The Hallberg-Rassy 42E, so designated in honor of its designer Olle Enderlein, predates its immediate successor, the Hallberg-Rassy 42F (designed by German Frers), and was built from 1980 to 1991. This particular boat is Hull 91 out of 255.
It is one of the purest expressions of the Hallberg-Rassy ethos and features all of the firm’s signature design elements–a center-cockpit layout, a flush teak deck crowning a high-freeboard hull, a distinctive fixed windshield, and a well-appointed mahogany interior.
The accommodation plan is straightforward for a boat of this type, with the exception of the great cabin aft. This features a split single and double berth arrangement rather than one large island or athwartship double. The split-berth arrangement is preferable when the boat is underway, as two persons can sleep more comfortably in a seaway in separate lateral berths.
