Hanse 385 – La Madre – May 2016 Published in May 31, 2016 Go! We were lucky enough to run the campaign for this 2012 Hanse 385 in beautiful Port Stephens. Experienced cruisers Marc and Sharron had owned and cruised extensively multiple mono’s and most recently a trimaran. Years of family cruising had allowed them to discover what they wanted in a late model mono. The Hanse 385 appealed due to space above and below decks (especially the large galley!), ease of handling with the self-tacking headsail, great performance, and build quality plus the option to beef up the sail wardrobe with a gennaker without any major mod’s. La Madre now resides very close to where she was first launched by Team Windcraft on Pittwater.
