The Hanse Group has just had their second best year ever since 2007 and have just invested 12 million Euros in new technology.
For example the tool you see pictured here is a custom made robot that makes plugs. This kind of investment delivers a 60-70% reduction in costs and allows more boats to be produced with higher than ever quality.
The rise of the Hanse, Dehler and Moody brands has been phenomenal over the past decade.
The main reasons for this growth are:
– superb yacht design
– high quality production and
– constant innovation
Hanse Group make great looking sailors boats that are perfect for the Australasian market. It’s a winning formula that looks set to continue.
The combination of Australia and New Zealand’s number one yacht dealer working with one of the world’s largest yacht manufacturers is a very powerful one.
The Hanse Group are an efficient and organised machine and provide excellent dealer support. For example there is a clear and consistent warranty system and good quality marketing material is available to download from a dedicated dealers area.
Windcraft signed the dealership agreement in October 1999 and have held it ever since. Windcraft are are the only dealership in the world that has every brand across the whole spectrum and the only mainstream dealer to have exclusivity across Australia and New Zealand.
Team Windraft set the benchmark for all yacht dealers worldwide particularly in the areas of service and marketing.
In the current owners’ words “Hanse are black and white and easy to deal with. They take feedback and make changes for their top dealers. So for example we wanted more light and bigger hatches and larger cockpits for our market… and they delivered that.”
“Because the yachts also go to the Mediterranean and the USA they are made perfectly for our market. And they perform well – which is what Aussie and Kiwi sailors want.
“I also massively respect the fact that they’ve got an awesome long term relationship with designers Judel/Vrolijk who as far as I am concerned have never designed a bad boat… If I was offered the choice of any yacht contract worldwide I’d take Hanse every time”
