Hallberg-Rassy 69 is the greatest yacht ever built by Hallberg-Rassy. This flagship can be handled by a family crew, through the concept of Effortless Sailing through Push Button Operation. At the same time there is room for deckhand or skipper if desired.
The exterior exudes graceful elegance with sweeping lines. The deck is clean and completely flushed forward of the mast, with commodious deck locker spaces. The cockpit is unusually large, has two L-shaped sofas, a solid wooden cockpit table in high-gloss varnish and an optional fridge.
The cockpit is well protected by the Hallberg-Rassy windshield or hardtop. The helmsman’s position is unexposed and has good protection through a proper coaming around.
The interior is located on a level from bow to stern, important for moving freely, whether while sailing or at anchor or in port.
In the saloon, eight hull portlights let in natural light, while blinds can easily be pulled if transparency or sunlight is not desired.
The interior design options enable a walk-in closet, a cabin for a deckhand and VIP guest cabins.
The engine is well-dimensioned for a Hallberg-Rassy. It’s a six-cylinder Volvo Penta D6-300 of 300 hp with a high and flat torque with an incredible 790 Newton meters of torque at 2,100 rpm.
The engine room is large and has room for a variety of technical equipment. It’s also well sound insulated and easily accessible for service and maintenance.
Designed by Germán Frers Naval Architecture, the first Hallberg-Rassy 69 will sail in the winter of 2023/2024.
