Quality, Safety, Comfort, Craftsmanship
The Hallberg-Rassy 62, designed by German Frers and first produced in 1997 was the flagship model, showing off HR’s deep commitment to the safety and comfort of their owners. These boats are thoroughly thought out to ensure both the ownership experience and the sailing experience will be all pleasure.
|Water Tank Capacity:||413 Gallons|
|Fuel Tank Capacity:||426 Gallons|

|Number of Engines:||1|
The rigs are large and powerful, balanced by similarly large and deep ballast keels to make a speedy and comfortable passagemaker. “Push-Button Sailing,” with controls for – headsail furlers, mainsail outhaul and furling, windlass, thruster – are all at the skipper’s fingertips at the helm makes it easy to handle the vessel as a couple. Strong hulls suitable for high latitude sailing keep you safe as you travel to the most remote locations.
While safety is the first item on the design brief, usability must be a close second. As you move around the vessel you see so many details that make daily life aboard easier - details that are just smart. The way the lines are truncated at the mast, the push button sailing, engine room layout and features, nav station, the more you look the more you find that make you realize they really thought this vessel out.
After usability comes comfort. This boat is large, and very comfortable. The cockpit is among the largest you’ll find in a center cockpit, with lots of room for guests for sundowners, or lots of room for a tired crew to stretch out on comfy cushions on a long passage. The dodger and bimini stretched across massive 1-1/2” stainless tubes offer great shelter from the sun and spray.
Downstairs the interior spaces very inviting. High quality seating – including the wonderful Hallberg-Rassy pair of armchairs – is designed as well as a Volvo drivers seat, and covered with plush cushions. In the salon, you first catch a glimpse of the stunning woodwork. HR interiors are always impressive with their layers of hand rubbed varnish. The woodwork is amazing - the joinery is nothing but perfect. The acres of woodwork on this boat, having been sun protected from new, looks just out of the factory.
The other thing immediately apparent is the storage. Sensible lockers, drawers and cubbies are everywhere. As well as the lockers, there are also cavernous bilges in which to store your more long term or heavier items.
In the bilges we find that the first owner loved to buy spare parts and tools. Aboard this vessel there are spares - usually multiple spares - for virtually everything. Pumps, hoses, clamps, filters, engine parts, locker catches, fasteners, blocks, clutches and everything from a screw to spare hydraulic backstay can be found already aboard.
The Nav station is fully equipped as well. To the right of the comfy seat is a huge 12v/24v switch panel with granular-level control for systems. Here are also the controls for fuel transfer pumps and diesel heating. Communications options include 2 sat phones, SSB, and VHF. A mini PC holds the software to control every aspect of the complete Mastervolt electrical system. A large 17” Garmin plotter echoes the 22” plotter in the cockpit, and the 9” in the main cabin.
The galley is impressively large, usable and safe. Huge countertop space and storage make it a very functional space. A day fridge, and large chest fridge and a large chest freezer keep piles of food cool for the longest journeys.
Moving aft, the master suite is huge and comfortable, a large bed plus wing sofas make this an oasis. The ensuite head is large and bright, with a big shower stall and quiet electric toilet.
In front of the salon are three cabins. On port there’s a double cabin with direct access to the large and bright forward head. To starboard, there’s a pair of pilot berths, a large single on top, and a double below. Forward is an anteroom, with access to the forward head to port, and the large Bosch laundry machine to starboard. The final space forward is a large and comfortable V berth with a huge overhead hatch, and ample storage and feature more of the beautiful woodwork.
The engine room under the companionway is a sailor’s dream mechanical space with room to stand up and walk around. All the systems are laid out for easy access. The boat includes redundant water pumps and accumulators, one for each tank. There’s a hand pump plumbed to the bottom of each of the three fuel tanks, so contamination can be pumped directly out of the tanks. Twinned Racors can be switched underway if one should get fouled and there’s a separate Racor for the huge whisper-quiet Mastervolt Genny. The engine is a Perkins Sabre 225 HP turbo diesel with approximately 2500 hours.
It’s impossible to list all the features of the boat here. I have been aboard this boat multiple times and each time I am as impressed as the time before. She is truly beautiful, but also immensely capable. The vessel can be trusted to get you there, no matter what.
Please have a look at the video for more information and commentary, then reach out and let’s talk about this impressive boat.
