Broker's Comments

The Hanse 540e is well know throughout the Bluewater cruising community for its ability to cross oceans in good time and in comfort.

The exterior deck layout makes it ideal for short handed cruising while the interior gives you the space for long term living aboard.

This example has been well cared by its present owner and comes with many extras in place for Bluewater cruising.

These boat details are subject to contract.
