The Hallberg-Rassy 29 was built from 1982 until 1994. A total of 571 boats were built. The HR 29 was offered with or without quarter berth. The version without quarter berth has an additional cockpit locker. She is a timeless and beautiful boat that will always have her admirers.


Quoting a letter received from a happy Hallberg-Rassy 29 owner:

In praise of my Hallberg-Rassy 29

I bought my Hallberg-Rassy 29 from you in June 1991 since when I have had a very great deal of enjoyable sailing with my boat around Sweden, Denmark, Norway, northern France and UK. She performed well in all conditions and I would like you to know that on Monday of this week she was put to the test in rough conditions when wind strength reached 9 Beaufort on my passage from Dorset to Hamble. Our press reported that on that afternoon 25 boats participating in Cowes' week events were dismasted in the Solent but the Hallberg-Rassy 29 (who was not racing) dealt well with those conditions and she proved once again to be extremely sturdy. There are a number of positive features about the Hallberg-Rassy 29 but I just thought that you might be interested in this last experience.


Yachting Monthly, September issue 2015, write in their used boat test of the Hallberg-Rassy 29:

A true pocket ocean cruiser

Year after year in Yachting Monthly’s readership survey, Hallberg-Rassy is the name that many of you aspire to own, for good reason too.

She exudes a feeling of warmth and quality that makes her downright cosy at anchor.

The Hallberg-Rassy 29 is an ideal yacht for a couple wanting to cruise reasonable distances in comfort and safety. She’s a beautiful boat with classic lines on the outside and warm, perfectly-crafted joinery below decks, and I for one would be extremely proud to show her off to my friends.
