Ostara is a great example of the popular Hanse 370 which offers an excellent combination of comfortable accommodation, sparkling performance and easy shorthanded sailing. She is the highly sought after Owners version combining two double cabins with a large galley and excellent storage. Her impressive inventory includes diesel heating, electric windlass, comprehensive sail wardrobe, electric winch for sail handling, feathering propeller, recently upgraded B&G navigation equipment, bow thruster, holding tank and more. Still in her original ownership from new, yachts of this specification are rarely available and so early viewing is highly recommended.
