Description Hanse 540e:

Fast and comfortable performance-cruiser from the drawing board of German designer Judel/Vrolijk & Co. With her powerful sailplan, modern hull lines and efficient appendixes the Hanse 540e offers sparkling performance and lots of fun on the water. Nevertheless she can easily be handled by a small crew thanks to self-tacking jib and the cockpit layout designed for short handed sailing. The clean, unobstructed deck and the square, low coachhouse profile create a very elegant appearance. Spacious, wide cockpit with two helm stations and free access aft to the electro-hydraulic swim platform. Spacious lazarette for the dinghy below aft deck. Hull in stiff, light and very durable construction in epoxy prepreg.

This Hanse 540e is a very well-kept, fully equipped first hand owner's yacht. Comprehensive specification including ONE-Sails 4T-sail wardrobe, top down furling gennaker and code-0, hydraulic gangway, diesel generator, teak deck and electric winches. Numerous replacements and investments during the last three years, such as new batteries, some new navigation electronics, new canvases, etc. Satin varnished cherry interior and 3 cabin layout with double berth to port and single berth to starboard in forward owner's cabin and en suite owner's heads in forepeek.
