202 UNITS FROM 1977 - 1986

202 units of the Hallberg-Rassy 38 were built during 1977 - 1986. She was the very first Hallbeg-Rassy with the blue stripe around the hull. That came to be one of many iconic Hallberg-Rassy features. Hallberg-Rassy 38 is built for pleasant sailing and a comfortable life on board. This thoroughbred cruiser design is a well built yacht for the recreation of your family and friends.


The interior is well laid out. She has got the volume and displacement to carry everything a fair sized crew needs to bring for long passages at sea, including plenty of stowage for stores and personal belongings, plus a large water capacity.


The high freeboard and low superstructure design gives you good volume below and a large deck. Olle Enderlein has designed a fine yacht, perfectly balanced under all conditions. With a long keel and separate skeg and rudder, he has combined the traditional long keel and the modern fin keel types. The hull is in solid fiberglass.


The Hallberg-Rassy 38 is built at a yard dedicated to building high quality cruising sailboats. She is built by men and women with generations of boat building in their blood and who have long lived with the sea an the Swedish west coast. All the boats are a masterpiece in mahogany and teak. The finish is the trademark of traditional craftsmanship.
