Best-selling model and boat of the year

Innovative, distinctive and powerful – this stunning yacht is currently turning heads all round the world. In fact, not only is the Hanse 455 is the best-selling Hanse model worldwide …

it’s also been named boat of the year in a number of countries.

Smart Boating owners love this yacht so much we’ve just taken delivery of our third Hanse 455, and it’s available to sail right now.


Two stunning locations

Two stunning locations

Your Hanse 455 will be available to sail in two of the most desired sailing locations that Australia offers.

Spend summers in amazing Pittwater and winters in the Whitsundays 

… and we even sail the boat up and back again for you!


From November to June, she’ll be based at beautiful Pittwater, and then your Hanse 455 will seamlessly move to the excellent marina facilities at Hamilton Island, where she will be based from July to October, in the heart of the spectacular Whitsunday Islands. 

Simply fly direct to Hamilton Island and within minutes you can be on board your own luxury yacht, which will be cleaned, fuelled and ready to board.

No need for a boat briefing as you would with chartering – simply stow your gear and provisions and sail away.

Best in Class

The Hanse 455 is a stunning yacht with the best equipped and largest cockpit in its class and a performance rig that is 10% bigger than the previous model.

As always with Hanse yachts the 455 has the self-tacking headsail making sailing short-handed a breeze.

Even if all your crew are inexperienced you will be fine … all halyards and sheets lead aft to the steering position.

With its long waterline and a smooth hull shape the 455 gives you the proven Hanse sailing performance.

You’ll find the cockpit spacious and comfortable with great visibility.

The large hinged swimming platform adds to the big boat feel at anchor, makes for easy tender boarding and encloses the cockpit safely when you’re sailing.

The new interior is a fabulous modern loft style with slightly curved woodwork.

Vertical hull windows let in heaps of light … and give you panoramic views from the saloon.

Lots of opening hatches provide great ventilation too.

The master suite is a particularly special feature with island bed and separate electric head and shower.

This really is a stunning looking, luxurious, comprehensively appointed and exciting yacht to sail.
