From 1991 until 2001 the Hallberg-Rassy 42F was built in totally 181 units. From 1990 until 1994 the Hallberg-Rassy 42F Mk I was built in 53 units without the swim platform and without the developed transom as on the Mk II. From 1994 until 2001 the improved Hallberg-Rassy 42F Mk II was built in 128 units. Apart from the transom, the rest of the hull, sailplan and engine remained the same between the Mk I and Mk II. 53 units were built of the Mk I version: construction numbers 1-52 plus number 55. This Frers designed 42F is not to be confused with the Enderlein designed 42 (E).
ONE LEVEL SOLE MEANS NO TRIPPING
The Hallberg-Rassy 42F interior sole is in one level throughout the yacht. That means no tripping and easy movement onboard, both when sailing and while at anchor or in a marina.
Two heads and two sleeping cabins offer privacy and comfort. The center cockpit is well sheltered with good brace and everything within easy reach.
The Swedish Yachting Magazine På Kryss & Till Rors, says:See the complete test report here
"Exquisite finish and every detail is well thought out. This boat elicits your confidence from the pervading grid structure at floor level, the lamination of hull and deck, rig, how the keel and rudder is secured to the least little detail on deck as well as inside. Behind each Hallberg-Rassy boat stands a craftsman, who personally tests every piece of equipment on extended trial-cruises, before taken in to production. Such attention to detail is unusual in boat building, but it shows. We keep looking but there is nothing to criticize......Our conclusion is, that designer Germán Frers' entry to Ellös has resulted in boats that combines the best from two different worlds. The irreplaceable feeling of fine craftsmanship, the unbeatable living standard aboard is still there, as well as the secure feeling of a full-keeled boat with excellent sea-going qualities, especially in rough weather. We have found a whole new idea of cruising yachts realized in this boat....The Hallberg-Rassy 42F makes you feel safe and secure. You may feel like sailing anywhere, anytime, in any weather."
