I am a very new proud owner of a 341. Unfortunately no manual came with the yacht.

Does anyone by any chance know where I could find one?
Many thanks,
John

Congratulations John.  They seem like wonderful boats!  Here’s a pdf version of a 341 manual:

Hi Sam, you don't happen to know where I might find a 342 manual do you? I couldn't see one on the Hanse site. Many thanks, Rob

Hallo its basically the same manual 
The different thing is the bathplatform in 342 that the 341 lacks 
Piping and electronics is about the same

I don’t know of a place to find a 342 manual.  I found the 341 just nosing around.  However, Mark Jordon (on this site) has a 342 I think….perhaps he would have a manual and be willing to share it?  I am very curious (as I look at buying a Hanse) what the differences are between the two…and if they sail similarly and rate the same for racing….

Sam

The main reason why I had a good look at a second hand 341 at a boat show was because I had seen a really good review of a 342, but it did say it was  "based on the 341, but substantially modified at the ends."  However, I reckoned that the difference would not be too significant for normal sailing.

The specifications give the waterline length of a 341 as 8.90m, and for the 342 as 9.20m.  i.e. for us Brits over a foot difference.  Our 341 was basically berthed next door to a 342 and you could see that the stem of the 342 was significantly more vertical and so there would be more buoyancy there up front.  A visiting 342 came in to our Marina and they even had the corner of the stem-keel out of the water!    I reckon that J&V felt a change was needed when they found out that us cruising types actually have an anchor and chain on board and even dare to put some water in the tank and so some more buoyancy was needed at the front.  I can certainly tell how much water I have in the tank, just by looking at the bow immersion.

I think the changes underwater at the stern are very small, if any.  The main difference was the walk through transom, as this had become more common on boats that moored stern to in the Mediterranean.  

I have never sailed against a 342, so do not know how significant the changes were. 

For what its worth, in Scotland, we have a local odd handicap system and it puts the 341 between a J70 and a Bavaria 38.

I think most differencies between the 341 and the 342 have already been covered in this thread but there is another one. The mast on the 342 is tapered at the top and I recall this was actually advertised when the 342 was introduced. I don't know if this is to save weight at the top or if it is to make the mast bend differently. I am curious to know.

Another snag is that Hanse seemed to have moved the calorifier from under the starboard aft bunk to the lazarette. This means that it takes longer for the hot water to reach the taps and that the risk of freezing in the winter is greater on a boat like mine that spends all year in the water.
