Hanse Cockpit

So I'm reading the latest edition of Sail magazine. Right inside the cover is a picture of a Hanse 470. Nice wide cockpit with twin wheels. Absolutely no stern pulpit or life lines across the back of the boat. One could simply walk off the boat the entire width of the cockpit. Am I missing something simple here? Maybe they took the lifelines down for the photo?

Yes. I know that boat and what you mean, you are almost right

There are life lines, but removable. There is a version that has 2 boxes that close the stern behind the wheels.

These boxes look like barber's chairs, they are sooooo ugly they remove them for the photos...It's really really ugly

Hanse has opted for a clean minimalist look. Those boats are nice boats and clean looks help.

Most are never sailed or used for small coastal hops.

I like the cockpit and the look of the deck, but don't like the cabin that much.

The ultimate walk through transom. They must really be ugly if they have to remove them for an advertising photo.

I was asked 2 years ago to comment on the cockpit by a Hanse dealer. Aside from the open transom, there was another problem. The rudder post extended upward into the cockpit floor for atachment of the emergency tiller but also provided a nice tripping point to lauch you overboard through the open transom!

A clean cockpit encourages a clean crew, right, Alex?
