Hanse 315Hanse Yachts focused precisely on style, class and a certain degree of sex appeal during the development of the Hanse 315. With high-quality equipment, a performance people have come to expect from a Hanse and with a confident style that leaves no questions unanswered. 

Distinctive features such as the steep stem, the short overhangs and the deep keel give the new Hanse 315 elegant lines and significantly more activity under sail. The positive sheer gives an elegant and sporty impression, the flat structure underlines the dynamic line. Outstanding sailing properties thanks to a well-balanced sail area create a sense of security.

The new Hanse 315 is supplied with tiller control as standard and can also be equipped with twin steering wheels as an option. The deep L-keel with 1.85 m enables extremely reliable control. This is why the Hanse 315 is the first in its class to receive CE category A. A shallow keel with a draught of 1.37 m is optionally available.

On deck, the well thought-out deck layout with intelligent use of space is visible: The voluminous anchor locker with optional anchor winch is located in the bow with sufficient storage space for the anchor and mooring ropes. Directly behind it, there is the characteristic Hanse self-tacking jib rail as standard for “easy sail” operation.

A traveller is available in the cockpit, which improves the trim of the mainsail significantly. The stern is open, but the cockpit is still very protected. The stern can be closed off completely with a bathing platform or, when open, offers more space for the children to play. If the steering wheels are chosen, the large folding cockpit table transforms the cockpit into a 5-star restaurant.

Inside, the Hanse 315 is light and airy. Scratch-resistant glass panes in the structure and ample portholes let in lots of light and air. There is a large amount of storage space in the saloon, the pantry and the cabins, as well as in the large storage locker.

The Hanse 315 offers enough space for a crew of 4 people. There is an impressive standing height of 1.91 m in the companionway, with 1.77 m in the bow. The standing height in the functional areas  like the pantry, companionway and head is achieved via a lowered floor, which means that the exterior structure remains flat and elegant.

Two layout versions are available in the bow. Either with an open bulkhead and large double berth, or with a closed bulkhead, small seat and a variable double berth. Astern, there is a double guest berth under the cockpit, which provides a comfortable king size berth. All berths have a length of over 2.0 m and are perfect for spending cozy nights on board.

Yet another benefit if this breathtaking yacht is the price: with a basic price ex shipyard of 59,900,-- Euro (ex VAT), the Hanse 315 is unbeatably attractive.

Cowichan Bay to Genoa Bay – Almost the Gulf Islands

Cowichan Bay to Genoa Bay – Almost the Gulf Islands

 By Catherine Dook

“So you’re going offshore to Genoa Bay,” said an old salt at coffee that morning. Genoa Bay was 15 minutes away from our homeport of Cowichan Bay and hardly counted as offshore, but it was our first destination that fall. The fog had socked us in all that morning, so John and I drank coffee and gossiped with the neighbours while waiting for the weather to lift. We’d provisioned with cans of chilli, a sack of apples, and tanks full of water. We’d tested the engine and the anchor winch. We were ready.

Do you know how many boaters you run into while standing in the lift lines of Blue Mountain and the surrounding private ski clubs? Quite a few! Start some conversations on the ski lifts and you might be surprised how many avid boaters you can meet.

Many who boat say that winter sports are just there to pass the time until the ice clears and you can get your boat launched and start boating again. As a ski instructor, you tend to meet even more interesting boaters… Read more about the Reef Boat Club ....

Since the initial article of this series we have looked at the iPad and its use as a marine navigation instrument. We have discussed its functionality, available apps, relevant hardware and compared it to traditional charplotters. This focus on iPad led one of our readers to an interesting question that we have yet to address.

Question: Why has the focus been solely on the use of iPads for marine navigation rather than Android devices?
