Hanse Yachts have completed the 8 Series with the presentation of the new Hanse 458 and the new Hanse 508. Both yachts embody the modern sailing yacht: seaworthiness and elegance, sportiness and comfort, functionality and design.
Both new yachts will celebrate world premieres at the Yachting Festival Cannes from the 11 to 16 September.
All Hanse yachts can be equipped with a wireless induction pad for charging smartphones. The Scanstrut technology is exclusively reserved for the HanseYachts AG for one year and offers elegant charging of smartphones from different manufacturers.
The new 8 Series embodies quality, performance and comfort. The new Hanse 458 is no exception and already holds a lot of promise. 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. This makes the interior even larger with the loft-like design coming to its full advantage. The new Hanse can be built in the owner’s version with a large master cabin in the bow or with four double cabins for more guests on board.
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.
The newly developed subframe structure of the new Hanse 508 was specially designed for the innovative mast-keel connection. As in the Hanse 458, the free-standing mast pole is now replaced by the new carbon composite main bulkhead. 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. In the layout version D3, the Hanse 508 gets a utility room with a washing machine in addition to the four bathrooms.
