43'ft 4in

Hull number 138 of 181 Hallberg-Rassy 42s built, Legacy is a later model 42 and one of those boats that you just have to see to understand how nice she really is. With only light sailing in the Pacific Northwest, she shows minimal wear above and below decks.

Designed by Germán Frers, the Hallberg Rassy 42 combines the best of two different worlds. The irreplaceable feeling of fine craftsmanship and the unbeatable living standard aboard is still there. And the secure feeling of a heavier displacement boat with excellent sea-going qualities, especially in rough weather, shines throughout. The HR Frers 42 is a popular and comfortable cruising yacht for which distance is no object. For the sailor not interested in the latest regatta gimmicks but in a proper yacht with more than respectable speed, this is the one!

Factory hard top and “easy chairs” – Webasto diesel heat – recent Garmin electronics – Ample Power DC generator – Kato davits and AB RIB dinghy – Iverson’s Designs full cockpit enclosure
