Lying in Pittwater this prime example of Hanse’s ‘easy sailing’ philosophy represents a serious alternative to a new boat purchase – with considerable savings.
Renegade has benefited from Windcraft’s regular maintenance schedule, since her launch in 2016, resulting in an extremely well-presented exterior and interior.
The 455 combines space, comfort and the ability to be sailed short-handed thanks to Hanse’s self-tacking headsail system.
The expansive cockpit allows for entertaining around a polished teak table that folds down to allow guests to relax on the spacious bench seating or they can take a dip from the generous swim platform.
Down below the large volume Judel/Vrolijk hull enables a generous owner’s stateroom forward that boasts an extra-large double berth, and a separate head and shower – a highly welcome and sought after feature. Two big aft cabins can host guests or extra family members.
Four overhead hatches suffuse the saloon with ambient sun or moonlight, while the fully equipped L-shaped galley is able to cater for any occasion.
Easy operation of all the sheets and halyards that are led aft to the twin helms via the electric Lewmar winches.
The boat’s tapered double-spreader Seldén aluminum rig is slightly fractional & features uncomplicated in-mast push-button furling for the mainsail & a furling headsail, all easily operated from the helm. A cruising gennaker is also included in the inventory.
The Elvstrøm sails are in good condition and only have to be unfurled to fulfil your cruising ambitions – be it weekend getaways or coastal cruising to the Reef and beyond.
