Hallberg-Rassy 31

Brief details

Builder

Hallberg-Rassy Varvs AB, Ellös, Sweden

A quality cruising yacht, the Hallberg-Rassy 31 has all the features of the larger Hallberg-Rassys in a small package - fixed windscreen, teak decks, beautiful mahogany internal joinery and solid build quality. This model had an extremely long production run from 1993 to 2009, and thus prices can vary dramatically depending on age and wear and tear.

In 1972 Harry Hallberg and Christoph Rassy merged their boatyard operations to become Hallberg-Rassy, building a long series of quality boats by top designers including Olle Enderlein and Germán Frers. Hallberg-Rassys have always been very expensive new, and for many sailors represent the ideal cruising yacht.

 

The Hallberg-Rassy 31 was designed in 1993 by Germán Frers, as a fractionally lighter but significantly beamier replacement for the long-running Enderlein and Rassy designed HR312.

The Hallberg-Rassy 31 remained in production for a remarkable 16 years, before being replaced in late 2009 by the Hallberg-Rassy 310, which was actually slightly smaller and lighter, with a lower ballast ratio.

The Hallberg-Rassy 31 was built in the Mk I version until 2005, and from 2006 onwards was built as the Mk II. There are only minor differences between the two versions, the biggest change being a twin-spreader rig of lighter section in the Mk II. The photos here are of a 2003 Mk I yacht.

The aft double berth is surprisingly large for a 31 foot yacht - the brochure quotes the dimensions as 2.25 M long by 1.62M at it's widest.

The Hallberg-Rassy 31, like most boats from the company, were sold in two versions, the standard and the "Scandinavia" version. The "Scandinavia" versions tend to be the most commonly found, and have teak decks as well as various upgrades to the basic specification.

Christoph Rassy was the first to build a sailing yacht with a fixed windscreen - the Rasmus 35 in 1966, and this feature has been part of almost every Hallberg-Rassy yacht since, and copied by other builders

Hallberg-Rassy 31

Whilst the fixed windscreen and blue contrast stripe on the hull are very much a Hallberg-Rassy 'trademark', the metal-capped lower rubbing strake is a common feature on boats built in the Baltic, where mooring between posts is common - this preventing hull damage.
