Comments by her Designer

As the top of the range of high quality offshore cruising boats produced by this world-renowned builder, the HR 62 represents years of experience and a synergy of efforts on the part of Hallberg-Rassy and our design office to produce the best possible yacht of its kind.

The high performance, well balanced, strong hull of moderate draft is matched by an efficient and easy to handle sail plan.

The areas reserved for leisure on deck are very generous and the interior has plenty of natural light and ventilation.

A new owner will immediately be able to appreciate Hallberg-Rassy’s know-how in building and fitting out their yachts, as much as their design and performance in all conditions.
