Above is the very first rendering of German Frers’ new Hallberg-Rassy 400 (13.06 x 4.18 m), which replaces the recently discontinued 412. The boat will be officially unveiled in August.
HALLBERG-RASSY 400, DECK
The big novelty that jumps out at the aft cockpit boat (the largest with this “aft cockpit” configuration) is the double rudder wheel and double blade: the 412 relied instead on the single “wheel” and a single blade. This allows for more cockpit space and better visibility.
A polished varnished teak cockpit table is available as an option. The lines and rigging are deferred in the cockpit, allowing the use of electric winches without taking up interior space. There are “bins” for excess tops so that everything is always neat and tidy. The mainsail sheet carriage is located in front of the typical Hallberg-Rassy sprayhood.
HALLBERG-RASSY 400, INTERIOR
Regarding the layout of the interior, three configurations have been thought of: the first with a master cabin served by the bathroom in the bow and two doubles (and one bathroom) in the stern, while in the saloon there is space forward of the galley for two sofas, one L-shaped and one long. In the second the starboard aft cabin well replaced by a technical compartment (and bathroom with shower), the starboard sofa replaced by two armchairs. The third layout differs from the second only in the presence of the sofa instead of armchairs in the dinette.
Dual options for interior woods as well: classic mahogany or light European oak.
