Broker’s Comments

A very well used Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus 35 – her current owner, who is sorry to see her go, has moved on to a bigger yacht. Built to a very high standard in her day but now in need of some tinkering and love. She has had continual upgrades throughout her life including recent nav. gear, heating and engine. A clever layout with a nice deep and safe enclosed cockpit with storage galore and fabulous engine access under the sole. Aft cabin accessed via its own companionway to the aft of the cockpit. Down the main companionway, you have a large saloon and linear galley with the saloon table dropping to allow for extra accommodation. A great yacht for someone looking for a project.

Owner’s Comments

DONA LILI was built in 1972 in Sweden. She has had a long and interesting life, at one time living in the Mediterranean as a charter boat, she’s also spent time in the Caribbean. I bought her in 1997 and sailed her back from Majorca to UK. She was and still is a good seaboat and while these days she would be considered small, she is more than capable of bluewater cruising.

We lived aboard as a family of 4 for 5 years, the deck stepped mast and centre cockpit gave us plenty of space. She has been a faithful companion for the past 23 years and it’ll be sad to part with her. Over the years I’ve made her more user friendly and she’s now easy to sail and performs well in all but the lightest winds. She is long keeled so not the most maneuverable, but in choppy waters that long keel quietens her down nicely. We are often sailing when other boats have dropped their sails and are heading for home. The solid pilothouse and windscreen provide excellent shelter when it gets a bit wet!
