Accommodations

Down wide companionway steps, one has the feeling that they are aboard a true blue water cruiser. Beautifully finished in teak, her spacious and comfortable interior emits the level of quality craftsmanship that Hallberg-Rassy is famous for. Her well conceived three cabin layout will comfortably accommodate six in the forward stateroom, bunk room and aft master cabin. The main salon with dinette and table to starboard and straight settee to port is an extraordinary space to relax with guests at anchor, yet practically designed for comfort offshore. The interior is tastefully upholstered in medium beige colored-Alcantara ultrasuede with blue piping and beige curtains. There are shades on all ports and hatches. Storage spaces throughout the cabins, galley and main salon have been very well executed. Huge storage areas below the cabin sole are accessed through panels which positively lock closed (custom on this boat). Well placed handholds throughout the boat make for easy movement in rough weather.

Forward stateroom with V-berth. Surrounding the V-berth along the hull side, ample storage is available in five lockers. Additional storage is available below the berth. There is a large hanging locker to port and two lockers to starboard just aft of the berth. A mirror is hung on the starboard bulkhead.

Forward head compartment- At the forward end of the compartment is the aft facing Jabsco electric head. A mirror is mounted above on the forward bulkhead. Outboard along the hull side, the counter with sink and single lever faucet runs the length of the space. Storage is available in two lockers below the counter and three lockers with shelves above and outboard. A teak grate covers the floor. Aft is the separate shower stall with articulating shower head on a vertical track. The washing machine is located outboard.

Starboard cabin- Two bunks outboard along the hull side provide excellent sea berths. Three lockers outboard of the top bunk and a large hanging locker at the aft end of the cabin are available for storage. Reading lamps are located over each berth and natural light and ventilation are provided by two opening ports and an opening hatch.

Main salon- To port, the straight settee provides a comfortable sea berth. Outboard, there are four lockers along the hull side and storage space for spares and supplies is available behind the settee seat backs. Across the salon to starboard is a long L-shape settee that surrounds the beautifully crafted teak table. Outboard above the settee are five large lockers along the hull side. Behind the hinged settee seat back is additional storage space. Lee clothes are fitted at each settee. There are reading lamps located at the fore and aft ends of both settees. Two handrails run the length of the cabin overhead and numerous other handholds are available around the cabin. Hella turbo fans are located aft between the galley and nav station and the main salon.

  • Wempe Barograph
  • Weems and Plath Clock
  • Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo receiver with iPod connection
  • Cockpit and salon stereo speakers
  • Sony F21 DVD player

Nav station- starboard aft end of the main salon. With a wide bench seat and large lift-top table, the seat is a comfortable spot whether reading charts on the night watch or sitting and conversing with guests while at anchor. Locker and storage space is plentiful; two lockers outboard, storage below the seat, five drawers below the table and a deep locker inboard below the companionway stairs. Behind the nav station on the aft bulkhead, two long shelves provide a great space for storage of books and operation manuals.

Galley- aft of the main salon through the port side passageway. Corian countertops with teak fiddles run fore and aft along both sides of the passageway. Under the outboard galley counter is the large top loading fridge, Force 10 three-burner propane stove, top loading freezer and a set of five drawers with a slide out cutting board. Outboard of the counter, eight sliding door lockers with shelves provide exceptional storage. A GE microwave rests on the top shelf in the forward locker. Aft at the end of the counter is a tall pantry locker with shelves. Along the inboard side, open counter space stretches the length of the galley with the exception of the two bin stainless sink at the center. Below the counter, three lockers provide storage for larger items and cleaning supplies. At eye level above the counter, a series of sliding door lockers runs the length of the galley. Modular slats in the cabinet allow customization of dish storage.

  • Force Ten three burner stove with oven and broiler
  • Propane solenoid switch
  • Top and front opening refrigerator
  • Top opening freezer
  • GE Microwave oven
  • Double stainless steel sink with single lever faucet

Engine room- Access is through a large door to starboard just aft of the entrance to the aft cabin. A switch near the door turns on three overhead lamps that flood the space with light. Headroom and access to the Volvo diesel, Westerbeke genset and the rest of her systems is outstanding and the result of Hallberg-Rassy's mission to create a yacht that is user friendly and easy to maintain even while offshore. Heaters, pumps and filters are all easily accessible.

Owner stateroom- To port, along the hull side are two large lighted hanging lockers with a small locker above. A sofa bench aft provides a great place to relax and read a book or don sea boots and foul weather gear before leaving the cabin. A shelf with lift top locker is outboard. Three lockers are located above on the hull side. The double berth is slightly offset to starboard from the centerline. Two lockers with shelves are located to port and starboard at the head of the berth. A long bookshelf runs along the starboard hull side. There are three small lift top lockers below. Four drawers below the berth add to the storage space. Two additional lockers are located below the mirror and vanity on the forward end of the cabin. There are two reading lamps over the berth and two at the forward end of the cabin. A large Lewmar hatch and four ports add light and ventilation.

Ensuite aft head compartment- separate shower is just forward and to starboard of the aft stateroom. A teak grate covers the floor. The Jabsco manual head faces aft along the forward bulkhead. A counter with sink and single lever faucet is outboard along the hull side. Lockers with shelves are located below the counter and outboard. A mirror is hung on the aft bulkhead. The separate shower stall is forward. An adjustable height articulating shower head is mounted in the forward outboard corner of the compartment. Outboard along the hull side, a large locker provides access to the watermaker.
