The Hallberg-Rassy 55 is the new Hallberg-Rassy model for 2013. The 55 connects closely to the successful 64, with lots of natural light through large tempered glass portlights in the saloon, as well as four hull portlights and seven flush mounted skylight hatches, of which three are in the saloon alone. White painted wooden panels in the saloon alcoves further contribute to the spacious and inviting feel.

The whole boat is laid out for great comfort for a small crew, with a very bright and inviting interior. The interior is in one level throughout the boat.
A series of 55s are under construction. Please appoint a time for viewing at the yard in Ellös, Sweden. The yard is always worth a visit.
