    Hallberg-Rassy 39 was built from 1991 until 2003. A total of 209 boats were built. Number 1-54 between 1991 and 1994 were the Mark I, number 55-209 were Mark II 1994-2. The difference between Mk I and Mk II is mainly that the Mk I has a traditional transom and the Mk II a developed transom with built in bathing platform. The rest of the hull, keel, rudder, and sailplan remained the same.

    This is a yacht with two very generous double cabins and a vast toilet compartment. You often hear that every boat is 1 m too short. This does not apply to the Hallberg-Rassy 39. There are not too many berths, but the interior is fabulously roomy and allows for excellent elbow space for her crew. Someone said that the HR 39 is the world's most perfect 36-footer. That says a lot about the concept of the Hallberg-Rassy 39.

    The layout offers much storage and provides excellent comfort. The interior allows for some special solutions like the famous Hallberg-Rassy Chairs in the saloon. These were introduced by Hallberg-Rassy in 1984 and many boat yards around the world have tried to copy these. The aft cabin can be built with two separate berths or a queen size berth at starboard and a L-sofa at port. The galley is seagoing and does not interfere with the natural flow through the boat. Storage throughout the boat is generous.

    Cruising World magazine, USA, about the Hallberg-Rassy 39 :
    "...this yacht has the proper makings of an offshore cruising yacht. Below, the mahogany interior is flawlessly joined and meticulously finished, a hallmark of Hallberg-Rassy yachts... Not readily visible are the telltale signs of Hallberg-Rassy's above-average engineering and building methods, lurking unseen behind the fine joinery below. The builder's reputation for excellence translates into good resale value.... My experience with Hallberg-Rassy has convinced me that sailboats can make beautiful, safe homes. If comfortable passages, solid construction, elegance and attention to detail make sense, then so does the Hallberg-Rassy 39."
