Every Hanse is built on the German Baltic coast.
German engineers are renowned for their innovation, quality and attention to detail, Hanse has carried this reputation through to their yachts which is evident as soon as you step on-board.
Hanse Yachts are known for their build quality, which is a well deserved reputation. The build quality difference you will notice with a Hanse is down to the quality of materials and the way they are used.
Epoxy vinyl-ester resins, huge structural subframes, carbon re-enforcements and fully laminated bulkheads all help to produce a hull strength that is unrivalled in its class. On the larger models (458 upwards) you will also find blue-water features like water tight bulkheads to help you go further in even more safety. .
THE keel hull connection
The huge structural subframe is at the heart of every Hanse and importantly is both bonded and laminated to the hand built hull. Not only does the subframe add a great deal of rigidity to the hull, it also spreads the keel and rig loads throughout the structure. The keel itself is bolted up through the hull, subframe and aluminium plate so you can be completely re-assured.
Hanse rely on high tech materials to ensure the rigging loads are spread effectively throughout the hull and subframe structures. Carbon hull inlays transfer the rigging stresses safely so you can enjoy your time under sail for many years to come
Strength, safety and longevity is achieved through a combination of the best materials and expert lamination. Each hull benefits from being laid by hand to ensure complete control of the lamination process, whilst high tech epoxy based resins ensure the sandwich construction creates a superbly stiff, strong hull.
