Haber 34

One of the boats that is going to be present at Dusseldorf is the Haber 34. It is not my kind of sailboat but it makes sense for those that want a small Motor-sailor that maximizes interior space and living quality. The boat is made in Poland and has been raising interest in Germany. they have a version that can lower easily the mast.

Sven Yrvind

This guy is incorrigible

After having crossed the Atlantic in this:



He is going to circumnavigate non stop on a 10ft boatand probably he is going to manage it

His general theory:

"Most people misunderstand life. Let me explain.

Comfort does not make you happy, on the contrary it is dangerous to your health. It makes you lazy, fat and bored. It is only by using energy that you can create energy and it is the surplus of energy that makes you happy and healthy. Happiness cannot be bought for money...

n a thousand ways our civilization over stimulates us. Not just by nicotine, by cars or by lending us money. Most people nowadays are slaves to many masters.

As with all addictions we need more drugs, more borrowed money, bigger cars and bigger boats. We get deeper and deeper into trouble and misery.

With my voyage I hope to show mankind that, luckily there is an opposite way, a more natural, sane and ecological way to be happy. Slowly as I have gained insight I have made myself less and less dependent on stimulants, I have become less and less a slave. I have never used coffee, beer, vine, or tobacco, not even once. Twenty years ago I stopped drinking tee. I have no TV. Ten years ago I stopped listening to the radio. It took about a year for me to get detoxed. Now I need no radio. I hear my inner voice loud and clear. I do my own thinking...

In my planned trip I will be at sea for more than a year. There I will be protected from over stimulation. Hopefully that way I will gain much of my senses potential power and increase the clarity of my mind. A voyage like my planned one will give plentiful stimulation. I aim to come back a younger man to start building a nice small cruising boat; one not restricted by a ridicules ten feet rule".


Well, Sven is peculiar but is not mad at least in what regards sailing. Its accomplishments speak for themselves:

"Yrvind has made several ocean crossings in his tiny boats. In 1980, Yrvind rounded Cape Horn in 'Bris II', a 20'/5.90m boat of his own design, alone and in the middle of winter, a record for smallest boat to round the Cape. This achievement won Yrvind the 1980 Royal Cruising Club medal for seamanship. In the Roaring Forties he allegedly collided with a whale."


The last crossing was last year, from Europe to the US (Florida).

About sailboats he says:

"A small boat well made is safer than a big one. It is less complicated and smaller forces are acting on it. On a small boat you have more control."

And he really means small Take a look at the model for the circumnavigation:







A true nutshell You know that in Portuguese, that is a language with a lot of expressions taken from the sea and boats mean figuratively the weakest of all boats: "A casca de noz".


Obviously he don't think that way

The project:




The boat:

Bavaria 33.

Well, in what regards new, the hull, it is the same that was designed by Farr some years ago, but all the rest is different.

It seems that it is the first one on the cruiser line that will share a new look, in the outside and inside... and it was needed. The actual line is, with the exception to the new Visions, ugly and with strong but not very well designed interiors. I mean they are practical but are ages away from the design quality on Italian and French boats.

I like the new design and interiors. Pity that this boat will not offer a traveler. Maybe a good dealer with good contacts on the factory can command one with reinforcements on the settee bench near the wheel to install one. Of course that will imply to ditch that table and have a removable one.







For the ones that are interested on this size an interesting comparative test between the new Hanse 345 and Bavaria 33 can be found on the last edition of yacht magazine, both boats at the water at the same time?:

Hi,..

the conditions are not that bad. For that wind there is not a lot of sea. But you are right, the speeds are amazing and it would take a lot of time to recover a guy overboard. Maybe a cultural thing? I guess in Europe people are more concerned about safety. All those rules and regulations for more inconvenient they are have the advantage to create a mentality where safety is a real concern.

Hanse 325/345

Hanse 325:




Well, I don't understand why they have a relatively new 325 and now they make a 345. Less than a ft difference seems not to make sense in what regards a line but in fact the boats are very different. I don't think the 325 is a match for the Bavaria, that looks better and nicer but the 345 is another story and that's probably why Yacht magazine chose to make a comparative between the Bavaria 33 and the 345 and not the 325 that is closer in size and probably in price.

As I said the 345 is a very different boat and I like it. It seems to me the better design on the new line of Hanse: Not too beamy with 3.50 and with a high B/D for this class of boats (33%) the boat looks bigger than a 34ft and the interior looks better designed than on other Hanse.

