Hanse 315 logo wave


The HANSE 315 is a perfect compact cruiser that will amaze you with exceptional performance and elegant looks both inside and out. The winner of the European Yacht of the Year 2016 offers the highest standards and a wide range of customizations to make it truly yours.


FAST CRUISING. The high rig and the perfectly optimized sail plan, combined with a balanced rudder and a deep L-shaped keel, make the HANSE 315 the best in its class with excellent speed, stability, and safety. The unique hull construction, designed by the famous judel / vrolijk & co with an almost straight bow and stern, creates a long waterline that makes the most of the hull length. The hull features foam-coated fiberglass above the waterline, solid lamination below and balsa decks.

EASY SAILING. The HANSE 315 comes with the original self-tacking jib in the standard configuration allowing easy maneuvering. The deck and cockpit area are free of all sheets and halyards and perfectly organized, offering more space and comfort. The German mainsheet system allows the helmsman to adjust the mainsail from both sides of the yacht and always have control without changing position.

INNOVATIONS. The Emotion Rudder Drive makes the HANSE 315 the world's first all-electric sailboat. Except for zero emissions, this revolutionary propulsion type allows the boat to turn in the smallest circles and rotate around its keel, offering great maneuverability in tight ports. 

CUSTOMIZATIONS. With thousands of different customization options, you can configure your HANSE to make a statement. Choose your technical equipment and interior layout. Pick materials and colors for floors, furniture, upholstery, sprayhood, bimini tops, sails, steering wheels, and much more. Upgrade your performance, navigation, and entertainment. No other line-production brand offers a broader choice of customizations than HANSE. Make your yacht truly yours.
