Hanse presented two yachts for trendsetters
The new Hanse 458 and new Hanse 508
Being a trendsetter means to have the courage to try new things and to establish successful developments long-term. The 8 series from Hanse has this courage. The peak of this Hanse trend wave is now reached with the presentation of the new Hanse 458 and the new Hanse 508. Both yachts embody the perfect symbol of a modern sailing yacht: seaworthiness and elegance, sportiness and comfort, functionality and design. The new Hanse 458 is no exception and already holds in the exterior what it promises. Ergonomic plotter pods, a double anchor arm for a code zero and six windows in the aft cabins are just some of the details that make this yacht special.
Below deck, fine woods and soft fabrics enrich the grace of this Hanse. An essential detail: This 45 ft yacht does not have a freestanding mast support. The main bulkhead is a composite construction with carbon reinforcement and provides a stiff and direct mast-keel connection. The large cockpit, the elevated bulwark, the second forestay for a Genoa adding to the self-taking jib – The Hanse 508 immediately convinced as a true blue water yacht for long distance sailing. In the interior, the new Hanse 508 surprises with some special features and an elegantly designed interior. It is the only new Hanse yacht with a longitudinal galley in the saloon and can be equipped with up to five cabins.
