The Hallberg-Rassy 36 is arguably one of the companies most successful designs with over 600 hulls produced during a 14-year production run. The MkII was introduced in 1994 to modernise the well-proven design, improve comfort and provide increased volume below decks. Since their introduction the HR36 has proven to be an ideal family coastal cruising yacht, small enough to be easily handled by a single-handed sailor while large enough to be capable to blue water cruising in comfort.

ATHERINA is a later ‘Scandinavian’ version of the class, boasting as standard many of the features offered as expensive optional extras in earlier built examples. Commissioned from new by the current owners she has been specified for short-handed offshore cruising. Inventory highlights include:

• Preventative epoxy treatment applied to underwater hull in 2016.

• CopperBot type antifouling system applied below waterline in 2016.

• Volvo Penta D2-55, 55hp. 4-cylinder, naturally aspirated, indirectly cooled engine.

• Brunton AutoProp, H5 3 blade, bronze. Factory rebuilt 2016.

• Aquagen, dual wind and aqua generator, permanently fitted for use as wind generator.

• Solar Panel, single 40W panel.

• Magnetronic DCC4000 Battery Control System.

• Bilge level alarm system

• Raymarine navigation instruments, including C120 MFD.

• Furuno Digital WIFI radar scanner

• Raymarine AIS receiver

• 2x DSC VHF’s

• Selden Furlinmast in-mast furling system – lines lead aft to cockpit.

• Selden Furlex 300S genoa furler

• Removable inner forestay

• Upgrade backstay with adjuster.

The boat was surveyed for insurance purposes during the spring of 2019, a full copy along with over 200 additional images are available upon request.


After sailing a different boat in the Mediterranean for many years, we chose to buy a Hallberg Rassy 36 because we felt she was the ideal boat for us to sail in UK waters as we grew older, a quality, good looking boat with plenty of space for us and our crew, be they family or friends. With the vertical battened mainsail and all control lines led back to the cockpit, we had a boat that sails really well and could be handled by me on my own when necessary. ATHERINA has taken us to Scandinavia twice, and all around the UK, though you cannot beat cruising in the West of Scotland. Now failing health obliges us to let her go to someone new, who we hope will enjoy her as much as we have. She will certainly look after whoever buys her.



Hallberg-Rassy 36 was built during 1989 - 2003. A total of 602 hulls were built. Boat No 1-256 from 1989-1994 were the Mark I, No 257-602 from 1994-2003 were the Mark II. Mark II has a developed transom with integrated bathing platform. The Mark II is 30 cm more wider at the transom compared to Mk I. At the same time the aft deck locker was improved from a higher level than the deck on Mark I to flush on the Mk II. The walk deck also got wider, as well as the superstructure of the aft cabin. Inside this has given the newer Mk II model more room, more lockers and wider berths in the aft cabin. Although the hull length was increased with 44 cm (1' 5'') on the Mk II, the maximum sailing waterline was increased by no less than 67 cm (2' 3''). Deck lengths remained the same. Mast, keel, rudder and underwater shape as well as engine configuration also remained the same between Mk I and Mk II. An already good boat got even better and more contemporary with the Mk II version.


The 36 is a mid-range model. Small enough, yet big enough to go anywhere, any time. Designed and constructed by yachtsmen to combine the latest in technology and traditional standards, it provides comfort and nice lines as you expect from a Hallberg-Rassy.


The layout is very well laid out and allows for excellent comfort and unimpeded passage from one end of the boat to the other. The sturdy mast support comes together with the main bulkhead and not through the table or sofa. There is a big chart table in the boat's heading direction where you can sit comfortably.


She has surprising performance for her type, the result of very thorough work of the hull parameters and shape by her designer, Germán Frers. The moderate V sections result in a pleasant motion at sea normally found in larger yachts. She has won her class in the ARC over the Atlantic as well as local races.



The Hallberg Rassy 36 MKII was a development of the popular and successful MKI. Hallberg Rassy with the original designer German Frers listened to feedback and tweaked the design to suit the demands of modern buyers with a sugar scoop style transom, wider beam aft, wider side decks and increased internal volume.
