Broker’s Comments

The Hallberg-Rassy 40 is a yacht built to go anywhere. She is a solid, modern and strong bluewater cruiser, easily handled by a couple. The layout offers an owner’s aft cabin with a double berth and single berth, a forward guest cabin with a v-berth, saloon with 2 x sofas, and a foldable table. Directly to port of the entrance is the galley and to starboard is the navigation table. A spacious heads with shower is located forward of the mast bulkhead. As expected aboard a Hallberg-Rassy, there is plenty of storage space and a (really) large engine room.

Hallberg-Rassy 40, JESSILU was originally used as a demo yacht by the Swiss Hallberg-Rassy agent. She has spent her summers in fresh water, been kept inside during winters and taken care of in the best possible way. Her current owner bought JESSILU in 2013 and had her transported to St Tropez, France in 2014. Thereafter, JESSILU was sailed to Tenerife where she has been used by the owner for day sailing. In April 2021 JESSILU left the Canaries and arrived at Berthon Scandinavia’s showing dock in Henån about 5 weeks later. This trip is approx. 2500 Nm, with a lot of “against the wind” sailing and with wave hights of approx. 6 m. The crew was very enthusiastic about JESSILU’s performance, great sea going comfort and really appreciated how well she treated them. Their general comment – she is a really great ocean-going yacht!

As already mentioned, JESSULI is now available for viewings at our showing dock in Henån, Sweden. Only 1 hrs 15 min drive from Landvetter airport. If you are up for a potential, comfortable and updated centre cockpit yacht, please give us a call!
