The Halberg-Rassy 352 is a very well regarded offshore and ocean cruising yacht, with centre cockpit, a comfortable interior with walk through access to the aft cabin, and good sailing ability. Construction quality is excellent. With a long production run and varying usage, some yachts having clocked up very high mileages, prices can vary considerably - a big factor being the condition of the teak deck, which can be very expensive to replace if necessary.

Over 800 Hallberg-Rassy 352s were built between 1978 and 1991, making it one of the most popular quality offshore cruisers ever. The design was by Christoph Rassy and Olle Enderlein. Hulls are solid GRP mouldings, built according to Lloyd's specifications, under personal supervision of Lloyd's surveyors. With a long encapsulated iron fin keel and skeg-hung rudder on heavy cast bronze fittings, the HR352 is very much a solid bluewater-capable yacht. The teak-laid decks are on a sandwich GRP moulding, the sandwich construction using polyvinyl cellular plastics as core material rather than the more common and cheaper balsa. The main water and fuel tanks are also fitted in the keel stub, improving stability, and the HR352s were all fitted with powerful Volvo diesels.

There were various minor changes to the design over the production perod, the most significant being small increases in hull height in 1980 and again in 1986 to slightly increase headroom.

Early boats had two wide single berths in the aft cabin, later ones had one double and one single. Some early boats have been modified to this newer layout.

Two rigs were fitted, the standard single-spreader rig was the one most often supplied to the boats destined for the UK and France, but a taller double-spreader "Scandinavian" rig was used for boats intended for use in the lighter winds of the Baltic and North America.

Quite detailed historical and technical information on the Hallberg-Rassy 352 is available on the current Hallberg-Rassy website

There were two variants of the Hallberg-Rassy 352 - the "Scandinavian" version had a taller two-spreader rig aimed at lighter winds in the Baltic, whilst the standard version had a single-spreader rig, generally regarded as better for serious blue water sailing. For typical coastal cruising many people prefer the bigger rig.
