Hanse 460 is “European Yacht of the Year 2022”
The Hanse 460 has been named “European Yacht of the Year 2022” by an international jury of experts. Due to corona, the award ceremony was held online again this year, as the water sports show boot Düsseldorf, where the awards are traditionally presented at the flagship gala, had to be cancelled once more.
In the Family Cruiser category, the Hanse 460 prevailed against renowned competitors such as the Dufour 470 or the Oceanis 34, and was thus able to claim the world’s most important award in the sailboat industry.
The Hanse 460 combines radically innovative design with traditional Hanse values such as fast cruising and easy sailing. 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 new deck design has 14 opening hatches and eight opening windows to offer maximum light and ventilation below deck.
Generous sail areas of 114sqm upwind and 234sqm downwind point to the enormous performance potential of the Hanse460. The standard bowsprit with integrated anchor arm serves as a forward tack point for headsail and gennaker and can take a second forestay for genoa or reacher.
No fewer than 48 layout combinations give customers every opportunity to configure their Hanse 460 to suit their needs.
