The Hansa 2.3 Wide seater is 2.3 metres long. It is easy to rig and easy to sail. The 2.3 Wide can be sailed solo or as a two-seater. It is suitable for two small adults or two children.
The 2.3 wide can be sailed sedately by two average sized adults or as a sporty little racer by a single sailor. As with the 2.3 Single, the sailor’s weight low in the boat enhances stability. With the Hansa 2.3 Wide’s narrower side decks, the solo sailor needs to move their upper body weight to windward in order to keep the boat dry in breezy conditions.
With the simplicity of rig and steering, the security of the ballasted centreboard and roller reefing, the Hansa 2.3 Wide is an ideal entry level craft for clubs and schools. It is ideal as a family fun boat as it can be comfortably handled by two small children, an adult or child, or their grandparents.
