SwiftSure Yachts is advertising the Hallberg-Rassy 46 Allura for sale at an asking price of $420,000. The 2003 build is lying in Portland, Maine, at the Maine Yacht Center, where showings are available by appointment.
Allura is built for short-handed coastal and ocean cruising. There is redundancy in key functions for reliability, along with pushbutton conveniences in the hydraulic main and genoa furling, powered winches, bow thruster, hydraulic vang and backstay.
For comfort on board, features include a hard dodger, full cockpit enclosure, air conditioning, dual forced air diesel heaters, a fridge and freezer, and a Spectra watermaker. The interior is finished in warm satin mahogany with off-white port coverings.
According to SwiftSure’s team, the sailboat’s electronics were recently upgraded. There’s now a with Furuno multifunction display in the cockpit, along with Raymarine instruments, AIS, VHF radio and redundant autopilots. Powering the electronics is an electrical system with an 8 kw genset, 12- and 24-volt alternators, battery chargers, a shore power transformer to accommodate 110 or 220 volts, and a bank of AGM house batteries.
Also noteworthy is Allura’s history as a proven cruising platform. The original owner had the yacht delivered to Seattle and then cruised the Pacific Northwest for three years. Then, Allura sailed to New England. The current owner bought the yacht in 2008 and has used her during summers in New England, with the yacht being stowed inside for all but one winter (when Allura was stored outside, fully covered, during the pandemic).
The current owner also prepared the yacht for a trans-Atlantic trip that had to be canceled during the pandemic, but the yacht remains ready to undertake ocean passages and long-distance itineraries.
Some additional key features aboard Allura include a 2019 Highfield RIB that’s 10 feet long with an 8-horsepower Yamaha engine, and redundant autopilot drives. The brokerage house says there’s an extensive maintenance history and lists the boat in “very good condition.”
“I can’t say enough about Hallberg-Rassy 46s in general,” the broker noted. “It’s tough to imagine a finer bluewater cruising sailboat. I’ve have had the pleasure of logging thousands of miles, delivering Hallberg-Rassy 46s 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.”
What kind of equipment is in the galley? Allura has a Force Ten stove and oven with three burners; a Xintex propane solenoid switch with a fume-detection alarm; an Ewave microwave oven and a Hela turbo cabin fan.
