I have a Hanse 371. It is an excellent sailer and very strongly made. It goes very well to windward, and is a joy to tack up the narrow inlets we have here. The maximum speed so far (recoreded by the GPS) was 13.6 knots with spinnaker, 9.5 with plain sail.
I have had a few minor problems but all were promptly resolved under warranty.
The mustard yellow interior is not standard. There are many colors available. My boat has dark green stripes and covers, and dark green "suede" upholstery. Very attractive against the reddish mahogany. I have added a full set of instruments and autopilot, stereo and an Espar furnace.
I don''t like the factory dodger which I ordered. It is too square looking. Next time I would order it without it and have one made locally. That is it for dislikes! I love sailing this boat, but ist is very quiet and fast under power.
