I can’t say enough about Hallberg-Rassy 46’s in general. It’s tough to imagine a finer bluewater cruising sailboat. I’ve have had the pleasure of logging thousands of miles, delivering Hallberg-Rassy 46’s in Sweden, up and down both coasts of the U.S., and in Mexico. This is far and away one of the nicest bluewater cruising boats available. Comfort, performance, stowage, and excellent construction details on this proven design are just a few of the reasons that the Hallberg-Rassy 46 is such a timeless and sought-after world cruiser.

FREEZING RAIN’s hull is white gel coat with off white coach roof and blue sheer, boot, and coaming stripes. There are brass rub strips at cleats and lifeline gates and brass strakes on the rub rail. The keel is an external lead casting bolted to a sloped fiberglass keel stub. The hull and deck are insulated with closed cell foam. The decks and coachroof are overlaid with high quality Burmese teak with a caprail on raised bulwark and teak handrails on the coach roof.

The cockpit is protected by a factory-installed hard dodger with tempered glass. Varnished companionway chart tables are located on each side of the companionway. On deck stowage is in three large lockers. Forward is a top opening chain locker (825 litres) with shelf and room for fenders, lines and other gear. The cockpit locker (725 litres) is below the starboard seat. There is a very large (960 litres) full beam locker located at the stern accessed by two deck hatches. All lockers drain overboard.

Stainless-steel stanchions are mounted on the raised bulwark to maximize deck space and minimize deck penetrations.  FREEZING RAIN has solid stainless-steel handrails run from the stern pushpit to the midships boarding gates.  A hinged solar panel is mounted on the starboard side.  Uncoated wire rope, double lifelines run forward from the midships gates to the bow pulpit.
