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).
THE LATEST SKILLS FROM FRERS AND HALLBERG-RASSY
The Hallberg-Rassy 42F is a contemporary cruising yacht which embodies the builder's expertise with the 1991 design skills of Germán Frers. The end result being a superb cruising yacht with sparkling performance which is a pleasure to sail and will give pride of ownership indefinitely.
The hull was designed for its seaworthiness and to give good sailing, it was not built to a formula or to maximise racing rules. The deck is laid for correct functioning rather than appearance, the fact that it looks so good is a bonus. With regard to equipment you will see typical Hallberg-Rassy solutions plus some innovations which represent real improvements.
