Hallberg-Rassy 55 - large and well protected cockpit - debut at boot 2013
The Hallberg-Rassy 55 will premiere at the world's largest boatshow, boot Düsseldorf in Germany 19-27 January 2013. The new 55 connects closely to the successful 64, with lots of natural light through large tempered glass portlights in the saloon, as well as four hull portlights and seven flush mounted skylight hatches, of which three are in the saloon alone. White painted wooden panels in the saloon alcoves further contribute to the spacious and inviting feel.
Rig for blue water cruising
The rig has triple spreaders, which are only swept back three degrees resulting in extra stability and are not in the way when sailing downwind. Furthermore, there is an option for jumpstay that gives additional stability when using a permanent hydraulic cutterstay. The permanent cutterstay gives freedom and comfort for ocean crossings.
Large and well protected cockpit
Compared to the 54, the new 55 has as much as 30 cm longer cockpit. The helmsman's position is slightly elevated like on the 64. The superstructure of the 55 is lower in the forward end compared to the 54 and more elegant. As on the 64, there is no garage necessary for the sliding hatch. The top part of the side panel of the windscreen is slightly curved, as on the new 412.
Laid out for great comfort for a small crew
Apart from all the comfortable push-button operation you are already used to on a Hallberg-Rassy, the 55 is offered with both bow- and stern thrusters as well as backwinding genoa sheet winches. The whole boat is laid out for great comfort for a small crew, with a very bright and inviting interior. The first boat is already under construction. Please appoint a time for viewing at the yard in Ellös, Sweden.
