Designer's Comments

When the 43 was introduced in 2001, Germán Frers said:

The Hallberg-Rassy 43 represents an evolution of earlier models, specially the HR 42F.

Compared to the earlier design the first thing that becomes apparent is the relatively longer waterline thus a slender hull. This longer waterline would bring immediate improvements in speed and sea-kindliness.

The hull construction follows Hallberg-Rassy's current and well proven practice of building solid bottom layup and cored topsides and decks for very good results in strength and longevity.

Compared with the 42F the interior layout has been improved, adding a separate shower on the forward toilet, good headroom in the walk-through to the aft cabin and overall polishing of details and layouts.

I expect the Hallberg-Rassy 43 to become a classic in her range and style with very good sailing capabilities and volume inside. Clean uncluttered decks and a well protected cockpit, typical of the Hallberg-Rassy Line.


The boat is CE certified by Germanischer Lloyd and delivered with a CE certificate and a CE plaque for category A (unlimited ocean voyages).
