The Hallberg-Rassy 26 was built from 1978 until 1985. A total of 469 hulls were built. In 1978 the Hallberg-Rassy 26 received the honourable "Golden Steering Wheel" award in the Swedish yachting magazine Båtnytt. We quote: "The Golden Steering wheel goes to Hallberg-Rassy - for the capability to achieve wonderful quality at a reasonable price in their new Hallberg-Rassy 26. This award goes to the executive of the yard, Christoph Rassy, and the designer Olle Enderlein for their determination to create a boat dedicated to family use. Our opinion is that this boat is built to an exceptional standard. The living space onboard is well used with for example four full length berths, a good galley and much more."

Ingela and Jan Franke sailed their Hallberg-Rassy 26 "WindSong" around the world for six years.

Jan says that this trip has been a dream come true. The book is written by Jan in Swedish and the title is "Stigfinnaren" (the pathfinder)


From the magazine Praktiskt Båtägande:

"A boat that coops with a lot. Much boat for your money. A boat to feel safe in."

Yachting Monthly from the UK write: "As one might expect from a Hallberg-Rassy, she is well balanced and has excellent directional stability."
