About this Hanse 342


Gedi is a rare three-cabin version of the award-winning Hanse 342, ideal for family cruising or sail training, with the sought after optional lighter interior finish. Set up to offer good performance whilst being easily handled with a self-tacking jib, her inventory includes an electric anchor windlass, upgraded navigation equipment including autopilot and GPS chart plotter at helm, and diesel-fired heating. Her condition below decks is particularly good, and her distinctive red topsides set her out from the crowd! Early viewing is highly recommended as modern cruising yachts in this category are in high demand.
