Her stunning interior and thoughtful exterior execution have garnered Fortissimo the accolades of many Hanse salesman as one of the best-looking Hanse's built!  

Fortissimo sails beautifully and is easily shorthanded, as all controls lead right to the wheel.  She is capable of performing well on the racecourse should an owner decide to do so.  She has racing sails that have very little use.

Specifications, Descriptions And Details

“Fortissimo” was built for a very experienced yachtsman.  A sound hull, which was fast and easy to sail was his criteria for choosing the HANSE 575.  He spared no expense or effort in producing what has been called by more than one HANSE salesman, “the best-looking Hanse ever”.  Fortissimo has been captain maintained and shows extremely well!

What makes Fortissimo so special is the high gloss varnish of the cherry interior!  The look is stunning!  The fabric and color scheme, which was chosen with the assistance of an interior designer, compliments the glow of the varnish to produce a stunning show house look that is overstated.

The owner enjoys racing and he equipped Fortissimo with easy to adjust push button vang and backstay controls.  He upgraded the standing rigging to Stainless Steel Rod Rigging, which ensures better mast control and better sail shape.  The sail inventory is complete to allow Fortissimo to be raced at top performance.  She only raced three times, so the sails are in fantastic condition.  There are two mainsails, one with a Dutchman System for automatic flaking, both can be used with the Lazy Bag sail cover or used with the separate lazy jack system set up for the North mainsail and its custom mainsail cover.

Owner cabin with island double berth with separate head & shower stall.  Beautiful lit with LED lighting and has plenty of storage space, under the berth, in hanging lockers and shelves.  This mattress is upgraded to a luxury grade.

Salon & galley with U-shaped settee, and seating for many!  This super spacious area is great for entertaining or just relaxing.  The TV is well positioned for viewing from the entire salon, and even if working at the nav station.  The performance instruments can even be shown on the TV.  The salon table is lowerable via an electric motor for conversion to a berth with matching cushion upholstery.

The navigation area also doubles as an office afloat.  There is plenty of room for charts or working on your computer. Ample storage below the desks and even a wine cooler to hold your most precious wines.

There is a “bunk cabin” with two over under bunks.  This is a cozy and comfortable cabin.

The aft head is to starboard, behind the nav station.  This has a separate entrance from the Salon, and also from the starboard cabin.  It features a stall shower.

Two separate guest cabins port and starboard in the aft end of the boat have double berths with dedicated storage space under and above on shelves.  Lit hanging lockers and storage add to the luxury feel of the cabins.  These cabins are extremely large and comfortable!
