EXCEPTIONALLY WELL USED INTERIOR SPACE
469 units of the Hallberg-Rassy 26 were built from 1978 until 1985. 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."
