This year’s edition of boot Düsseldorf was the perfect occasion for Hanse Group to show what they have to offer on the powerboats market. Under the slogan be unique, Hanse presents the largest Fjord powerboat so far – the Fjord 48 Open.
Hanse Fjord 48 Open
This 15.28 m long vessel is a work of the renowned designer Patrick Banfield and his partner Allseas Design, and offers a new dimension of luxury and pleasure in the open space. The yacht looks very impressive with her robust and mighty hull and sharp bow, characteristic for Banfield and followed by many. Although the boat is brand new, the design is not really futuristic. Instead, it is powerful and elegant at the same time.
The concept of this yacht emphasizes the open space, so the galley and helm station have a central position. They are covered with an attractive hardtop and a large windshield. The rest of the deck layout is solely for open space pleasure. There is a large sunbathing sofa in the front, while the comfortable cockpit can be whatever a customer wants. You can choose to equip it with retractable double tables and lounge sunbeds.
There is a large storage space below the cockpit. There toys and diving equipment, as well as a powerful tender, can be stored. The interior layout includes a master bedroom with a king-size bed in the bow and a spare bedroom. Spare bedroom is on the starboard side. Again, the design pays a lot of attention to style and elegance. That’s is why there are many materials and colors in terms of upholstery, flooring and furniture.
The safety aspect of the Fjord 48 Open also has to be mentioned. The rather high bulwarks for safe movement during sailing are in line with the elegant appearance of the vessel. It means they are discreet and inconspicuous. Maneuvering and handling the deck equipment are easy and simple thanks to cutting edge electric and hydraulic commands such as an electric anchor arm, a hydraulic platform and joystick docking controls. I would not dare to mention the price of this baby, but I am sure she is for those who want to leave the impression…
The technical information is the cherry on top. The Fjord 48 Open has two and optionally three Volvo IPS 600 engines. They provide the acceleration of up to 40 knots! The thirst of the mighty engines runs on fuel in the 2.08 l capacity fuel tank, while fresh water is in a tank that holds as much as 290 l. Waste water is in a 200 l tank.
I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
