Lazyjacks - Dutchman Sail Flaking System
Gemini is a Hanse 375, which was just built for 2 years, in 2010 and 2011. Unlike later Hanse models, she sports a taller rig as standard, with bulkheads that are glassed to both the hull and the deck. Those focused on quality yachts will appreciate that the grid is primarily fiberglassed to the hull, not glued in as common on less expensive production boats.
The Hanse Difference We thank you for your interest. This list has the key features of Hanse Yachts, and information about our dealership.
Background Hanse was formed in 1993 using a Swedish yacht builder’s molds (Aprodite) and workers from a former East German yacht yard.
- The fastest growing sailboat builder in the world, now the 2nd largest. US sales doubled 2005 to 2008, after 6 years in the US market w steady growth. Over 1,000 boats in 2008.
- A management and production team composed of experienced yachtsmen and woman who have competed and won at the highest levels, founded by Michael Schmidt, who ran several winning German Admiral’s Cup teams (with the team from Judel/Vrolijk), and Production Manager Karl Dehler, former CEO / owner of Dehler Yachts.
- Since 1999, all designs by Judel/Vrolijk, now one of the most prestigious firms, having won the America’s Cup.
- More awards. Many of the new Hanse yachts have won European Boat of the Year.
- A true shipyard with direct ocean access, which allows all yachts to be tested at sea, not just in a pool.
Easy to Sail Fast We build for cruisers who like to sail fast, or racers who want a comfortable yacht.
- A moderate hull shape with maximum waterline length and reasonable interior volume for overall performance.
- Finer entry than other cruising yachts for better upwind capabilities and all around performance. Most production boats have entry angle’s of 25-30%. Our entry angle’s are around 21-22%.
- Lead bulb options (415 and up) with steel stubs for better shoal draft performance. Standard deep T keels, all steel. Our Displ/Ballast ratio’s are in the 33-35% range, not 25-30% like most competitors.
- Self Tacking roller furling headsails standard on all models (and have been for over 15 years) with sail plans sized accordingly, not tacked on to models designed for large headsails. Effortless tacking is FUN and fast!
- Hanse’s have higher Sail Area / Displacement ratio’s (over 20% for the 375 and up), allowing the boats to sail well with a small jib even in the light stuff. The Hanse 415 has more area than a Beneteau 49, for example. We race our Hanse 400 (using factory sails) in the St Thomas Rolex, and routinely beat a Jeanneau 54 w racing sails over the line.
- Mainsail available with Dutchman Track systems or Selden MDS slides and Dutchman Sail Flaking System for easy raising and lowering. Main can be raised by hand, and drops easily down to the boom from the cockpit.
- Finger tip steering with self aligning roller type rudder bearings. Most production boats have plain bearings, which make steering a job in any kind of a breeze.
- Tapered Selden or Z Spar masts (385 and up) with 2 or 3 (545) spreader rigs. Less weight aloft for better performance, less heel, no hobbyhorsing. Selden is the finest production spar maker, used on most higher end boats like Hallberg Rassy or Contest (whom I used to be the importer for).
- Hanse’s have many wins, including the 2006 ARC Class B, winning against a Grand Soleil 46.3, 2 Oyster 56’s, etc. with the lowest engine hours in the class. Hanse’s web site has more racing info.
A Comfortable Yacht in Port or Underway A fast yacht can also be a more comfortable yacht.
- More stowage and locker space above and below than other production builders.
- Lots of opening ports and hatches (the 385 has 4 large opening ports, 2 small opening ports, 3 large hatches, 2 small hatches for example) for better ventilation. The 385 also has 4 hull windows.
- Large cabinhouse ports open out on the 385 and up, and can be left open in a light rain. This design is also dryer offshore, as a direct shot of green water pushes the port more securely against the gasket, instead of opening up a gap for water to squirt in. One of my favorite features.
- Flush hatches look great, but are also more watertight offshore, as green water does not have a direct shot at the gasket.
- Aft dingy garage on the 545 and 630.
- The 375/415/445/495 have a cool hinged platform system, allowing either an open transom for racing or a closed off conventional transom for cruising, with an amazing bathing platform.
- Clean, wide decks that are easy to walk around on and go forward on when heeled.
- Gravity drain molded plastic holding tanks with very short hose runs for no tank odor!!
- Sufficient displacement for cruising gear and a comfortable motion offshore.
Beauty and Elegance Hanse offers modern superyacht style in a production yacht.
- Clean, elegant woodwork with flawless varnishing. Of course, if you want wood plastered on every surface with the biggest interior possible, we are not for you. Hanse puts more money into the construction, rig and rudder systems.
- Teak on cockpit seats standard, teak decks available all models. All lines run from mast to helm 385 and up (no slipping on uncovered lines!).
- Pop-up cleats 445-630 and flush hatches standard on all models.
- Modern interiors and furnishings for a clean, contemporary look.
