FROM THE HARRY HALLBERG ERA
The Mistress 32 was developed at the Harry Hallberg era. The boat is the most racing oriented model ever built by the yard. Despite a nice interior, this was a really fast boat. She was a successful IOR half tonner. Boat number 1 was called "Hambo" and did well in the Half Ton Cup 1968 and won both the Baltic Race and the Skaw Race. However, the year after, 1969, another half tonner by another boat yard, Scampi, was launched, and bet everything else on the race course. Within racing, it is not enough to be number two.
