** NOW SOLD - CLICK TO VIEW SIMILAR LISTINGS **

Akaroa is a 2011 Hanse 400 that is now listed exclusively for sale with YOTI on Pittwater. 

Akaroa was one of the very last 400's imported into the country and is offered for sale by her original owner. The Hanse 400's were the most successful model to date globally under the German manufacturers. This is a much loved easy to handle performer all in a magic 40 foot package and Akaroa has a comprehensive inventory and presents in excellent condition. Being one of the latest 400's she was smartly chosen with twin wheels. 

Her layout is versatile being the three cabin footprint (large owner's cabin forward and double aft to starboard) plus the third cabin space to port is currently used as a storage area/ sail locker (with custom storage dividers and racks) and could easily be used for accommodation if chosen. 

Akaroa boasts an impressive inventory plus almost every important extra was chosen on original order. Instruments are by Simrad and Raymarine and include a new chart plotter in the cockpit (2019) with AIS and importantly the under deck autopilot is included. 

Being a Hanse, the self-tacking jib makes for seriously easy shorthanded sailing plus the sail wardrobe includes an overlapping genoa (on the factory fitted adjustable cars and tracks) plus an asymmetric spinnaker / gennaker. This is an extremely flexible sail plan. An electric halyard winch makes hoisting the main a pleasure. 

An inflatable dinghy and outboard are included. 

Akaroa is the best specified 400 we have seen in years plus her condition will genuinely impress.
