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.
The new Hanse 385 is the successor of the already successful and legendary 37-foot range.
The 370 series is a piece of fashion success story of Hanse. It was well over 1,000 were ever made! With it began a long, cooperative partnership between Hanse Yachts and most successful design office Judel / Vrolijk & co. Together with the designers Hanse has developed many groundbreaking yacht types which have affected the world market. The new Hanse 385 is a logical development that builds on the models 445, 495 and 545
She has a higher volume by 20 percent with improved sailing performance. The running deck is free of fittings, the anchor box takes fenders. The large cockpit has comfortable seating positions. There is plenty of room for a dual wheel system (standard) with a broad cross on the berthing platform..
The interior concept is based on the design of the larger Loftstyle Hanse models 545, 445 and 495 Our goal was not only to create more volume or to develop contemporary furniture design, but the intelligent extension of the living space.

Individuality Is Not A Question Of Size!
Elegance, speed and excellent sailing qualities are standard, as are the selftacking jib and twin-wheel steering. Would you like a fold-out swimming platform, teak deck, a cockpit table with an integrated chartplotter or elegant composite steering wheels? Decide for yourself!
Internationally renowned designers have been concentrating on the style, functions and design of the loft-style yacht interiors. We have invented the HANSE Individual Cabin Concept just for you, as we strongly feel that you should benefit from the variability of the cabin concepts. And of course, you decide on the selection of wood, materials and colours. We could not take that away from you.
The HANSE 385 is actually already perfect, but you can still make it better. You can add a heater or air conditioner, high-end navigation electronics, a cockpit refrigerator box or a classically laid teak deck. We have turned lots of popular extras into shrewd feature packages. It is the details that make a perfect yacht your dream boat.
A yacht’s cabin concept has to account for the demands and habits of both captain and crew. We do not feel it right to decide if you require three cabins, or if the pantry with large work areas and maximum storage space is essential. HANSE invented the Individual Cabin Concept, and with it a freedom of design that can only be achieved on individualised yachts – all at the standard price.
We are the third largest series yacht builder in the world and build your HANSE using the most advanced assembly line technology. Designers use the latest CATIA V5 software to create components which are precise and millimetre accurate. Hundreds of clever minds and skilled hands contribute to every HANSE yacht. But no amount of technology can replace passion, experience and respect for the sea. A HANSE yacht is created at the waterfront, there where sailing is at home.
