HanseYacht was founded in 1990 in the former shipyard in Greifswald. Using the construction technique of that village, it started building sailing yachts under the Hanse brand name. In 1993, the company created the first series-produced boat, the Hanse 291. The boat was presented at the international boat show in Hamburg and became a success. This model revolutionised the yacht market in Europe, North America and Australia. In 1999, the company introduced a new model, the Hanse 371, with a modern and sophisticated design. Later that year, the Hanse 371 was crowned "European Yacht of the Year".
During the 2000s, Hanse began to expand into international markets. In 2005, the company founded HanseYachts US LLC, the first branch in America. Later that year, the Fjord was acquired, and the Hanse portfolio grew.
The company's growth continued, and in 2007 Hanse became the first German yacht builder to be listed on the stock exchange. Allowing him the company to expand further, and in 2008 they opened a new phase at the Greifswald shipyard, giving them the capacity to produce more.
In 2011, Aurelius AG bought 77% of Hanse's shares, which led to the introduction of new shares to provide a profitable future for the company. In 2019, Hanse acquired the French catamaran builder Privilege. This acquisition allowed Hanse to enter the sailing and power catamaran market. Hanse's growth has been steady throughout its years in the market. So good are the results that in 2021 it created the Rick Yachts brand, a brand of motor and sailing boats.
Hanse is the second largest supplier of sailboats, motorboats and luxury catamarans. Every ship is built with quality and safety at the forefront. Hanse tests all its ships in the Baltic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The ships undergo extensive testing in real-life conditions before they are launched on the market.
