The Hanse 460 makes sailing easy thanks to its hydrodynamic hull design and powerful rig, allowing for smooth, stable, and optimal sailing at all times.

All halyards and sheets run to central winches by the helm, which is optionally equipped with a plotter.

The Hanse 460 mixes first-class functionality with a strapping and stylish design, which can be seen in its elegant exterior, slender yet sporty, with striking chines and an immaculately-designed deck.

And in case you’re still wondering if this is the yacht you should choose, the Hanse 460 won the European Yacht of the Year for 2022!
