Boat Details

The Hanse 455 often fits the bill perfectly, whether you are looking for a comfortable coastal cruiser, or to head further afield.  Spacious, easy to handle, great mile eating passage speeds and German quality to boot.

Some of the highlights of the 455 include a structural water tight forward bulkhead, huge owner's suite and fantastic ventilation.  Infinity of Yar was built for the current owner's with an Atlantic crossing in mind and as such benefits from a watermaker, excellent power generation and lots more.
