“It’s a smaller-size Hanse cruiser, but with some big-boat features,” says SAIL’s Cruising Editor, Charles J. Doane. At last fall’s Annapolis Boat Show, Doane had a chance to take a close look at the new Hanse 348. Some of the boat’s highlights include under-deck galleries for the control lines running aft to the cockpit and improved lazyjack positioning. Doane also talks deck layout, sail options, living space and how it all fits together on a small cruiser.
