ALL-WOOD OR ALL-GRP
The first two Rasmus were built entirely of mahogany and took one year each to construct. From hull number 3 both the hull and the superstructure were made of GRP.
The Rasmus 35 was designed by the leading Swedish designer of elegant yachts of the 1960s, Olle Enderlein. 760 boats were made during twelve years between 1967 and 1978. The name "Rasmus" is the God of Winds in Germany. The design of the Rasmus 35 was in many ways ahead of its time. It was the first sailing yacht in the world with a windscreen. That made her centre cockpit very well protected, keeping with elegant lines. This is the blueprint for the Hallberg-Rassy concept.
The Rasmus has been awarded its own association. The name is "Rasmusklubben" (The Rasmus Club) and already has many members. The club organises meetings both at sea in the summer and onshore in the wintertime to encourage interchange of hints and experiences. For more information please visit: www.rasmus35.se
