Hallberg-Rassy 372: Cruising World Sailboat Show 2012
The Hallberg-Rassy 372 is classic-looking from the waterline up, but sports a thoroughly modern underwater profile. "Boat Review" from our January 2012 issue.
With nearly 9,000 keels laid over five decades, Hallberg-Rassy Yachts of Sweden can rightfully proclaim itself to be one of the world’s premier boatbuilders. The company’s new 372 carries all of the brand’s signature trademarks—the raised trunk cabin, rub strake, varnished bulwarks, teak decks, and windshield—in an aft-cockpit configuration.
Although classic-looking from the waterline up, the 372 sports a thoroughly modern underwater profile. The relatively moderate length-to-beam ratio and tapering stern guarantee that the boat will be well mannered in blustery conditions.
The two-cabin/one-head interior configuration is perfect for a boat this size. The fit and finish of the light mahogany is superb. A luxurious owners cabin lies aft, and there’s an unusually long V-berth in the forward cabin. The U-shaped galley is suited to true offshore conditions. Generous stowage can be found throughout the boat. A full-size nav station will appeal to the navigator in us all.
This level of quality doesn’t come cheaply, but ultimately, the 372 should prove to be a sound value in terms of safety, comfort, ongoing maintenance costs, and strong resale value.
