Hand-made in Montenegro… Please meet "Lana", one of the 5 so-far built "Arsenalkas", small wooden boat built by Nenad Bokovac in his workshop in Bar.
It started with an invitation to their first Latin sail Cup in Bar in June 2015. Ever since, Avel Yachting's team has been thinking dreaming about the sailing jewels Nenad Bokovac is manufacturing with so much talent. There HAD to be something we could do to cooperate with this talented man and his lovely family. This is how Marjan came to the idea of giving them their first set of brand new North Sails sails for free. Plus one of their boats, Lana, would be berthed in Porto Montenegro for the whole summer for people to see, admire, test, and maybe buy a similar beauty. Now the sails have arrived, they have been installed on Lana, and our guys have even gone out for a test sail… they had a blast!
The boat is now visible in Venice Square, Porto Montenegro close the Blu 26 fleet of the marina. To schedule a meeting to get more info or book a test sail please contact us!
Here is a slideshow of the boat's arrival in Porto Montenegro and its preparation: rigging, sail installation and test sail!
WINNER OF THE 2016 EUROPEAN YACHT AWARD: THE NEW HANSE 315 – THE ONE FOR ALL COLOURS OF LIFE
Winner in the Family Cruiser category:
A family-friendly pocket cruiser, the Hanse 315 has a seductive hull shape that proves a delight to sail and has the beam for cockpit and aft cabin space. The 315 stimulates the small end of the new yacht market admirably. Space is apportioned wisely, with standing headroom and a great aft cabin. The Hanse 315 is a highly versatile and impressive new compact cruiser.
The Hanse shipyard focused precisely on these properties during the development of the Hanse 315. With high-quality equipment, a performance people have come to expect from a Hanse and with a confident style that leaves no questions unanswered. With you and most likely also among your jetty neighbours.
The new Hanse 315 fulfills the requirements of all future owners, regardless of whether you prefer sporty sailing, relaxing holidays or spending time together on board with family and friends.
Distinctive features such as the steep stem, the short overhangs and the deep keel give the new Hanse 315 elegant lines and significantly more activity under sail. The positive sheer gives an elegant and sporty impression, the flat structure underlines the dynamic line. Outstanding sailing properties thanks to a well-balanced sail area create a sense of security.
The new Hanse 315 is supplied with tiller control as standard and can also be equipped with twin steering wheels as an option. The deep L-keel with 1.85 m enables extremely reliable control. This is why the Hanse 315 is the first in its class to receive CE category A. A shallow keel with a draught of 1.37 m is optionally available.

On deck, the well thought-out deck layout with intelligent use of space is visible: The voluminous anchor locker with optional anchor winch is located in the bow with sufficient storage space for the anchor and mooring ropes. Directly behind it, there is the characteristic Hanse self-tacking jib rail as standard for “easy sail” operation.
A traveller is available in the cockpit, which improves the trim of the mainsail significantly. The stern is open, but the cockpit is still very protected. The stern can be closed off completely with a bathing platform or, when open, offers more space for the children to play. If the steering wheels are chosen, the large folding cockpit table transforms the cockpit into a 5-star restaurant.
Inside, the Hanse 315 is light and airy. Scratch-resistant glass panes in the structure and ample portholes let in lots of light and air. There is a large amount of storage space in the saloon, the pantry and the cabins, as well as in the large storage locker.
The Hanse 315 offers enough space for a crew of 4 people. There is an impressive standing height of 1.91 m in the companionway, with 1.77 m in the bow. The standing height in the functional areas like the pantry, companionway and head is achieved via a lowered floor, which means that the exterior structure remains flat and elegant.
Two layout versions are available in the bow. Either with an open bulkhead and large double berth, or with a closed bulkhead, small seat and a variable double berth. Astern, there is a double guest berth under the cockpit, which provides a comfortable king size berth. All berths have a length of over 2.0 m and are perfect for spending cozy nights on board.
Yet another benefit of this breathtaking yacht is the price: with a basic price ex shipyard of 59,900,-- Euro (ex VAT), the Hanse 315 is unbeatably attractive.
