We are considering changing to a Hanse 415 from a Jeannneau and would be very grateful for owners comments regarding the build quality and customer service they have experienced from Hanse. We will buying in the UK and I have heard good comments regarding the UK brokers.  Any comments good or bad will be very welcome.  Thank you.

IM very good. Hull and rigging very good. Some fittings are worth upgrading. Holding tank worth expanding on at least one heads. Loads of space if you have the 2 cabin version. I have the baby sister, but sailed on. 415 in Dubai.

you are in luck being in the UK, Inspiration Marine have won the top dealer award for Hanse more than once. Any factory boat needs some attention before it is ship shape for new owners and Hanse is no different. The 415 is a good performance cruiser. If you plan on going off shore or seeing heavier weather, then some upgrades on the blocks and lines are a good idea, these areas are built to a price point. If you plan on club racing then the newer Hanse models are not as easy to prepare. The lines, rope clutches and other controls are located well for short handed sailing but don't work when a full crew is aboard. If racing is going to be an important part of your schedule, look at Dehler.

Hello Viv

I cannot speak to the 415 - I had a 400e and now have a 455. In the first instance I too needed to be convinced about the quality of the boats as I was moving from (for me) a very trusted brand (in design & engineering terms) of Etap. (I'd had 4 Etap yachts since the 80's and considered each to be excellent).

Nevertheless I was impressed with the Hanse 400e - all the key components are/were of good quality - and the boat itself performed superbly on an extended cruise in 2014 circumnavigating the British Isles - as well as being competitive on club rallies. 

I was looking for a larger yacht and had explored other marques. However the 455 fitted the bill admirably and in my opinion is actually even better finished than the 400 - and Hanse had made all the changes that I wanted to the specification of the 400 - so I'm (very) happily continuing with another vessel from Greifswald. 

As regards the UK dealers - Inspiration Marine - they were fine to deal with in 2007 (then as Hanse UK) and fine to deal with in 2015/16. They have increased their support staff to meet the demand for their services which as a new boat owner is really good as regards commissioning, fit-out etc.  IM continue to receive accolades as Hanse Dealer of the Year which should also give further reassurance. 

Good luck with your decision making.

Hi, good choice! We have had Night Train for over two years now and apart from a few small things are very happy with her, build quality generally very good and the initial design is very well thought out.
Would agree totally with the above posts the two cabin version is very roomy with an excellent galley and very easy to sail short handed.
From what I have heard Inspiration marine has an excellent reputation and have even given us advice when we have needed it.
Enjoy

Candle wax on the sole board joints stops creeking - I intend to do mine when they do start to creek (which I'm sure they will one day). I think the flashing light on the control panel may indicate a fuse has blown if it's just on one of the switches

I think there are 2 reasons why the sliding hatch gets stiff in hot weather.

1.  Tight on width.
Firstly just try spraying the edges with a silicone.  Final remedy is that you may need to remove the hatch and either sand off a bit of the wood slider sides or sand down the hatch.  
2.  Our problem was that the ptfe sliding strip is screwed down and glued.  If the glue fails then in hot weather the strip bulges upwards between the screws and make the hatch stiff.  Solution; knife in some araldite under the strip and hold it down.  We had made the situation worse as we have a cockpit tent that gets very hot, even in Scotland, so when ever we leave the yacht we now leave a fabric cover on the hatch.

Back to the original question.  We are still very happy with our 16 yr old Hanse 341.

I think that if you try google,  you may find that epoxy will not stick to PTFE or nylon runners. If I am correct, then you will make matters worse, by making the strips bulge upwards if you force epoxy, Araldite,  underneath
