Hallberg-Rassy 400






Double wheel and double shovel

The big news that jumps to the eyes of the boat with aft cockpit (the largest with this configuration “aft cockpit”) is the double wheel of the rudder and the double blade: the 412 relied instead of the single “wheel” and a single blade. This allows for more cockpit space and better visibility. A polished teak cockpit table is available as an option. The ropes and rigging are deferred in the cockpit, allowing the use of electric winches, without taking up interior space. There are “bins” for excess lines so that everything is always clean and tidy. The mainsail sheet trolley is located in front of the typical Hallberg-Rassy sprayhood.

Hull and deck

Laminated hull construction: Isophthalic gelcoat, vinylester-based barrier coat. Hand lay-up method, insulated with Divinycell PVC foam against heat and cold, except in the keel area which is solid laminate. Lead keel bolted down with stainless steel bolts. Rudders are carefully mounted for high sensitivity. Deck and canopy areas and even the cockpit are in sandwich construction, in solid parts, laminated to the hull.

Deck and deck accessories

Solid teak handrails along the entire length of the superstructure. Sturdy bow siding. Stowage underneath for fenders. Two strong bollards at bow, stern and midships. Ombrinals on each side that drain rainwater into the sea just above the waterline to avoid staining the hull. Rails for genoa and mainsheet with blocks. Eight portside portholes, six of which can be opened. Pulpit and stern have opening for easy access on board. There is a separate gas locker with stowage for two 6kg PK6 gas cylinders. Bathing platform in the transom.


As regards the layout of the interiors, three configurations have been conceived: the first with a master cabin served by a bathroom at the bow and two double cabins (and a bathroom) at the stern, while in the saloon there are two sofas, one L-shaped and one long, at the bow of the galley. In the second one, the starboard aft cabin is well replaced by a technical compartment (and bathroom with shower), the starboard sofa is replaced by two armchairs. The third layout differs from the second only for the presence of the sofa instead of armchairs in the dinette.

As standard, the boat has two sofas in the saloon, an aft cabin with a double bed, and a bathroom with shower. All interior trim is light mahogany khaya silk matte finish. Built-in cabinet doors with invisible hinges, real wood floors painted with inlaid holly strips. The salon ceiling is covered with mahogany strips and the ceilings in the rest of the boat have a light coating. High quality fabric covered cushions, on all berths 12 cm thick sandwich foam that rest on unpainted boards and well ventilated to prevent condensation. All portholes have blinds, also present under the deck doors in the sleeping cabins.
