Hallberg-Rassy 40C vinner pris som Årets Båt 2024 i USA

06 dec. 2023

Hallberg-Rassy 40C har vunnit Boat of the Year Award 2024 inom Best Midsize Cruiser i tidningen Cruising World från USA.

Detta årliga pris erkänner och hedrar de bästa och nyaste segelbåtsmodellerna som introducerats på den nordamerikanska marknaden. Juryn bestående av tidningens redaktörer har granskat alla nominerade båtar i detalj, både seglandes, exteriört, interiört och i varje detalj.

Juryn: "About the 40C, judge Tim Murphy got straight to the point: “Arguably, this was the best-built monohull in the fleet. Systems-wise—with the electrical labeling, analog breakers, engine layout and access, sound insulation, the doubled Racor filters—it was definitely best in show. She sailed over to the United States on her bottom, some 10,000 nautical miles, and looked fresh from the showroom. The 40C has the same-size cockpit as the Hallberg-Rassy 44, which is a pretty neat trick. It has a longer waterline and more volume than the company’s 10-year-old 40-footer that it replaced. And more volume equals more-powerful sailing. I jotted down this note after our test sail: ‘Steering is absolutely divine.’ What else is there to say?”
