I have not seen one in person but I was trying to be helpful with a fellow who ended up buying the H37 boat that will be at the Annapolis Boat Show in two weeks.
He did a lot of leg work on the Hanse and copied me on much of what he found out. It would appear that Hanse''s are a pretty big step up quality wise from the Catalinas, Hunters, Beneteau ''number series'', Jeaneaus, Bavarias and the other ''value oriented boats. They are a different type of boat than a Beneteau First series but are probably a slight step up in quality from them as well. It would appear that they are on a level with one of the better quality European boats like a Dehler or ''X'' Boat or perhaps on the level with a Tartan or Sabre over here. I am anxious to crawl over the boat in the flesh when it gets here.
