1986 Hallberg-Rassy 94 Kutter

Southampton, Hampshire


The Hallberg-Rassy 94 Kutter is charming motor sailor with classic Swedish lines. Her canoe stern and long keel provide a very easy motion whilst underway.

TE KAKAPO is a good example of the class, benefitting from the more desirable wheel steering arrangement, Vetus engine installation and reliable auto pilot configuration.

Builders Comments




Hallberg-Rassy 94 Kutter was built during 1981 - 1994. A total of 195 hulls were built. The Hallberg-Rassy 94 Kutter is a charming motor sailor and a departure from the range of other Hallberg-Rassy yachts. The hull reminds of the beautiful lines of a traditional Swedish fishing boat, but has a more pronounced keel. The 94 has a fuller hull than other Hallberg-Rassy designs from this era and a canoe stern and a full keel.



The cockpit has a steering house, which has been available in two different versions with different angling of the windscreen. The sail area is rather moderate for a 31 footer, but she sails surprisingly well for her type. She tacks well even in a light breeze without help of the engine. There are Hallberg-Rassy 94s who have crossed the Atlantic. The Volvo Penta engine is generous. The interior has four very good berths and ample stowage.'
