Quote from the Swedish yachting magazine Båtnytt:
"The carpentry is excellent with well-made laminated wood edgings and counters, fine doors and louvered cupboard fronts. Also the choice of material - light, smooth mahogany - scores points. The engine installation has good air intake and is well sound insulated. The maneuvering ability is excellent, as well as the sailing qualities. Hallberg-Rassy 34 has the touch of a racing boat, heels, speeds up with a comfortable weather helm and has a good response on trimming. A splendid boat for modern cruising sailors."
Svenska Dagbladet, Sweden, May 6th, 2000:
"Characters of world class. Passionate sailors will be happy with the Hallberg-Rassy 34. The boat makes good speed in light breeze, has power in its movements, sails with a pleasant pressure on the rudder and is very well balanced. The best sides of the Hallberg-Rassy 34 will be found in very bad conditions. With almost 40% of the weight in the keel the boat has a low centre of gravity and is extremely stiff. The boat has well known quality, very good second hand value, a performance, which is hard to beat, and lovely craftsmanship. However her lines are the best. In a beauty contest she would win. The best 34 footer in the world is also the most beautiful. Personally I would not hesitate. I would be pleased to put myself into the waiting list for the Hallberg-Rassy 34."
Segling, Sweden, No 3 2000 about the Hallberg-Rassy 34:
"A wonderful sailing boat with a good piece of workmanship, a boat with feeling, character and capacity. Stiff, fast, nice to sail and a wonderful behaviour in the sea. She costs a lot of money, but has low depreciation and is therefore especially worth buying."
