If you are looking for a "ready to go" sailing yacht of high quality which is in excellent condition, then this Hallberg-Rassy 46 is definitely worth a visit!
The Hallberg-Rassy 46 which we are allowed to offer was purchased by the first owner in 1999 and was first launched in 2000.
The first and current owners have maintained her carefully and lovingly and this is evident from the overall condition, there are no or hardly any user traces present.
Because of the short swimming platform we can easily get on board, on the aft deck there are 2 storage compartments and on the sternpulpits a seat placed. This is a wonderful place to enjoy the view under sail or at anchor.
The cockpit is sheltered behind the fixed sprayhood. Here you have everything within reach. If you still have your hands full, turn on the Raymarine Autopilot at the push of a button. The Raymarine C120 chartplotter uses AIS to keep a close eye on your surroundings. The gangways are wide and free of obstacles as you go to the foredeck, here is the deep anchor locker with electric Lofrans windlass.
Through the wide entree to the saloon you will find the U-shaped galley to starboard with top loading cooler, 3-burner cardanic stove with oven and microwave. During rougher seas there is enough support here to prepare a meal. On port side is the spacious navigation table with several storage compartments and built-in equipment, through the on-board computer you are connected to the navigation equipment. Behind the navigation seat you find a second toploader coolbox.
The L-shaped sofa and spacious table is a cozy sitting area, on the starboard side are 2 armchairs which, thanks to the built-in LED strips, give the perfect seat for reading a good book or preparing for a new trip with the REEDS Almanac.
After the main bulkhead you will find a bunk bed on port side which is ideal for adults or children, opposite is a separate wet room with toilet and shower, here is also a built-in washing machine(2006). In the bow is a double V-bed with Neptune mattresses (2006) and slatted base, under the bed is plenty of storage space and there is also the Sidepower bow thruster with new saildrive (2020).
In the stern is the "owners cabin" here is extra closet space, a comfortable double bed with again slatted base, Neptune mattress aswell an ergonomic topper. The "Owners cabin" has its own shower with heads.
"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. We quote from Yacht, March 1996, Test-headline about the Hallberg-Rassy 46: "Ein Schiff mit dem Zeug zum Klassiker" (A yacht with the genes to become a classic). Yachting World, England, March 1996: "...The armchairs must be about the most comfortable seats I have encountered on a yacht; after a longish day at the Boat Show it took some time to pry me away...Taking everything into consideration the Hallberg-Rassy 46 got my vote as the boat best-designed and equipped to sail long distances comfortably."
Yachting World, April 1996: "Swedish builders Hallberg-Rassy have a global reputation when it comes to setting standards for blue water cruising.....Apart from their good manners under sail and power, much of the yachts' reputation is based on the solid build and high quality standard specification - considered by many to be the cruising icon".
