Hanse 505


Named boat of the year in a number of countries, the Hanse 505 offers a unique combination of performance, comfort, and luxury. Matilda is fast – surprisingly fast, stable, ultra-responsive, big, and fully equipped. Whether you’re blue ocean sailing, or enjoying a gourmet meal inside or al fresco around the large table in the cockpit, Matilda will delight you.

The salon has the look and feel of a luxury high-rise apartment with a leather throughout and a spaciousness that cannot be found on other yachts of comparable size. Equipped with many extras including a Bluetooth stereo with speakers inside and in the cockpit, three beautifully appointed large staterooms with deluxe mattresses, large closets and storage; and a fourth berth with bunk beds.

The galley is designed for a master chef with drawer style double refrigerator and freezer, Corian counters and every imaginable high quality appliance & accessories.

At sea Matilda will amaze you with her state of the art, high-performance rigging overlapping Jib and full batten Main sail

Designed to be single-handed, sailing is easy with the help of Lewmar 55 winches, overlapping Jib, and all rigging run to the dual helm stations. Tacking is blazing fast and she points super closer to wind. The  dual-wheel steering provides excellent visibility, precision and responsiveness at the flick of your wrist.
