The shower in the Hanse 388 (same as 385?), is it designed to be used "hands-free"? It's mounted on the wall behind the toilet so I assume it could be possible to use it while sitting on the toilet cover?

The 385 has a different and flawed layout. I feel that by requiring the inclusion of the "form before function" round basin, the 385 layout forced a less than ideal location for the toilet. This means that it is impossible to stand in front of the basin because the toilet gets in the way. It is also difficult to use the toilet as there is insufficient knee room. Gents certainly cannot kneel at the toilet.
The shower is excellent except that the floor drains towards the basin and away from the actual shower drain.
Hopefully the 388 resolves many of these issues.
Even in the 385 I tend to hold the shower head to get the water where I need it as it has quite a narrow spray pattern.

Newer yachts is not always an improvment. On both the 370 and 400 there is a acrylic wall separating the shower from the toilet. Plenty of room! Only issue is that the floor leans in the wrong way leaving water in the toilet part even if the sink for the shower is in the right location.

We need a bigger boat! Wacko

I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it will work.

It seems after all these years Hanse has still not learned that water prefers to flow downhill! My 371 is the same. A well designed shower floor is conical with the train at the lowest point. It should drain even when heeled 5 degrees or so. I would use a 10 degree slope. Then add a grating to make a flat floor to stand on.
