A WINNING CONCEPT DEVELOPED
The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is based on the same winning concept the predecessor Hallberg-Rassy 46 has, but with fifteen more years of Frers’ and Hallberg-Rassy’s experience incorporated. The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is an all-over new design, starting with a blank sheet of paper.
The hull is just 21 cm longer but offers more living space inside, thanks to better use of the hull length. The waterline is no less than 135 cm longer. The sailing performance is all over up to date. Hull, rig, rudder and keel profiles include Frers latest experience.
With larger side windows, the interior is brighter. These also give greater window area and a better outer view. The aft cabin is wider and more generous. The berths are wider and longer and it is now possible to order a centre line berth with a seat on each side and a make up table to starboard.
The interior design is softened up with panel locker doors with rounded corners and profile milled frames. The lockers are well ventilated with special grids on top.
The straight sofa in the saloon is 14 cm longer. The galley is 6 cm longer. There is 53 cm more hanging locker length.
The V cabin berth is longer and 15 cm lower, to make it easier to enter the bed. The cabin between the V cabin and the saloon is 7 cm longer and more airy.
The aft cabin hatch is elegantly flush mounted. The cockpit is longer. The cockpit coaming is higher, giving improved protection. There is better seating comfort in the cockpit, due to the ergonomic angle of the backrest. The blue stripe around the cockpit is gelcoat. The genoa sheet winches are fitted so that friction is minimised due to eliminated footblocks. The winch base is extended to give one a useful step for entering the cockpit. If electric winches are ordered, these will not disturb the headroom as on the Hallberg-Rassy 46.
