Hanse 315 Details

The Hanse 315 might be compact in size at just 31 feet, but stepping on board you'll immediately notice that nothing on this sailboat gives the impression that it's the smallest model in the series. Hanse is a leader in design and innovation and sets the standard in the luxury cruising sailboat market. Easy to sail, high-end performance, and lower deck accommodations that rival much larger boats, the 315 lives up to the Hanse reputation. It has also received numerous awards including the European Yacht of the Year in 2016 and the 2017 winner of the Sailing Today Awards.

As the Hanse Yachts dealer for the west coast of the U.S., Seattle Yachts can help you design your 315 from the layout to the woods, fabric, colors, and more.

The Hanse 315 is the epitome of trend setting, something the Hanse shipyard often likes to do. Its exhilarating performance, seemingly unlimited customization options, clean style, and comfortable conveniences combine to form what may be the perfect sailing yacht under 35 feet.

Here are a few of the Hanse 315's attributes that make it a unique, 

  • The high rig on the 315 allows for a large sail area at the masthead. The wind is normally stable at this height which can increase the speed of the vessel and keep good balance.
  • The 388 has both a steep stern and a straight stem. This design attribute provides a long waterline at any heeling angle which results in superior speed.
  • The sail has been trimmed for optimal performance and there is an adjustable backstay included. This enables both the mast and the profile of the sail to adapt to the wind as it changes.
  • Hanse Yachts invented the integrated self-tacking jib system so all the lines go to the helm. Captains can now sail alone or enjoy more of the time with guests on board without working so much.
  • The deck of the 315 is very smooth and clean. The halyards and sheets are hidden below deck.
  • You have the ability to control the entire Helmsman system from the cockpit.

The main deck of the 315 has a minimalist, clean design that allows for more freedom of movement. The cockpit is an excellent space for lounging or having a meal with friends al fresco. While at anchor, easily lower the bathing platform, expanding the transom, and creating a wonderful sunbathing area.

The exterior of the 315 is only matched by the interior. The overhead windows and hatches provide a gentle breeze and an abundance of natural light. The materials, wood, and furnishings are all as elegant as possible while also having a sense of practicality. Space is plentiful in the salon and the galley is well-equipped to handle meal preparation for multiple guests.

The lower deck layout includes two different variations to best suit the owner's needs. The Hanse 315 offers up to four bunks on board for overnight adventures.
