A lovingly maintained example of the very popular early designed centre-cockpit sturdy build Hallberg-Rassy. Cutter ketch rigged boat for blue water adventures with a great pedigree.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
SANTA LUCIA is hull nr. 104 and the penultimate is this hugely successful Olle Enderlein series design of which 105 were built between 1975 and 1981. Lovingly maintained she comes with a comprehensive cruising inventory with highlights such as: • Ketch rig with furling mainsail and slab-reefing mizzen • Furling genoa and MPS • Bowsprit for mounting anchor and MPS • Solid GRP hull construction with encapsulated fin keel and full-depth skeg rudder • Teak laid deck – replaced 2010 • Aft teak/stainless steel bathing platform – fitted 2009 • Stainless steel dinghy davits • Glazed windscreen forward of companionway • Volvo 65hp engine with shaft drive and MaxProp feathering propeller • Vetus bowthruster • Wind generator and solar panels • Twin engine alternators • Recently replaced battery banks • B&G instruments • Radar • Holding tanks • Refitted galley – 2009
It is very difficult to find a vessel so seaworthy and seakindly with an encapsulated keel, a strong motor, a tough hull and deck – 35 mm thick – a bowsprit with the genoa housed like a 44” yacht, the ketch rigging and a tankage as a 50” of these days.
SANTA LUCIA is ready for a world circumnavigation never done up to now. All the specifications had been improved during the years making this yacht so safe and not comparable with other more modern yachts.
A TREND SETTER Hallberg-Rassy 41 was built during 1975 – 1981. A total of 105 hulls were built. The Hallberg-Rassy 41 quickly became a trend-setter. This was the first boat with a proper walk through to the aft-cabin below deck and the first Hallberg-Rassy with a blue stripe around the cockpi
SPECTACULAR FOR ITS TIME The Hallberg-Rassy 41 is a long distance cruiser with the keel and rudder separated, and among other things a brim around the cockpit, which is slightly elevated, to give room for the passage below deck. The size of the boat and the outfitting was spectacular for its time: Pressured water, heated water, shower, electric anchor winch, headsail furling system, two separate heads, a powerful engine, solid and elegant wooden interior and gracious lines.
COMFORTABLE INTERIOR The basic principle for the layout, though greatly improved, is used to this day. The Hallberg-Rassy 41 has free passage from stem to stern below deck in one level. The galley is placed by the stairs, out of the ways from any passer-by, providing safety at sea and providing full headroom in the whole galley. The chart table on the opposite side is generous and with a real seat in the boats heading direction. The main mast is integrated with the bulkhead in the saloon, and do not pass through the table or the sofa.
HALLBERG-RASSY 41 WINS ROLEX GIRAGLIA RACE 2011 An old Hallberg-Rassy 41 ketch by the name of “Gianin 6” won in corrected time in her category (ORC, 23 boats) the famous Rolex Giraglia Race between St. Tropez and Genoa via Giraglia Island (top of Corsica Island). The distance is 245 nautical miles. The result is really a surprise in view of the type/age of the boat. The crew of seven, headed by her owner Pietro Supparo, are all friends and they took the race in a very “amateur” spirit…they even embarked 300 bottles of mineral water and had a big anchor on the bow as well as rolled jib etc… The only concession was new sails (not racing ones, of course, but cruising ones!). They came in front a big fleet of modern boats and aggressive skippers. Wind and sea conditions were quite calm for the whole race and participants were about 200 divided in various classes.
