Hallberg Rassy 42E

Not many for sale out there at the moment, that I can find, but 255 were made between 80-91. I have a couple of questions.
Tell me, what is the headroom in the salon in these boats?
Do they have blackwater tanks?
And for those of you that own them, tell me all the pro and cons with them! I know it is a broad question and that the preferences are different for everyone, but I would like to hear from you that live aboard them, or have sailed them a lot. Why should I choose this over say HR43 or HR46 or similar, and I am not talking price or year when they were made. I want to hear it all!
Thank you!

Re: Hallberg Rassy 42E

Look up John Neal with Mahina Expeditions. (Mahina Expeditions conducts sailing and navigation training and expeditions in the South Pacific and offers offshore sailing seminars)

He had an HR42 for a long time and has had an HR46 since the mid-90's. He's got a really good understanding of all of the HR line both old and new.
