Hallberg-Rassy 40 £325,000 (TAX Not Paid)

Superb opportunity to own a remarkable yacht from Hallberg-Rassy. OOJOO is one of the last HR 40 MK II yacht built and benefits from a comprehensive Blue Water specification.

OOJOO is for sale by her first owners who took delivery in Ellos before completing an Atlantic circuit. With her electric furling rig from Selden and electric powered winches OOJOO is very easily managed by a crew of two. The solid build of the Hallberg-Rassy 40 inspires confidence in all weather conditions.

The interior is beautifully crafted in European Oak with settees on both sides of the spacious saloon and the popular centreline berth in the aft cabin. Life onboard the yacht is very comfortable with the Whisper Generator and 12v EchoTEC water maker allowing extended periods of cruising. Her extra Freezer also supports longer periods away from marinas and Blue Water cruising.

OOJOO is currently being professionally managed by the respectable AYLines marina and boatyard near Bodrum, Turkey.

Owners Comments

'It started with a dream, to sail from Ellos to the Caribbean, then to the Med by way of Bermuda and the Azores.  We had three conditions when selecting our boat - a strong build that would keep us safe even under extreme conditions, a design that could be easily handled on ocean passages by just the wife (a novice sailor) and I, and all the conveniences of a modern home to adventure in comfort.  For us, Oojoo's HR 40 Mk2 design ticked all these boxes and more.  Whether sailing on perfect days in the Virgin Islands or plowing through heavy seas in the middle of the Atlantic, Oojoo lived up to her well deserved Hallberg-Rassy reputation.  We will always cherish the many wonderful memories we made onboard.'
