The Hallberg-Rassy 46 is renowned as a reliable, high-performance blue-water cruiser, meticulously crafted using top-tier materials. The design of the boat, featuring a full hull, a keen entry point, and a slender stern, contributes to its commendable sea-keeping properties, allowing it to sail smoothly on all points of sail. The center cockpit provides a secure and advantageous spot for the crew, enabling them to oversee the sails, instruments, and surrounding seascape with ease.


CELESTE is well-equipped for long-distance and live-aboard voyages, furnished with a traditional slab reefing main, lee cloths, and an extensive selection of safety gear. The interior of the boat is divided into three cabins, two bathrooms, and a spacious, well-lit saloon space. The interior, finished with high-grade teak and new upholstery, ensures comfort and safety, whether at sea or docked at a port.


The present owners of the CELESTE have recently undertaken a significant refit, encompassing a comprehensive overhaul of the engine and engine room, an upgrade of instruments, rigging, and the addition of a new generator. As a result of these enhancements, the CELESTE stands as a prime example of the Hallberg-Rassy 46 model, making it an ideal choice for those planning on extended cruising journeys.
