Hallberg-Rassy 312 Mk II Yachts Sold

Hallberg-Rassy 312 Mk II sold

The Hallberg-Rassy 312 Mk II was introduced in 1986, becoming one of the finest on the market.

Hallberg-Rassy 312 Mk II recently had been re-equipped and upgraded professionally.
The first noticeable difference is the port lights, which got larger and moved up to the superstructure on today’s Hallberg-Rassy range, which gives a brighter saloon and a more incredible feeling of spaciousness. A new superstructure raised the headroom from 1.83 m to 1.85m. Now includes new teak decks, toe rails, deck hatches, and an improved working area. The original engine was a replacement for a Volvo Penta D1-30 diesel engine. The hull was epoxy-coated, and a new electronics suite was in the cockpit—electric anchor windlass, Side-Power bow thruster, holding tank laminated hardwood to tile. The toilet got separate and not all over the boat’s beam as on the previous model, and added a shower basin into the new toilet compartment. Recent mainsail, new spray-hood.

This Hallberg-Rassy 312 Mk II was a trendy model with over 650 boats produced and still is an incredible yacht capable of blue-water cruising.

This is a magnificent example of the ever-popular HR31. Halberg Rassy is renowned for its ability to build robust boats that sail and handle well. This is as good as they get and with the best specification imaginable. We have plenty of photos – please call,

Jeanneau 39 DS Yacht For Sale Sant Carles Marina Spain

Sant Carles Marina Tarragona Spain

A Spanish Marina in Catalonia, Sant Carles Marina Tarragona Spain

Sant Carles Marina is owned and operated by MDL, a British leisure and resort company. The only Marina they own outside the UK is a treasure for boat owners during the long summer months of Mediterranean warmth. This Marina is a couple of hours south of Barcelona. It’s not a huge Marina but has a good mix of power and sailboats.

Network Yacht Brokers Barcelona attracted a good number of listing from Sant Carles Marina, one of which finally came north to Port Ginesta Barcelona so that we can deal with potential sales daily. We had a busy day preparing the yacht to leave Sant Carles Marina, as the owner had not visited her in more than one year.

As this Marina is set slightly inland, surrounded by fields and marshlands, fouling is a particular problem. So regular washing of boats in the Marina is essential to keep the marine environment from a residence on your boat.

Jeanneau 39 DS Yacht For Sale Sant Carles MarinaMission accomplished for the Jeanneau 39 DS Yacht we now have for sale in Port Ginesta. We gave her a good scrub for the owner, who then journeyed up the coast to our home. She has a vast inventory, including electric winches, bow thruster, air conditioning, and a neat solar panel system to keep the start battery fully charged.

If you want a yacht with an interior best described as “as good as new”, please follow the link and look at this beautiful example. The photographs in the specification were taken by ourselves when she arrived in Barcelona in August 2021.

This Hallberg Rassy Rasmus 35

Front Hallberg Rassy Rasmus Yacht for sale outsideAn 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.

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.

Kum, the Hallberg Rassy 45 Yacht was built in 1991. She requires some work on the teak deck, but down below, her condition is exceptional. For a 30-year-old Yacht, all we can say is that this reflects the loving care of her two owners from new. The current owner purchased her way back in 1996. Sadly he used the yacht very infrequently, always staying along the Spanish Coast. This Hallberg Rassy has never been used for charter.
This is a very reluctant sale by the owner, who will accompany every viewing. Offers will be considered exclusively through Network Yacht Brokers.

Live aboard a pirate ship for sale Boats Information

Living on a Boat (Step 1)

Living on a Boat

As I search the web to ensure my take on the subject is unique, I see many exaggerated comments that are headline-grabbing hooks to get you to click and read. I would like you to read my article, but I will not say anything I have not experienced.

I have another post called Liveaboard a Boat that you might also find interesting.

