Hallberg Rassy - 36 MkII

Sailing BoatsHallberg Rassy36 MkIIUnited Kingdom

LADY KATE is well presented early example of the MKII and benefits from significant upgrading in recent years.


** Note - A further 140+ high resolution photographs are available on request **

The Hallberg-Rassy 36 is arguably one of the companies most successful designs with over 600 hulls produced during a 14 year production run. The MkII was introduced in 1994 to modernise the well proven design, improve comfort and provide increased volume below decks. Since their introduction the HR36 has proven to be an ideal family coastal cruising yacht, small enough to be easily handled by a single handed sailer while large enough to be capable to blue water cruising in comfort.

LADY KATE is a lovingly maintained example presented in ready to launch condition with a comprehensive inventory, reluctantly offered for sale because of owner mobility problems. With significant upgrading in recent years her inventory highlights include:

Lying in the Oban area viewing is strictly by prior appointment.


I have sailed all my life and for 15 years shared an aft cockpit Moody 38S. When I retired I decided to purchase a Hallberg-Rassy 36MkII. This is a fantastic boat ideally suited to the Western Scotland and is robust, safe, good performance, roomy and comfortable and is superb in the challenging conditions of Scotland. My wife and I have circumnavigated Ireland and been to Orkney and beyond and we have always felt safe--it is the crew that is the weak link.

Throughout our ownership she has wintered ashore and has been professionally maintained on an annual basis, we invested in upgrading the boat and her systems with the intention of having her for a decade or more. However I have recently suffered a number of health mobility setbacks and have been advised that I need to sell; it is with deep regret that she is on the market.


Hallberg-Rassy 36 was built during 1989 - 2003. A total of 602 hulls were built. Boat No 1-256 from 1989-1994 were the Mark I, No 257-602 from 1994-2003 were the Mark II. Mark II has a developed transom with integrated bathing platform. The Mark II is 30 cm wider at the transom compared to Mk I. At the same time the aft deck locker was improved from a higher level than the deck on Mark I to flush on the Mk II. The walk deck also got wider, as well as the superstructure of the aft cabin. Inside this has given the newer Mk II model more room, more lockers and wider berths in the aft cabin. Although the hull length was increased with 44 cm (1' 5'') on the Mk II, the maximum sailing waterline was increased by no less than 67 cm (2' 3''). Deck lengths remained the same. Mast, keel, rudder and underwater shape as well as engine configuration also remained the same between Mk I and Mk II. An already good boat got even better and more contemporary with the Mk II version.

The 36 is a mid-range model. Small enough, yet big enough to go anywhere, any time. Designed and constructed by yachtsmen to combine the latest in technology and traditional standards, it provides comfort and nice lines as you expect from a Hallberg-Rassy.

The layout is very well laid out and allows for excellent comfort and unimpeded passage from one end of the boat to the other. The sturdy mast support comes together with the main bulkhead and not through the table or sofa. There is a big chart table in the boat's heading direction where you can sit comfortably.

She has surprising performance for her type, the result of very thorough work of the hull parameters and shape by her designer, Germán Frers. The moderate V sections result in a pleasant motion at sea normally found in larger yachts. She has won her class in the ARC over the Atlantic as well as local races.
