Hanse 531

If extended cruising is on your agenda with the family this yacht will tick the box as it offers massive volume for a reasonable price. 

As you drop below decks you step into a large saloon, galley & nav station, 2 large twin quarter berths with ensuite aft and a full master dbl & ensuite forward. 

Above deck is a huge raised cockpit with twin helms aft, loads of deck space and steps leading down to a hydraulic drop platform that opens to reveal a huge water toy garage aft. 

This yacht is easily sailed shorthanded with all halyards & sheeting runs aft to the cockpit, electric winches, Autopilot & Bow thruster. 

"Exceptional value" is how we would sum up this yacht. 

We have this Yacht on our Westhaven Sales arena open for inspection
