can’t comment on the 348, but in the 40’ size Hanse’s CE rating is generally superior to most French models (or was when I walked round Düsseldorf in 2019). The Hanse 418 rating A 10, vs the french equivalents being A8 or less. 

What I’m unsure of is whether the builder gets to choose the crew size or whether that is some formulaic calculation based on number of Berths. I wonder what the Beneteau 35.1 would rate if it were with a crew of 8? 

If there is an element of choice with regards to crew numbers than I’m not sure why Hanse would favour a large crew number over an A rating? For instance I wouldn’t really want to sail with 10 people on a Hanse 418 (A10 rated)

I think (=guess) that the crew number is just shorthand for a specific amount of weight placed somewhere in/on the boat (I think the positioning was one thing that was changed in 2016 with the updated regulations). 

The Beneteau 35.1 is rated for three different "maximum people", so I assume the manufacturers get to choose themselves what ratings they attempt to fit into (with what number of people).
