luxurious living. That’s why the new Hanse 460 includes a comfortable double bed as standard as part of the elegant furnishings of the owner’s cabin.
