Check out this well maintained 1976 Hallberg Rassy Rasmus 35! Hallberg-Rassy boats spring from centuries of Swedish boat-building lore and tradition. Their basic intent is a seaworthy hull, one requirement is common to all the Hallberg Rassy Yachts - they should be safe under all conditions, anywhere in the world. The Rasmus 35 offers outstanding sailing characteristics, fast in varying wind, go to weather with a balanced helm and reach and run in a seaway with a comfortable, controlled motion. Stepping aboard this boat is like stepping back in time, she is a great example of a well preserved yacht. Two owner, fresh water boat that has always been winter stored indoors heated. The current owner is a Chief Engineer in the Merchant Marine and the pride of ownership shows. Please contact us for further details or for a personal showing.
Rasmus is a boat for comfortable cruising and it is also a way of living - during offshore sailing, as well as during shorter trips away from everyday stress. Rasmus has ample room to live comfortably with your family and entertain your friends both at sea and in the harbor. Thanks to the well-planned design with a separate roomy cabin aft, there is the possibility of privacy for those who wish.
The hull and rig are pure sailboat, but a motorsailer cabin gives the protection from rain and wind that is often needed under adverse weather conditions.
The fresh-water and fuel tanks are large enough for long trips even by motor. Rasmus doesn't only have six berths, it also has ample room for six people! Two berths are placed in a separate cabin aft, two forward in the V-berth and two at the convertible dinette in the main cabin.
The galley equipment is unusually generous with, among other things, an oven. There is comfortable standing space even in the head, which is completely separate and has enough room for dressing.
Over the years, interiors have become one of Hallberg Rassy's trademarks. Fiberglass can provide an ideal hull but a warm, livable interior demands wood. The woodwork below on this boat provides warmth and class. You won't find stereotyped planning here. Hallberg Rassy has maintained a well-designed interior by resisting the temptation to squeeze in extra berths. The Rasmus will not only sleep a given number of crew, but will also provide that same number of crew with comfortable cooking, eating and living space.
Although the MD21 is original to the boat, this is a true marine diesel fitted with gear drive for the camshaft, raw water pump, engine coolant pump and fuel injector pump. The only belt driven device is the new Balmar 100A alternator. The reverse gear is a mechanical gear, "no hydraulics".
Owner has a spare fuel injector pump, fuel lift/priming pump, injectors, glow plugs, raw water rebuild kit, coolant pump rebuild kit (very rare), intake/exhaust manifold and starter.
Fuel burn is approximately 1 gallon per hour at 7.5 knots cruise.
Enough spares to keep the engine running for years...
