Innovative New Hull Design

The Hanse 588 boasts a brand new hull design with six large windows conveniently positioned at eye level so you can enjoy beautiful views and exceptional light from the comfort of the saloon.

Down below there’s the addition of a brilliant innovative new feature… the unique ‘silent-master-cabin’.

By moving all the devices and pumps and by using special insulation, the master cabin is insulated and shielded against yacht noises so you can relax and drift off to sleep. As with all Hanse Yachts, the choice of exterior is yours… Design your Hanse from bimini to bottom with a large range of material colours.

Fast Cruising & Easy Sailing

The striking new Hanse 588 has a sleek and elegant profile with an enhanced flat, low deck and bigger, beautifully styled coachroof windows.

A powerful sail plan combines a tall mast with a large sail area which gives this yacht a performance sailing edge.

Combine that with Hanse’s original self-tacking headsail and it’s also relaxed, easy sailing for a small crew.

There are options for a hydraulically driven furling reacher on the second forestay for improved upwind performance on long distances and the addition of a gennaker for maximum downwind performance.

Relax On Deck

You can enjoy total relaxation on deck with the addition of a large forward sun-baking area.  Or take a dip.

The transom stairs are accessible by folding the helm seat and deck hatch, this keeps the deck smooth and allows easy access to the bathing platform. If you fancy exploring secluded beaches and bays, the bathing platform opens to reveal a huge tender garage. It’s easy launch winch system means you can be off and away in no time.

The all round bulwark is safe and stylish. And there’s the option of a electronically retractable cockpit table which converts into two sunbeds or choose to have the cockpit table integrated with wetbar, sink and BBQ. Perfect for sundowners Downunder!

Our keel assembly exceeds CE requirements. Hanse use sandwich construction for the hull and deck with robust GRP inner grid.

The mast is keel stepped with chain plates integrated into the toe rail. The 588 is a categorised by GL as A – Ocean Going.
