The Hallberg-Rassy 43 Mark III was built from 2013 until 2016. She follows the success of the 64, 55 and 48 Mk II with more natural light, more elegance and further improved interior comfort. An already good boat got even better. All in all 199 units Hallberg-Rassy 43 were built since 2001: Mk IMk II and this Mk III version.



There are 27 improvements compared to the 43 Mk II:


  • New saloon portlights; larger, frameless, tempered glass, like on the 48 Mk II, 55 and 64, give more natural light
  • 4 hull portlights; two in the saloon and two in the aft cabin, give eye-contact to the world outside while seated in the saloon
  • New low profile ventilators with built in ping pong balls like on the 412, 48 Mk II and 55
  • New more elegant design of the windshield with rounded top on the side panels, similar to the 412, 48 Mk II and 55
  • New more elegant design of the pushpit and pulpit, similar to the 412 and 55
  • Larger forward anchor locker
  • Improved aft deck lockers as on the 48 Mk II, 55 and 64, which means improved watertightness
  • Possibility for FatFurl furling mainsail, with headboard and good roach
  • Possibility to install retractable bow and stern thrusters, with docking function, which makes it possible to push the boat to the dock, even if the wind is blowing from the shoreline, without the need to stand at the helm position
  • Possibility to get the genoa sheet winches as REVO, which means also reversible function
  • Deeper cockpit floor under the grating for greater drainage capacity without compromising the easy access to the cabin


  • V cabin 5 cm longer berths, lower, located slightly more aft in the boat. Because of that, the width of the berths is kept the same
  • Forward toilet compartment from the Hallberg-Rassy 412
  • L shaped port side sofa in the saloon 8 cm longer
  • Starboard saloon sofa 1 cm longer
  • Space between entrance stair to saloon table increased
  • Saloon alcoves with white painted wooden panels and hull portlights like 412, 48 Mk II, 55 and 64
  • Possibility for good size retractable 32 inch TV on port side of the saloon
  • Possibility for retractable washboard for the entrance
  • Possibility for real centre line berth in aft cabin, sofa to port, make-up table to starboard
  • When centre line berth is ordered, the aft deck lockers are deeper and narrower than with the standard arrangement, to allow for full height in the aft cabin to sleep with your feet at the forward end
  • When standard aft cabin layout with two individual berths are ordered, then the aft deck storage has the same shape as on the 43 Mk II
  • Bookshelfs in v cabin and aft cabin as on the Hallberg-Rassy 55, which means more open arrangement and white wooden lining inside the alcoves

The new Hallberg-Rassy 43 Mk III is tradition and fresh ideas in a tasteful blend.
