The Yard:

In our modern time when boat building has not been spared series building or mass production, it is good to know that the Hallberg-Rassy yard existed in the days when boat building still meant wood and individual boats. In view of this we have specialized, from the earliest days, in comfortable sailing boats suitable for longer voyages. The company history started with Harry Hallberg back in 1943.

Harry Hallberg

What today is called Hallberg-Rassy Varvs AB was originally two yards.

Harry Hallberg, who lived between 1914 and 1997, commenced his boatbuilding career as a boy of 14, constructing boats made of wood. In 1943 he opened his own yard at Kungsviken on the island of Orust in Sweden.

At first, he built his wooden boats more or less by instinct. Different possibilities were discussed with the customer and solutions pointed out. Blueprints hardly existed at all. It was said that: “Someone who cannot build a boat without drawings cannot call himself a real boat builder”.

The first boat to be built in a series was the Folkboat. He also had good success with Kungskryssaren (Swedish for the king’s cruiser), not to be confused with the Finnish King’s Cruiser which has nothing at all to do with Hallberg-Rassy. The Kungskryssaren was constructed in the mid-50’s. Both the Folkboat and Kungskryssaren was also built by other yards.

Harry Hallberg’s most distinguished contribution was his understanding of the advantages of using GRP and to build boats in a series. In 1963 he was one of the pioneers in serial production of sailboats using GRP. He was the first successful builder of GRP hulls with wooden superstructure in a series. His P-28 was a great accomplishment and in many aspects a forerunner.

Christoph Rassy

Christoph Rassy was brought up in Bavaria in the south of Germany by a lake named Starnberger See. As a young guy, he in his spare time built models of boats and also real boats. He wanted to learn more about boats and became an apprentice at a small yard for wooden boats in southern Germany.

Soon he wanted to build and sail larger and finer boats and wanted to live by the sea. He thought that Sweden, a large country with lots of water, was bound to build large and splendid boats. Consequently, he wrote to many Swedish boatyards, requesting work. One yard wrote that they would welcome him, and in 1962 Christoph moved empty-handed and with a bicycle as his only possession toNötesund, Sweden to build boats. During the day he built boats for a boatyard that has now been out of business for many years.
