Hi Andrey
 

I have a 540 which was due to leave the factory in early May that has been delayed 2 or 3 weeks due to hold ups in the hull painting.  Apparently they have received more orders for hull painting than expected.  

Regards Richard

Curious to know if anyone has details on what the "hull painting problem" is. I wouldn't have thought there was anything new here. Hanse has been colouring the hulls for some time now - different methods depending on colour type and construction type (epoxy vs glass). So what's changed?

From what I was told there has been many more people choosing to have coloured / painted hulls, more than Hanse expected even allowing for an increase.

I do not think so, because when they take the order they have to know is it possible to produce it in time or not. I do not think that they do not have a plan. As far as I know from dealer they have some technical problem with painting epoxy hull of 430

Today I was informed by my dealer that the delivery of my Hanse 430 would be 3-4 weeks late due to problems with forms. He claimed that they had problems with delivery dates on all of their larger models.  The boat was supposed to be delivered early July.

 

The boat was ordered in March, and its incomprehensible to me that a supposedly professional builder does not have its production capacity planed, I just hope that this does not indicate poor quality in the build process...

What I find incomprehensible is that Hanse is not providing information to this forum, and by the looks of the posts above, to their dealers either. Whatever problems they are experiencing, they'd be far better served by providing facts rather than leaving dealers to make excuses and making a fertile ground for rumour.

I'm glad I havent signed an order yet. The boats look fantastic, but I'm having doubts about the organisation. Doubts I dont have when dealing with more established builders.  I'll give Hanse a little more time, because I  agree with their design philosphy, but if facts dont start to surface, I think I'll join the queue down at Beneteau

Of course more established builders do not face a 40% increase of the demand for their production!!
Saying that I have to say that I have received this morning "the information that the boat is delayed"!! till the end of May.
That's we need to cope with, when we want to sail real sailing boats!!
