Hanse Yachts has recently developed its new Premium Class department, with the resultant release of its new flagship design, the Hanse 78 Premium. This innovative concept offers features and details that are the result of feedback from owners of the Hanse 630 (the company’s current flagship). The first 78 is due for launch in launch in 2012-2013.

The new Hanse 78 to be customised with an impressive array of selected wood finishes, upholstery, fabrics and interior layouts. The only prerequisites are the high performance of the vessel and her hull and deck. Special attention was given to designing a large living space on deck, with a spacious cockpit area comprising separate steering stations and an aft deck offering convenient access to both the sea and the generous owners’ cabin.

Thanks to the high freeboards, the yacht also features sufficient bulwark height to enable perfectly safe movement on deck. The Hanse 78 also features plenty of glass surfaces on deck as well as numerous hull port lights. The transom garage is large enough for all kinds of toys: Performance tenders for waterskiing, jet watercraft, scuba diving gear and more. Below decks, Hanse Yachts is promising a higher level of customization.

The epoxy construction performance hull and tall carbon rig combined with an optimised keel are designed by naval architects from Judel/Vrolijk – some of the best in the world. This makes the 24-metre Hanse 78 a super reliable yacht capable of smooth and easy handling under sails, at high speeds, in all weather conditions, and with a minimal crew. Customers will receive personal consultation from a Hanse Premium Class technical adviser, who will follow the whole project from the initial expression of interest through to completion and handover.


The new 78 will be built in an epoxy/E-glass UD/sandwich construction with carbon tapes to enhance the stiffness of the hull and bottom section, the deck and the integrated strongback.
