The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is a comfortable long distance cruiser based on the same winning concept the predecessor HR 46 has, but with fifteen more years of Frers’ and Hallberg-Rassy’s experience incorporated. The HR 48 is an all-over new design, starting with a blank sheet of paper.
The hull is just 21 cm longer but offers more living space inside, thanks to better use of the hull length. The waterline is no less than 135 cm longer. The sailing performance is all over up to date. Hull, rig, rudder and keel profiles include Frers latest experience.
With larger side windows, the interior is brighter. These also give greater window area and a better outer view. The aft cabin is wider and more generous. The berths are wider and longer and it is now possible to order a centre line berth with a seat on each side and a make up table to starboard.
The interior design is softened up with panel locker doors with rounded corners and profile milled frames. The lockers are well ventilated with special grids on top.
The straight sofa in the saloon is 14 cm longer. The galley is 6 cm longer. There is 53 cm more hanging locker length.
The V cabin berth is longer and 15 cm lower, to make it easier to enter the bed. The cabin between the V cabin and the saloon is 7 cm longer and more airy.
The aft cabin hatch is elegantly flush mounted. The cockpit is longer. The cockpit coaming is higher, giving improved protection. There is better seating comfort in the cockpit, due to the ergonomic angle of the backrest. The blue stripe around the cockpit is gelcoat. The genoa sheet winches are fitted so that friction is minimised due to eliminated footblocks. The winch base is extended to give one a useful step for entering the cockpit. If electric winches are ordered, these will not disturb the headroom as on the HR 46.
The engine is the latest development from Volvo Penta, an efficient 5 cylinder with common rail technology and 20 valves. The Volvo Penta D3-110 develops 81 kW/110 HP. Maximum torque is as much as 342 Nm at just 2000 RPM. The fuel tank capacity is improved by as much as 140 litres to 800 litres. The range is 1 060 Nautical Miles, that's roughly from Hamburg in Germany to Iceland, motoring non-stop!
Extensive standard equipment
The standard equipment list is more extensive than on the HR 46. For example Raymarine ST 60 Speed, Depth and Wind as well as two holding tanks are included in the HR 48. Items such as teak on deck and coachroof, electric windlass, twin heaters, fridge compressor, antifouling, high gloss varnished teak table on steering pedestal, mainsail and furling jib are standard.
Popular in the press
The German magazine "Nautica" says: "The HR 48 is probably the best Hallberg-Rassy ever built. And that's a lot."
Europe's largest sailing magazine "Yacht" says: "The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is the new measure for blue water cruisers"
Boat of the Year
The Hallberg-Rassy 48 has been elected Boat of the Year in her category in the catalogue Yacht Trends 2006. Furthermore, HR 48 is nominated in the category Full-Size Cruiser in Cruising World's Boat of the Year award 2007.
All in all, the Hallberg-Rassy 48 improves a winning formula. We have a yacht that we are very proud of and believe will be very successful for many years to come.
