She makes for a smart yet movable second home

‘Fast cruising, easy sailing’ is Hanse’s motto for their new 575, a judel/vrolijk design aimed at getting places quickly and easily. The German company’s new big boat is a big boat indeed, with plentiful freeboard height buying a voluminous and light interior, whilst keeping a clean looking deck and sleek coachroof that’s so low it barely rises from the teak...

Part Sailboat, Part Yacht

This cruiser from Griefswald, Germany is not quite the flagship in Hanse’s line, but it has the look, feel and demeanor of a flagship, with yacht-like features and luxury accommodations. Like all of the Hanses, the 575 comes standard with a self-tacking jib and an optional roller-furling main on a keel-stepped double-spreader rig that one or two people can manage easily in most conditions...

No more difficult to sail and handle than a boat half its size

Reviewed Sep 2016
The Hanse 575 isn’t the company’s largest craft, slotting in the range below the 630e and the 78, but it fits most of the 630e’s features into a slightly smaller package and has almost the same cockpit.

The rig is classic Hanse: self-tacking 9/10 furling headsail, stubby sprit for a gennaker or asymmetric tack and a tapered, twin-spreader stick that can carry a battened, roachy main or an in-mast furling type. The test boat had the latter mainsail arrangement...

Very large, ultra-modern, ‘value-for-money’ production cruiser

Anthony Twibill
Reviewed Sep 2016
Putting hands to the helm, we set sail on Sydney Harbour on a picture perfect winter’s afternoon. Starting the Volvo 110hp diesel auxiliary (powering a three-blade folding prop) you barely hear a murmur, so well insulated is the motor (and genset) beneath the saloon stairs. But give the Sidepower retractable bow and stern thrusters a nudge and you’ll certainly hear them whine as they churn the water alongside pushing the large hull in your desired direction with ease; a vital asset to have included aboard the 575 when sailing as a cruising couple or short-handed...

Expert design and construction - A modern thoroughbred

Hanse thinks big. The German company, one of the world’s premier production builders, currently produces five models larger than 40 feet, and its new flagship, the 675, is nearly 70 feet. A recent test of the 575 found a collage of modern design, fresh thinking and exhilarating performance.

Designed by the prolific firm of Judel/Vrolijk & Co., the Hanse 575 makes a vivid first impression. It’s huge. And I am not just talking about LOA. It’s big in every way, and like all modern designs the ends are plumb to maximize waterline...
