About this Hallberg Rassy 352
When launched the Hallberg Rassy 352 was described as 'The ultimate 35 cruiser' considering how well the design has stood the test of time this may not be far off the truth. Designed to provide comfortable cruising in a boat capable of making good speed while being luxuriously comfortable may explain why demand for the model remains strong now, more than 30 years after its launch.
A much loved example of this popular design the boat is now reluctantly offered for sale. She benefits from having been well maintained during the current ownership, winter ashore undercover each winter and is presented ready to launch this spring. Wintering shore under her full deck cover she is available for viewing by appointment.
