There's an article by comparing the 430 with the Dufour 425 and the Beneteau Oceanis 43 available online at:,id,484,nodeid,10.html -,id,484,nodeid,10.html

Unfortunately its a pay to download, which would be fine except I dont speak German

I have seen the article. It is not a direct comparison as they tested the boats at different places and wind conditions.
Hanse offers best performance/space and value.
  • Steering (all 3 boats)
  • No other option then the L-pentry
  • Saloon gives the impression beeing smaler then Dufour and Océanis
  • Noise of the engine
Otherwise good coments. However they pointed that they had a prototype in test and things like noises from engine will be reduced i serial production boats. They mentioned a number of other improvment I have not heard from Hanse.

Thank you very much for the link! I immediately bought the report. Performance seems to be real Judel/Vrolijk.
