It's interesting to read the preceding posts. All talk about comfor items, aesthetics etc. Not a single
one mentions sailing ability, sailing responsiveness, handling or speed under sail. Having owned a 2006 Hanse 370e since new I can tell you that it is a great sailing boat. My wife and I cruise
extensively and when we are nor cruising I race
her, both around the buoys and distance races. In my last 7 distance races I have collected 5 flags
including one 4th, two thirds, two second and two firsts in our division. We have placed as high as 10th against 185 other boats ranging from 27 to 84'. Additionally, after 9 seasons of extensive sailing, our Hanse has had no major problems and continues to look great. Choosing Hanse in 2005 was a longshot. But ended up being the right decision. Additionally, price
my 2006 Hanse against a comparable 2006 Beneteau. The difference in resale price
might say something.
