A Hanse 385 survey by Marine Surveyor Guy Nicholls at Port Solent. Solent Marine Surveys regularly cover the areas of Lymington to Chichester, with surveys further afield including Europe, having recently surveyed in Holland, Spain, Greece, France.

The Hanse range like many modern cruisers are built on a production line basis, often using a tray matrix or grid to stiffen the hull and connect the keel and chainplate loadings. Like many modern yachts, the Hanse range use modern resins making osmosis and moisture related defects a thing of the past. Areas however that are often found in this type of production yacht include moisture within the end grain balsa cored deck, and bulkhead attachment issues. This particular example however was free of any significant defects.
