BLUWATER CRUISER WITH GLOBAL REPUTATION

The Hallberg-Rassy 46 was built in 132 units between 1995 and 2005. Production numbers were shared between the HR 45 and the HR 46, although there were different moulds. Hull numbers 1-69 plus Number 83 are Hallberg-Rassy 45s, and 70-202, except No 83, were Hallberg-Rassy 46s.

EASY SHORTHANDED SAILING

Short-handed sailing is easy in this attractive Frers-designed cruiser. She is both a fairly good performer and seakindly. It is a boat made to go around the world or cruise local waters.

YACHT OF THE YEAR

When she was introduced, the Hallberg-Rassy 46 won the Yacht of the Year award in the biggest category in the respected German magazine Yacht.

ARC CATEGORY WINNER 2019

British Hallberg-Rassy 46 "Kathryn Del Fuego" won her category in the ARC 2019, coming first in class, first family yacht (children aged 6 and 8 on board), and 5th overall out of 122 yachts! The crew reports: More importantly she suffered no structural, mechanical nor electrical failures on the crossing. Not even any chaffing of the running rigging or sheets. In winds regularly Force 7-8 we sailed along easily with well a balanced rig. This gives me great confidence as we continue to Panama and beyond. Thank you for producing such a well designed and built yacht. Thank you, Russell, Kate, Hugo and Felix Hall.
