Grabau International is delighted to announce the listing of the 2001 Hallberg Rassy 36 MkII ‘EOWYN’
Very well presented, great spec, example of the popular MkII centre cockpit HR36. In the same ownership since 2003 and used only for light cruising around the coastal waters of Scotland’s West Coast.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
The Hallberg-Rassy 36 is arguably one of the companies most successful designs with over 600 hulls produced during a 14 year production run. The MkII was introduced in 1994 to modernise the well proven design, improve comfort and provide increased volume below decks. Since their introduction the HR36 has proven to be an ideal family coastal cruising yacht, small enough to be easily handled by a single handed sailer while large enough to be capable to blue water cruising in comfort.
Listed in association with our Scottish partners Mark Cameron Yachts, EOWYN is a well maintained and nicely present example of the class from the later part of its production run. Bought by the current owners in 2003 she has been lightly used for family coastal cruising around the waters of Scotlands west coast. Now reluctantly offered for sale she comes with a full inventory ready to launch and sail away. Currently lying ashore in a winterised condition the boat would be launched, commissioned and presented afloat for a purchaser to collect.
Her specification highlights include:- • Centre cockpit layout with double and single in aft cabin • Bathing platform at stern • Deep centre cockpit for comfortable and safe cruising • Sprayhood and cockpit tent • Volvo MD22P 57hp diesel engine • Varifold 3-bladed prop with Ambassador rope cutter • Semi-skegged rudder • Teak laid side decks and cabin top • Diesel cabin heating • Stereo with CD and speakers in cockpit and saloon • Raymarine RL70C colour chart plotters in cockpit and in salon • Raymarine autopilot • Recently replaced batteries • Mastervolt smart charger • Inmast furling • Cruising chute with snuffer • Genoa plus working jib • Electric anchor windlass
Chartering for several years helped create a shortlist of our requirements when it came to buying our own yacht. Safety, space and ease of handling were all paramount. A holiday in a HR352 had given us a taste for Rassy design, but felt it was a little too snug for our young family. EOWYN proved to be the perfect choice for us; all the safety and quality of the 352, but with extra space exactly where we needed it and the bonus of a better turn of speed.
EOWYN has kept us safe and comfortable over 15 years of ownership, covering the west coast of Scotland with occasional trips to Ireland and the Isle of Man. She has allowed us to gain a wonderful knowledge of west coast geography, as well as experiencing some amazing wildlife from sea eagles to orca, all with a backdrop of stunning scenery. She has provided us a collection of family memories which will last a lifetime. However it is now time for us to move on to new adventures, and so we have decided to offer new owners the opportunity to take over guardianship of this wonderful cruising yacht.
Hallberg-Rassy 36 was built during 1989 – 2003. A total of 602 hulls were built. Boat No 1-256 from 1989-1994 were the Mark I, No 257-602 from 1994-2003 were the Mark II. Mark II has a developed transom with integrated bathing platform. The Mark II is 30 cm wider at the transom compared to Mk I. At the same time the aft deck locker was improved from a higher level than the deck on Mark I to flush on the Mk II. The walk deck also got wider, as well as the superstructure of the aft cabin. Inside this has given the newer Mk II model more room, more lockers and wider berths in the aft cabin. Although the hull length was increased with 44 cm (1′ 5”) on the Mk II, the maximum sailing waterline was increased by no less than 67 cm (2′ 3”). Deck lengths remained the same. Mast, keel, rudder and underwater shape as well as engine configuration also remained the same between Mk I and Mk II. An already good boat got even better and more contemporary with the Mk II version.
The 36 is a mid-range model. Small enough, yet big enough to go anywhere, any time. Designed and constructed by yachtsmen to combine the latest in technology and traditional standards, it provides comfort and nice lines as you expect from a Hallberg-Rassy.
The layout is very well laid out and allows for excellent comfort and unimpeded passage from one end of the boat to the other. The sturdy mast support comes together with the main bulkhead and not through the table or sofa. There is a big chart table in the boat’s heading direction where you can sit comfortably.
She has surprising performance for her type, the result of very thorough work of the hull parameters and shape by her designer, Germán Frers. The moderate V sections result in a pleasant motion at sea normally found in larger yachts. She has won her class in the ARC over the Atlantic as well as local races.
