Discover the perfect blend of coastal cruising and exhilarating racing with “Callisto”, a beautifully presented and lovingly maintained German Cruiser Racer. The Hanse 342 boasts a sleek and modern design that turns heads in any marina. With its clean lines and contemporary aesthetics, you’ll be cruising in style.
Hanse’s renowned self tacking headsail makes short-handed or inexperienced crewing a breeze, the practical cockpit layout with all lines & halyards running aft to cockpit winches allows for ease of operation. For those with a bias towards racing, the additional tracking rails to run jibs/genoas.
Callisto’s sail inventory is extensive, and caters for either fast coastal cruising or competitive club-racing. The original fully battened Mainsail & self-tacking Headsail were complemented with an additional suite of new performance sails in 2015, including a North PX fully battened Mainsail, North PX overlapping Genoa (furling) , North PX battened No.3 Jib (self-tacker), North Asymmetrical Spinnaker, & heavy-weather Stormsail. The original Hanse boom-bag was replaced in 2015, while the cockpit dodger was replaced in 2017, along with the helm covers and new Bimini in 2023.
The internal fit out is in immaculate condition with stunning mahogany joinery and unmarked upholstery. Main saloon features U shaped settee to starboard and an offset dining table with chart table / navigation station to port.
