Hi Magnum,
 
It is a good question but also the same thing for every builder where a model that sat in one category is then in another without any changes to the boat.
 
A 385 delivered in 2016 is the old Cat A and then one delivered in 2017 (built to exactly the same specification) is Cat B.
 
As you know from your research it is simply a matter of the method of measurement universally changing so that it is more realistic in terms of the way the boat is loaded and finally used.
 
The new measurements are much more realistic in a "real world" situation and therefore a good idea but as you say some explanation would have been a good idea.
 
Kind regards
 
Phil

Just been to Southampton boat show. The 388 looks like a good boat, but if you're a 385 owner you may not be impressed with some new features, I personally wouldn't swap my 385 for one. The 418 is a different story though, Hanse have improved the feel of that below deck, we really like the new island V berth and lighter saloon, may be tempted to upgrade if we can get a good deal.

lighter timber interiors is a real improvement, lighter more open feel, as to increased number of hatches and port lights lovely to look at but i cringe at issues this will cause during ownership. This forum is full of leaking hatch, portlight and window entries and the more that are in the hull & decks the more that will leak, flexing stressing under sail etc.

Synthetic skin fitting (well done Hanse finally) but still brass ball valves and tails (come on dont do half a job Hanse).

Outboard chain plates and inability to run more headsail options not ideal in my view.

Lift the floor boards and look under the bunks in transom cavity, does anyone think build quality is better, worse or the same as say 10 years ago...................i have my own view on pre vs during and post GFC quality!
