Matilda is a beautiful Hallberg-Rassy 36 that has been lightly used and thoughtfully maintained. She has been a Pacific Northwest summer cruiser since being delivered by ship and commissioned in Seattle.  There are only 655 hours on the Volvo engine.  Her equipment list includes Webasto diesel heat, Raymarine elctronics, Simrad/Robertson hydraulic autopilot, 2000 watt inverter/charger, Balmar 100 amp alternator, Gori folding propellor and Lewmar electric anchor windlass. Her center cockpit layout with signature HR “windscreen” and soft dodger provides excellent protection on the inevitable cold day beating up Admiralty Inlet or across Georgia Strait. Below decks, her beautifully finished mahogany interior is warm and inviting, with ample storage space for long term cruising and a well conceived, functional layout.

MATILDA's condition is best described as "superb."  Here interior shows "near new".  The bilges are clean, engine room spotless, upholstery stain free and like new, carpet clean and rubber backing soft, and woodwork is ding and stain free.  There is no corrosion of interior or exterior metals.  Her decks are smooth and thick.  Sails are excellent.  Electronics are original, there is minor cosmetic crazing in the three overhead Lewmar hatches.  The side ports are craze free.  Hull and cabin sides are scratch free and glossy.  One would be hard pressed to find a nicer sixteen year old Hallberg-Rassy anywhere. 


The Hallberg-Rassy 36 is one of Europe's most popular cruising yachts. A total of 606 of these capable, well constructed vessels were built during the production run. MATILDA is hull No. 544 of this series.  Designed by German Frers, the HR 36 was built under supervision by Germanischer Lloyd and delivered with a CE certificate and a CE plaque for category A (unlimited ocean voyages).

On a record breaking high temperature day in late April, I had the privilege of delivering MATILDA from Bellingham where she's spent her entire life, to our sales dock on Lake Union in Seattle.  It was a "full circle" trip for me.  In 2001, while working for West Coast Yachts, the then Hallberg-Rassy dealer, I ordered this boat "on spec."  The waiting list was almost two years for a new boat, prices were rising, and demand for this ideal Northwest cruiser was very high.  I specified all the proven, quality options needed for Pacific Northwest use.  Two months before this boat was delivered, the current owner purchased this new boat from me.  After shipment from Sweden and commissioning by Sound Rigging in Seattle, I sailed with the owner up to Bellingham on a brilliant, sunny day.

Sixteen years later, I retraced our track back to Seattle.  Remarkably little has changed with the boat.  The owner really did a wonderful job with upkeep and maintenance.  Pride of ownership is obvious.  It gave me great pleasure to be aboard such a well cared-for and loved Hallberg-Rassy that I helped deliver so many years ago.
