31 MK I


The Hallberg-Rassy 31 was built 18 years (!) from 1992 - 2009 in 356 units. That is one of the longest production runs in Hallberg-Rassy's history. From number 307, the boat was modified to the Hallberg-Rassy 31 Mark II version, see further info here. The Hallberg-Rassy 31 is a true Hallberg-Rassy, with the same high level of quality and elegance as her larger sisters.



The interior woodwork and joinery is done in the selected mahogany that has become a Hallberg-Rassy trademark. The interior is extremely well laid out for her size. A full size navigation table, a spacious galley, saloon, large head and shower compartment, and two private staterooms gives you the volume and space that you would normally find on a much larger boat.


The cockpit is comfortable and easily accommodates your guest, and has generous capabilities.


Designed by Germán Frers, the Hallberg-Rassy 31 has excellent sailing characteristics. The boat is well balanced, and gently moves through the water, pointing and going to weather like no other 31 foot performance cruiser of her time. She is easily single handed, as all lines are lead aft to the cockpit.


"Sailing with safety and comfort at a good speed are the main characteristics offered by the Hallberg-Rassy 31. This medium displacement modern hull is fitted with efficient keel, rudder and a modern comprehensive fractional rig. The result is a boat, which can cope with all weather conditions safely, and will also give the owner and his family many hours of pleasant sailing.

The interior is exceptionally well laid out giving an air of spaciousness unusual for a boat of this size. There are two separate double cabins, one forward and one aft, also a large toilet aft. With a full size saloon, ample galley and complete chart table, it offers the amenities and comfort of a larger yacht. There is excellent protection from the weather in the aft cockpit. The seats are two metres long. Part of the starboard seat lifts up to give access to a very generous stowage area.

For a yachtsman not interested in the latest racing gimmicks but in a proper 9.5 metre boat with a more than respectable speed, with good cruising attributes, the Hallberg-Rassy 31 will be very hard to beat."

Germán Frers


Quote from the Swedish yachting magazine Båtnytt:
"Extremely spacious, light and inviting interior. The sailing and sea-going qualities are in a class of its own. Being a cruiser, the speed through water and the angle towards the wind is quite amazing. A modern, safe cruiser that gives its owner great satisfaction."
