    Evergreen German Frers designed centre-cockpit bluewater cruising yacht from Hallberg-Rassy in Sweden. Huge cruising inventory including generator, solar panels, heating, air-conditioning, full-time cutter rig and davits.


    The Hallberg-Rassy 45 was the first of the German Frers designed Hallberg-Rassy yachts and heralded the start of a new era for the boat building power house. Introduced in 1988 the design retained classic Hallberg-Rassy features and introduced the new Frers designed interiors and high-volume hull design with the now HR signature centre cockpit and spacious master cabin aft. Remaining in production until 1996 a total of 71 yachts left the factory.

    71 units of the Hallberg-Rassy 45 were built 1988-1996. When the Hallberg-Rassy 45 was launched in 1988 it was a trendsetter. This was the first Hallberg-Rassy designed by Germán Frers. The Hallberg-Rassy 45 introduced an external lead keel, sturdy hull stiffener along and across the boat, between the sole and the keel, which reinforces the construction considerably. In addition it introduced a hull insulated with Divinycell foam core, which not only insulates from heat and cold, it also ensures an even firmer hull with a smooth inside, in contrast to the stringers of old days.

    The 45 combined all Hallberg-Rassy's traditional hallmarks, like style, sturdiness, comfort, fine woodwork, thorough technical installations and an ample tank capacity with sailing characteristics unsurpassed for a sailing boat of this type. The Hallberg-Rassy 45 claimed overall victory in the ARC over the Atlantic, in competition with a range of vessels from Whitbread boats and racers/cruisers to smaller family style boats.

    Below deck the Hallberg-Rassy 45 is a cozy home. Lean back in the comfortable upholstery and enjoy the soft sheen of the selected mahogany. The interior concept, typical for Hallberg-Rassy, has been thought through in every detail. It has resulted from our experiences and the experiences of our customers. The Hallberg-Rassy 45 is a yacht one can live on. The quality of life on board is considerably improved if the interior layout is functionally correct. Many details on our yachts reflect this concept. Take the galley for instance. Located where there is least activity yet plenty of light and fresh air - by the companionway. On either side of the cocker and the sink are useful worktops. The galley is seagoing. The WC/washrooms are directly accessible from the sleeping accommodation fore and aft, ideal to step straight into your shower after your sleep. The navigation area - sufficient room to walk past without disturbing the navigator. The walkthroughs are positioned in such a way to allow privacy in fore and aft cabins without having to close the door.

    The cutter-rig is the best solution in combination with a Furling genoa. In hard weather you load use a small jib on the cutterstay. When not using the cutterstay and runners, you keep them close to the mast.

    Port and starboard of the companion way there are two cockpit chart tables with fiddles. As the cockpit is so deep, you will have very easy access to the accommodation from the cockpit.

    The Hallberg-Rassy 45 has a positive angle transom giving a great aft deck and easy access to the stowage space below. It also makes the docking and the passage ashore easy.
