I have ordered my 460 in 08/2022 for delivery in November/December 2023.

In eleven months from 08/2022 until 07/2023, the scheduled delivery date was updated by about 15 weeks to March 2024.
In three months from 07/2023 until 10/2023, the scheduled delivery date was updated by about 3 weeks to April 2024.

For me it looks like the production process is still more or less as slow as it was in the past 14 months.
Does anyone share my opinion, or does anyone made other experience?

This story is exactly looks like mine 460 as well.

  I have ordered in October 2022 and the dealer was sayings that they will  give it on december 2023. It has delays to the February 2024 and now they'll give on April 2024. 
İn facts I am not complaining this delays if there is not more much delays.Because of Marina fees for winter. 

In the other hand if there is delays of Hanse I would like to add some more options.  But our dealer said that not possible. 

They are not started to production yet and I am hoping to have right to change or add some equipments.

 Is anyone has this experience. ?

When we ordered our 575 the dealer/factory said once the order was placed there could be no changes. I gather this is because the equipment is pre-ordered for that specific boat and the fitout is designed around your selection of options -eg if you ordered a washing machine that cupboard was made to fit the washing machine in and the shelving etc that would have been there is not made or fitted. So although your hull may not be available as yet the equipment, like the washing machine are already ordered or maybe there ready to fit. The told us a 575 took 2 months to build once the started. They just need to slot the production in. Ours was ordered for handover in June 2014 and they had the boat completed by Jan 2014. They shrink wrapped it and stored it until we arrived. In May when our dealer arrived and they launched the boat and completed the seatrials. So when we arrived the boat was basically ready apart from a few small issues identified by us and the second visit from our dealer which were being rectified. Unfortunately it seems now there are lots of delays. Hope you get your 460 soon.

Do you have to pay an invoice 12 weeks prior production starts?
Did you get it yet?

No,  we paid deposit on order ...and remainder to be paid upon delivery (we will pick up once completed)    Originally we were estimated pick up date in Feb 2024, but now informed pick up date April 2024.

Has anyone in this thread picked up their new Hanse 460 Recently?   Checking on progress periodocally.  

If you have received delivery, which was your order number?   

Also if anyone knows, how the rate of production is going?   Are they producing 1-2 per week or so?

We took delivery of 460#104 from the factory end of June 2023 and it was shipped in July but assembly and handover did not happen until October 2023.
 It was ordered October 2021 with expected delivery December 2022 so delivery was 10 months later. The final construction is very good and we are very pleased with the Yacht. I am sure you will also enjoy it but the wait is difficult especially when information is not available.

This is not a rehearsal. Go for it. Kiakaha

Hi everyone, I ordered my new Hanse 460#129 last December 2021. Expected delivery was February 2023. After several requests from the Italian broker Hanse replied that the delivery is postponed to October 2023. I received confirmation that the boat was ready at the beginning of December and is currently in the Greisfwald shipyard. From an initial check of the inventory it appears that the jib rails have not been installed! Confused I hope that the shipyard will resolve the problem soon to organize the shipment to Italy. God new year Smile
