Hallberg-Rassy 39 was built from 1991 until 2003. A total of 209 boats were built. Number 1-54 (between 1991 and 1994) were the Mark I, number 55-209 (between 1994-2003) were Mark II. The main difference between Mk I and Mk II, is that the Mk I has a traditional transom and the Mk II has a developed transom with built in bathing platform. The rest of the hull, keel, rudder, engine and sailplan remained the same."...this yacht has the proper makings of an offshore cruising yacht. Below, the mahogany interior is flawlessly joined and meticulously finished, a hallmark of Hallberg-Rassy yachts... Not readily visible are the tell-tale signs of Hallberg-Rassy above-average engineering and building methods, lurking unseen behind the fine joinery below. The builder's reputation for excellence translates into good resale value... My experience with Hallberg-Rassy has convinced me that sailboats can make beautiful, safe homes. If comfortable passages, solid construction, elegance and attention to detail make sense, then so does the Hallberg-Rassy 39" - Cruising World Magazine, November 1995.
