I'm glad I have the 2007 version. I definitely don't like the new portlights (on 430, 470, etc. and now on 400 too). Am I the only one?

Best,

Michele

I agree, though taste is not to be discussed.
But in this case ( model 2008 370, 400 and 430) it looks like innovation for the case of innovation and not for the case of better and more pratical design. From my point of view the exteriur of those 3 models are not in design balance. The 350 and the 470 are much more in design balance.  
If it can be of any confort, they all 3 looks better from the inside than from the outside Smile and still great boats for the money.

Personally, I much prefer the look of the original 5 window layout and the (until recently) Hanse "signature" strip of teak along the top of the coachroof on each side.  Each to his own when it comes to looks, however, as Abstinenz says.
It does seem odd, however, to reduce the amount of opening ports.  When moored and it is hot it is useful to have as many open as possible to catch the breeze - or are we all supposed to go for air conditioning now?
And why is the opening port in this window silver/aluminium, not black as on the 370 and other examples seen previously?Wacko

I just (a week ago) ordered a Hanse 400. She will we delivered in April 2008. I got a copy of a brochure from the dealer about the changes of Hanse 370 and 400 for 2008 ("WHAT IS NEW? Hanse 370 and Hanse 400").  In this brochure is mentioned "2 add. small hatches, near companion way". Has somebody been able to find these hatches from the new Hanse 400?
 
P.s. All the other changes I am able to identify:
- Face lift on the deck layout. Design as the bigger boats
- Flush hatch
- Nav instruments installed at the coaming near the helmsman
- 4 fixed large acrylic glass side windows
- All deck fittings in best quality of marine stainless steel (V4A)?
- Steering pedestal - new design
 
BR,

Hi
I won't discuss the looks of the new range, but i just wanted to mention that i am surprised the the yard have opted for large dark acrylic (plexiglass) windows.
some years ago i had a Jeanneau which coming from the 80's had also these large plexiglass windows and also dark color. These will always expand and contract under temperature change and break their seal over time. secondly being dark there is a tremendous calory absorption, which contributes to the acrylic crazing over time - which is quick, seeing that i changed mine once, and they showed signs of crazing 3 yrs on.
As we all had the problem of ventilation, most choose to put an opening porthole in these plexiglass windows - which is what Hanse have now done too on these versions,...i can't say it looks seamless, but more Ad Hoc.

We got our 400 in April this year. To day I saw the modernized 400 and I am glad to have the original version. There are also changes in the interior. The base of the entrance is higher, so the door is only the lager part. The doors in the cabin are with a flat top incase of the small bow. The floor is like not finished seamless teak. The Plexiglasĺs on all the ship is transparency incase of the soft green color.  I am sure that new owners will like the modernized version and the most important thing is how the boat sails and that is one of the things they did not change.

Here are some pictures of my Hanse 400e "Sound of Silence" during preparation in Valencia. At this stage, some deck equipment and 2 layers of primer has been done.

Some comments that I haven't seen before in this forum:
- I have the electric winch on stb side. This means that there is a box inside stb aft cabin, so the height is about 10-15 cm lower than on port. It also means that the little hatch in the deck is gone.
- There are pre installed "rails" for curtains.
- Behind the two aft cabins there is a quite big room that is nearly unused (only some cables and hoses). This room can be entered from both aft cabins, and can probably be used to store a lot of items that is not used that often for example spareparts.

Side

For some reason, I have problems uploading more pictures. Will try again another day.

She looks beautiful! Congratulations!
 
The room behind the 2 cabins is big enough to crawl into and is very useful for accessing wiring and plumbing when you want to do modifications or new installations. Some of the typical installations in this room includes Webasto air heater, motor room vent fan, cockpit shower hot water regulator and stern anchor winch, but there is still room left for spares storage or other things!Approve
 
The curtain rails are standard and quite useful for attaching curtains of your own design. On my boat, I was surprised of not getting curtain rails in the bathroom. This is the place where you really want some privacy....

More experiences:
In the 2008 model, the two chairs on stb side are standard.
I don't have rails for the curtains in the toilets either.
There are no fire extinguishers. I have checked the contract and I can't find anything about it, so I guess this is correct.
