Hallberg-Rassy 36 was built during 1989 - 2003. A total of 602 hulls were built. Boat No 1-256 from 1989-1994 were the Mark I, No 257-602 from 1994-2003 were the Mark 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. The under-water shape, keel, rudder and rig remained the same. About 23 of the first hulls were made without rubbing strake integrated in the hull. 


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.


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.


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.
