Although she is a comfortable cruising boat, she wins races in tough competition. In Tjörn Runt 2012, one of the largest inshore races in the world, the 412 not only won her class among 48 boats, she was even first to finish in her class, among racing boats. The winning boat had in-mast furling with FatFurl.
“While others talk the talk, this one walks the walk”.
Push Button Sailing with the phenomenal Hallberg-Rassy 412
There’s a nod to modernity in her hidden running rigging, under-deck furler and the numerous flush hatches, and the sailplan has a slightly overlapping jib or optional self-tacker and gennaker flown from a removable bowsprit. But it´s on going below that you´ll sigh and not want to leave, so comfortable is a saloon that is as beautifully finished in mahogany as ever, and the practical U-shaped galley positively begs you to rattle a pan or two at heel. Top marks too to Hallberg-Rassy for getting a lot more light into their current models via hull ports and overhead hatches.”
A modern sailplan
There are two big exterior chart tables in teak. It goes without saying that the cockpit is well protected by a windscreen that blends perfectly into the lines of the yacht. There are no less than seven large deck hatches, all flush mounted so that the glass is level with the coach roof or the teak deck.
Bright and welcoming interior
Below deck the interior is roomy and bright. The saloon is bathed in natural light. There are double large skylights in the saloon, and the boat has four hull portlights, of which two are in the saloon. Hull portlights give you good contact with the surroundings while seated. All side port lights are opening and the same large size as on the Hallberg-Rassy 54. The galley is big, U shaped and seagoing. Both sofas in the saloon are a full two metres long. There are options of one or two heads. There are options of one or two separate showers with PlexiGlass doors.
Option for one or two aft cabins
Heavy lead keel on deep bilge
The lead keel has a heavy bulb and weighs 4 tons. The keel is bolted onto a deep bilge, for both strength and comfort. The rudder is deep and with good rudder bearings for good feel and control even under tough conditions. The hull has an integral rubbing rail.
Generously sized engine
The engine is a generously sized 75 HP with 340 litres of fuel, which gives a long cruising range.
”Hallberg-Rassy have a knack of building go-anywhere, beautifully finished boats with a surprising turn of speed – but Germán Frers know a thing or two about hull design. This larger sister to the very successful Hallberg-Rassy 372 looks superbly proportioned, with a large, protected cockpit, fixed screen and an optional fixed table.
