New boat: Hanse 375

2009 December 1
Hanse's flagship 630 made a big splash at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, this year where show-goers admired its sleek good looks and clean deck layout. But for many sailors, a 63-foot boat is not a practical option.

Thankfully, Hanse is rolling out the 375, a 37-foot performance cruiser with all the good looks of the 630, in a convenient family-sized package.

The Judel/Vrolijk design team stuck with the low coachroof lines, square, open transom and nearly plumb bow that makes for an attractive and fast boat. The boat is based on the 370-the most successful Hanse built-and suggestions from owners of that model were taken into account when designing the 375.

That includes a cockpit with more seating area for the crew and optional twin steering wheels that open up the cockpit and give the helmsman the best possible view of the jib. The boat also has a self-tacking jib and a full-batten mainsail over easy shorthanded sailhandling, but at the same time the boat should be primed for a Wednesday night jaunt around the buoys.

Owners will be able to choose from a number of options down below, including a two- or three-cabin layout and interior wood options of classic mahogany or a lighter wood in a satin finish. Side opening windows and numerous flush hatches should make for a bright and airy interior.

The underbody features a bulb keel made either of all iron or an iron and lead combination with a shoal-draft option.

The 375 is primed to become one of Hanse's most popular models in a midrange size that should suit the needs of many owners.
