Hanse 400e - Altaira - $206,000

'Altaira', a 2009 Hanse 400e is now proudly and exclusively for sale with the YOTI team in Queensland.

The 400's is a popular Hanse and the 'e'poxy versions are particularly sought after. Hanse's are particularly known for their ability to tick boxes in terms of performance, ease of handling, style and quality. This generation Hanse boasted the T "speed" keel, with low centre of gravity. The epoxy hull means a lighter, stiffer and stronger hull compared to alternative brands and materials of the same era.

The cockpit is spacious and comfortable with a centrally mounted steering wheel, large protective sprayhood with clears and a full helmsman bimini. All halyards and control lines are led aft to the cockpit winches, with the starboard companionway winch being electric, to facilitate hoisting the mainsail. Her Quantum Cruise laminate full batten mainsail and overlapping genoa are in good order, complemented by a practically new MPS, which is flown from the dedicated stemhead padeye. Onboard are also the original and older main and self-tacking job.

Electronics are by Simrad with wind and nav instruments in the cockpit, auto-pilot, VHF and multifunction navigation displays at each helm. A real bonus is the 12v Katadyn 80 Watermaker, which makes about 15l/h whilst drawing less than 10 amps.

Altaira has the versatile three-cabin layout giving great flexibility for both accommodation and storage while still having generous cockpit lockers. The main saloon is light and airy, in satin varnished American Cherry style joinery with off-white bulkheads. It features a large U-shaped settee to starboard, a central dining table which lowers to form an additional double bunk, and a desk/nav station with two comfortable armchairs to port. This makes for a dual-purpose work/social area and maximizes this area. The generous owner's cabin is forward, with a large, centrally mounted double berth with good light and ventilation, seats and plenty storage. Two twin cabins aft also have good storage and ventilation. The spacious head with big shower stall lies to port. To starboard is the well thought out L- shaped galley, with a good working surface, top and front accessed fridge with freezer compartment and double burner stove and oven.

Altaira has been slipped, anti-fouled and polished in November this year ('20) and is ready for this upcoming season.
