Hanse 54' 540e

Berlin is a world class yacht that has been meticulously maintained. She has a beautiful dark blue hull and is fully loaded with many extras both above and below deck. Below deck is a 32-inch disappearing LCD television in the main saloon (that can be swung towards the nav station and used as a chart plotter display) as well as 21-inch TV mounted in owner's cabin.

All three cabins have upgrades including memory foam-topped mattresses, custom-made linens and mattress covers, and electric Tecma fresh water heads. If you want a boat that can race offshore, cruise very comfortably with 6'6" headroom and amazing space, and be easily singlehanded for fun family daysailing and coastal cruising, Berlin is the boat for you.

The Jefa roller bearing rudder system, all lines led aft to electric winches, and a self-tacking jib help make for an incredibly pleasurable sailing experience.  With a Judel / Vrolijk pedigree, quality construction from the prepreg epoxy hull oven post-cured, full-length stringers, massive fiberglass grid, bulkheads glasses to the hull and deck, and a tapered two spreader rig, Berlin has what it takes to do anything you ask of her.  Modern superyacht style and quality construction typical of high-end builders make her an amazing vessel. Her owner has a new yacht, and Berlin is seriously for sale.
