Hallberg-Rassy 48 Mk II
The new Hallberg-Rassy 48 Mk II offers More natural light - More comfort - More elegance - She is even More Hallberg-Rassy!
A winning concept further developed
The Hallberg-Rassy 48 Mk II is a blue water cruiser that is improved on 15 points compared to the predecessor 48:
The engine is a state of the art Volvo Penta, an efficient 5 cylinder with common rail technology and 20 valves. The Volvo Penta D3-110 develops 81 kW/110 HP. Maximum torque is as much as 342 Nm at just 2000 RPM. That is the perfect engine for a displacement cruiser like this.
You don't really use your horse power but you use your torque, at low RPM. That is why you need a modern engine with high torque at low RPM. That gives comfortable power, low noise and low vibrations.
That is comfort!
The fuel tank capacity of the 48 is as much as 800 litres. This modern engine combined with an overdrive propeller from Gori gives a range of 1 060 Nautical Miles, that's roughly from Hamburg in Germany to Iceland, motoring non-stop! That is what you need for a contemporary Blue Water Cruiser.
Extensive standard equipment
The standard equipment list is rather extensive. For example Raymarine Speed, Depth and Wind as well as two holding tanks are included in the Hallberg-Rassy 48 Mk II. Items such as teak on deck and coachroof, electric windlass with Delta anchor and chain, twin heaters with insulated hoses, fridge compressor, antifouling, and high gloss varnished teak table on steering pedestal, mainsail and furling jib, wind screen with tempered glass, and a lot more, are examples of the extensive standard equipment.
Hallberg-Rassy 48 Mk II gives more natural light, more comfort and more elegance. She develops an already successful concept.
Popular in the press
The German magazine "Nautica" says:
"The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is probably the best Hallberg-Rassy ever built. And that's a lot."
Europe's largest sailing magazine "Yacht" says:
"The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is the new measure for Blue Water Cruisers"
Blue water cruiser with possibilities
Most Hallberg-Rassy yachts are sailed by one or two couples. Only occasionally is there a need for a third cabin. With this in mind, Hallberg-Rassy have developed the Supercabin forward of the mast. That means the yacht has two high priority double cabins and one more two-berth cabin in the front for occasional use.
Apart from the comfortable aft cabin there is now also a very generous cabin in front of the mast with a double berth and lots of elbow space. The V-cabin in front is still there and the actual berths are not smaller than they normally are but the hanging locker and the floor area of the V-cabin has been reduced in favour for the super cabin forward of the mast.
The linear galley
The linear galley configuration is offered on port side with more worktop area and an additional fridge that is front opening. The linear galley also gives the opportunity for two people to work in the galley simultaneously.
U shaped galley to starboard
The alternative with the galley to starboard has its advantages. The one who works in the galley doesn't obstruct the natural flow through the boat, for example into the aft cabin. The person working in the galley has good contact with the people in the cockpit, as well as to the saloon. The lockers are wider than with the port side galley. You may safely open the lockers above the sinks on any tack.
Push button sailing
Bright and inviting interior
The Hallberg-Rassy 48 Mk II interior is bright and inviting. She offers lots of storage for extended voyages. She will take you anywhere, in style and comfort.
The Hallberg-Rassy 48 is probably the best Hallberg-Rassy ever built. And that's a lot.
