Asking $629k

This Hallberg-Rassy 53 is a truly exceptional sailing yacht. This particular HR53 is Hull# 88 of the 88 Hallberg-Rassy 53s built and the last one ever in production. Designed for comfortable and luxurious long-distance cruising. This stunning vessel boasts a classic yet modern design, with elegant lines and a sturdy construction that is built to last.

The level of craftsmanship in boatbuilding at the traditional Hallberg-Rassy shipyard on the island of Orust in the Swedish Western Archipelago truly sets the stand for quality construction: the quality of the molded GRP,  the finish of the interior joinery and the standard of the technical installations are beyond question.

The Hallberg-Rassy 53 is a reliable, safe and very comfortable bluewater cruiser perfect for long hauls, even short handed. The deep center cockpit with the fixed windscreen, hard dodger and high coaming provides amazing protection from the elements, even in the roughest of conditions. The wide, unobstructed running decks allow for safe movement on deck while underway.

On deck this vessel features unrivaled specification including a full push-button hydraulic furling rig. She is a masthead sloop rigged with a triple spreader, Selden Furl-in mast, a hydraulic furling head stay, a fixed hydraulic furling inner forestay as well as a furling Code Zero for those light air downwind days. Combined with the electric winches this makes for an effortless sailing experience. Tension in the inner forestay is maintained by diamond stays and running backstays. A Navtec control panel in the cockpit manages the hydraulic boom vang and hydraulic backstay tensioner. Whether you're cruising along the coast or embarking on a transatlantic adventure, this yacht delivers exceptional performance and handling and is fully equipped for circumnavigation!

At 53 feet in length, this vessel offers a spacious and comfortable interior with ample living space for up to 6 guests with the 3 cabin layout; double bunk starboard forward berth, V-berth and the split aft cabin berths with seat in the middle, U-shaped galley to starboard and two single settees to port in saloon.

Sellers notes;

My wife and I were fortunate to know what we wanted in our next boat having been previous HR owners. Someone who has not that experience will be trying to fit our boat into their plans and needs. If you want the peace of mind that goes with knowing your boat is up to the job, then this boat is it.

Contact Chesnee Cogswell with BVI Yacht Sales to schedule a showing of this beautiful Yacht. Many more photos and videos on request. Don't miss your chance to own your dream boat. This 100% turn key, world cruiser will not last long on today's market!