Mindset to liveaboard

Lots to consider as to why you would choose a liveaboard lifestyle. You can probably step forward or backwards towards living on a boat if you question your motives carefully.lovely evening sunset Live-aboard

Do you suffer from depression or a phobia if you sleep in closed or small spaces? Most of us who enjoy boating is not worried; we find sleeping in a small cabin great, apart from sitting up in bed reading or getting in and out with a low ceiling.

If living in a confined space frightens you or triggers an alarm in your head, proceed with caution. You can overcome natural fears with logical thoughts, but if a fear of confined spaces turns you off, think again if living on a boat is for you.
My answer “I can very happily dig a hole in the ground and sleep, so long as I am warm, have a good airflow, I am happy and snug. I don’t need so much space when I am sleeping”.

Do you need lots of stuff on a boat?

This one is not so straightforward because most of us who live aboard accumulate loads of junk. Lockers fill before you know it”! The point is, can you live without your junk? “I don’t throw things away, I become very attached to my stuff, but I can live without it”. “I find the more I have, the more I want.” Strip back in your mind to the absolute minimum of what you need to survive. The answer should come back to a few food calories a day, access to clean, fresh water, and a feeling of healthy being. A feeling of the well is the goal for life aboard a boat.
Ok, apart from the obvious question, do I get seasick when I am in a confined place? Then, in my opinion, if the answer to that question is no, I don’t get seasick, you are good to go!

Plan A Location for your boat.

Based on considerations of your personal needs, for this article’s sake, not becoming a book, let’s say you don’t have any other location needs than to be near your work. On that assumption, you can live on a boat for a considerable time before you declare this a permanent life choice. When I lived on a boat, I gave myself six months. I was fortunate a friend gave me the use of an almost new 15-metre Jeanneau Yacht. The cost was nothing but looking after it while trying to sell it. I felt happy I had achieved my personal goal when I moved on. Could you have just moved back home anytime? The answer to that question is no. I didn’t have a home then and was transitioning from the UK to Spain. I make no apologies for never eating alone on the yacht. I went out to eat two or three times a day. Life was good!

Not to move away from the topic, but this is the point. I never considered telling the Marina I was a liveaboard. Somebody might have said something in a year or so, but maybe not. There are lots of ways to consider a timeline for your liveaboard declaration. Suppose you are a so-called “professional” who gets up and goes to a job away from a Marina daily for work and keeps a reasonably tidy profile. In that case, you can easily manage a couple of seasons without issues. The only issue is getting a post box, which can be tricky. Indeed, you need to register as a resident if you are abroad to stay legal.

Location Location Location

The location of your boat is an interesting point that we can dwell on a little. Living on a Boat can be much like living in a busy neighbourhood. You might be someone who keeps yourself reasonably quiet. At some point, you will start talking to others around the Marina. The odd thing is how long it takes to get to know people. And how uninterested people are with each other. You will surely notice others on boats when most are away or living at home (most mid-week times), but again, a few months R&R away from home is perfectly normal. Marina operators become aware of individuals who appear to be different. Perhaps your boat starts to acquire a liveaboard look. Lots of unused stuff lying around on the deck or looks a little untidy. The Marina might then question you about living aboard, but that could be a year or two from when you decided to make the boat your home. Have in your mind living on board is temporary, or be prepared to be rejected by many Marina if you declare this from the beginning.

What is the problem with living on my boat in the Marina?

Almost all Marina operations provide temporary space for individuals. Marinas could not cope if nobody went home. At peak times, almost every Marina struggles to provide adequate facilities for all berth holders. Therefore, if you are permanently living on board, you might be ejected and not understand why. On the positive side, most Marina operators look the other way to live aboard’s. As you become part of the Marina community, if you fit in with the look and feel of the space you occupy, you will most likely find no one cares or questions how long you stay on your boat. After all, it is not a concern, provided the Marina operator does not get complaints.

We have a very active liveaboard population in Port Ginesta, Barcelona. The Marina is close enough to the city for travelling to work each day, giving space and distance from the bustling city.

We recently moved to a bigger office and can now be found in the new part of Port Ginsta amongst the bigger yachts. If you want to become a yacht broker by joining our Group, please get in touch with us to learn more.
