The Hallberg-Rassy 340 has an upright bow for contemporary appearance, long waterline and fine sea worthiness with a rounded underwater body. The boat has an elegant integrated bowsprit with many features:
- An ideal position to connect the tack of a code zero or a gennaker.
- An ideal position for carrying an anchor, with a safe distance to the hull, controlled by an optional electric windlass
- Ideal for a bow ladder that will make it easy to enter or depart from the boat in natural harbours or low docks.
