The Hallberg-Rassy 69 is the largest yacht ever built by the Swedish shipyard. It will be unveiled as a world premiere at boot in Düsseldorf (20-28.1.2024). SeaHelp is traditionally represented with its own stand in hall 10, stand F55. Visitors can pick up their free copy of the hot-off-the-press SeaMagazine 2024 here.

It was probably only a matter of time before the renowned Swedish shipyard Hallberg-Rassy built larger boats, as the market is demanding them. While Nautors Swan in Finland, for example, currently builds sailing yachts up to a length of 78 feet (maxis even reach 128 feet), friends of the luxury yachts from Ellös on Orust in Sweden have had to make do with boats between 34 and 65 feet in length.

Those who were lucky enough to acquire a 62 from HR (built until 2011) or one of seven of the 64 Hallberg-Rassys built between 2010 and 2018, which are now being replaced by the even larger 69.

From this winter, friends of push-button sailing who like to travel with a small family crew will finally be able to order a larger yacht from Hallberg-Rassy, which is now 69 feet long.

The new Hallberg-Rassy is actually a “72”, as the sailing yacht is an impressive 22.2 meters long with the bowsprit

Although the hull length of the usual comfortable blue water yacht is specified as just under 69 feet (20.96 m), the maximum length with bowsprit is actually a proud 22.22 m, which means that the new “69” from Hallberg-Rassy is actually a “72”.

However, shipyard boss Magnus Rassy is not one to talk big; his yachts have long since achieved cult status around the world, and true to the motto “You don’t have to be wet from top to bottom to be properly sailed”, the new HR69 also offers a stable construction, a well-protected cockpit, lovingly and practically executed woodwork, a powerful engine and large tanks.

Hallberg-Rassy yachts never go out of fashion, no matter how old they may be. They have long since achieved cult status with their fans all over the world

The design of the Hallberg-Rassy models, which have been around since 1943 (when the shipyard was still called Harry Hallberg), has changed moderately over the years, but the yachts have always remained true to their line. In other words: somehow a Hallberg-Rassy yacht is never overly modern – on the other hand, the yachts from Ellös, north of Gothenburg, never become unfashionable, no matter how old they may be.

This also applies to the new 69 from Hallberg Rassy: the exterior radiates a graceful, timeless elegance with its curved, harmonious lines. The deck is clean, and thanks to the size of the boat, the cockpit and space on board are also generous. Inside, there are two L-shaped sofas and a large, solid wooden cockpit table with a high-gloss finish.

As HR sailors like it, the space at the helm is well protected by a sufficiently high coaming

The cockpit is well shielded from wind and rain by the typical Hallberg-Rassy windshield or a hardtop, and the space at the steering wheel is well protected by a sufficiently high coaming, just as HR sailors have appreciated for generations.

The interior runs completely on one level, from bow to stern, which is good for freedom of movement on board, whether sailing, at anchor or in the harbor. Eight hull windows provide plenty of natural light inside the boat, while the windows also offer a good view outside (when standing).

If you wish, you can integrate a walk-in closet, a cabin for a crew member and a VIP and guest cabin into the boat design.

The built-in engine from Volvo Penta is well dimensioned with 300 hp, the engine room is walk-in

The engine is “unusually well dimensioned” even for a Hallberg-Rassy, says shipyard boss Magnus Rassy about the six-cylinder Volvo Penta D6-300 (which was also installed in the HR 64), this engine was chosen because it has 300 hp “with an incredible torque of 790 Newton meters at 2,100 rpm”.

The walk-in engine room is large and should offer space for a lot of technical equipment, should be well soundproofed and easily accessible for service and maintenance.

The first Hallberg-Rassy 69 was completed just a few weeks ago – just in time for the world’s largest boat show under canopies, boot in Düsseldorf, which begins on January 20, where it can be officially viewed for the first time.
