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.
