HanseYachts is presenting another top model: the new Hanse 455. Powerful and athletic. Striking and distinctive like a typical Hanse model, the new Hanse 455 breaks all boundaries. The strong rig brings the performance on the water. The boat is also characterised by extraordinary equipment and quality materials which guarantee a grand appearance typical of Hanse.
The Hanse 455 has a total length of 13.95 m, a water line length of 12.20 m and a width of 4.38 m. Two keel versions are available: the standard T-keel with 2.25 m, an L-shape keel with 2.25 m and an L-shape short keel with 1.82 m. The boat is controlled with two steering wheels and one rudder. A Volvo Penta D2-55 with 53 hp (39kW) and saildrive is installed as standard.
The standard interior of the new Hanse 455 includes 3 cabins, with an extension option in the forward cabin area with 2 cabins to make a total of 4 cabins. This is particularly interesting for charter companies. There is a choice between two extension options in the centre segment. A generous U-shaped sofa on the starboard and a comfortable bench on the backboard is offered as standard, with the option of replacing the bench on the backboard with a small table and two swiveling chairs. The spacious, light-filled cabins are combined with two wet areas. As usual with Hanse models, the forward cabin is equipped with a WC and basin on the backboard and a spacious shower on starboard; almost like home. The second wet area is located on the backboard at the rear of the saloon and is also equipped with a large partitioned off shower. The new Hanse 455 also offers ample storage space. In the cockpit, there is a large storage locker under the benches and in cockpit floor, as well as storage compartments for smaller equipment items, such as binoculars and mobile phones, on the deck hatchway. There is also a large sail locker in the bow which can be accessed from the deck and offers ample space for sails, fenders and items such as on-board bicycles.
Light and air is distributed through the entire boat via the 20 portholes on-board, which helps to create a pleasant cabin climate and makes the area below deck unbelievably light. The new Hanse 455 also has the largest cockpit in its class. This gives future owners enough space to sail in comfort and for spending relaxing hours in the port. Large pods on the steering pedestals which fit harmoniously in the overall image of the boat hold all the important instruments and control panels for navigation and the function of the boat. The deck is easy to operate and is designed so that the yacht can also be sailed with just a small crew. This is achieved with the help of the self-turning jib included as standard and the winches close to helmsman position. The helmsman position can be used to operate all halyards and sheets. To underline the sense of well-being afforded by the new Hanse 455 even further, the Hanse Design Team has come up with something very special: on the cabin superstructure in front of the mast, there is the option of a large sun lounger, which is perfect for relaxing!
Avel Yachting hoisted the first 3Di sails in Montenegro! This is the latest technology in sail maiking that we have tried in Tivat bay. With a slow wind, we had a great sailing thanks to amazing performances of these sails!
3Di™ is a unique, patented sailmaking technology that allows laminated sails to approach the balanced loadbearing and shapeholding of a rigid airfoil. In simplified technical terms, 3Di is a flexible composite membrane built from spread filament tapes pre-impregnated with glue, arranged in multiple axes to form a membrane and then thermo-formed on a 3-dimensional (3DL) mold.
With 3Di technology, designers have such precise control over the placement and orientation of material within the sail, they can come far closer to achieving balanced resistance to distortion in all directions. Less distortion = more drive.
The newest Hanse model will celebrate its world premiere at the "Festival de la Plaisance 2013" (10 -15 September) in Cannes! The new Hanse 505 will celebrate its premiere in Holland beforehand at HISWA Amsterdam (3 -8 September)!
The official presentation of the ship will take place on the first day of the trade fair, Tuesday, 10 September, at 12 midday in Cannes. All our customers, representatives from the press and trade fair visitors are invited to join us! Come along and prepare to be surprised – the new Hanse 505 impresses with elegant lines and a wide range of clever detail solutions!
The thing that sets the Hanse models apart most of all is the endless scope for individualisation - no two ships are the same!
Almost 1,200 combinations of interior layouts, wood for the furniture and floors, upholstery and much more are available to create an individual design of the Hanse 505. Below deck, there is space for up to five comfortable cabins plus a skipper cabin and up to three wet areas. A large number of hatches provide natural light to create a bright and cosy atmosphere.
The new Hanse 505 not only sets trends - its concept will also set the standards in its class for the future!
Don't miss this opportunity to see this trend-setting ship up close and book a viewing appointment now!
There is nothing quite like the Tofinou 9.5, with its sleek combination of teak, varnished mahogany and metallic finishes. Concealed low friction rigging, carbon spars and bow-sprit and high-tech sails ensure this is a light responsive boat to handle with sparkling performance. All this is combined with simple accommodation and an inboard diesel engine. Porto Montenegro have choosen Avel Yachting to be responsible for rigging of this beauty.
