Broker's Comments

There were 255 boats of this model built by Hallberg Rassy between 1980 and 1991. Because of their reputation for off shore travel they have become much sought after in the used boat market. A quality builder, center cockpit, flush deck, high freeboard, fixed windscreen, and a thoughtful interior layout all contribute to today's popularity. During this seller's tenure he has replaced the engine, replaced the sails with recent Schattauer sails and upgraded the electronics to mention just a few of his improvements. A viewing of this boat will show a quality vessel that represents a good value.
