Hanse 388 Details

The new Hanse 388 is your gateway to freedom on the sea, unconnected and stress-free. Pack up your supplies, turn off your cell phone, and let the ocean air cleanse your mind of worry. Quiet and smooth, the 388 is a perfect cruising sailboat for sailing alone, as a couple, or with a few friends on board. Whether sunbathing on the cockpit lounge, relaxing on the deck, or dining under the skylight in the salon, the 388 offers flexibility and comfort for all on board.

As the Hanse dealer for the west coast of the U.S., Seattle Yachts can help you design your 388 from the layout to the woods, fabric, colors, and more. Our new yacht build management team has decades of experience helping clients in to the right vessel. We are with you every step of the way as little or as much as you'd like.

Open up a world of possibilities with the Hanse 388's cruising flexibility, durability, and accommodations that allow you to enjoy longer sailing trips. The expansive cockpit and deck offer outdoor relaxation spaces that rival larger sailboats. An exceptional cruiser with the most cutting-edge options and equipment, the possibilities are almost endless on the 388.

Here are a few of the Hanse 388's attributes that make it a unique, 

  • The high rig on the 388 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 388 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 388 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. The transom gate folds down to extend the sitting area and two lounge seats offer a place to enjoy the sun.

The salon is extremely open and light thanks to the skylights featured on all Hanse Yachts. 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 388 offers up to three cabins on board including a master suite in the bow. There is a wardrobeat the backboard and placed on the starboard side. Guest cabins also feature an incredible amount of space and storage, particularly for a sub-40 foot sailing yacht.
