The Germán Frers designed 64 is Hallberg-Rassy’s new flagship. She is a world cruiser for a family crew.

The elegant deck is clean and uncluttered. The essential sailing control functions can be handled from the cockpit by a single sailor simply using the push of buttons which are standard equipment. The cockpit is very well protected by the Hallberg-Rassy typical soft-top wind screen or hard top. Its enormous 2270 gallon aft deck lockers have the capability to store a RIB dinghy.

Below deck living areas have lots of natural light. There are six hull portlights.

The engine is unusually well-sized, even for a Hallberg-Rassy. It is a 6-cylinder Volvo Penta D6-300 with 300 HP and has 669 Newton meter torque. Tanks are generous for long-range cruising with 476 gallons of diesel fuel and 344 gallons of fresh water. The walk-in engine room is large, has room for lots of technical equipment, is well sound insulated and allows for easy maintenance.

Frers speed diagram for the Hallberg-Rassy 64 says the boat will achieve 9.2 knots boat speed at just 10 knots of true wind. This yacht is a real mile eater.

Q: I have an early ‘70s Catalina 27. The keel bolts look pretty good. My question is, why not glass over the keel to bond to the hull rather than changing the bolts if, or when the bolts are too far gone? I haven’t seen anything on this, so could you discuss? Full-keels are ...read more
