The enormous 8.6 cubic meters aft deck lockers may store a RIB dinghy. There is a large hydraulic fold out bathing platform. An optional retractable gangway can be folded away into the lazarette. Together with the cockpit locker and the anchor locker in front there is 10.1 cubic meters of deck storage.
The deck is clean and uncluttered. All skylights and hatches are flush mounted. There is a sun deck integrated into the aft cabin roof. The anchor winch is concealed under the deck level. There are options for hydraulic under-deck cutterstay furler and under-deck genoa furler. There are in total eight mooring cleats on the top of the toe rail, of which the spring cleats are double on each side.
The cockpit is unusually large; 3.10 m long, that’s 55 cm longer than on the Hallberg-Rassy 62. There is a large, fixed, teak cockpit table. All essential sailing control functions are handled from the cockpit by a single sailor using the push of buttons already as standard equipment. Optionally there is a hydraulic cutter stay and even a hydraulic code zero or furling gennaker available, furling at the push of buttons from the cockpit. The washboard is elegantly and easily lowered into a hidden storage. The cockpit is very well protected by the Hallberg-Rassy typical soft top wind screen or hard top.
Below deck living areas have lots of natural light. All in all there are no less than thirty-one (31) portlights and skylights in the boat. There are six hull windows. Hull windows were introduced by Hallberg-Rassy back in 1976. You will look out through the four hull windows when sitting down and a person of normal length will look out through the large saloon portlights when standing up. The interior offers twelve choices in 5 sections, creating layouts available for all tastes and needs.
The engine is unusually well sized, even for a Hallberg-Rassy. It is a 6 cylinder Volvo Penta D6-300 with 300 HP and has 669 Newton meter torque at 2 500 RPM. Tanks are generous too for long range with 1 800 liters of diesel fuel and 1 300 liters of fresh water. In calm water with a clean underwater body, the fuel consumption at 1600 RPM and 7 knots is 7 liters per hour, one liter per nautical mile, which means around 1 800 nautical miles range!
