A MORE PERFECTED 38-FOOTER

Totally 120 hulls of the Hallberg-Rassy 382 were built from 1984 until 1992. The difference between the HR 38 and the HR 382 is definitely more than one might think at first sight. The HR 382 is a completely new, more modern design. The hull lines are all-new, more contemporary, incorporating eight years more experience. The hull of the 382 is longer, wider, has a sharper entry, a flatter aft section, deeper, shorter and more efficient keel, as well as more efficient rudder design. The 382 also has an encapsulated lead keel, whilst the 38 has an encapsulated iron keel. Lead gives a lower centre of gravity and a slimmer, more efficient keel, and thus the boat can carry more sail area and generate better speed as well as less heel which means a closer angle towards wind.

IMPROVED PERFORMANCE WITH GREATER SAIL AREA AND MORE EFFICIENT HULL

The sail area is bigger on the 382, that has a double spreader rig. The HR 38 has a single spreader rig. The hull of the 382 is insulated with Divinycell foam core as on the current range of Hallberg-Rassys. The HR 38 has stringers and no insulation in the hull.

REFINED INTERIOR

The well working principal of the interior layout is the same, but the 382 has a more seagoing F-shaped galley and has even finer joinery works with its louvered doors, elegantly rounded edge of the saloon table and more lavishly fitted out upholstery.

All in all, the 382 is a more perfected 38.
