Hallberg-Rassy HR55

Hallberg-Rassy 55

Photo Gallery

The Hallberg-Rassy 55 reflects many of the innovations as shown in the 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. White painted wooden panels in the saloon alcoves further contribute to the spacious and inviting feel.

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.

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. The steering pedestal allows space for an integrated 14 inch plotter.
