Has anyone ever seen or tested how the dinghy garage with the new 548 works? The davits solution Hanse offers looks fine but is unpractical for the Med as you have to moor stern to the pier.

I definitely agree..

There are many reasons actually for NOT to buy the davids...

1) They are not strong enough to hold a boat which is big enough to use on Hanse 548. 

2) They are not practical. The placement ( under the helmsman seats ) is really horrible .. You would not want all its equipment to be under your feet when you are at the stern.

3) They occupy space, in the dingy garage and make it rather small place... 


I would rather deflate or half deflate the dingy ( if needed depending on its size ) and keep it  in the garage rather than worrying about the stern when sailing in rough seas or manouvering for the pantoon.

Because I thought it was unpractical, I did not buy them...

If you bought the option ( electrical inflator ) for your boat, it also helps you deflate the boat as well if your boat is not fitting the Dingy Garage.

Sounds more practical rather than watching my stern  ...

This is my humble opinion..

Agree on most points...  the 548 is obviously different than our 575, but some experiences:

  1. I didn't order the garage options for our 575.    I ended up doing it all after I brought the boat to the states.   I personally thought the $22K dinghy and the $18K roller system a bit much (!?). 
  2. I ordered parts off the internet and had something done locally that works just fine for about 1/6th the cost (dinghy included).   My point is that you can probably design something yourself and implement it for a lot less money.
  3. We have an AB 9.6 Aluminum RIB and we only have to deflate the bow tubes a bit. Much bigger than the Williams jet tender they tried to sell us.  Having the compressor option was worth the money and it takes seconds to inflate/deflate as part of launch/recover.  You can also use the compressor on fenders and other items.  Its not going to inflate bike tires or other high pressure needs, but its quite useful.
  4. We ended up with sheet bags lining the inside of the garage for storage of cleaning materials, line, etc.   (See pictures).  This worked out VERY well.    Keeps the cockpit lockers clear and we didn't want them in the sail locker forward.   Things are pretty securely held,  even in rough seas..
  5. Outboard storage is an equal issue.    We have a YANMAR 15hp 2-stroke and its not something you can store inside the dinghy garage (inside the dinghy).   Some engines cannot be stored horizontally as water can get into the wrong places.   We have a Garhauer lift that disassembles and matches up with the Edson outboard mount on the stern rail.  
FWIW

Thanks Black Diamond for your suggestions. In the meantime we reduced our project to the Hanse 508, which wasn't out when we were looking at the 548. Sometimes less is more, because the 508 offers more or less everything, too. Second thoughts were also "why do I need a garage, if I can throw a dinghy of 13 kg singlehanded from deck into the water?"
So we will store it on the middeck ("sunbed deck") as we did on the 470. We're sailors and don't need any sunbed cushions for god's sake. Of course we will have a close look at the lazarette of the 508 and the storage possibilites at Dusseldorf. I like your bags on the side, they are a good idea. I just hope the opening to the lazarette is big enough to get into it without doing some yoga wrenches.

There was not a davitt option on the 545. I looked into the matter but concluded that the garage was more than enough. We use about 10 minutt launching our 3.1 meter dingy. It is defalted and stored in the garage, and leaves lots of room for the outboard and other water toys.

Cheers
