2021 Hanse 460 Yacht seen from outside and inside. In an exciting pitch, the #yacht designers from Berret-Racoupeau in La Rochelle stood out with a vision that offers a new hull design, as well as a highly versatile cockpit and interior design. Together with the development team from Hanse, a family cruiser was developed with the aim of setting new standards in terms of easy handling, individualisation and sailing performance. And all this in a sporty, modern exterior design as well as an outstanding interior design, equipped with exclusive details.
Andreas Unger, Hanse Product Manager: “Our new Hanse 460 is a Hanse through and through. With the flexible option list, the customer can configure the boat in countless variations, both on deck and below. Furthermore, we have put a lot of emphasis on a finely balanced sailing performance based on a tall rig with a large sail area, various keel options and a clever deck layout. Combined with the new, sporty design and the easy handling typical of Hanse, the result is an all-round winning package.”
Hull: The newly developed, hydrodynamic hull manages the balancing act between a narrow waterline, for better hull speed, and a wide hull above the waterline with chines fore and aft, giving the greatest possible interior space. The reverse bow makes the boat pitch less in strong winds, while the pronounced bow chines keep the foredeck as dry as possible.
Deck: The new deck design has 14 opening hatches and eight opening windows to offer maximum light and ventilation below deck. Many smart options allow the cockpit to be optimally customised. These include an electrically lowering bathing platform with stairs, a wetbar with sink and grill, as well as telescopic davits that can be lowered flush to the cockpit floor when not in use. The optional hardtop can be fitted with a fixed windscreen and solar panels to generate renewable power, and fits perfectly with the boat’s aerodynamic silhouette.
