Whereas I am partial to the Conyplex yard, the Hallberg-Rassy is a remarkable yacht. We just completed a 1,000-mile passage
(Thailand to Sri Lanka) with a very knowledgable skipper
on board as a guest and he couldn't stop marveling at how stiff and fast our boat is (made the passage
in 7 days , 10 hours - 12 hours of motoring - which isn't bad for a 40,000-pound boat with a 37-foot waterline) and how much stowage space we have. Our 3-cabin layout has a head
in the bow with 2 cabins just aft, which worked out perfectly when we cruised with our 3 small kids
. They all have families of their own now.
We don't have too many complaints about our boat except the wiring
was done poorly but most of that has been fixed. Getting any support from Conyplex has been difficult but our boat's designer
, Dick Zaal, has been fantastic about answering my emails. I've never sailed on an H/R but I imagine they're awesome.
Good luck, fair winds and calm seas.
