** The owner would consider part exchanges for similar-valued high quality semi-displacement motor yachts **

Beautifully maintained and upgraded Hallberg Rassy 48 with the extremely desirable factory hard-top. Configured for reliable ocean cruising, GINGER is ready for the ARC or a circumnavigation.


Sensibly configured for reliable and effortless blue water cruising, GINGER is the perfect solution for those looking to cross oceans with minimal hassle. Thanks to her German Frers hull lines, GINGER is a fast boat with long ocean passages tackled with speed, safety and ease.

Her inventory highlights include:-
• Hardtop
• Solar panels
• Bowthruster
• Elvstrom EMS Vectran sails
• Furling gennaker
• In-mast furling rig with genoa, staysail and electric winches
• Full navigation suite from Raymarine including AIS
• Large separated fridge and freezer compartments

Completed in October 2006 as a 2007 model, and launched in March 2007, GINGER has had just two owners, the first keeping her until 2012. Her current owner has further refitted and updated the yacht for blue water cruising and recent updates include new Elvstrom sails and new batteries.

Wintered ashore each season and routinely serviced, GINGER is ready to go anywhere and at any time.


The Hallberg Rassy 48 is just 21cm longer than her predecessor, the HR 46, but offers noticeable more living space inside, thanks to better use of the hull length. The waterline is no less than 135cm longer.

With larger side windows, the interior is brighter which also gives greater outward views.

The fuel tank capacity allows a range of over 1,000 miles which is roughly from the English Channel to the Azores, motoring non-stop in calm weather at cruising speed.

The HR 48 gives you more performance and more comfort at the same time. The HR 48 is a yacht to be proud of.

The German magazine ‘Nautica’ writes:-
“The HR 48 is probably the best Hallberg Rassy ever built. And that’s a lot.”

Europe’s largest sailing magazine, ‘Yacht’ writes:-
“The Hallberg Rassy 48 is the new measure for blue water cruisers”
