With the upcoming sale of the marina, the builder of motor and sailing yachts is focusing on its core business.

"We are currently in the process of selling the marina. This will strengthen our already intensive partnership with Marina Yachtzentrum GmbH,” Hanse Yachts board member Sven Göbel said in a statement. “Our main concerns during the sale are the interests of the yacht owners and, above all, the quality of the buyer. In Marina Yachtzentrum GmbH we have found an investor who will enable successful ongoing development with new perspectives. This is an all-round good solution for all involved. We will use the capital released through the sale both to reduce our debts and to contribute to the expansion of Hanse Yachts AG and to build on our leading position in the market.”

"The purchase of the marina on the river Ryck makes a good addition to our existing activities in Greifswald and enables us to offer customers an all-round, one-stop service in cooperation with Yachtwerft Greifswald GmbH,” Yachtzentrum managing director Ronny Sielski said in a statement. "Interest among customers for an all-round service is increasing all the time. The marina provides an excellent platform for meeting this demand.”
