Broker's comments

A perfectly maintained Hanse 540e built in 2009 with the long keel (draft 2,8m) which allows a reduced ballast that is giving her excellent sailing performance. She had a complete rig refit in 2020/2021 with a new Selden aluminium furling mast , new stainless steel standing rigging, new main sail, new battery packs, new coppercoat etc. She has a luxurious 3 cabin layout with a large master cabin with ensuite bathroom in the bow and 2 aft cabins with each their own ensuite bathroom. She was always privately owned and used. She is now in the yard where she will be serviced and ready to go.
