A unique opportunity exists to acquire this near new very highly optioned cruiser racer at a substantial discount on the replacement cost, and without the wait associated with new orders.

"Ataraxia", has been a passionate project to create a capable world cruising boat with every creature comfort.

The Hanse 458 is a right-size boat for coastal or longer distance cruising without being too large for the smaller marinas up the coast. The 458 was designed by the famous offshore racer design team of Judel/Vrolijk and that's evident in the sophisticated deep keel and large elliptical rudder which ensure good control at all times.

The Hanse 458 is a great example how modern cruising yachts are offering so much more space below and on deck. They not only match modern motor cruisers for style but have overcome the old bugbear of dark, cave-like interiors with extensive opening hatches bring in light and fresh air.

Step aboard this German built beauty and you'll find how nice and easy these yachts are to sail with mod-cons such as electric winches for furler and sail controls. Bow thruster, watermaker and an extensive sail inventory are just highlights of this fully optioned vessel.

This is a big volume 46-footer yet one you can sail yourself, due to Hanse's focus on leading all major controls back to the helm position. Combine this with the autopilot and you have the perfect boat for long distance shorthanded sailing, or for just running around the anchorages with friends.

But if you want a turn of speed the Hanse 458's comprehensive, but easily driven sailplan including Quantum sails and Hood Code Zero and Gennaker, will keep you near the front of the fleet with exciting performance for club racing, or when you want fast passage making. The brilliant self-tacking headsail system is controlled by a single sheet makes a huge difference because there's no pulling on ropes and grinding winches on every tack.

At anchor a combination of extensive solar, lithium batteries and the watermaker will make sure you have your independence when cruising. A dinghy to go exploring with davits, and integrated BBQ complete the package to ensure you have the best for your cruising adventures

This Hanse 458 also has an extensive B&G navigation package featuring a VHF radio; 2 x Zeus 3 9.0-inch chartplotters, autopilot and multifunction displays.

The Hanse 458's wide stern beam ensures there's plenty of cockpit space for sailing or entertaining. There are tailor-made cushions to add comfort when you not sailing.

The foredeck includes a huge locker that's perfect for stowage.

Layout and accommodation

The interior of the 458 is light and bright with the large hull windows providing water views from inside the saloon. Stepping aboard you will be immediately blown away by the sheer cabin space and the user-friendly decks.

Off the wide open cockpit, the stern swim platform has a fold-out ladder, and there's a cockpit shower to wash the salt off after a swim. Canvas sun bimini and a dodger over the companionway offer protection from the Australian sun.

The well equipped galley offers a two-burner stove and fridge, and big U-shaped lounge/dinette area where up to eight people can sit comfortably.
There's a separate lounge to port plus a dedicated navigation station that can double as great onboard office.

Aft, there are two good-sized guest double berth cabins, and a large guest bathroom to port with separate wash basin shower and toilet.

A massive master cabin fills the space forward of the main bulkhead. It has plenty of floor space and a generous-size island berth flanked by outboard shelving.

The master cabin's ensuite is split into two compartments with a roomy shower stall to one side, and a toilet/wash basin the other.
