1970 Hallberg Mistral 33

My Mistral was built in Sweden by the yards of Harry Hallberg in 1970, two years before Christophe Rassy purchased the Hallberg business and renamed it Hallberg-Rassy. BTW, my wife, Jahnn, recently had an article published in Good Old Boat magazine about the history of the Hallberg-Rassy yards.

Hotspur most likely was sailed here to the US from Sweden, since the boat wasn't imported here until 1972. It was then equipped and sailed to Scotland and back by a previous owner.

It's a boat that those who love classic yachts would enjoy, and those who dislike maintenance would abhor. It is a transition boat, and although the hull is solid fiberglass and the deck divinycell cored foam, everything else is mahogany and needs to be varnished, or teak.

So far I have painted the hull and cabin top, and will be painting the decks soon (a previous owner removed the teak decks). Everything else has been varnished several times. We're equipping it for a little cruising, and I've added roller furling, a large waste holding tank, and I'm about to install an electric windlass.

I, too, have posted several photos of our boat in the photo gallery.

My Boat

Argo is a Lancer 29 all set up for live aboard. I know I can because I have for 9 months. Rather be there than at home. If it wasn't that I am in love with my wife I wouldn't have a house.

28' S2

"Ragtime" is a 8.5 M (28') S2 that I have slightly modified. She now has a larger engine (13 hp) to replace the old 6.5 hp Yanmar.

She now has Roller Furling to make single handing easier. I plan to go to the Bahamas in December this year. With 3'10" draft, I anticipate few problems with depth.

My boat

I own a Taipan 28. A couple of dozen of these fiberglass hull, wooden masted, heavy-keeled cruisers were built in Hong Kong in the early 70s. Many of them are still around - either here in HK or in the UK. The boat is very similar in appearance to the Cheoy Lee Newell Cadet/Offshore 27.

Have a look:

Looks like a classic S&S

I have rebuilt her(twice)
and
added a winged keel instead of the cb.
cruised her , mostly engineless,
over 95.000 miles(so far)

I've got a 1984 Beneteau Idylle 13.5 (44'3") I live aboard and sail the Gulf of Mexico during the summer. Winetrs are spent in the Virgin Islands. Great boat with plenty of room, very comfortable sea boat, quite easy to sail short handed.
Sold the Beneteau and bought a 36' Prout Catamaran
