The HANSE 388 is a sleek and trendy yacht with a cruiser-friendly cockpit and plenty of space to enjoy the sailing, the sun, and the views. The unique lighting concept with large roof windows and multiple port lights ensures life with maximum sunlight. She has all the speed and efficiency needed for a fast, short-handed boat that will welcome family and friends. 


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 388 one of the top performers 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 yacht has a fiberglass/GRP hull, CE certification class (A) and can go in open ocean.

EASY SAILING. The HANSE 388 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.

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.
