Style and class wins Hanse Yachts the EYOTY 2016 Family Cruiser award
Style, class and a certain degree sex appeal. Can we expect these virtues from a sailing yacht? Hanse Yachts states: absolutely! The German yacht builder focused precisely on these properties during the development of the Hanse 315. With high-quality equipment, a performance people have come to expect from a Hanse and with a confident style that leaves no questions unanswered. The new Hanse 315 fulfils the requirements of all future owners, regardless of whether they prefer sporty sailing, relaxing holidays or spending time together on board with family and friends.
Elegant and sporty Distinctive features such as the steep stem, the short overhangs and the deep keel give the new Hanse 315 elegant lines and significantly more activity under sail. The positive sheer gives an elegant and sporty impression, the flat structure underlines the dynamic line. Outstanding sailing properties thanks to a well-balanced sail area create a sense of security. The new Hanse 315 is supplied with tiller control as standard and can also be equipped with twin steering wheels as an option. The deep L-keel with 1.85 m enables extremely reliable control. This is why the Hanse 315 is the first in its class to receive CE category A. A shallow keel with a draught of 1.37 m is optionally available.
On deck The deck layout shows an intelligent use of space: The voluminous anchor locker with optional anchor winch is located in the bow with sufficient storage space for the anchor and mooring ropes. Directly behind it, there is the self-tacking jib rail as standard for “easy sail” operation. A traveller in the cockpit improves the trim of the mainsail significantly. The stern is open, but the cockpit is still very protected. The stern can be closed off completely with a bathing platform. If the steering wheels are chosen, the large folding cockpit table transforms the cockpit into a 5-star restaurant.
Interior Inside, the Hanse 315 is light and airy. Scratch-resistant glass panes in the structure and ample portholes let in lots of light and air. There is a large amount of storage space in the saloon, the pantry and the cabins, as well as in the large storage locker. The Hanse 315 offers enough space for a crew of 4 people. There is an impressive standing height of 1.91 m in the companionway, with 1.77 m in the bow. The standing height in the functional areas like the pantry, companionway and wetroom is achieved via a lowered floor, which means that the exterior structure remains flat and elegant. Two layout versions are available in the bow. Either with an open bulkhead and large double berth, or with a closed bulkhead, small seat and a variable double berth. Astern, there is a double guest berth under the cockpit, which provides a comfortable king size berth. All berths have a length of over 2.0 m and are perfect for spending cozy nights on board.
