2014 Hanse

MERSEA, an immaculate one-owner Hanse 505, is now available, with only a dozen weeks of sailing under her keel since first launch in mid-2014; she was not sailed until late-2015, having been used as a Hanse display at European boat shows for her first year. MERSEA comes with an impressive inventory of gear for both shorthanded cruising and long-distance passagemaking. She was ordered from the factory with every possible option and has been continually upgraded and improved ever since. Captain-maintained from the get-go, she now benefits from professional management and maintenance by her listing broker - she is in immaculate shape and shows like a nearly new yacht.

The Hanse 505 has all the functional design components for fast, stress-free and shorthanded passagemaking: a stable but easily-driven hull with a long waterline, a performance-oriented sail plan, and a comfortable and safe cockpit with all control lines led to electric winches next to the helm. Other upgrades which add to her shorthanded abilities include the self-tacking jib and an aftermarket furling gennaker. This is arguably one of the best performing, shorthanded cruisers in the class, with multiple international award nominations.

Below decks, MERSEA is second to none in her class. The salon and galley are spacious, open, modern and comfortable. She has ample accommodation for eight persons in three double cabins, a Pullman cabin, and convertible salon settee/berth. Aside from coming loaded with every factory option available, MERSEA boasts a long list of custom upgrades and modifications that set her apart from sisterships. She comes with all the necessary equipment to make her a true turn-key cruiser for buyers with exacting standards. A rare offering in the U.S. market, MERSEA is the nicest 505 offered anywhere, and priced appropriately to sell.

MERSEA is currently hauled out in the yard in Portsmouth, RI, next door to our offices, and easy to show for interested buyers or brokers.
