Although she is a comfortable cruising boat, she wins races in tough competition. In Tjörn Runt 2012, one of the largest inshore races in the world, the 412 not only won her class among 48 boats, she was even first to finish in her class, among racing boats. The winning boat had in-mast furling with FatFurl. While others talk the talk, this one walks the walk. This shows that a comfortable cruising boat can win the most demanding race.
The modern sail plan is made for easy handling, with its greater mainsail and only slightly overlapping genoajib. There is an option of a self tacking jib. A powerful backstay tensioner is fitted as standard. The rig has triple swept-back spreaders, the top shrouds go out to near the toe rail and the lowers are positioned close to the superstructure. That gives an easy passage on deck, good sheeting possibilities for the headsail, as well as ideal support for the mast. An optional code zero or gennaker is flown between the masthead and a removable bowsprit.
Below deck the interior is roomy and bright. The saloon is bathed in natural light. There are double large skylights in the saloon, and the boat has four hull portlights, of which two are in the saloon. Hull portlights give you good contact with the surroundings while seated. All side port lights are opening and the same large size as on the Hallberg-Rassy 54. The galley is big, U shaped and seagoing. Both sofas in the saloon are a full two metres long. There are options of one or two heads. There are options of one or two separate showers with PlexiGlass doors.
