The deck locker space is enormous on the Hallberg-Rassy 57. There is a huge deck locker cabin in front of the v cabin, an anchor locker with further space in front of that, a cockpit locker, a big aft deck locker and two further side aft deck lockers. All in all there is a huge 10 000 liters deck storage available.


The deck is clean and uncluttered. Forward of the mast the deck is flush. All deck hatches are flush mounted. There is a sun deck integrated into the aft cabin roof. The anchor winch is hidden below deck level. The jib furler is located under deck. Because of a design trick, there is no need for any garage for the sliding hatch. Instead, the curvature of the outer coach roof and the inner ceiling are different, allowing enough space for the sliding hatch to disappear. There are in total eight sturdy mooring cleats on the top of the teak toe rail, of which the spring cleats are double on each side. There is an option for a retractable gangway that folds into the big aft locker.


There is a large door and a walk-in engine room. It is carefully sound insulated and perforated aluminium plates cover the insulation. In here the technical equipment is found: low RPM Volvo Penta D4-175, 175 HP main engine, a 17.5 kW low RPM generator with soundshield, heater, pumps, filters, pressure equalizer for the fresh water system, AquaDrive flexible coupling for the engine shaft and a high pressure pump for the watermaker, just to mention a few. Everything easy to maintain, all well sound insulated. The engine room lighting is 24 v, and there is also an optional 230 v fluorescent light, with power supply from either the shore connection or the inverter.


As tradition says, the cockpit of a Hallberg-Rassy is very well sheltered. The cockpit length is a generous 2.90 m. For the first time on a center cockpit Hallberg-Rassy, the boat is built with twin wheels. The design gives an easy passage through the cockpit and the possibility for a big and sturdy fixed cockpit table. The width and the volume of the boat makes it possible. The pedestal heads each have enough space for a good size modern chart plotter. The deep cockpit gives excellent protection. The helmsman position is slightly elevated, to offer both excellent view for the helmsman and good headroom below in the aft cabin and aft head.


The rudder arrangement, like the successful Hallberg-Rassy 44 and 340, has twin rudder blades. This provides an easily controlled boat during all sailing conditions, especially in rough weather. Each rudder has dual self-adjusting rudder bearings that provide an easy to steer rudder construction in all conditions. Because of the reduced rudder surface, compared to a single rudder solution, the rudder loads will also decrease which will increase the safety factor.


The huge bathing platform folds out at the push of a button. When closed, this gives a clean and good looking transom. This arrangement also allows for more deck locker space than with a traditional built in bathing platform.


There is an integral bowsprit that is laminated as part of the hull and deck, not put on afterwards. The design is so beautiful that it could almost be called art. The bowsprit also serves several practical purposes:

  • Ideal and efficient tack point for a light wind sail
  • Ideal for carrying an anchor for the electric windlass
  • Ideal for a bow ladder, making it easy to get onboard the bow from a low dock


The sail plan is modern. No runners are needed, not even with an inner heavy weather jib. The head sail furler is an push button operated under-deck fitted Furlex TD. Cap shrouds and lowers are divided with separated chainplates. That gives easy passage on deck, a good set up for sheeting the head sail and to create a wide steady support for the mast. A powerful hydraulic backstay tensioner comes as standard. The head sail has a small overlap which makes it easy to tack. There is even a possibility to get a self-tacking arrangement. She is a real mile eater. According to Frers speed diagram, a loaded Hallberg-Rassy 57 will log 8.75 knots in a 90 degree true wind angle with only 10 knots true wind.


The whole yacht is set up for effortless sailing. We call it PushButtonSailing. There are means to handle this big yacht with minimum crew, such as hydraulic in-mast furling, optional hydraulic main outhaul, powered jib furler, powered winches, hydraulic backstay tensioner, optional hydraulic push button adjustment of the main and jib halyards, bow thruster, optional stern thruster with docking function, push button operated bathing platform and an optional retractable gangway.


The all-lead keel has a heavy bulb with low centre of gravity and weighs 9.9 tons. The keel is bolted onto a deep bilge, for strength and comfort. The hull has an integral rubrail.


The interior offers a spacious accommodation. The forward cabin and the starboard cabin are very big for the yacht size with lots of storage, elbow space and big generous bed sizes. The v cabin is so comfortable that it is big enough as a second owner’s cabin. It goes without saying that the whole interior is bright and inviting. The whole interior has a one level sole area, comfortable and safe both out at sea and in a marina. There is a dedicated wet locker directly in the entrance area. The aft cabin is wide, airy and with a comfort worthy a king. The seagoing galley has huge work top areas and allows for a Miele induction stove, a dishwasher, a micro wave oven and a second deep freezer. The interior joineries are offered in traditional mahogany, in bright European oak, or in teak. All in finished in clear varnish with horizontal grain.


The Hallberg-Rassy 57 has been nominated to the honourable title European Yacht of the Year 2019 in the category "Luxury cruiser". That means that the Hallberg-Rassy 57 has been ranked as one of the most interesting and promising newcomers of its class. The nominees for European Yacht of the Year award are selected by journalists from twelve leading European yachting magazines. Nominated yachts need to be thoroughly tested and evaluated in a lot of different criterias.

The French yachting magazine Voiles et Voiliers has made a 3.05 minutes video, both from the exterior and interior, of the Hallberg-Rassy 57.

Close to perfection. With the new Hallberg-Rassy 57, the yard exceeds its own popular concept and take yachting connoisseurs to the next level. The sailing performance is superb, the best so far in a Hallberg-Rassy.

With no doubt the Hallberg-Rassy 57 is a dream yacht. Those who can afford it, will get a yacht to live a good life onboard this spacious and incredibly comfortable cruiser, probably the very most interesting bluewater cruiser on the world market today.

The 57 is arguably the best-looking Hallberg-Rassy to date. Seen afloat, its long Frers lines are bewitching. Look closer and you’ll notice how the Rassy hallmarks, such as fixed windscreen and blue stripes, meld with a modern, powerful hull shape that features a wide transom, straight stem and twin rudders. The resultant sailing qualities are superb, particularly for a centre cockpit design. It’s the type of boat that you just want to keep sailing offshore. Having cleared the rocky islets off Orust and made it into open water, sailing at 8-8.5 knots upwind in a Force 4, I just wanted to carry on heading to Denmark (despite knowing a front was approaching). Twin wheels help provide better views forward as well as access through the deep, long, protected cockpit. Down below is a spacious oak (or mahogany) interior on one level, with plenty of natural light – which is appreciated particularly in the saloon and sumptuous aft cabin. The HR 57 is all about easy, elegant push-button sailing at high average speeds – it’s proper luxury, both in the cockpit and down below.
