New for 2011 the Hanse 495 is at Sydney Boat Show

New for 2011, the Hanse 495 is… quite simply… ahead of its time.

This yacht is sleek and contemporary with a fabulous, striking eyebrow.

On deck all lines lead aft offering clean uncluttered deck. With standard electric winches and a self-tacking headsail; you have a 49 foot yacht you can easily sail single handed.

Your guests can relax in the comfortable, spacious cockpit and watch the world go by. They don’t need to move when you tack and there’s nothing for them to trip over if they feel like heading up onto the foredeck to sunbake.

And just in case you’re wondering how yachts with self-tackers perform – you can be re-assured that the trademark Hanse sleek hull design, long waterline length and high aspect rig will keep you ahead of the pack.

The 495 handles beautifully thanks to the long rudder and top quality Jefa yacht steering system. And new for 2011, Hanse has developed a new ‘Smart Berthing System’.  This is a combination of a bow and stern-thruster. It brings you ‘parking by joystick’ and a lovely stress-free end to your sailing trip.

The 495 is a categorised by GL as A – Ocean Going.

Internationally acclaimed interior designers Birgit Schnaase Interior Design SID have taken yacht interior design to the next level with the Hanse 495.

The overall feel when you come down the stairs is one of space and light. The hull windows are a fantastic new edition to the large Hanses – you can enjoy sea views while you cook or relax on the lounge.

The long galley boasts heaps of bench space and is brilliantly equipped with extra touches like an espresso maker and twin drawer fridges making your yacht a home away from home.

There’s heaps of versatility for you to choose from with the layout. You can opt to have your owner’s cabin forward with a separate shower room and head. Or you can choose a huge aft owner’s cabin with ensuite bathroom.

And with 31 sold in the first 8 weeks after launch…it seems the world agrees that the Hanse 495 is something very special. Team Windcraft have now presold 3 and have 2 more preordered for Christmas delivery.

Because of the strength of the Aussie Dollar and the buying power of the Hanse group the 495 is unbelievable value.
