LEVERAGE | Hanse 545 | 53ft


Portsmouth, RI, US


The Hanse 545 is a popular and well-proven performance-cruising sloop, easy to handle with efficient ergonomics and deck hardware layout, yet spacious and comfortable below with the desirable 3-cabin/2-head layout. Each head boasts a stall shower. LEVERAGE has benefited from many recent upgrades and notable maintenance projects (see below) plus a pre-market survey commissioned by the seller to preemptively identify and rectify any outstanding issues before listing the boat. Priced aggressively for a quick sale, winter storage already paid for at Safe Harbor / New England Boatworks in Portsmouth, RI.
