Jens Gerhardt, CEO of HanseYachts, comments on the figures: “These figures certainly include some customers whose purchase was only made up because they couldn’t buy during the lockdown, but we are also seeing a significant increase in new and first-time customers . “The pandemic is apparently giving the entire industry a surge in demand.
The CEO continues: “We all don’t yet know how the pandemic will play out. However, if we can continue to work as we do today, then HanseYachts AG will emerge stronger from the crisis. “
