I agree in 100% with the critics. I war really frightend seeing the 388 at the boot-dusseldorf. The cold coffin-like owner-cabin and the small space when sitting on the toilett e.g. is a no go for me.

I can not understand that the constructors and designers of hanse made such a sabotage to the shipyard.
It seems they never sailed a boat for more than half an hour.

Dear constructors, please read our complaints here an write your comment in this forum !

I am also glad to own a 385! As much as people like the built-in stairs on the swim platform, I also see them as potentially dangerous. Seems like getting off or on the platform in the dark could lead to a serious ankle injury if you happen to step on that area without paying attention. I would rather have a flat surface there I think.

I was able to see the 388 at the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show this past weekend, and I agree with most of the comments made about it. One positive thing I would say: after looking at all the sailboats in the 38' range (Dufour, Beneteau, Bavaria, etc.) I believe that the Hanse is the best. In my mind, it clearly was the nicest of everything I saw in the size and price range.

Hi All,
.
I don't know...  I am in possession of the owner manuals of the 348 and 388.
About the CE design categories, yes, the 348 remains in category B despite an increase in
keel weight (+-250 Kgs).
The 388 is now filed in A, but ONLY in the classic mast version.  The furling mast version
REMAINS in B !
.
The prices announced by HANSE in Düsseldorf have already been increased by 2% two months ago...
Also changed for a few options (more in higher).  Funny politics !
.
If interested, I have the Düsseldorf prices of all Hanse units on a Excel sheet... 
Have a good Day.

Sorry,
.
The 388 is now filed in category A WITH the additional keel weight...
Not concern the 348.
Have a good Day.

The 388 is filed in the categories A and B either. It depends on number of people on board.

I suggest unless we intend to head into the roaring forties, or navigate Cape Horn, a 385 or 388 will be more than sufficient. It’s an ideal boat for coastal cruising, or even for a gentle drift across the Atlantic. My 385 has taken me quite sedately around the Baltic, through the North Sea, sailed extensively in the English Channel and navigated the Atlantic Coast of France numerous times. I hope to circumnavigate The British Isles in coming months, it’s not too big for most Harbours, and plenty sturdy enough in the WAZ of the British Coast. Not heard of one breaking up or loosing a keel yet either. Bon Voyage, Mr Blue Sky.

Hi Adrian,

I'm a little behind you, still in the Baltic 3 years after taking ownership, however I am returning to the UK this spring.  I am considering a circumnavigation of Great Britain next year so I am keen to hear more about your own experiences this year.

I also agree that the category A/B issue should not affect the majority of owners who will rarely be more than 24 hours from land.

And we do know that "Interlude" made it from Greifswald to Sydney - a terrific achievement.

Magnum, Looking at that I think I’d rather be on boat ‘B’ than boat ‘A’ so I’ll stick with my 385, although being a 2016 vintage is CAT A 🤔

S&J, Interlude had an amazing blog, they are an inspiration to us coastal cruisers. We keep a blog for our own amusement, you can see how we cope with <4m waves around Britain this season @ mrblueskysite.wordpress.com
