The German Frers-designed Hallberg-Rassy 43 was the one boat out of this year’s fleet of 30 that most effectively brought together all the complementary features that make a seaworthy, ergonomic cruising boat. From gasketed deck lockers that drain to underwater lines that make her “track like a locomotive, ” the Hallberg-Rassy brought it all together. She’s a Divinycell-cored boat, and BOTY judge Ralph Naranjo was impressed with her alacrity under sail compared to older H-R’s that he’s sailed. “Her performance was that of a Frers pedigree,” he said. “On the Hallberg-Rassy, everything seemed so logical to me: where things were placed, where my movement would go,” said BOTY judge Carol Hasse. “If I were going to take a boat anywhere around the world, and I mean anywhere, for me it would be the Hallberg-Rassy.”
