This Hallberg Rassy 42 is an original (Rassy/Enderlein), sloop rigged, version of the popular GRP long-distance cruising HR42 marque and has successfully completed two circumnavigations. The second of these, with the current owners, was mostly two-handed and covered over 60,000 nautical miles. She is for sale with much regret as the owners now feel that they have reached a stage in their lives when long-distance cruising is behind them. 'Sea Bunny' is well equipped for ocean cruising but is equally at home in local waters.
