Being lifted today, I took the opportunity to check the excact draft of my 400e with shoal keel.
Depending on the source, even from Hanse itself, I sometimes read 1.60m and sometimes 1.65m.
Turns out it is about 1.72 m, in my case.
Measured the waterline on the antifouling to the ground and  deducted hight from ground to bottom keel, on both sides and averaged.
I like that, better a little more than a litte less, benefits the pointing but still allows me to park the boat behind the house Smile.

The truth is:
Mainly all  boats have a slightly bigger draft than the papers.
The papers are without the load of full water tank, full fuel tank, personal equipment and so on.

My 370 has a draft of 195cm following hanse catalog.
In truth i have 205cm.....

On my H 370 I had exactly 2m instead of 1,95m. As the boat was fully loaded for a long holyday trip we had 2,05m-2,10m. It depends on the beer load.

I could imagine, if the boat is completely empty the draft should be around 1,95m as documented.
