Hanse 410: A mid-size cruiser that competes in this market

Hanse 410, another mid-sized cruising yacht to hit the market.

In the past, a 32ft boat was considered a large boat. Now 40-42ft boats are the norm. The Hanse 410 will join this group of 40 footers on the market in 2018.

Smaller boats are becoming increasingly difficult to produce with a profit due to the economics.

The Hanse 410 is then going to be up against Dufour 41, Jeanneau Oceanis 40.1, Beneteau Oceanis 410 and the Bavaria C42.

The 20 hatches, windows and vents provide a lot of light.

Hanse, a German manufacturer, has decided to place their latest model in the middle a range that stretches from the 315 all the way up to the new 588.

The Hanse 410, like others of this generation (denoted by the final numeral ‘0’ rather than a 5 or an 8), is designed by Berret-Racoupeau, with a focus on squeezing in as much volume as possible thanks to the very full sections forward as well as aft.

The accommodation will have the same generous headroom as before, with hull chines both forward and aft. In keeping with current trends, the corners are pushed out to allow for the double berths that extend to the ends of hull while still remaining nearly rectangular.

First look: Dufour 41 – better performance and simpler maintenance

The new Dufour 41 follows hot on the heels of the Dufour 37 in terms of design, focusing on more…

Does the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 410 have a more serious side? Graham Snook found out

The theory behind this is that by keeping the waterline narrow, the hull will be more stable when it is tipped.

Often, the extra volume results in less slamming in waves than you’d have thought, and the extra power compensates for the loss of a fine entry, albeit with a small sacrifice in pointing ability.

Looking at the polars, the self-tacking jib will have you up to 6.5 knots at 35º to the apparent wind with 10 knots over the deck. With a furling offwind sail, you’ll be nudging over 9 knots in 20 knots of true wind on a beam reach – that’s with the standard keel and before you’ve weighed the boat down with cruising clobber.

The rudder is more submerged in the water when heeled thanks to fuller sections at the bow.

Even though the Hanse boats of the past were narrower, the brand prides itself in offering a sailing experience that is enjoyable and rewarding, even when all the controls are ducted to the cockpit coamings.

With the twin cockpit table and L-shaped seats, there is plenty of space on the deck. The tables can be lowered in order to create two large sunpads for the cockpit. A large bathing platform is also available at the stern. Elvstrom sails are made of recycled materials and electric propulsion is also available.

A raft of 18 accommodation layout options includes: a heads in the forward owner’s cabin (or a dressing table and large wardrobe); either one or two aft double cabins, the latter of which turns the port quarter into a large stowage locker accessed from a door aft of the galley as well as from on deck; a starboard saloon settee that can be shortened to accommodate either an aft-facing chart table or an outboard-facing stowage locker beneath a standing chart table.

There’s easy access to the water via a stepped bathing platform

Only the L-shaped Galley and C shaped Saloon Seating to Port, the Starboard Heads and Shower compartment and the Starboard Aft Double Cabin are fixed. It seems odd that the starboard saloon settee doesn’t offer seating at the table, limiting hosting to a cosy six, where a fold-out table would give room for eight; a minor detail. Prospective buyers are spoilt for choices.
