Modern and Efficient Hallberg-Rassy 400

3 MINUTES READ

The new Hallberg-Rassy 400 is an aft cockpit boat with twin helms, a modern and efficient hull shape with twin rudders and an easy to handle rig

The interior of the new Halberg-Rassy 400 offers the option of one or two aft cabins, one or two heads, classic mahogany or bright European oak interior. After the center cockpit 40C, the aft cockpit 400 is the second new 40 footer from Hallberg-Rassy in a short time. The cockpit is large. The twin helms make it easy to move in the cockpit. There is ample space on the pedestal heads for buttons and displays. The coaming is wide enough to offer flexibility for seating on top of the coaming or at bench level, with the benefit of the side protection by the coaming.

Easy to handle sail plan

The telltails of the headsail are easy to see from the helmsman’s position. There is a fixed high gloss varnished teak table available. Control lines are lead in a concealed way to the cockpit coamings, allowing electric winches, without taking up any interior space. There are bins for excess ropes so the cockpit is always clean and tidy. The main sheet track is conveniently located in front of the Hallberg-Rassy typical wind screen. There is a fold-out swim platform available. Cockpit length and deck locker storage is larger than on the 412.

Although she is ‘just’ 40 ft, she offers one or two heads, and two or three sleeping cabins. The forward cabin may be ordered in three different layouts. For the first time with an aft cockpit Hallberg-Rassy: an Owner’s Cabin in the bow, with center line bed and en-suite toilet with acrylic glass shower doors, double bed with toilet, shower with acrylic glass doors and space for a washing machine, or double bed cabin without own toilet. The saloon is available with L sofa and settees or L sofa and armchairs.

Large aft cockpit and flexible interior layout

For the first time with an aft cockpit Hallberg-Rassy, the washboard for the entrance is available with gas springs. If there is a single aft cabin, the starboard side settee is extra long. There is either a single aft cabin with large head with separate shower, or twin aft cabins, still with an aft head. The rig is modern and easy to handle. The headsail is only slightly overlapping and easy to tack and there is a self tacking option too. The bowsprit is elegantly integrated with the hull and deck as standard, not an afterthought.

The bowsprit is an excellent tack point for a gennaker, a mount for a bow ladder with platform and stowage for an Ultra bow anchor. Comfort equipment is available, such as bow- and stern thrusters, and this may be combined with a generator. There are other comfort options such as washing machine, dish washer, or an extra fridge and freezer. Air conditioner and watermaker are also possible.

The first boat yard will be presented at Scandinavia’s largest sailboat show, the Open Yard Ellös, Orust, 27-30 August 2021.
