Extremely well maintained bluewater equipped Hallberg Rassy 46 with great specification and trans-oceanic coding for skippered charter.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Coded for skippered charter at the very highest trans-oceanic level in Finland, SISSI has been enjoyed by her owners and their guests for extended ocean adventures across the Atlantic and further afield, with her most recent cruising taking in a circumnavigation following on from the 2018 ARC. Having been a regular entrant in the World Cruising Club’s ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers), SISSI has proven herself in all conditions and in all climates.
SISSI’s specification highlights include:-
- 3-cabin layout with split aft owner’s cabin.
- Standard 1.88m fin keel with skeg-hung rudder
- Powerful 125hp Yanmar diesel engine
- Fischer Panda 6kw generator
- Twin wind generator and solar panels on custom fabricated stern gantry
- Davits built into stern gantry
- Schenker watermaker
- Webasto diesel fire hot air cabin heating
- Inmast furling system
- Spinnaker pole
- Recent sail wardrobe
- Autohelm and Lowrance instrument package with plotters and 4G radar
- Satellite phone
- Sea water cooled compressor for refrigeration and freezer
Continually updated in recent seasons, SISSI is now offered for sale in turn-key condition.
We have sailed SISSI across the Atlantic on seven occasions and we had planned for a circumnavigation. The Hallberg Rassy 46 has proven herself to be extremely sturdy and easy to navigate. We have been positively surprised by her light wind sailing qualities. SISSI is already sailing well in winds as light at 8 knots.
The Hallberg-Rassy 46 was built in 132 units between 1995 and 2005. Production numbers were shared between the HR 45 and the HR 46, although there were different moulds. Hull numbers 1-69 plus Number 83 are Hallberg-Rassy 45s, and 70-202, except No 83, were Hallberg-Rassy 46s.
Short-handed sailing is easy in this attractive Frers-designed cruiser. She is both a fairly good performer and seakindly. It is a boat made to go around the world or cruise local waters.
When she was introduced, the Hallberg-Rassy 46 won the Yacht of the Year award in the biggest category in the respected German magazine Yacht.
“Taking everything into consideration the Hallberg-Rassy 46 got my vote as the boat best-designed and equipped to sail long distances comfortably."
"Swedish builders Hallberg-Rassy have a global reputation when it comes to setting standards for blue water cruising......Apart from their good manners under sail and power, much of the yachts' reputation is based on the solid build and high quality standard specification - considered by many to be the cruising icon."
