Hallberg-Rassy 69 is the greatest yacht ever built by Hallberg-Rassy. Literally! This flagship can be handled by a family crew, through the concept of Effortless Sailing through Push Button Operation. At the same time there is room for deckhand or skipper if desired.
The exterior exudes graceful elegance with its sweeping lines. The deck is unusually clean and completely flushed forward of the mast. The deck locker spaces are huge. The cockpit is unusually large, has two L-shaped sofas, a large and solid wooden cockpit table in high-gloss varnish. There is an optional cockpit fridge. The cockpit is well protected by the Hallberg-Rassy-typical windshield or hardtop. The helmsman’s position is unexposed and has good protection through a proper coaming around.
The interior is located on a level from bow to stern, important for moving freely, whether it is while sailing or at anchor or in port. There is an unusual amount of natural light, with eight hull portlights. You sit in the saloon and look out through the large hull portlights. It provides full contact with the outside world, while blinds can easily be pulled on if transparency or sunlight is not desired. A person of normal height looks upright through the large saloon portlights. The interior design options enables a walk-in closet, a cabin for a deckhand, and VIP guest cabins.
The engine is unusually well-dimensioned, even for a Hallberg-Rassy. It is a 6-cylinder Volvo Penta D6-300 of 300 hp with a high and flat torque with an increadible 790 Newton meters of torque at 2,100 rpm.
The first Hallberg-Rassy 69 will sail in the winter of 2023/2024.
