One of the biggest surprises presented at the recent Boot 2014 boat show in Düsseldorf comes from Hanse Yachts Company.
This time they surprised us with a really big baby whose length exceeds 20 m! It is the Hanse 675 whose length over all is 20.95 m, with 18.70 m of the water line, and the beam that is 5.90 m long. The draft varies between 3 m and 2.60 m as this yacht comes with two keel versions.
The Judel & Vrolijk Co. and Hanse Yachts Design designers’ team decided to adopt successful solutions and details from previous successful models such as the Hanse 575 and the Hanse 630e. Therefore, the brand new Hanse 675 has a flat, harmonious and elegant deck covered with teak with a lot of hatches, windows and skylights.
Accordingly, the loft-like interior is full of daylight, fresh and airy. The proven and successful combination of luxury and sailing performances was used when this Hanse model was designed, so the yacht is equipped with an integrated self-tacking jib and the German mainsheet system, while all other sheets and halyards lead to the helmsman position.
Major winches are equipped with an electric power system for an easy and relaxed trimming and sailing. A dinghy storage place is also adopted from the Hanse 575 and is placed below the cockpit, making the use of the dinghy a child’s play.
The mast length above the water line is approximately 31 m long, and the total sailing area of 253 m2 consists of 138.2 m2 for the mainsail and 115 m2 for 105% genoa. Fuel and water tanks are also impressive with their volume of 1000 l and 1200 l.
The new Hanse 675 has a 30% larger interior volume compared to the previous Hanse 630e model. The interior design at the Hanse 675 is available in the standard and several optional versions, according to customers’ wishes and demands.
Apart from the interior layout, the materials and colors, as well as the safety and navigation packages, can all be customized.
The first model of this gorgeous yacht will be available for sale in late summer 2015.
Prices, customized layouts and orders can be discussed at regional dealers worldwide from the end of January 2014 onward.
I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
