2004 Hanse 531 is now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.
Privately owned since new boat and continuously being well maintained and upgraded/equipped for serious offshore cruising.
The 531 is an extremely stable platform, with substantial stability to ensure stiff upwind sailing and minimal roll at anchor.
Her 2-cabin layout is extremely spacious and luxurious. She is akin to a modern apartment but floating.
Her original owner commissioned her in Pittwater and as well as cruising her 2 handed with his wife, the owners successfully club raced her also short-handed. This was possible due to electric winches and self-tacking jib. A brilliant and simple system.
Powered by a Yanmar diesel 100hp engine, 4.5kva genset, electric winches, Simrad electronics, HF and VHF radios, Avon tender 3.1m, 15hp Mercury + additional 3hp Mercury, sleeps 5 in 2 cabins, 2 private bathrooms, gas stove and oven, microwave, BBQ, watermaker 30L/H.
Since new, this yacht has had most of her life being pampered on a marina berth and has just returned from a successful 6-month coastal cruise of the East coast.
Suits someone looking for a turnkey sea change.
