Naval architects continue to do amazing things with smaller boats, making them almost defy their lengths. The new Hanse 325 is one of these designs.
At just 32 feet long, the 325 sounds like a small boat, but the Judel/Vrolijk & Co. team has managed to give it everything an owner would want and could expect in a much larger performance cruiser.
A comfortable cockpit with a flip-up helmsman seat to access the swim ladder is the first sign that this is not your grandpa's 32-footer. Outfitted with a steering wheel, self-tacking jib and single-line reefing, it's also easy to sail.
The 325 is based on the successful Hanse 320 and has the same rig, sailplan, keel and rudder as its predecessor. Where it differs is in its finish and small details such as lower cockpit coamings, smoother corners and a more rounded look.
Down below the boat offers bunks for six people: A V-berth, two settees in the saloon and a spacious aft cabin for two. It also has a galley that is surprisingly big for a boat this size with a stove and oven, sink, refrigerator and even comfortable counter space for working. The head is aft, to port of the companionway.
The 325 has the same rig, sail plan, keel and rudder as its predecessor, the 320.
Hanse wants boats to reflect their owners' tastes, so the boat is highly customizable. Twenty-nine upholstery options in different materials and colors are available to compliment the modern-looking furniture and joinery. Teak decks, a sprayhood, a heater, a chartplotter and more luxuries are also available, to make this capable cruiser a boat truly unique to its owners.
