The Hallberg-Rassy 412 has won the honourable title Sailboat of the Year in Sweden, Luxury category. The jury concludes about the 412: "Creative renewal within the luxury yacht concept".
Out of 30 new models on the market, both Swedish and foreign, there were nine boats nominated in three different categories. All nominated boats have been tested and evaluated by a jury of sailors and experts. The deciding criteria have been sailing performance, design, innovation, interior, build quality, finish and value for money.
The jury also said the following about the Hallberg-Rassy 412:
”This is the largest aft cockpit boat from Hallberg-Rassy and also the fastest and most technically sophisticated. She is stretched to offer a lot. She has sailing characteristics close to a performance racer. This is a completely new level for premium long distance cruisers. Newest is the Docking Assistant System, developed Push Button Sailing and the Multi Function Display in the pedestal that makes this boat impressive when it comes to innovation.”
