802 hulls of the Hallberg-Rassy 352 were built between 1978 -1991.

The 352 is a very sought after model on the second hand boat market. She features a comfortable interior with walk through to the aft cabin under deck, a big engine, combined with pleasant sailing qualities and nice lines.

Small modifications have been made during the 14 years the boat was in production:

  • In 1980 the hull was raised a couple of centimetres allowing more headroom in the walk through and in the aft cabin.

  • From the beginning the Hallberg-Rassy 352 had the Volvo Penta MD 21 but production of this engine discontinued in late 1984 and was replaced by the Volvo Penta 2003 Turbo.

  • 1984-85 the galley working area was improved, as well as the entrance ladder and the cockpit locker drain. The spring cleats were moved up to the top of the teak toe rail.

  • Around 1986 the skylight in the saloon was increased in size to give more natural light into the saloon. The locker doors of the saloon became louvered as on the larger Hallberg-Rassy sisters. Again the hull was raised, but only some cm, in order to get even better volume and headroom under deck.

A few boats were built with the bigger MD 22 engine, which was an option.

The boat was built with a standard and a tall rig. In the beginning only standard rigs were sold and in the end almost only tall rigs. The tall rig is easily recognised on the double spreaders and the standard one on the single spreader rig. Boats with in mast furling automatically became the tall rig.

When the Hallberg-Rassy 352 was presented in 1978 it was described as "A boat with future" which indeed is valid still today. The Hallberg-Rassy yachts in general and the 352 in particular will give its owner much pleasure and the yacht will be very sought after the day you like to sell her as well.
