This 52 footer is one of four new models this German builder has announced for the 2018 season. The Judel Vrolijk design is optimised for the light airs sailing that’s typically found during the main season in the Mediterranean, northern Europe and Baltic seas. An optional furling-reaching sail on a second forestay improves upwind and reaching performance in light airs, while a gennaker maximizes downwind speed. Three keel options give a draught of 2.2, 2.55 or 2.8m.

The deck layout is designed to make the boat as easy to sail as possible, with all key sail handling operations possible from the two winches at the helm stations and a self-tacking jib. Optional electric furling systems further simplify manoeuvres. The hydraulically operated bathing platform is accessed by easy stairs, while an innovative “swimming stair” and optional hydraulic gangway are designed to facilitate easy access for swimming and when moored stern to a quay in harbour.

An optional solid hardtop provides protection from sun and spray, and incorporates a carbon fibre arch to take a conventional mainsheet traveller. This can be combined with a either a canvas spray hood and retracing side panels or a solid glass windshield.

Below deck accommodation is based around a three-cabin layout, with each fully soundproofed. The owner’s suite is forward, while a second VIP suite aft on the port side offers significantly more space than is usually found in quarter cabins. Even the third cabin has a king size 200x160cm bed.

The company’s other new boats are the Hanse 348, 388 and 418. All are expected to be on show at the Dusseldorf boat show in Germany in late January 2018.
