Hull Construction

The hull is constructed of hand laid woven roving with isophtalic polyester resin and gelcoat with Divinycell PVC foam core above the waterline to provide both sound and environmental insulation. Solid laminate below the waterline. A rubbing strake with stainless steel strip runs the length of the hull. Longitudinal and athwartship stiffeners bonded to the bilges to evenly distribute the load of the mast and keel. Provides a strong superstructure grid for the external lead keel with 24,250 lbs ballast which is secured with 14 M36 stainless steel keel bolts which are easily accessible and visible from the deep bilge. The GRP, semi-balanced rudder with 100 mm stainless steel shaft and three cast bronze bearings incorporates a Cardan link steering system. All major machinery was installed after the joining of the deck to ensure, if needed in the future, all components could be removed. 

The Hallberg-Rassy 62 was constructed to conform with Germanischer Lloyd Category A Unlimited Ocean Voyage requirements, certificate number 24934


The Hallberg-Rassy 62 has a GRP sandwich constructed deck with Divinycell PVC foam core for strength and insulation. The hull and deck are bonded with overlapping GRP-laminate, a proven design which is superior in strength and ability to prevent water incursion. New Lewmar deckhatches and portholes were added in 2016. The stemhead is fitted with dual bow rollers and a pushpit made of 30 mm stainless steel. Double stainless steel non-coated lifelines are secured by sturdy deck mounted through the caprail but do not penetrate the underside, therefore eliminating the possibility of allowing water intrusion through the deck. Port and starboard boarding gates and a large transom gate allow for easy boarding and loading. Two 16" mooring cleats fore and aft and 12" cleats mid-ship. 14 mm Slow growth teak decks are glued in place and in excellent condition. The large forward chain locker with overboard drain keep the weight of the chain low in the bow and has storage for up to five large fenders and deck equipment. The full beam lazarette has both port and starboard access and is cavernous in size!

Designer's Commentary

"As the top of the line of high quality offshore cruising boats produced by this world renowned builder, the Hallberg-Rassy 62 represents years of experience and a synergy of efforts on the part of Hallberg-Rassy and our design office to produce the best possible yacht of its kind.

The high performance, well balanced, strong hull of moderate draft is matched by an efficient and easy to handle sail plan.

The areas reserved for leisure on deck are very generous and the interior has plenty of natural light and ventilation.

A new owner will immediately be able to appreciate Hallberg-Rassy’s know how building and fitting out their yachts, as much as their design and performance in all conditions."
