Hanse 510 : a sailing boat with more than 100 possible configurations

After the innovative Hanse 460, awarded Sailboat of the Year, Hanse Yacht launches its second design by Berret-Racoupeau. The Hanse 510 offers a hull optimized for performance and interior design. This new model will seduce both private owners and charter agencies

Optimized Performance

The Hanse 510 is the second model in the new range designed by the Berret-Racoupeau design office, after the Hanse 460, launched in 2022. It has a hull with a marked chine on the bow, and an inverted bow to optimize sailing performance. The designers also worked on the hull shape to gain interior space. Thus, the beam is 4.91 m.

Bathing platform and large annex garage

The cockpit is equipped with a double wheelhouse at the stern, with removable seats at the transom. All maneuvers are performed at the various winches positioned nearby. On the bow, two L-shaped squares with two tables allow for outdoor relaxation. An optional windscreen surrounds the roof and an optional hard-top can be installed for maximum protection. It can also receive solar panels for even more autonomy.

At the stern, the transom unfolds into a bathing platform and reveals a tender garage, described by the shipyard as the largest in the 50-foot class. It can accommodate a 2.7 m semi-rigid tender, and as an option, the new Smart Tender System, a lifting arm that facilitates launching.

Another new feature is the easy-to-open liferaft storage area just in front of the companionway. An optional wetbar with barbecue and sink can be installed on the rear of the cockpit.

A sail plan to enjoy great sailing

The Hanse 510 adopts a generous sail plan, 128 m2 upwind and 255 m2 downwind. As standard, the gennaker is used as a tack for a gennaker or any other downwind sail. The boat has a self-tacking jib, and a second furler for a genoa. As an option, the mainsail and jib winches can be electric.

An interior design that can be customized according to the program

The interior is bright thanks to the 14 opening panels and 8 opening portholes that also ensure good ventilation. Numerous options make it possible to personalize the boat. The shipyard offers more than 100 different layout combinations. In the owner's version, you can opt for a large master cabin with an en suite bathroom and two aft cabins. In the charter version, the Hanse 510 offers up to 10 berths and three bathrooms with an additional skipper cabin.

The kitchen also adapts to the needs of the owners, positioned in a U shape or lengthwise. In addition to various refrigerator and freezer options, there is a wine cellar, dishwasher, three-burner gas stove and oven. The fully equipped chart table has a seat facing the step, while the port side saloon offers a large table with facing benches.
