Sailing Today honored Hanse Yachts AG with its Boat Builder of the Year Award.

Hanse Yachts AG received the Boat Builder of the Year Award 2016 from the British magazine Sailing Today.

“Hanse Group has had a very busy year, launching a new flagship in the form of the stunning new Hanse 675, the Hanse 588 and the award-winning Hanse 315,” Sailing Today editor Sam Fortescue said in a statement. “Meanwhile, Hanse’s more performance-oriented Dehler brand saw the launch of a new 42-footer, while its classic 34 has been relaunched and brought bang up to date."

Hanse said the redevelopment of the Dehler 34 was particularly exciting because the first Dehler 34, which was built in the 1980s, laid the cornerstone for the performance cruiser.

Hanse Yachts CEO Jens Gerhardt thanked Sailing Today and the shipyard’s employees.

"We won this award together,” Gerhardt said. “Even with the best designers, one cannot build successful yachts if the production does not work. At the Hanse shipyard everybody works hand in hand in order to build unique yachts for the customers. I therefore thank all the staff of the shipyard for their commitment and wish everybody an enjoyable ending of the sailing season 2016."
