Hanse 455 - Tranquilo - $485,000

'Tranquilo' is a current model Hanse 455 launched in just 2017 that is now listed exclusively for sale with team YOTI in Sydney.

She is one of the best equipped very late model Hanses in the world for Bluewater cruising. With her spacious cockpit, swim platform and sun drenched interior in excellent condition, she is also a joy to sail inshore and to host family and friends.

Current model, ready now and offered for sale at a huge saving on new.

Hanses are well known for being fast, well built cruisers and for ease of handling. They stand out from many other high volume production boats in their solid construction, with hand laid fibreglass and glassed in bulkheads providing for a very stiff hull and intelligent design. Their Selden rigging system, with self tacking headsail and all lines leading to the twin helms, makes for easy short-handed sailing while delivering exceptional performance.

Tranquilo's current owners have been meticulous in ensuring that she is always in top condition while delivering her from Europe to Australia. Tranquilo carries an extensive supply of new unopened spare parts, including an MDI (engine Mechanical Diesel Interface), alternator, starter motor, engine filters, water pump, VHF antenna, and anodes.

The mainsail and self-tacking jib were upgraded plus a second unused mainsail is included. A furling Gennaker makes for fast exciting sailing. Power generation is covered while sailing with a Watt & Sea 600W Cruising Hydrogenator and solar panel. The inbuilt Barbecue at the transom looks great and is seriously practical.

Accommodation consists of the large owner's cabin forward with private head and shower, plus two large double aft cabins. The saloon is positioned on starboard and two seater sofa on port side plus dedicated navigation area. The large second head and shower is to port.

Tranquilo features tried and tested options such as electric winches and bow thruster that make her a pleasure to sail. Her very significant list of factory upgrades include the larger Volvo 75 engine, folding propeller, additional double berth when the saloon table is lowered, a long list of navigation gear including AIS, Sat phone, autopilot and chart plotters at each helm. A long list of equipment and spares have been added post commissioning.

Tranquilo is available now on Pittwater, for further details contact Peter Mactier at YOTI.
