With 16 feet of beam amidships, wide, uncluttered teak decks, a sleek, wedge-shaped cabin top, a transom garage that can hold a RIB and lots of extra gear, an enormous cockpit, and room enough behind twin wheels, Hanse 540e offering from Germany seemed, well, big for its size.
Beamy topsides and bold below, this new sailboat from Germany is intended to be handled by a couple.
Below, the Hanse 540e offers a distinct interior with a strong Euro flair. Bold
fabrics, white bulkheads, dark Corian counters and sink, and mahogany
woodwork play off each other to create a modern, perhaps stark, look. In the
saloon, there is a decided lack of fiddles throughout, a reflection of the
builder's belief that most meals will be cooked in harbor.Hanse 540e comes with 4double cabins with ensuite facilities plus skipper's cabin (single) with toilet.
