Hanse 495 features a clear foredeck, open easily accesses coach roof and an extensive protected cockpit area with integrated table. A big simple to operate transom door forms an ideal gangway in harbours as well as being the perfect bathing platform.

The yacht is easy to handle. Naturally all manoeuvres are controlled from the helmsman’s position, assisted by electrical winches. Moreover Hanse 495 can be supplied with an easy docking tool for stress free mooring, which moves the yacht under motor power in every direction.

The Hanse 495 interior is a new interpretation of the loft style concept that Hanse introduced for series production sailing yachts. Highlights are the generous well equipped galley with outside view, an L-shaped settee and the possibility to place the owners cabin with separate heads forward or aft.
