Fjord Boats Completely Taken Over

Greifswald, 12 November 2007 - The HanseYachts Group has completely taken
over Fjord Boats, a Norwegian motorboat manufacturer, and now holds 100
percent of the shares in Fjord Boats AS.

Following the acquisition of a 51-percent participation in the Norwegian
enterprise, motorboats have been developed and produced in the HanseYachts
Group since March 2006. The Fjord 40 Open, the first motor yacht model
developed at HanseYachts, was introduced at the boat fair in Düsseldorf in
January 2007. 'We have been developing the motor yachts marketed under the
Fjord brand into a second mainstay of our Group,' said Michael Schmidt,
founder and CEO of HanseYachts.

In July 2007 HanseYachts exercised its option to acquire the remaining
shares (49 percent) in Fjord Boats AS held by Mornor AS, via its wholly
owned subsidiary, Yachtzentrum Greifswald participations GmbH. The sale
price, about which strict silence has been maintained by mutual agreement,
is oriented on the market price and was determined by an auditing firm.

The former managing director, Morten Nordvold, has resigned his position as
CEO at Fjord Boats AS. Daily business is currently being coordinated by
Jens Ahrens, in addition to his position as brand manager at Fjord and
Moody. Jens Ahrens will soon be officially named the new Managing Director
at Fjord Boats AS.