I bet this boat is going to be a best seller notm only among the Hanse boats, but globally. A pity the lack of a traveller but maybe a big dealer can convince the guys from Hanse to put on the top of the cabin the necessary reinforcements to mount one.

Paulo, not Paolo

Well, probably you did not see these guys on a Jeanneau 3200 going fast. Ok, it is a lead one but also one that costs 1/3 of the Dragonfly. They say the max speed was 2K superior of the max one on that Trimaran and they don't say it is a record so.... The guys look also a lot less nervous



Since we are talking about the Jeanneau 3200, look at this guy racing on a Dufour 45e that cannot believe he cannot go faster than a small 32ft performance cruiser.

I cannot wait to see if the new Jeanneau Sunfast 36 will be faster



Regards

Paulo

Hi Paulo

There is a rumour that the new H345 will replace the 325 and the 355 which would then make sense - the range would then be 345, 385, 415, 445, 495, 545, 575 and 630e

The Hanse owners website now has a separate section for the H345 - New Hanse 345 - myHanse - Hanse Yachts Owners Forum - Page 1

I have reviewed the H345 in this forum.

I think Hanse introduced the H345 in response to the Dufour 335. Both boats offer a lot of boat for their size and include some really interesting innovations. One point to note is the mainsheet system with Hanse opting for the coachroof block system and Dufour opting for a pad eye in the cockpit system that is fitted to the cockpit table.

Voile et Voilier in the November edition commented that the H345 offered pleasure with complete security and found the boat to be very seaworthy. At Euro 100,344 the new H345 will be hard to beat if you are looking for a cruiser of this size. Just my opinion as a Hanse owner without any other affiliations

Dufour 335, Hanse 345 and Bavaria 33

Hi David,

Difficult to comment on that because I agree with everything you say (and I am not a Hanse owner). I would like to just point out that the system Dufour and Bavaria had opted in what regards control of the boom and mainsail through the main-sheet has the advantage of a better position. I mean it is on the end of the boom and that contributes for a better boom control. Of course, Hanse has that system that pull the boom from two different sides and even if that is not as good as a traveler, it will also give some additional control.

The Dufour has the same system as the Bavaria 33 but has two additional lateral pad eyes om the side that permits a very good boom position in what regards downwind sailing that is one the limitations of the Bavaria system and in a lesser degree from the Hanse too.

In what regards having the commands at hand both Dufour and Hanse offer winches at reach of the wheels-man while the Bavaria has them more far away. Even if the Bavaria is a narrower boat and has no need of a two wheel system the fact is that on the other two (that have twin wheels) it is a lot easier to go forward.

The Dufour 335 has also a very nice interior and it is a very nice looking boat.

To be fair, some movies with the Dufour:








The truth is that most buy the boats by its looks by the interior and by the price. In what regards price the Bavaria 33 is a clear winner, costing almost 10 000 euros less than their rivals (71 667) while the Hanse 345 and the Dufour 335 are very close (83 900 and 83 283). Prices are in Euros and without tax and off course this is not the real price of the boats: This are standard boats and then you have to put all the extras, so to be sure about the boat prices you would have to ask for an offer with a decently equipped boat.

Regarding what people do not normally see, in fact these boats are very different: The Bavaria is less beamy (3.42 to H-3.50 and D-3.49) is lighter (5200kg to H-6200 and D-5450) but most of all has less stability, having a smaller beam and a smaller B/D ratio : (25% to H-33% and D-28%). In fact Dufour is well inside the average of B/D for these type of boats it is Hanse that is offering a boat with an unusual stiffness in this market segment. That stiffness and B/D is more typical of the more expensive performance cruisers.

In what regards the boats in standard version the Hanse is the one with a smaller Sail Area/Displacement and will be the slower in light winds: B-17.3, D-17.7 and H-16.6, but the Hanse due to its superior stiffness will be able to carry full sail more time and will be faster and safer in higher winds and bad weather.

Of course, to have the Hanse performing better in light winds you have just to have it with a bigger genoa but then you will pay more and will lose the self-tacking jib that is one of the brand trade marks. Both the Bavaria and the Dufour come standard with a genoa, not a jib.

If I had to choose I would pick up the Hanse and I would want one with a 135% genoa and a traveler over the cockpit. Now that would make it considerably more expensive than the Dufour

Regards

Paulo

Amazing vid, Paulo!

I have been a read-only for month, but now I REALLY need to know more abour the SF36. Is it announced yet, are there rumours? I am interested in the Salona 35s, so maybe I should wait for the SF...
