A few words about yacht for sale, Hallberg-Rassy 62 CONTRARIAN
June 17th, 2022
From 2004, Hallberg-Rassy 62 CONTRARIAN is a fantastic platform for sailing far and is currently for sale. She is like a Tardis below decks – with room enough for 10 in 4 cabins and acres of storage. She has an automated rig, recent sails, a hardtop that delivers protection for crew on long passages and a 3.6m BRIG on electric davits to make forays ashore a simple exercise.
To show you what we mean, here is a walkthrough video showing how she looks today –
Refitted in this ownership, she comes with recent networked Raymarine electronics – running on an i70 and Hybrid g5 plotter/radar with stations both on deck and below. Also full communications and audio from Fusion with flat screen TVs, both in the owner’s stateroom and the main saloon.
This year, Hallberg-Rassy 62 CONTRARIAN has had a birthday with a re-dowel of the teak decks, replacement of any seacocks that were not 110% and a review of her systems to ensure that she is good to go in her next ownership. Her owner’s fleet has now expanded so he will not use her again, hence the need for this pitstop to ensure that her new owner has a yacht that is ready to sail.
Hallberg-Rassy 62 CONTRARIAN has Climma reverse cycle air conditioning as well as full central heating, both of which have been reviewed in this ownership. This makes her suitable for both warm and northern water sailing. With her capable German Frers hull design and robust Hallberg-Rassy build, she is intended to sail far.
In this ownership she has sailed throughout the Mediterranean and has delivered fast passage times and comfortable sailing. She is compact enough to be welcome in most ports and is easily handled with her bowthruster, large rudder and Gori propeller, replaced in 2018.
She will accept both 110V and 220V and she is used to sailing on the other side of the Atlantic, her charging systems by Mastervolt have all been renewed and updated. Her reliable Volvo TAMD 63 250hp diesel engine had a major refit in this ownership and is ready for many more sea miles.
Hallberg-Rassy 62 CONTRARIAN must now find her new owner and start a new sailing programme in new hands. She has a thoughtful and well-conceived bluewater specification and in all 3 of her ownerships has performed brilliantly.
She would benefit from the removal of her antifouling, which although well adhered is now showing signs of significant build up. Her current asking price at €775,000 has movement and we encourage you to come and have a look at this fantastic bluewater cruisingyacht for sale – from the Island of Orust, now lying at our Shipyard in the UK in Lymington.
