Quick Look: Hanse 630e

Carol Vernon reviews this top notch cruiser for the CW 2010 Sailboat Show


With a rig towering 102′ above the water and the optional lifting, deep draft keel, this boat could comfortably cruise the world and humble a few racing boats along the way. The new flagship of the Hanse fleet is designed by Judel/Vrolijk and has a sleek and racy look like the smaller models. The brochure shows four interior layouts that range from 3 king sized bunks to 9 single bunks, and undoubtedly more cabin combinations are available. A 99% self tacking jib is standard and will allow a couple to short tack up channels with ease. Even the optional 105% genoa shouldn’t tax the crew although the 3,078 sq ft gennaker might require extra hands.
