Notice also how clear the decks are – they are incredibly safe for your crew.

This top class steering system, long rudder and deep T-bulb keel combine to bring you a yacht which handles like a dream in forward and reverse.
The newly designed cockpit table has a storage box, optional fridge and grill and a rotating plotter pod.
A large swim platform gives you that ‘big-boat feel’ at anchor or in the marina.
As with all Hanse Yachts, the choice of exterior is yours…

Yacht owners asked for more light and space… and Hanse have delivered.
The Hanse 385 interior is incredibly spacious for a yacht of this size.
The interior design is based on the hugely successful contemporary loft style of the Hanse 445 and Hanse 495.
In the daytime light floods through the generous hatches and windows. And at night the SLS, touch-panel light control system allows you to choose the ambience that works for you.
This is a programmable system. So you can pre-set a mode for cooking, eating and relaxing after dinner and the lights will brighten or dim at the push of a button.
The numerous opening hatches offer great ventilation, or if you prefer you can choose air-conditioning as an option.
You’ll find two full-size flush hatches above the owner’s cabin. There are also flush hatches above the head and galley and extra large cockpit port lights.
The master cabin offers a huge 205 x 234 (110)cm berth with 195cm headroom and heaps of hanging space in the two wardrobes.
You can choose from 2 galley options. The standard 2 cabin version has a large U shaped galley with extra work surfaces and cupboard space. In the saloon the large foldable and folding navigation seat allow you to open up the space underway.
In the standard 2 cabin layout you’ll notice the large U-shaped galley with extra worktops and storage space. The nav table seat folds up leaving the living space clear for entertaining at anchor. Alternatively you can choose the 3 cabin layout with L-Shaped galley.
In less than a year the Hanse 385 has become the German company’s best selling yacht.
The 59th boat off the production line has just arrived in New Zealand so Lawrence Schäffler took her for a sail to find out what’s so appealing.
“The 385 is the smallest in the revamped range of 5 Series Hanses and follows hot on the heels of her three bigger sisters, the immensely successful 445, 495 and 545. Like them, she’s been penned by the formidable Judel-Vrolijk team and the same genes are present: plumb bow, clear decks, flush-mounted hatches,a powerful rig, twin helms and a spacious, airy interior.
Like them, she’s also a dream to sail.
Hanse’s yachtshave always enjoyed a reputation for hassle-free handling and easy, short-handed sailing but the 385 lifts the bar by quite a margin.
Liquidity is the first 385 in New Zealand and belongs to Auckland’s Wally Fitness who bought the boat “off the brochure”, sight unseen, but his preliminary research included tours around (and sails on) a number of otherHanses, and he says he was sold on the marque’s qualityand easy-handling traits“… read the full review here and also check out this owner video review of the Hanse 385
