Hanse 345

New test sail from YachtingMonthly.

Jesus this guy talks a lot and we see him a lot and very few footage of the boat sailing.

We have already talked about the 345 that has a modern keel and a good B/D ratio. A stiff boat with a modern hull that probably sail very well. Well, it seems that is the conclusion of the test, also a boat with an Hanse interior, meaning that in what regards that you can find better on the market.

As all this type of mainstream mass production cruisers, a kind of point and shoot boat, meaning easy to sail but not allowing a detailed sail trim, a good sailing one anyway. He says the wheel has a nice feeling and that's a thing I find essential in a sailboat in what regards sailing pleasure.

I agree with the conclusion: A very good family boat for the ones that are starting to sail or for the ones that want a safe and easy small boat with a great stability and are not very fussy about interior design. A pity that interior.
