We have bought a boat! Yes! In the summer of 2017 we made the decision that it was a Hallberg Rassy 43 we wanted. There are so many things that on this boat that we liked. The yard made 199 boats of this type. We did our research on what was important to us on a boat.
We went to look at this beautiful Hallberg Rassy 43 MKI in October 2017 in Denmark. After driving for 8 hours there we didn’t even spend 24 hours there! Decision was made quickly and we bought this boat. It has number 102 and was made in 2005.
We will do some upgrades on it to make it just the way we want it. We cannot wait to get started working!
Length: 13.57 m/ 44’6”
Beam: 4.08 m/ 13’5”
Draft: 2 m/ 6’7”
Weight 12 700 kg
Engine Volvo Penta D2-75, 55 kW/75 HP
This boat was built in 150 units (199 in total from 2001 to 2016) from 2001-2007.
It has a furling main and head sail. The winches are electric. It has an electric windlass. 4 people can sleep comfortably and there can be 2 more sleeping in the salon. It has 2 heads, both equipped with showers and also has a washer machine. Fridge and freezer and a stove with 2 burnes and an oven.
It is not equipped with a whole lot of things, so we have a long wishlist of things we will do ourselves as well as get help from professionals with installations. Nothing is super urgent so we will first of all get to know our boat and sail it and then see exactly what needs to be done.
The name? Well, we are changing the name as we don’t really like its current name. We have a great new name, we think, but have to decide for sure before it is official.
