One of the more recent names in the volume European boatbuilding world, Hanse was a relatively small company until it was bought by Michael Schmidt in the late 1990s. Subsequent rapid growth has seen it become one of the biggest forces in the market for mainstream cruising yachts, producing affordable boats with plenty of space relative to their overall length.
The company now produces boats from 32 to 63 feet and has built a reputation for style, value for money and bringing Germanic precision to high-volume boatbuilding. Hanse has also expanded outside of its core market through acquisition of smaller boatbuilders including Dehler and Moody, as well as the Fjord motor yacht brand.
We always aim to ensure that each of our creations is the fastest cruising yacht in her class. The internationally renowned designers at Judel/Vrolijk & co have achieved this again with the HANSE 345. Perfectly balanced, she has a high degree of stability and can be sailed safely in all weathers. And, yes, she’s really quick too!
Stress-free handling comes as standard with HANSE. You can sail the HANSE 345 short handed if you wish, as the helmsman can operate the sheets, halyards and reefing lines from astern. The spacious cockpit is free of ropes, giving your fellow passengers room to relax.
