'Hakuna Matata', a 2006 Hanse 400e, is now proudly and exclusively for sale with YOTI in Manly, Queensland.
The 400 is a popular Hanse, and the 'e' poxy versions are particularly sought after. Hanses are known for their ability to tick boxes in terms of performance, ease of handling, style and quality. The epoxy hull means a lighter, stiffer, and stronger hull compared to alternative brands and materials of the same era.
On deck, her cockpit is spacious and comfortable with a centrally mounted steering wheel, large protective sprayhood with clears and a helmsman bimini. A canvas infill connects sprayhood with the bimini to shade the entire cockpit. All canvas work was renewed in '22. The halyards and control lines are led aft to the cockpit winches, the main and jib sheets can be taken to the aft winches for easy single-handed sailing. The Rolly Tasker self-tacking jib and fully battened mainsail are new this year, and there is a Hood MPS with a prodder. There are factory-fitted genoa tracks for anyone who wants to add larger foresails later.
Electronics are by Simrad / B & G with wind, nav instruments and autopilot in the cockpit and VHF and multifunction navigation display at the chart table. WiFi was fitted in 2023 for Navionics connection to iPad/iPhone.
'Hakuna Matata' has the versatile three-cabin layout, giving great flexibility for both accommodation and storage while having generous cockpit lockers. The main saloon is light and airy, in gloss-varnished American Cherry style joinery with off-white bulkheads. The prominent owner's cabin is forward, with a large, off-set double berth, good light and ventilation, a seat, and plenty of storage. The 'U' shaped saloon is to starboard, and the table lowers for an additional Queen-size berth. The switchboard/nav station/coffee table seating is to port. The galley has a good size, user-friendly worktop, a bottom and top loading fridge, and a double burner stove with oven. The large head space includes a separate shower stall with a solid screen. Finally, there are two double aft cabins.
Hakuna Matata presents beautifully down below and on deck. Standing rigging was renewed in 2019, along with most running rigging and a new Furlex furler. She's powered by a Yanmar 40 with a folding prop, serviced in Sep '23.
'Hakuna Matata' has been slipped, antifouled (incl. Propspeed) and hull polished in May '23, and she is ready for the upcoming season.
