Our current lovely boat was built in 2005 and lowered into the water for the first time in 2006. Now, although age is just a number (or so I keep telling myself), there are a few items we would want to update. This blog page is a summary of what we have thought of so far.

Thank You for the Music
We love music, and on our previous boat, we used to listen to music quite frequently. On our current Hanse 531, during our first season with her: unfortunately, not so much.
Hanse 531 Electrical Systems
Our Hanse 531 is a cool boat as it is, but we do have some upgrades in mind for her. Before touching anything, however, I thought it would be good to get some understanding of the current state of affairs. Thus, to jump in and start somewhere, on this blog page, I’ll try to document the “before” version of our electrical system.
Vinyl Wrapping Update
I’ve received a few questions about our whole vinyl wrapping experience, so here’s a short post about that!
Hanse 388 Rigging
A while ago I got a question about what lines go where on the deck, and a “maybe you could write a blog post about the rigging?” Yes, I can!
Hanse 388 Interior: The Aft Cabins
In this post, I will take a look at the two aft cabins in our Hanse 388.
Hanse 388 Interior: The Master Cabin
In the third post of the “Every Nook and Cranny” series we’ll jump straight into the master cabin of our Hanse 388. Or “our bedroom”, as we like to call it.
Hanse 388: Deck Storage
Earlier on, I started a series of posts with the intention of describing our Hanse 388 in a bit more detail than what you get from the official marketing documentation. The first post was called Hanse 388 — Every Nook and Cranny, and here’s number two, continuing the deck storage theme.
Hanse 388 — Every Nook and Cranny
Half a year ago, I was trying to figure out (among other things) what gas bottle would fit on a Hanse 388. It was a bit challenging since I couldn’t find any measurements for where it’s supposed to be stored. Now I know better, so starting with the gas bottle, and slowly progressing through the rest of the boat, I will try to write down stuff that hopefully might be useful to other potential Hanse 388 buyers.
