Northrop & Johnson sells sailing yacht Hanseat IV with Haas International
by Malcolm MacLean
Built by New Zealand yard Austral Yachts to a design by Dixon Yacht Design, she was launched in 2001 and refitted in 2012. A cutter rigged sloop, her classically-styled cosy interior in American cherry wood and maroon leather sleeps up to seven guests in three cabins. These are arranged as a master suite and two doubles pus a Pullman berth, and all have en suite shower facilities.
A favoured spot is her spacious guest cockpit with alfresco dining for eight under a sun roof which furls out from the boom. The separate steering cockpit has ample space to work without ropes or winches getting in the way.
Hanseat IV was asking €950,000.
