Product Description

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.

NOTE: The stability of a Hansa sailboat relies on the body weight of a sailor being kept low in the boat, thereby lowering the centre of gravity. The maximum combined weight of two sailors in a 2.3 wide is 120kg. The extra weight is permissible as the centre of gravity of two sailors is presumed to be lower than a single sailor of the same combined weight. It is therefore recommended that sailors weighing over the maximum weight sail the larger 303 or Liberty.
