Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus ?

Are there any Rasmus owners aboard the Forum? I am looking for opinions of the boat as I may be able to have one of my own in a few weeks and seek experienced owners' advice. I was about to buy a very fine Bayfield 32C, when the Halberg-Rassey Rasmus 35 sloop owned by a family friend became available. Thanks,
David in Northern Florida

Celestialsailor here on the forum has an HR 35 but I can't say if it is a Rasmus. I haven't been aboard yet to check it out.

He might be chiming in to greet you soon.

kind regards,

Re: Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus ?

Never owned one but researched them carefully and consider the HR line in general to be excellent boats. They are well designed and wee made, resonable performers and comfortable. I would have bought one of their +/-40' models if I had found the right deal or could have afforded it.

My main reservation was the teak decks. Look great but like any teak decks they only last so long before major overhaul or total replacement is required. I have seen a few that came without but not many.
The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
