The Hanse 348 was named Boat of the Year by Cruising World in 2019 for good reason. Built to greet the elements with a smile, the HANSE 348 features a higher rig and sportier sail plan to guarantee maximum performance and outstanding Easy Sailing. Below deck, two double cabins and a generous number of windows make for a fascinating, fresh breeze.
The Hanse Easy Sailing concept makes this boat simple to sail using one of its twin wheels. All lines are lead aft, and the jib is self-tacking. All the skipper needs to do to execute a tack is turn the wheel. The fully-battened mainsail has lazy jacks and a lazy bag on top of the boom, so it drops right down into the bag and zips up for storage.
