Hanse Yachts: Hanse 460 marks the launch of a new model range

The Hanse 460 marks the launch of a new model range that combines radically innovative design with traditional Hanse values such as fast cruising and easy sailing.

In an exciting pitch, the yacht designers from Berret-Racoupeau in La Rochelle stood out with a vision that offers a new hull design, as well as a highly versatile cockpit and interior design. Together with the development team from Hanse, 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.

Andreas Unger, Hanse Product Manager: “Our new Hanse 460 is a Hanse through and through. With the flexible option list, the customer can configure the boat in countless variations, both on deck and below. Furthermore, we have put a lot of emphasis on a finely balanced sailing performance based on a tall rig with a large sail area, various keel options and a clever deck layout. Combined with the new, sporty design and the easy handling typical of Hanse, the result is an all-round winning package.”

Hull: The newly developed, hydrodynamic hull manages the balancing act between a narrow waterline, for better hull speed, and a wide hull above the waterline with chines fore and aft, giving the greatest possible interior space. The reverse bow makes the boat pitch less in strong winds, while the pronounced bow chines keep the foredeck as dry as possible.

Deck: The new deck design has 14 opening hatches and eight opening windows to offer maximum light and ventilation below deck. Many smart options allow the cockpit to be optimally customised. These include an electrically lowering bathing platform with stairs, a wetbar with sink and grill, as well as telescopic davits that can be lowered flush to the cockpit floor when not in use. The optional hardtop can be fitted with a fixed windscreen and solar panels to generate renewable power, and fits perfectly with the boat’s aerodynamic silhouette.

Rig: Generous sail areas of 114sqm upwind and 234sqm downwind point to the enormous performance potential of the Hanse 460. The standard bowsprit with integrated anchor arm serves as a forward tack point for headsail and gennaker and can take a second forestay for genoa or reacher. Optional electric furlers for main and headsails as well as electric winches are just as much a part of Hanse’s typical easy handling as the obligatory self-tacking jib. In addition to the standard jib, a 105% jib and a 145% genoa from Quantum are also available as foresails.The Hanse 460 marks the launch of a new model rangeThe Hanse 460 marks the launch of a new model range

Interior: No fewer than 48 layout combinations give customers every opportunity to configure their Hanse 460 to suit their needs. Whether as an owner’s yacht with a master cabin including ensuite bathroom and two comfortable aft cabins; or as a charter yacht with 10 berths and three bathrooms – everything is possible. The galley can also be fully adapted to the customer’s wishes. In addition to various refrigerator and freezer options, there is also room for a wine cooler, dishwasher and a three-burner gas cooker with oven in the longitudinal or U-pantry, which can be customised with various colours and surface materials. Another optional highlight is the fully equipped navigation area with forward-facing seat, which is unparalleled in this class. The extensive options list, ranging from a washing machine in the utility room to flatscreens in the master cabin and saloon, is crowned by the Flagship Package, which includes exclusive fabrics and materials as well as a hidden bar behind the folding backrest in the saloon.

The newly developed 3D configurator on the Hanse website allows you to explore and customize all options of the Hanse 460.The Hanse 460 marks the launch of a new model rangeThe Hanse 460 marks the launch of a new model range
