YACHT OF THE YEAR
The Hallberg-Rassy 62 won the "Yacht of the year" award in Germany in the largest class, over 50 ft. At the same time, the Hallberg-Rassy 62 was voted the most popular model of all categories, over all. No other boat got over a third of all votes, as did the Hallberg-Rassy 62. The award is voted by 40,000 of the readers of the most respected German magazine, Yacht.
IMPORT CRUISING BOAT OF THE YEAR 2006 IN THE USA
Also, the Hallberg-Rassy 62 is presented as "Import Cruising Boat of the Year 2006" in the January 2006 issue of Cruising World magazine from the USA.
Characteristic for Hallberg-Rassy layouts are that they are all logical, well arranged and work for long periods on board either at sea or in the harbour. The floor in the 62 is the same level throughout the boat. This contributes to easy access to all cabins. The Hallberg-Rassy 62 has a very light and airy saloon with big opening side windows as well as opening skylights. The displacement of the yacht is designed not only to give the generous stowage you need for long voyages, but also space for all modern comfort equipment. Access to technical equipment is made easy for service. The yacht has generous tank capacity to undertake serious cruising.
A POWERFUL ENGINE
A powerful engine is an important part of a long distance cruiser. It runs at cruising speed (8.2 knots) at a low 1,300 RPM. Furthermore, a two geared three bladed folding propeller with overdrive provides maximum performance under power, an important point which cannot be emphasised enough for extended voyages.
PUSH BUTTON SAILING
Despite the fact that the boat is built as a top-of-the-range yacht, she can virtually be sailed single handed. Push buttons located at the steering pedestal allow you to raise and lower the anchor, or set and sheet the sails. "Push button sailing" is no longer just a symbolic expression, it is reality already in the standard version.
