HanseYachts is presenting another top model: the new Hanse 455. Powerful and athletic. Striking and distinctive like a typical Hanse model, the new Hanse 455 breaks all boundaries. The strong rig brings the performance on the water. The boat is also characterised by extraordinary equipment and quality materials which guarantee a grand appearance typical of Hanse.
The Hanse 455 has a total length of 13.95 m, a water line length of 12.20 m and a width of 4.38 m. Two keel versions are available: the standard T-keel with 2.25 m, an L-shape keel with 2.25 m and an L-shape shallow keel with 1.82 m. The boat is controlled with two steering wheels and one rudder. A Volvo Penta D2-55 with 53 hp (39kW) and saildrive is installed as standard.
The standard interior of the new Hanse 455 includes 3 cabins, with an extension option in the forward cabin area with 2 cabins to make a total of 4 cabins. This is particularly interesting for charter companies. There is a choice between two extension options in the center segment. A generous U-shaped sofa on the starboard and a comfortable bench on the backboard is offered as standard, with the option of replacing the bench on the backboard with a small table and two swiveling chairs. The spacious, light-filled cabins are combined with two heads. As usual with Hanse models, the forward cabin is equipped with a WC and basin on the backboard and a spacious shower on starboard; almost like home. The second wet area is located on the backboard at the rear of the saloon and is also equipped with a large partitioned off shower.
The new Hanse 455 also offers ample storage space. In the cockpit, there is a large storage locker under the benches and in the cockpitfloor, as well as storage compartments for smaller equipment items, such as binoculars and mobile phones, on the deck hatchway. There is also a large sail locker in the bow which can be accessed from the deck and offers ample space for sails, fenders and items such as on-board bicycles.
Light and air is distributed through the entire boat via the 20 portholes on-board, which helps to create a pleasant cabin climate and makes the area below deck unbelievably light.
The new Hanse 455 also has the largest cockpit in its class. This gives future owners enough space to sail in comfort and for spending relaxing hours in the port. Large pods on the steering pedestals which fit harmoniously in the overall image of the boat hold all the important instruments and control panels for navigation and the function of the boat.
The deck is easy to operate and is designed so that the yacht can also be sailed with just a small crew. This is achieved with the help of the self-turning jib included as standard and the winches close to helmsman position. The helmsman position can be used to operate all halyards and sheets.
To underline the sense of well-being afforded by the new Hanse 455 even further, the Hanse Design Team has come up with something very special: on the cabin superstructure in front of the mast, there is the option of a large sun lounger with a size of 1,90 x 1,55 m, which is perfect for relaxing!
The price of the new Hanse 455 is 169,900.00 Euro net (202,181.00 € including 19 % VAT).
The first boat is due to be completed in July 2014!
