1990 the almost revolutionary Hallberg-Rassy 34 was launched. The concept was a new Frers designed model with greatly improved performance compared to earlier production Hallberg-Rassys and a look that can be described so contradictory as younger, yet classic at the same time. This should be done without sacrificing all the good old Hallberg-Rassy qualities such as sturdiness, seaworthiness, comfort, safety, and fine wood-work. This concept came reality in every aspect and the 34 came to be a commercial success and a forerunner for a whole new generation Hallberg-Rassys. 484 units were built during the sixteen years the boat was in production 1990 - 2005.
