A world wide reputation with world wide capabilities

There are few yards that enjoy such a global acclaim of building long distance cruisers as Hallberg-Rassy. With the HR 62 the tradition is followed; to continuously build easy to sail cruising boats with good performance. The HR 62 also shows a number of significant improvements. The co-operation with the Argentinean top designer, Germán Frers, has been very successful with over 2,400 HR yachts sold since 1989. Hallberg-Rassy is proud that this collaboration has come about, and at the same time though aware of the obligation to build world class yachts.

Yacht of the year

The HR 62 won the "Yacht of the year" award in Germany in the largest class, over 50 ft. At the same time, the HR 62 was voted the most popular model of all categories, over all. No other boat got over a third of all votes, as did the HR 62. The award is voted by 40,000 of the readers of the most respected German magazine, Yacht.

Also, the Hallberg-Rassy 62 is presented as "Import Cruising Boat of the Year 2006" in the January 2006 issue of Cruising World magazine from the USA.

Characteristic for Hallberg-Rassy layouts are that they are all logical, well arranged and work for long periods on board either at sea or in the harbour. As on all of the HR yachts, the floor in the new 62 is the same level throughout the boat. This contributes to easy access to all cabins. The HR 62 has a very light and airy saloon with big opening side windows as well as opening skylights. The displacement of the yacht is designed not only to give the generous stowage you need for long voyages, but also space for all modern comfort equipment. Access to technical equipment is made easy for service.
The yacht has generous tank capacity to undertake serious cruising.

Well protected center cockpit

As expected on a Hallberg-Rassy, the cockpit is very well protected, generous in size and offers good all-round visibility. It is well suited for the various demands of the most difficult climates from extreme cold to tropical heat. The cockpit offers good shelter from a hardtop or soft top with an opening mid section that works perfectly in cold as well as heat. This solution has become synonymous with the modern cruising yacht.

A powerful engine

A powerful engine is an important part of a long distance cruiser. It runs at cruising speed (8.2 knots) at a low 1,300 RPM. Furthermore, a two geared three bladed folding propeller with overdrive provides maximum performance under power, an important point which cannot be emphasised enough for extended voyages.

Push button sailing

Despite the fact that the boat is built as a top-of-the-range yacht, she can virtually be sailed single handed. Push buttons located at the steering pedestal allow you to raise and lower the anchor, or set and sheet the sails. "Push button sailing" is no longer just a symbolic expression, it is reality already in the standard version.

Hallberg-Rassy 62 - the world cruiser for a family crew

Comments by her designer:

"As the top of the line of high quality offshore cruising boats produced by this world renowned builder, the HR 62 represents years of experience and a synergy of efforts on the part of Hallberg-Rassy and our design office to produce the best possible yacht of its kind.
The high performance, well balanced, strong hull of moderate draft is matched by an efficient and easy to handle sail plan.
The areas reserved for leisure on deck are very generous and the interior has plenty of natural light and ventilation.
A new owner will immediately be able to appreciate Hallberg-Rassy's know how building and fitting out their yachts, as much as their design and performance in all conditions."
