Hanse 588 Details

The Hanse 588 luxury sailboat is not only one of the most popular models for the Hanse Yachts line, but it also recently won the 'Best Large MonoHull 50 Feet And Above' award given out by SAIL Magazine in 2018. Described as a sporty, agile, spacious, and comfortable sailing cruiser, the 588 offers easy sailing with its intuitive design. Those wishing to design their own Hanse 588 can choose from up to 12 layout variations which can include up to 5 double-cabins as well as a spacious owner's suite.

The exterior of the Hanse 588 is distinctive and elegant with beautiful lines for a traditional look. There is no mistaking the 588 for anything less but a serious cruising yacht capable of high performance sailing, yet there is a sense of comfort all around that softens its aggressive details. Here are some of the 588's main features:

  • The rig is high on the 588 which 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 while also maintaining good balance.
  • The 588 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 better performance and there is a backstay included which can also be easily adjusted. 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 588 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.

As mentioned above, the Hanse 588 can be designed with up to 5 cabins for an exciting adventure with a group of friends or family. The interior of the 588 is beautifully designed, light, well-ventilated, and equipped with everything you need for your boating journey. The furnishings are all hand-crafted with the best possible materials. Seating is abundant and preparing meals in the spacious galley for everyone on board is a delight. Cupboards are smartly organized for extra storage and unique accents integrate the pantry right into the salon.

The luxurious master suite is quiet thanks to noise insulation and spacious as it uses the full beam. Large hullside windows allow light to penetrate the lower deck and a skylight opens to allow in fresh air. The king-sized berth will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready for a new day exploring the ocean. The simply is no better interior design today on a sailboat than Hanse Yachts.

The Hanse 588 also has a tender launching system making it easy to anchor and explore the shoreline. The transom bathing platform is hydraulic and lowers into the water allowing the tender to slide off and re-board with ease.
