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.

Rm 1060

Not a new boat but certainly an interesting one that we had already talked about. Some new videos that show better the boat potential, like this one (twin keel version) going upwind fast with full sail on a force 5/6:



Or this nice one for the ones that like strong colors, a single keel with two rudders version:



or this one (previous model) coming back from Açores with 30/34K wind:



Also the complete video of the Voile and voilers test:

RM 1060 : un baroudeur embourgeoisé

and since we are making a re-visit, some that were already posted:

Gustavsberg boat show and boat design.

Never heard about that? well you should is a very interesting one by many counts with a big disadvantage regarding the global sail community: its location is very peripheral, on the extreme North of Europe in Sweden.

Regarding those interesting points, some unique, it is the oldest boat show in the world, it is one that is in place for more time. Unlike other fairs that open during a week eventually between two included weekends this one is open only in three weekends (they take work seriously in Sweden). What is interesting is that those weekends are far apart during all winter: Saturday and Sunday, 17-18 November, Saturday and Sunday, January 12 to 13, Saturday and Sunday, February 16 to 17.

From 17 of November to 17 February the boats are in the fair space and you can contact any particular dealer to have a private visit to a boat. Isn't that an incredible idea? and one that could only happen on a country with a very civic population.: Imagine, an all fair just to yourself

But the interesting points did not finish here, they held during those weekends open and incredibly interesting open discussing forums for sailors over announced topics and the invited participants are just among the best international specialists in each field.

On the first weekend they discussed Sails and Trim on the next one (January 12 to 13) they are going to discuss yacht design and technology including rigging and on February 16 to 17, Electronics and Accessories.

Can you imagine the quantity of questions about modern design new building technologies and cruising many members of
this forum would like to make

http://www.scandinaviansailboatshow.se/program/

Take a look at the quality of invited guests for the forum about modern design new building technologies:

From Farr Yacht Design: Britton Ward.

From Judel & Vroljik : Mattihas Broker

From Simonis - Voogd : Maarten Voogd

Simonis | Voogd - New 60’ project

From sqyacht design : Stefan Qviberg

Start

Here you have an interesting speech by Stefan Qviberg about yacht design evolution. Pity it is in Sweden but you can follow what he is saying by the the pictures and graphics he shows to illustrate the subjects he is addressing.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Are ANY of the new boat designs you are representing to us Ketch riggs?

When my wife and I were "shopping" for a replacement of our ketch rigged GulfStar 50, last year, none of the newer boats we looked at were ketches.

So, we ended up buying a Tai Chaio CT 56 ketch.

Sorry, I forgot that we DID look at Amels. I even went to Guatemala to look at an especially well priced one. However, overall, we found them to be over priced compared to their spartan aft cabin. We are liveaboards and the aft cabin in an Amel sucks.

NAs talking about boat design videos.

I tried to found out some videos of the best NA talking about boat design but I found out that they like more designing great boats than talking about them.

One of the few about whom we can found some interesting videos is Juan K. I guess that the dominance of his boats on the last editions of the Volvo Ocean race have something to do with that. He is not talking about his cruising designs but anyway it is interesting information to the ones that like boat design:

VOR 70





Open 60



Americas's cup multihulls:



Another interesting movie is this one by Humphreys yacht design. Very enlighten in what regards to understand how much high technology: program computers and tank testing, is used today for designing better sailboats:



In Europe today almost all mass production boats are not designed by an only NA firm but by a team specialized in several areas. Patrick Roseo is one of the best in what regards interior designs. Of course, he is also a NA.


Patrick Roséo Architecte naval por Arthur-Kenzo

and finally the ones that work for the very rich and are specialized in big yachts. Among them Dubois Naval Architects are one of the bigger and best firms:

Hi Eric,

Thanks for that very informative post! I really appreciate that you mention both the good and less good things about your boat. It seems to be the right boat for you and your family, so congratulations on the choice of boat!

Kind regards,
Mr W

Hi Paulo,

8/10 knots might be a little early to take in a reef but on the other hand you can sail with one reef as default when you go with the family and use the full main only when racing. We used to do this on our Seaon trimaran while cruising, it´s really no issue.

Cheers!

About the location... I think it´s perfectly located

I´m thinking about going there next saturday, I won´t be there all day though. Peter Gustafsson, who has the blur.se blog, will be moderator during the discussions with the NAs.

As I´ve mentioned, my brother owns a Stefan Qviberg design, the Arcona 340. Every now and then the son of Stefan crews on my brothers boat and it´s a good opportunity to talk about boat design!

Mr W
