Broker Comments

The Rasmus is often dubbed as the first production sailboat to come from Hallberg-Rassy, a name that's become one of the most respected and prestigious in the world of cruising yachts. With a design from Sweden's Olle Enderlein that was well ahead of its time in the late 1960's, the boat has enjoyed a large following with an incredible production run of 760 hulls spanning 12 years. With its full keel and centre-cockpit layout the boat was designed for long distance cruising from the outset. Rig options came in both ketch and sloop configurations, and of particular note is her well protected cockpit, which featured a fixed windscreen, a trendsetting innovation in its day. Through the years the Rasmus 35 has proven herself with numerous and regular circumnavigations under her name and continues to be a practical choice for extended voyaging, able to swallow large amounts of gear and accommodate a decent crew count without being cramped."TIMELESS - The Rasmus 35 also has a powerful engine. All these important basic points, together with timeless lines makes this yacht pleasing still today and she will also be as attractive in decades from now. In other words, this is a genuine Hallberg-Rassy" - Hallberg-Rassy
