Launched in mid-2014, French Kiss is the very first Hanse 505 to be offered for sale on the Australian brokerage market.
Representing a near new yacht in stunning condition and intelligently specified, French Kiss is a turnkey opportunity, ready now and lying Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays. This Hanse 505 will appeal to those comparing with new and wanting to capitalise on some initial depreciation.
The 505 below decks offers a luxurious owners cabin forward with island berth and completely separate head and shower compartments. The large saloon simply works with stair like entry from the cockpit, large saloon seating opposite the island bench with retractable TV, the in-line galley sits to port and nav station starboard. A twin cabin and main head with shower stall are accessed via the saloon. Two generous doubles lie aft. Above deck, this 505 is surely the easiest yacht in her class to handle with superior visibility, in-mast furling and self-tacking headsail. With a Hanse 505 winning her division in this year's Hamilton Island Race Week, the performance of this yacht will satisfy the racer in all of us.
French Kiss has been optioned with the following packs and significant upgrades; American Cherry furniture / Classic Stripes flooring / Leather upholstery, B&G navigation pack with colour plotter at each helm and auto-pilot, cruising pack, comfort pack, entertainment pack, TV pack (retractable), black Y spoke twin wheels, electric halyard winches, in-mast furling mainsail, upgraded performance tri-radial cut main and self-tacking headsail, dodger / bimini / infill, coachroof sun cushions, folding propeller, retractable bow thruster, upgraded charger / inverter / batteries, two electric toilets, lifeline gates and galley draw freezer (in addition to two refrigerators). A Highfield RIB and 6Hp outboard nicely completes this sail away package.

Our HANSE 505 is not just setting new trends again. We pushed design, functionality and technical solutions to a new level. We offer the most comfortable cockpit and an easy to access bathing platform. Feel free to enjoy it.
The saloon is more than just a dining space. It is now upgraded to be a place for pleasure and entertainment.
The legendary HANSE “loft style” philosophy has achieved a further step. Take your choice between almost 1200 combinations of cabin layouts, furniture woods, floors and upholstery.
