47' HANSE 470 E (2009) "KAMA HELE"
Trim, taut and terrific is the stark contrast between the old and today's head-turning Hanse yachts. Hanse's 470e is a comfortable and contemporary 47-foot production-built yacht designed for cruising in a set-and-forget manner with a self-tacking 95% headsail and electric winches. The "e" stands for Elite Class, but it could also be epoxy, as in SP Sysems, previously a boatbuilding method confined to cutting-edge race yachts but now available through this German yard.
