2006 Hanse 400e
Boat Type: Racer and Cruiser Address: Annapolis, MD, US Price: $129,500


Sail Fast - Cruise in Comfort

Comment Straight from Practical Sailor Magazine:

The Hanse 400 is a cruising boat for those who love to sail, and a club racer for those who enjoy a summer cruise. The vessel has the right set of attributes for the light-air conditions of the bays and sounds of the Northeast, Southern California, and Gulf Coast, but will feel right at home on the blusterier bodies of water such as San Francisco Bay. In short, this is a capable performer that offers a lot of bang for the buck.

The Hanse 400e combines performance, easy sail handling and comfort below.  The "e" stands for quality epoxy construction.  This boat combines Hanse's easy handling self tacking jib systems for cruising with secondary jib leads for higher performance sails.  The interior is amazingly open and bright.  10 opening ports for lots of ventilation.

Bel Giorno is a lovely example of the Hanse 400e.  The interior is the desirable 2 cabin version with the large Pullman master cabin.  Clean white surfaces enhance the high gloss cherry word work.  Overall you'll think the interior is of a much newer boat.  On deck, a nice big cockpit with full canvas. Boat has had very light use. July 2019 bottom paint and hull wax.

Bel Giorno is a real looker, don't mis her.
