"THE DREAM YACHT WITHIN REACH"
A Hallberg-Rassy is by far the number one brand most sailors dream of. The Hallberg-Rassy 310 is the dream yacht within reach. This model was built from 2009 until 2024 in 132 units.

EASY TO HANDLE
The Hallberg-Rassy 310 is easy to sail with her contemporary hull lines and modern sailplan with only slightly overlapping genoajib or optional selftacker. A Code Zero or gennaker may be flown between the masthead and a removable bowsprit. An under-deck mounted genoajib furler Furlex TD is standard equipment.
Also a powerful backstay tensioner with 1:24 purchase is standard equipment. The top shrouds and the lower shrouds are separated to individual chainplates, to allow easy passage on deck and good sheeting of the genoajib. The cockpit is generous and over 2.35 m long. There is easy access to the boat when entering from the transom.
Hallberg-Rassy typical features such as the windscreen, integrated rubbing strake and a lead keel on a proper bilge come without saying.
BRIGHT AND ROOMY INTERIOR
The interior is bright and unusually roomy for her size. There are fourteen light inlets in total; there are four skylights, of which two are in the saloon. All nine portlights are opening and the same size as the Hallberg-Rassy 43 Mk II. The locker doors are flush and have invisible hinges.
The fact that the saloon is located relatively far aft in the boat means it gets sensationally long and wide for the boatsize. Both the L sofa and the straight settee are a full two meters long. The mast support is in direct conjunction with the main bulkhead and does not obstruct the saloon.
The seagoing galley does not interfere with the natural flow through the boat. Someone working in the galley does not obstruct the access to the aft cabin. There are deep double sinks and a fridge with a basket to organize small items. The countertop is solid Corian composite stone.
Both the aft and forward cabins are generous. The aft cabin has two opening portlights and a hanging locker. The berth is 206 cm long, 143 cm in the wide end and 100 cm at the footend. The forward cabin benefits from its own vanity and hanging locker.
The toilet compartment has excellent ventilation with opening portlight and skylight. The skylight is fitted with milk coloured glass to obscure view but allow light through. The countertop and sink are solid Corian composite stone.
TEAK TOE RAIL
The deck to hull joint is laminated together before the interior is built in and this gives an unbeatable torsional strength factor. The toerail has a teak capping and the rainwater is drained in hoses under the waterline to prevent streaks on the hullside. The sturdy mooring cleats are positioned on top of the toe rail.
RACING & SALES SUCCESS
Although the Hallberg-Rassy 310 is a true cruiser, she has showed her good sailing performance by winning her category in the World's largest inshore race, Tjörn Runt. She won among 68 boats. The Hallberg-Rassy 310 has instantly sold well to a wide range of countries on several continents.
QUOTES FROM YACHTING MONTHLY MAGAZINE
Yachting Monthly, March 2010 issue, in their 24 hour test of the Hallberg-Rassy 310 says:
Hallberg-Rassy is leading, not following
After 24 hours of barnstorming sailing in winds of up to 40 knots, finally the 310 behaves like a lady. She felt gloriously responsive, easily controlled and well weighted. Main and jib were easily managed, which is quite something in our test conditions. Finding the right balance was simple and we were able to make any tweaks from the cockpit.
The saloon is huge, with amazing light and ventilation. Two hatches and four large, opening sideports bathe the interior with light and air. There are thoughtful details like the small pressurized water reservoir so the pump doesn’t fire up at the slightest twitch of the tap.
She is a good looking boat. The sheerline sweeps gracefully up to the bow, improving volume below the foredeck and softening the look of the coachroof. Coamings and windscreens enclose the cockpit, creating a secure feeling and keeping you dry. Above the huge cockpit locker to starboard, there’s another simple idea we liked – the nav light switches are built into the coaming, beside the autopilot and engine controls. You don’t have to yell below to get them turned on. Had we needed to move forward, there’s an excellent handrail on the side screen, handrails running the length of the coachroof and deep, teak-capped toerails. We also liked the bronze scupper drains that empty any shipped water below the boot top to prevent streaky topsides. Moving forward, between the cap shrouds outboard and the genoa tracks and lower shrouds inboard, is simple and secure.
She’s quick, pretty and the space below is remarkable in a yacht of this size. Construction is up to the standards you would expect of Hallberg-Rassy
This is a hugely entertaining yacht – fast and fun, spirited but secure, comfortable and capacious, impeccably built and, because of the name, sure to hold her value.

BÅDNYT: "STROKE OF GENIUS"
Bådnyt, Denmark, writes in their test report:
“Hallberg-Rassy’s little stroke of genius. The Swedes have created a new boat which definitely will be among the very hottest news during 2010.
The main cabin seems gigantic, considering that we are onboard a 31 foot boat.
To our great surprise, the boat is exceptionally easily driven in the light winds of our testing day. The steering is exact and direct, and even in these light winds the boat reacts both quickly and in a surprisingly lively way.”
YACHT: "GREAT FUN"
“Well conceived and engineered concept, excellent quality of build, high longevity and - in addition - great fun!”
SEILMAGASINET: "A JEWEL"
Seilmagasinet, Norway, testing the Hallberg-Rassy 310:
“You cannot avoid being impressed by Hallberg-Rassy. The new 31 footer from the yard is just as lavishly built with the same excellent finish as their flagship, the 62. As a rule, the boatyards put less attention to details and solutions in the smaller boat models. This is a result from the market in this segment usually asking for a low price. Not so the Hallberg-Rassy yard.
Instead, this new model features all the style and finish that normally is found in their bigger models, making the 310 a “small jewel” of a boat. And jewels, as we know, do cost... To build a 31 footer in this way is brave. Just brave. This is great to see.
And great to sail it is too, evidently, since it won its class in the Tjörn Runt regatta.
A very welcoming atmosphere meets you below decks, and even if much woodwork has been used in the interior, the impression is one of light and air. Like on the bigger models, there are two skylights in the superstructure above the main cabin, and large windows on the sides of the superstructure. You also get a feeling of good volume below deck, and this has been achieved by a stroke of genius: the galley has been placed in an angle below the cockpit. This provides a large galley with lots of stowage room, without giving the feeling of cramped quarters below the cockpit well. Bearing the sharp bow in mind, it is also surprising to find how successfully the fore cabin has turned out.
The Hallberg-Rassy 310 has its price tag, but we dare say that few, if any 31-footer is that lavishly and well built out as this yacht.”
BÅTNYTT: "A REAL GOODIE"
Båtnytt, Sweden, in their test report:
“The boat has very good sailing performance; she is fun to sail in light winds, and is fast and reliable in a fresh breeze. I came ashore with a smile on my face!
The 310 is a model of stiffness and with a good “bite” upwind, the rudder has a good grip, and she cuts through the waves with minimum drift. In addition, she is gratifyingly fast.
The main cabin makes every true sailor happy. It is large, light, beautiful and inviting. The table is the same size as in the Hallberg-Rassy 372, the berths are 2 meters long, the mast support is located at the bulkhead and the headroom is excellent 1.86 m. The reason why the main cabin feels extra roomy is because the galley has been placed to starboard with the sink facing aft. This design makes the whole interior layout work splendidly for a boat of 9.5 m. The fact that the toilet cabin is located forward adds to the impression of volume onboard.
The discerning customer who is looking for real value for his money, and who can pay the price, will get a complete yacht. A real goodie."
