This Hallberg Rassy Rasmus 35
An outstanding example of Hallberg Rassy Rasmus is a Blue Chip cruising ketch. She is from the much-acclaimed Swedish Boat Yard. The Rasmus 35 has a traditional long keel. This keel configuration makes her a great passage maker in all weather conditions. Wheel steering and a centre cockpit with a fixed front screen and aft cockpit enclosure add much-needed protection in calmer Northern European waters. This beautiful yacht has had an outrageous amount of money spent on her since 2015, including all-weather synthetic teak decks. Built-in 1978, she has been recently reborn thanks to work recently completed on her.
This Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus 35 offers six berths and two cabins, including the saloon. She has up-to-date navigation equipment, bow thruster, and diesel cabin heating. Early viewing of this well-presented yacht is highly recommended. The forward cabin has a V-berth with infill to make it into a double berth, storage under the berths, an opening deck hatch, and a hanging locker. Aft of the forward cabin are the Heads with an electric freshwater flush marine toilet with black water holding tank, washbasin with pressurized hot and cold water, and shower, all pumped to a grey water holding tank. Opposite the heads is another hanging locker. Aft of the Heads is the main saloon with a U-shaped settee to Port. The saloon has a mahogany interior with light blue upholstery and large windows, making it light and airy.
The upholstery was renewed in 2015. The saloon table drops to make a double berth.
Opposite the saloon is the linear galley with a Spinflo gas cooker with an oven, grill, and two burners—a stainless sink with hot and cold pressurized water, a mixer tap, and a 12v fridge with a freezer box. The saloon has a Flat screen TV/DVD 12v/240v with aerial on Mizzen mast & amplifier at chart table and Fusion entertainment system.
The galley is the navigation station with a large chart table with various instruments and room to store books and charts.
Steps lead up to the central cockpit area with a solid protective screen and canvas enclosure. The central part can be removed quickly when sailing. They are steps down to the aft cabin with a double berth and a tiny portable loo. She has Eberspacher heating fitted new in 2017 with an outlet in the stern cabin, main saloon & forward cabin. The centre cockpit provides easy deck access and is safe to sail from.

History and Construction:
Ollie Enderlein, a leading Swedish designer of elephant yachts of the 1960s, designed the Rasmus 35 yachtSeven hundred sixty yachts were made between 1967 and 1978. The name “Rasmus” is the God of Winds in Germany. The design of the Rasmus 35 was way ahead of its time. It was the first sailing yacht in the world with a windscreen, making her centre cockpit very well protected while keeping her elegant lines. This was, in fact, the blueprint for the Hallberg-Rassy concept.
The first two Rasmus were built entirely of mahogany, each taking a year to construct. The hull and the superstructure were made of GRP from hull number three.
The Rasmus 35 also has a powerful engine. These essential critical points and the timeless lines make this yacht still pleasing today. She is a timeless classic and will be as attractive decades from now. In other words, this is a genuine Halberg Rassy.
The current owner has continued this restoration but has to sell due to ill health. Well worth viewing if you love traditional long-keeled yachts.
