The 352 is a great boat. HR has a long history in that size range and they take it seriously. There is a huge market in Europe.
The older Enderlein boats are very seaworthy but not particularly fast. Without intending to offend anyone, I think the Enderlein HRs are like the older, two-digit IPs.
If the one at which you are looking is priced below market there is a reason. HRs hold value extremely well.
If you buy the HR you will want to know about HR Parts ( hr-parts.com ). They are practically in the parking lot of the HR factory.
With regards to the teak decks, call Bill Adams (his phone number is on this page: ../
). Bill used to own Free State Yachts near Annapolis and was the Midatlantic broker for HR; he sold me my 40. Bill knows as much about teak decks, especially on HRs, as anyone I have ever met. Tell Bill Auspicious sent you.
You might want to talk to Roland Ollson at HR ( +46 304 54 800 ), remembering the time difference. Roland is in charge of customer service and sales and while typically Swedish can be a fount of information if you are any good at schmoozing people. *grin*
There is a very active HR group on Yahoo ( HR_Users_Group : HR_Users_Group
). We've had some spam problems so you'll have to convince Manlio to approve your application if you aren't already an HR owner. If he doesn't, get your specific questions to me and I'll post on your behalf.
I have my moments of frustration with my boat, but overall I am very happy with my HR after five years. Auspicious is very likely my forever boat.
