53' Hanse e 2008



Las Playitas Mexico

Big, bold and brash, the Hanse 540e has a sleek and racey look….yet is perfect for a sailing couple to handle. She boasts a clean, uncluttered teak deck, modern interiors, and a simple rig.

After upgrading her electronics in 2013, she did the mini-transatlantic crossing from the Mediterranean, arriving in the Caribbean in early 2014. Through the Panama Canal in February, 2014 and up to the West Coast of North America by June, 2014. She now spends 6 months cruising and off-season on the hard in Mexico.

Come and see the only Hanse 540e available in North America. Be ready to quickly set sail from the shores of the world’s best cruising grounds, the Sea of Cortez!
