I'm considering the Hanse 540 as a great second hand buy. And with all the money I save in comparison to a 545 or 575 I can invest a bit into fixing and improving the boat and more or less get my money back when I sell it. No?

Looks like a lot of boat for your money. It's a boat, so I have no illusion of everything working 100%. I know sails and rigging need to be replaced from time to time so it's not so important if it's like spanking new ;)

Most of these come with bowthrusters, several electric winches.. How much trouble should I expect from those on a +/- 2008 model?

I have noticed someposts about leaking water tanks.. is that a common problem?

The Yanmar engine should be pretty reliable ?

What "commom" problems are there on these boats?

All tips and opinions are welcome!

You are right, just be shure to look for well maintained boat with lot of options (electric winches, BowThr, genset, AC, WM), non-charter. Robust, seaworthy boat, comfortable, not to big, even for a couple. Quaitiy build (for mas market segment), look for epoxy version.
Original electronics are usualy obsolete, so be prepared to change a lot of things.