A Better Value Hanse has always worked hard to build quality yachts at a competitive price.
- Classic lines and styling won’t look dated in 10 or 20 years and loose value.
- Production in former East Germany gives significant government incentives.
- Hanse’s own hull molding facility across the border in Poland for low labor costs.
- High volume (est over 1,000 yachts in 2012) allows quality yachts at affordable prices.
- A thicker layer of varnish than any other builder we know of will help keep your Hanse woodwork looking beautiful for far longer than a thin coat of varnish other builders apply. You will not see the grain on properly varnished wood.
- Superb resale value. Hanse does not dump boats into charter fleets, high owner satisfaction means owners keep the boats longer, and quality construction lasts longer. Look how few are on the brokerage market, compared with other yachts.
Strength and Safety A good yacht will take care of you, coastal or offshore.
- Massively strong construction that has proven to withstand hard groundings at over 7 knots.
- Bulkheads and most interior components glassed to the hull. We know of no other mid-high volume production builder who does this.
- Tapered masts for better stability and less healing.
- Reef entirely from the cockpit in 2-3 minutes.
- Non - furling masts for better stability, much better performance, no risk of catastrophic jamming (there are documented cases of boats being lost at sea due to mainsail furling jams).
Customization No other production builder offers the range of options that allow you to make your Hanse truly an expression of your style. Of course, if you like cookie cutter boats, we apologize!
- A choice of 8 hull and stripe colors, 15+ interior fabric or leather options, and 2 different interior wood options.
- Available teak decks all models with low maintenance options.
- Vinylester hull construction on all models. Epoxy / corecell option on larger yachts.
- Mainsheet traveler in cockpit or forward of the companionway – your call.
- Dacron or Laminate sail options.
- Multiple interior layouts for all models to accommodate virtually any use.
One of my favorite boat reviews (because of it’s intelligence and honesty) was done in winds up to 30 knots on the Hanse 37 review in Practical Boat Owner;
“Hanses don’t offer as much space for the money as some other boats for one simple reason: they’re designed to sail. It’s a distinction that sometimes seems to elude people. I never cease to be amazed by some of the boats that end up on the same list, and I find it hard to understand how the Hanses are sometimes lumped together with boats of a fundamentally different nature simply because they’re in the same price bracket.” “it’s important to differentiate between boats with beamy, high volume hulls, shallow draught and modest rigs and the finer lined, deeper draught and more generously-canvassed offerings like the Hanses.” They’re aimed at people whose principal interest is cruising, but who like to cruise quickly in a boat that’s enjoyable and responsive to sail. “
And from the conclusion; “With a boat like the Hanse, you’ll be tempted to sail rather than motor whenever you can: her speed, responsiveness and obedience put her in a different league to most of the competition. She’s a boat you will choose to sail for the pleasure of sailing, and not just because bobbing around on the water is more agreeable than sitting in an office.”
Sound Sailing Center Background
- Over 25 years of experience importing and servicing Northern European Yachts (US Importer for the Dutch built Contest Yachts 1962 – 1995), Hanse dealer since 2005. Contest builds custom high end yachts, and we still work with them too.
- We offer superior service. In 1986, Practical Sailor noted in a review that “The Contest boats have developed a strong reputation mostly because of attention to detail and good service from their importer.” Likewise, we work hard to give great service to all our Hanse owners. Any one of our Hanse owners can give a strong testimonial.
- Principal (Martin van Breems) has over 30,000 offshore miles in the last 10 years including one of the only Americans to finish the Ostar singlehanded race from Plymouth UK to Newport RI.
- US Sailing certified instruction is available, with intensive seatrials standard.
- The largest sailing school / club in the Metro NY / Southern NE area.
- US Sailing Certified classes and Instruction.
- Club / Membership program for those new to sailing, not ready to buy, or not interested in owning / maintaining a yacht.
- Buyers receive unique lessons in single handed docking and advanced sailing skills.
- We have far more experience than most other dealers. We have sailed our Hanse 400 offshore from CT to Bermuda to St Thomas USVI every year since 07, and have raced her in the St Thomas Yacht Club Rolex (4th in class in 2010. Likewise, in 2008 we raced our Hanse 470 in the Newport Bermuda Race. In 1999 Martin was 2nd over the line (3 days and 1 hour) in the Bermuda 1/2 and has been the captain on 4 Newport / Bermuda races. He also was 2nd in class in the 2000 singlehanded transatlantic race from Plymouth UK to Newport RI. Over 70% of the non-pro’s dropped out of this race.
One 320 delivered, one 370 / one 375, one 385 (6/12), five 400’s, one 415 four 430’s (one 2011), two 470’s one 540, two 545’s (2011) We also did some service on the Michael Schmidt’s 630. All our customers will give us the best recommendation possible for honest business dealing, good pricing, and knowledgeable service. An excellent dealer will make for a far more pleasurable buying experience, and will save you
