Hanse 355 – Pinot – May 2015

Bill wanted a near new, high capacity and easy to handle yacht to suit living aboard, coastal cruising and entertaining the grand kids. The 2012 Hanse 415 Matadore was perfect with the self-tacking headsail and big cockpit with the awesome swim platform. Enjoy the trip north Bill!

Hanse 370e – My Turn – May 2015


After being based on Port Stephens for the last few years, the Hanse 370e My Turn returned to Sydney after being purchased by Robyn and her offsider and tactician Paul!
