SMALL ENOUGH, YET BIG ENOUGH TO GO ANYWHERE, ANY TIME
Hallberg-Rassy 36 was built from 1989 until 2003 in a total of 602 hulls. Boat No 1-256 from 1989-1994 were the Mark I, No 257-602 from 1994-2003 were the Mark II. Mark II has a developed transom with integrated bathing platform. The Mark II is 30 cm wider at the transom compared to Mk I. At the same time the aft deck locker was improved from a higher level than the deck on Mark I to flush on the Mk II. The walk deck also got wider, as well as the superstructure of the aft cabin. Inside this has given the newer Mk II model more room, more lockers and wider berths in the aft cabin. Although the hull length was increased with 44 cm (1' 5'') on the Mk II, the maximum sailing waterline was increased by no less than 67 cm (2' 3''). Waterline at rest remained the same as well as the deck length. Mast, keel, rudder and underwater shape as well as engine configuration also remained the same between Mk I and Mk II.
Hallberg-Rassy 36 Mk I doesn't have a retroussé transom with integrated swim platform and the developed shape like the Mk II has. The Mk I has a more narrow transom above the waterline and more narrrow superstructure and walkdecks aft than the Mk II. Amidships and forward, the boats remained the same. The wide blue brim in the hull is 5 cm wider on the Mk I. About 23 of the first hulls of Mk I were made without rubbing strake integrated in the hull.
COMFORT AND NICE LINES
The 36 is a mid-range model. Small enough, yet big enough to go anywhere, any time. Designed and constructed by yachtsmen to combine the latest in technology and traditional standards, it provides comfort and nice lines as you expect from a Hallberg-Rassy.
WELL ARRANGED INTERIOR LAYOUT
The layout is very well laid out and allows for excellent comfort and unimpeded passage from one end of the boat to the other. The sturdy mast support comes together with the main bulkhead and not through the table or sofa. There is a big chart table in the boat's heading direction where you can sit comfortably.
CATEGORY WINNER IN THE ARC
She has surprising performance for her type, the result of very thorough work of the hull parameters and shape by her designer, Germán Frers. The moderate V sections result in a pleasant motion at sea normally found in larger yachts. She has won her class in the ARC over the Atlantic as well as local races.
