Hanse 548 Details

The Hanse 548 is an excellent choice for the sailboat owner who wants freedom, quality, and easy sailing in a manageable vessel. Nominated for the European Yacht of the Year 2018 in the Family Cruiser category, the Hanse 548 features speedy, smooth performance with comfortable and spacious interior accommodations. As with all Hanse Yachts, the opportunities to personalize your new sailboat are plentiful. Select your own layout from several options along with your favorite wood, fabrics, colors, and optional equipment. Seattle Yachts is here to guide you every step of the way through ordering your new Hanse 548.

The exterior profile exhibits classic, elegant lines while the main deck is clean and almost futuristic. The aero-dynamic shape of the deck is eye-catching and combined with the sail shows confidence and style. Designers Judel/vrolijk and Company did a phenomenal job creating a sporty and luxurious sailboat that has fast cruising capabilities. The trademark fast hull line and sail plan are exemplary of what Hanse design has continually achieved with each model. Performance and speed are virtually guaranteed thanks to the combination of a perfect lateral plan and the pre-balanced rudder blade.

Here are some of the features that make the Hanse 548 special:

  • Top performer in the transformation of wind into energy which increases speed and efficiency.
  • High rig for the absolute best sailing characteristics regardless of condition
  • Designed with a steep stern and a straight stem resulting in a long waterline for increased speed.
  • Trimmed sail with adjustable backstay so the mast and profile of the sail with adapt to the wind.
  • The Hanse Easy Sailing Concept allows for sailing alone as well as the ability to enjoy more free time with your guests.
  • Includes the Hanse One-Rope Reff System for easy handling that is quick and effortless.
  • The self-tacking jib assists with easily maneuvering your 548 by gliding the headsail to the correct side over the deck rails.

The Hanse 548 is no stranger to the builder's dedication to being cutting-edge in materials as well as equipment on board. The 548 is equipped with the Hanse Helmsman Control system which essentially allows you to sail with the touch of a button. Control the entire system right from the cockpit. The 548 also features the MYHANSE Safety Cloud for owners which utilizes an app on your smart device to monitor the boat's systems, weather conditions, your service updates, and a log book.

The main deck on the 548 offers a clean and unobstructed sunbathing area. No ropes or wenches are in the way and comfortable steps down to the hydraulic swim platform resemble an extended cockpit. For entertaining outdoors, there is a gourmet island with a barbecue grill, fridge, sink, with comfortable seating. The pedastal table aft provides a wonderful place to enjoy lunch al fresco.

Choose from five different layouts as well on the 548 which can be designed with 8-9 comfortable bunk beds as well as up to 4 separate showers. The interior accommodations throughout have plenty of natural light through portholes and hull-side windows as well as good ventilation. The salon furniture is all hand-crafted and can be personalized to your needs as can the color, fabrics, and wood. The attention to detail from the lamp shades to the indirect light from the windows to the storage spaces hidden in every corner, the 548 is undoubtedly an extremely well thought out sailing yacht.
