|This 1994 Hallberg-Rassy 53, a German Frers-designed sloop with cutter rig, is now for sale.
Built in 1994 as hull #4 by the prestigious Hallberg-Rassy boat yard in Ellös, Sweden, known for its exacting standards of quality and safety.
She is in exceptional condition after minor refits in 2009 and 2010, and a major refit in 2013/2014. This 2013/2014 refit included - deck, rigging, furler servicing, replacement of - switches and radar/ antenna post, bearings and seals, skin fittings and ball valves, deck fittings, dorade vents, and re-varnishing of teak, and repainting of hull stripe.
She is formally registered in the Netherlands, EU VAT is paid and she is now available for sale in the SE Asia region.
Her present owners sailed her in 6 years from Europe through the Pacific to SE Asia and have now decided to pursue other interests.
She is a well-performing, safe and very comfortable blue water cruiser with all amenities on board, and with her push button sailing very well suited for a small crew. Just having circumnavigated three quarters of the globe, in her current state she truly is fully equipped for long ocean passages.
Australian tax not paid.
