Built by Hallberg Rassy in 1989, "NORDIC TERN' is a later example of this popular motor sailor which has proven to be every bit as capable as her larger stablemates.
The Kutter 94 offers the best of both worlds combining a powerful 43hp Volvo turbo diesel with good sailing performance while offering the kind of build quality one has come to expect from Hallberg Rassy. With a partially enclosed wheel house and long keel design the boats are perfectly suited to sailing on the West Coast of Scotland. Inventory highlights include:
- Raymarine Plotter and Radar.
- Raymarine Navigation Instruments.
- Professionally painted topsides and sheerband.
- Fully restored teak deck, recaulked and sanded 2017/18.

What The Builders Said....
Hallberg-Rassy 94 Kutter was built during 1981 - 1994. A total of 195 hulls were built. The Hallberg-Rassy 94 Kutter is a charming motor sailor and a departure from the range of other Hallberg-Rassy yachts. The hull reminds of the beautiful lines of a traditional Swedish fishing boat, but has a more pronounced keel. The 94 has a fuller hull than other Hallberg-Rassy designs from this era and a canoe stern and a full keel. SAILS SURPRISINGLY WELL FOR HER TYPE
The cockpit has a steering house, which has been available in two different versions with different angling of the windscreen. The sail area is rather moderate for a 31 footer but she sails surprisingly well for her type. She tacks well even in a light breeze without help of the engine. There are Hallberg-Rassy 94s who have crossed the Atlantic. The Volvo Penta engine is generous. The interior has four very good berths and ample stowage.'
Although regarded as the baby of the fleet the Hallberg-Rassy 94 Kutter still boasted the build quality and attention to detail for which the Swedish builders are renowned.
