Hanse Emotion Rudder Drive

THE REVOLUTION IN YACHTING


Introducing the Hanse E-MOTION RUDDER DRIVE – a groundbreaking propulsion type – Hanse once again sets new standards.

An electric engine and a folding propeller have been installed into the rudder shaft, replacing the combination of diesel engine and sail drive. As a result, the propeller thrust is perfectly in line with the rudder position. This enables turning in the smallest circles or rotating around your own keel – a perfect solution for manuvering in narrow ports.

Docking and undocking the yacht will be much more secure, especially when there is lots of wind. From a standstill position, the yacht immediately starts to turn without having to pick up speed first. In addition, you enjoy all benefits of an electric engine.
In summary, the Hanse E-MOTION RUDDER DRIVE offers a maneuvrability you could not imagine untill today!
