While other builders have stopped producing the entry level sub 10m cruising yachts Hanse have invested in this market heavily with the Hanse 315. This boat building powerhouse is attracting people to the brand, aiming to create a brand loyalty with sailors from their first boat to their last. The Hanse 315 is compact big yacht; packed with many of the features you would find in one of the larger Hanse models. All this is built into a Judel and Vorlijk designed hull providing her with a more performance orientated edge than many would expect from a Hanse.

A tiller steered example of the Hanse 315 ‘STELLA MARIS’ has the sought after five berth layout with a single cabin forward, double aft cabin to port and large port cockpit locker. Lightly used in the current ownerships STELLA MARIS is presented afloat and in commission with a comprehensive inventory which includes:
