New Boat Models

Hanse Introduces New Sportboat Line

The Ryck 280 is a single-outboard day boat targeted at watersports enthusiasts.

German yacht maker Hanse has a new line of day boats called Ryck. They were developed in a partnership with designer Bill Dixon and are designed for watersports with an open cockpit and large swim platform. The first model, the Ryck 280 is scheduled to make her debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

Lots of Choices

The 280 measures 31’2” (9.51 m) long overall with a 9’3” (2.81 m) beam and a draft of 1’9” (.53 m). The builder lists the weight at 4,140 lbs. (1,877.87 kg) with a fuel capacity of 79.25 gallons (300 liters). She also carries 23.24 gallons (88 liters) of fresh water.

The Ryck 280 has the sleek profile and blunt bow that have become the current trend in day boat design.

The Ryck 280 comes standard with L-shaped seating in the cockpit and a pair of bucket seats behind the helm console that’s topped with a wraparound windshield. The boat can be upgraded in stages. First, an owner can add a table in the cockpit and upholstery on the trunk cabin. The next step is to make the backrest for the cockpit bench convertible to create a sunlounge and add a wetbar. The T-top is an option that we think will be a popular addition, especially if an owner adds the shades for the bow and/or stern.

Belowdecks, she comes standard with a wet head and open storage in the bow. The lounge that converts to a V-berth is an option that will enhance the boat’s utility for weekend getaways.

An L-shaped lounge in the cockpit provides seating and still leaves plenty of open space.

Adding the optional V-berth gives the Ryck 280 weekending ability.

Additional standard equipment includes two skylights that open, plus an opening port in the head.

Power is a single Mercury Verado outboard ranging from 250 hp to 350 hp.
