    Beautifully-presented 2005-launched example of the German Frers designed Hallberg-Rassy 37 centre-cockpit cruising yacht. Great cruising spec and lots of recent updates.


    The Hallberg-Rassy 37 is an evolution of the extremely popular Hallberg-Rassy 36 MkI & II. Launched in 2003 the German Frers design was in production through until 2012 with approximately 200 hulls produced. With her increased internal volume and more modern hull shape she proved to be an excellent cruiser; winning the Cruising World Production Cruiser Boat of the Year award in 2006.

    The Hallberg-Rassy 37 AILONA has benefitted from significant upgrading in recent years with her current owners. Reluctantly offered for sale as her owners ‘swallow the anchor’ she comes with a comprehensive inventory including highlights such as:
    • Yanmar 4JH4E marine diesel engine with less than 1700hrs of recorded running

    Lying on her berth at Ardfern Yacht Centre the Hallberg-Rassy 37 AILONA is available for viewing by appointment.


    The boat is touted as a well-built long-distance cruiser. While others may talk the talk, this one walks the walk. A test sail of the Hallberg-Rassy 37 proves that with this model, the attention to detail is what makes it a delight. The boat’s seakindly performance gives the assurance that it can take you anywhere, and once you get onboard, that’s exactly where you’ll want to go.
