New Hanse 455 - European Success Story Comes to Sydney The Hanse 455 is the latest model from the Hanse Five Series – a distinctive and powerful 45 ft performance yacht with contemporary design and flexible layout options.

A few years ago the average size of cruising yacht new buyers aspired to own was 40 ft. Nowadays a 45 ft yacht is more the norm. In designing the new 455, Hanse have created more space and a larger performance rig than the previous model, yet the yacht is still easy to handle.

This model is making waves in Europe and setting new standards for yachts in this class. The overall look of the 455 is sleek and ultra modern. It has a very large and innovative cockpit for a 45 ft yacht - giving owners plenty of storage options and enough space for sailing in comfort or relaxing in port. Big hull windows mean a saloon and galley with a sea view and with the increased number of opening hatches there is create extra light and ventilation throughout the spacious accommodation below deck.

The performance rig is 10 percent bigger than the previous model and well balanced for sailing fast with ease. All halyards, sheets, trimming and reefing lines run completely covered by the deck to the aft helm positions creating a neat deck This - with Hanse’s trademark self-tacking headsail - means the 455 is ideal for single-handed sailing or for enjoying a day on the water with a crew experienced or not.

Other design features include - a T-speed keel with strong, high quality stainless steel bolts, an elegant hull deck with safe bulwark and a coach roof with integrated, curved, flush hatches. The Hanse 455 has the choice of 3 or 4 cabins and multiple interior finish options.

Mary Bickley, Hanse Brand Manager for Team Windcraft commented 'We are seeing more buyers wanting more space. The Hanse 400 was a very popular size choice for many and we see the 455 as the natural progression. People can now have a 45 foot yacht that is easy to handle. It is perfect for the Australian market. ’
