The Hallberg-Rassy 37 was built from 2003-2012 and won boat of the year in 2006. This German Frers designed vessel is known for being an excellent offshore cruising boat and is now a sought after brokerage vessel. Borealis is hull #60 and is a particularly fine example of the Hallberg-Rassy 37; she features a center cockpit and a two-cabin mahogany interior. She was built with an American electrical package and, like all Hallberg-Rassys, has a comprehensive breaker panel at the navigation station. Borealis is easy to single hand and is extremely well equipped for extended cruising in remote areas and includes solar, wind generator, watermaker, SSB and Iridium Go, diesel heater and full cockpit enclosure, tender and outboard, excellent ground tackle, extensive spares, and plenty of storage. She has been well maintained, undergone numerous upgrades in recent years, and is ready to sail away.

From Hallberg-Rassy’s own plastic plant, all HR hulls are built to Germanischer Lloyds specifications whereby the glass laminated is carefully laid up by hand utilizing high grade isophtalic polyester resins and a isophtalic gelcoat to resist osmosis. The hull below the waterline consists of a solid reinforced glass fiber layup transitioning above the waterline by utilizing Divinycell PVC foam, which insulates the hull against heat and cold. The deck, coachroof and cockpit are of sandwich construction, solid in parts, and fully laminated which encapsulates the hull to deck joint forming a one piece hull. All interior parts such as tankage are then passed through the companionway for installation, which means they can also be removed should it ever be necessary. Under the solid mahogany compression post, a metal beam is cast into the hull as a stiffener to provide reinforcement to provide for the mast to be stepped on deck thereby eliminating possible water intrusion. The oversized stainless steel rudder post is precision mounted on self aligning bearings for low friction in all situations. Hull color is the traditional Hallberg-Rassy white with blue coaming, sheer and boot stripes.
