Canadian Yachting October 2020 - 30

The swim ladder easily lowers without a large bang.

With flush hatches and no lines,
the deck is clean, sleek and free of
hazards. The Seldon rig and high sailarea to displacement ratio provides an
optimum ride in light winds, yet didn't
over-power us in the 20 knot gusts. The
owners opted for a fully battened 52.5
sq m main which effortlessly goes up
with the power winch and comes down
like a shot into the boom bag when put
into the wind with the auto-pilot. Mast
steps make it easy to attach the main
halyard, even when you are vertically
challenged. Options are available for
a gennaker or asymmetrical spinnaker.
With help from the deep spade rudder,
L-shaped keel and balanced rig, the boat
tacks on a dime and easily slides into the
grove on a new tack. Hanse's decision
for a single rudder and no chine was
definitely a good choice for great performance. The owner's choice of a 1.74m
cast iron shoal draft works well for the
Great Lakes, but a 2.1m keel is also
available. Dean (a former sailing school
instructor, race crew and Laser owner)
was not totally sold on the self-tacking
jib. However, he soon fell in love with
how easy it was to tack and jibe the
boat by himself. As a non-sailor, Cherry
loves the fact that she doesn't have to
lift a finger.... only to push a button!

Two good sized double after cabins with wonderful light in both.

Below deck much can be done
with the 4.17m beam which is carried
nearly all the way to the stern. It is an
impressive design statement with clean
cabinetry, space, luxury, earth tones and
wonderful natural light, all combining
for a modern look. The owners opted
for 3 cabins (two doubles and a queen)
and one head, as they only plan on short
distances until they are more comfortable with the boat. The two-cabin layout provides substantial storage under

the cockpit and entry from either the
cockpit or galley. There are also options
to add another head, take away a cabin
or add a slide-out double berth in the
saloon. Adding the second head pushes
the sleeping space forward to become
more of a V-berth, rather than the rectangular island berth. The Owner's cabin
is definitely a huge drawing card on this
boat and the second head provides an en
suite. By North American standards the
cushions are a bit hard, but a cushioned
