About this Hanse Yachts 588


This is probably the most highly optioned and customized Hanse 588 ever built. Originally built for a Norwegian owner, she was design to be a self-sufficient deep water passagemaker, with a custom electrical system that can provide all the comforts of home anywhere in the world.

She took the original owners on a transatlantic and Caribbean adventure, after which she was imported to the US, and is now under US ownership and documentation. This is the deep keel (9.5’) version for fast passages with great stability at sea.

Current located in Portsmouth, Virginia, and ready to jump off to the Caribbean.
