The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is a was based on the successful HR 46, with, as the company puts it “fifteen more years of Frers’ and Hallberg-Rassy’s experience incorporated”. Yacht Magazine declared it “The Measure for Blue Water Cruisers”, and many still find that true today. Built with all of the qualities and features the brand is known for, this model really makes the most of the interior space, with three double cabins and a vast saloon.
This Hallberg-Rassy 48 is clearly well maintained and has been continuously upgraded yacht. She’s listed as being in excellent condition and the photos support that. With a fully hydraulic mast, genoa and jib furling system, she’s well outfitted for short-handed world cruising.
She received new standing rigging in 2016, new running rigging in 2019 and a complete Furuno navigation system. She has three fully electric winches, a washing machine, a watermaker, a generator and new battery bank as of 2017. If you’re in the market for a Hallberg-Rassy, this is certainly worth some serious consideration. Listed for about $665,000 USD by XLNT Yachting, she awaits her new owners in Tjörn, Sweden.
