Halberg Rassey 31 1995.
The HR 31 Mk I is a true Hallberg-Rassy, with the same high level of quality and elegance as her larger sisters.
The interior woodwork and joinery is done in the selected mahogany that has become a Hallberg-Rassy trademark. The interior is extremely well laid out for her size. A full size navigation table, a spacious galley, saloon, large head and shower compartment, and two private staterooms gives you the volume and space in our Hallberg-Rassy 31, that you would normally find on a much larger boat.
The cockpit is comfortable and easily accommodates your guest, and has generous capabilities.
The interior is exceptionally well laid out giving an air of spaciousness unusual for a boat of this size. There are two separate double cabins, one forward and one aft, also a large toilet aft. With a full size saloon, ample galley and complete chart table, it offers the amenities and comfort of a larger yacht. There is excellent protection from the weather in the aft cockpit. The seats are two metres long. Part of the starboard seat lifts up to give access to a very generous stowage area.
For a yachtsman not interested in the latest racing gimmicks but in a proper 9.5 metre boat with a more than respectable speed, with good cruising attributes, the HR 31 will be very hard to beat.”
