Manufacturer Provided Description

The HR42 is a superb cruising yacht with sparkling performance that is a pleasure to sail and will give pride of ownership indefinitely. The hull was designed for its seaworthiness and to give good sailing; it was not built to a formula or to maximize racing rules. The deck is laid for correct functioning rather than appearance. The fact that it looks so good is a bonus. With regard to equipment you will see typical Hallberg-Rassy solutions, plus some innovations which represent real improvements. Hull and deck are GRP, built under supervision of Lloyd's Register of Shipping. Laminate construction of hull: NGA-gelcoat and isophthalic polyester is used. Hand lay-up method, insulated above water line with PVC-foam against heat and cold. Strong under-floor reinforcements. The rudder is carefully mounted for sensitive rudder feel. Strong engine foundations of GRP for effective sound insulation. Deck and coachroof areas and also cockpit are of sandwich construction, solid in parts, laminated to the hull. The cockpit is protected by a strong windscreen with opening center section and sprayhood over front part of cockpit. The sprayhood can be rolled away neatly into a smart protective cover. On either side of sliding hatch there are useful teak covered work surfaces, ideal as chart tables, etc. All interior woodwork in light mahogany with a matte silk finish. Floor is varnished teak with inlaid holly stripes. The settee offers comfortable seating. On the starboard side the backrest can be lifted to enable total width to be used for sleeping accommodation. Generous dimensions of standing and running rigging avoid fatigue during unrestricted ocean sailing.
