Hallberg Rassy 400 – Underway

Designed by Argentine master German Frers, the Hallberg-Rassy 400 has retired the 412 within the Swedish shipyard ‘s range. Unlike its older sister, albeit slightly, the rudder wheel doubles in this boat, as is customary in newer models.

Stern cockpit and double wheel

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 tops and rigging, aboard the

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.

For the interior, there is plenty to do

As for the layout of the interior, on the
Hallberg-Rassy 400
three configurations have been designed: the first with a master cabin served by the bathroom in the bow and two doubles (and one bathroom) in the stern, while the saloon has space in the galley 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.
