HALLBERG-RASSY 40C – SAILING
A design that is both classic and modern
The exterior unites two worlds in an elegant way. There is no doubt that this is a contemporary boat from 2020. At the same time it is also obvious for any sailor that this is a true Hallberg-Rassy with everything it means, such as brand identity, security and continuity. The bow is upright for long sailing waterline and top sailing performance, with an integral and elegant bowsprit for a light wind sail, anchoring and a bow ladder. The sheer line is classy and elegant.
Also the transom is upright and very full. This gives lots of living space, huge storage and a long sailing waterline.
Of course the boat has twin rudders for full sailing control and safety. Needless to say, there are typical Hallberg-Rassy solutions, such as:
- very well sheltered cockpit
- an integral and protective rub rail
- a heavy lead keel with low center of gravity on a deep bilge for tough conditions
- a proper Bulwark with teak toe rail so that rain water is drained below the water line, avoiding staining the hull.

Also the rig is modern and easy to handle. There are no runners needed, not even with an inner hard wind sail. The headsail is only slightly overlapping, which makes tacking very easy. There is also an option for a selftacking jib. The jib furler has an under deck drum. On the integral and elegant bowsprit a light wind sail may be used. The top shrouds and the lowers are separated on deck, making it easy for a passage on deck, easy to sheet the headsail, and providing a wide and stable base for the mast. This is a Hallberg-Rassy invention. The boat has a powerful backstay tackle with 1:48 purchase as standard, that makes it easy both to increase and decrease backstay tension.
