dear members, I am thinking to buy a Used Hanse 630 (alternatively540) Model 2007 and would like to know whether there are any known problems with hull, keel, electronics. The boat I am looking at has 4double cabins 1 single, lazyjack. 4 owners. 
Appreciate much your feedback, thanks

Leonius,

You probably will not get much feedback on a 630e. We rarely see posts from 630 owners. But regarding your question, in general terms a 2007 produced boat which has not been upgraded would need a lot of work. For example the 2007 electronics would need replacing, the rig would probably want to be replaced (your insurance company will probably make it a requirement), I would replace all the sheets and halyards and there is a fair chance of the blocks, organizers clutches etc will need at least servicing or replacing. A 630 is a big boat, expensive to berth  and handle. A 540 would be cheaper to buy, berth etc but still an old boat. If you are looking at buying a 630 you could also buy a 575 instead. You would get a much newer boat with the same beam and cockpit size, an actual garage rather than just a storage area and more importantly a much younger boat. I am sure you could buy a 575 for a similar price of a 630. Just my 2 cents. Good luck!
