Hanse 495 - Takani - $449,000

Takani, a 2012 Hanse 495, represents one of the best examples we've seen of these well renowned big volume cruising yachts, and is now proudly and exclusively listed for sale with YOTI.

This Hanse 495 has been a very well cared for member of the family who have owned her since new and has been intelligently optioned. Twin wheels, self-tacking headsail, electric winches, with bow thruster, all make for easy handling while the yachts performance will very much impress. All lines are led aft to the twin helms allowing the coachroof to be completely clear of lines or winches. Impressively, for a larger yacht, she can be easily sailed by one person or two up.

The massive owner's cabin forward features an island berth with inner spring mattress and completely separate head and shower spaces. The well ventilated and lit saloon includes the full in-line galley to port with excellent refrigeration plus additional freezer (upgrade). Huge double hull windows bring the outside world in when desired. The large saloon table is folding plus the central island bar neatly conceals the retractable TV while offering further storage. A practical dedicated forward facing nav station sits to starboard. A second head with shower is to port and two large double cabins are found aft. The Volvo 75Hp boasts good front and side access and the Fisher Panda genenrator neatly sits above. Reverse cycle air conditioning was an important factory upgrade. A solid navigation package was chosen which includes a colour plotter in the cockpit, auto-pilot and HF radio.

Takani's sail wardrobe has been beefed up nicely along the way by Northsails and includes a new mainsail in 2015, overlapping genoa, self tacking headsail, heavy weather jib (on additional removable inner-forestay) plus three asymmetric kites and a furling Code Zero.

Takani has only just been only recently slipped, serviced and anti-fouled in February 2018 and a maintenance summary since launch is available.

Please contact Peter Mactier for further details on this truly impressive yacht, and to arrange an inspection.
