Hanse 418 Cruising Monohull for $250 per hour in Hollywood, Florida. The Judel/Vrolijk-designed 418 is built at the Hanse yard in Greifswald, Germany, and replaces the 415 in the middle of the brand’s nine-boat range. It shares the same slippery hull as its predecessor, but sports an updated interior and completely new deck layout that includes twin wheels, fold-up helm seats, a stout centerline drop-leaf table in the cockpit and modest bulwarks, upon which the lifeline stanchions sit. As Boat of the Year judge Tim Murphy pointed out in his description of the boat, the Hanse “look” favors relatively high freeboard and a low-profile coach roof. Besides good looks, that design decision translates directly into excellent visibility from either wheel when sitting or standing, and decks that are easy to move about on once one has stepped over the somewhat wide cockpit coamings. Out on the water, Hanse keeps things simple. All sail-control lines are led aft from the mast under removable seahoods to a bank of clutches and a Lewmar winch just forward of each wheel. Line bins adjacent to the wheels keep the cockpit clutter free. Upwind, the self-tending jib makes tacking a turn-the-wheel endeavor; off the breeze, the double-ended mainsheet ensures control of the full-batten main is close at hand to either wheel. The boat we sailed had a second set of winches mounted forward on the cockpit coamings for handling a downwind sail, definitely an option I’d choose to spice things up when reaching or running.
