Sound Sailing Named U.S. Agent for VAr Yachts

VAr 37Hanse USA has appointed Sound Sailing Center (SSC) in Norwalk, CT as the US Agent for VAr Yachts, the latest line of sailboats from Hanse Group, builders of Hanse Yachts, Moody and Dehler. “Sound Sailing Center has a great reputation for customer service, having sold and delivered 16 new Hanse Yachts since 2006,” said Doug Brophy, President of Hanse USA. “As one of the largest sailing schools in New England, they are perfect to spearhead the introduction of the new VAr line into the U.S. Market.”

“The VAr 37 and 44 are based on the previous generation Hanse 375 and 430, some of the most successful Hanse models on the racecourse,” said SSC President Martin van Breems. “These proven Judel/Vrolijk-designed, solid laminate hulls have completely new, simpler and much lighter cabin houses and interiors. More than 150 sailors viewed the VAr at the Newport International Boat Show. Although many were initially interested in the low price of $152,400 for the 37 and $198,600 for the 44, most were even more impressed by the construction and performance potential.”

“Many sailors applaud the simple, no-frills formica over marine plywood interior,” said van Breems. “Experienced sailors love the quality gear like the Selden mast and Jefa steering system. But the most important feature, to me and many others, is the amazingly solid Hanse Group construction, with seven transverse bulkheads laminated to the hull in the traditional manner.”                                             

SSC also offers a membership program. “For a low yearly fee, up to eight members can use the selected vessel and any smaller boats in our 14-sailboat fleet,” van Breems explained. “Our program offers 15-20 days of usage per year, and our VAr 37 will be available in South Carolina and Florida this winter.” For more information, visit soundsailingcenter.com and VArYachts.com.
