Lots of people on board the new little Hanseatic League
In fact: So small and already a yacht. The feeling of space makes the visitor think of a larger ship, light and a few tricks in the interior make it possible. The foredeck is slightly open on the exhibition boat. That creates space for the eye. Skylights on the deck provide light inside. That also helps for the feeling of space.
Aft is slept across, the height above the feet of the otherwise lush bunk is also tight. Future owners have to try this out carefully. If you don't mind, you will enjoy the proper ventilation and the closet space. In the foredeck there is a version with an additional cupboard and full main bulkhead. Then the chamber can be closed at the front and has a seat next to the individual bunk. Ideal as a children's room, because then the lack of length is less of a problem.

The dimensions of the wet room are phenomenal: it is actually designed in such a way that a harbor shower does not have to be used. We recommend the cruising package, which includes a boiler, among other things. Otherwise, the clean workmanship and the sometimes somewhat sharp corners are noticeable below deck. The large selection of fabrics and types of wood is typical of the Hanseatic League. A light acacia floor with a mahogany finish is standard.
The outside pleases the tiller. It fits the boat. Those who prefer to steer by bike can get two on request. Behind the tiller the traveler runs at a sufficient width. The main sheet is within the control of the helmsman, as is any mainsheet trimmer that can work further back in the cockpit. By arranging the tiller further forward, the helmsman stands reasonably protected under the sprayhood. Foresail maneuvers are almost completely eliminated thanks to the self-tacking jib. If you want to drive lower courses, you can order the 105 percent jib with flying fetch points or a Code Zero. At the latest then, however, two additional winches are required, which are available at an additional cost. If you want, you can also have the mainsheet and headsail sheet lead there.
The new little Hanse is a successful entry-level boat. Safe and easy to handle with tiller and self-tacking jib, below deck enough for two adults and two children and can be upgraded with every comfort if required. The first have already been sold. Prices start at around 70,000 euros. The dealer states that the final sales price of the first ships was just under 100,000 euros. You can see it until Sunday at the Hiswte Water in Amsterdam.
