The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.
Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.
I dreamed of such a boat the HR 42 for a long time.
In the year 2000, I became aware of an advert offering the HR 42. The family came together to discuss the future of our sailing. I finally sold my Contest 32 to fulfil my dream.
We have sailed in the Mediterranean Sea and anchored in Israel, France, Italy, Turkey, Greece..... Now I'm 77 years old and not as young as I was!
So I decided, after the boat hadn't been moved for 2 years, to sell the boat with a heavy heart.
General historical details on the HR 42 taken from Hallberg Rassy’s online data section for older yachts is available on request.
Hallberg-Rassy 42 (E) was built from 1980 until 1991. A total of 255 hulls were built. She is admired for her clean flush deck and numerous boats have sailed around the globe. Well known Hallberg-Rassy 42E sailors include John Neal from the USA with "Mahina Tiare II" and Rollo Gebhardt from Germany with "Solveig IV". In the beginning, only the ketch rig configuration was offered. Later the sloop version was introduced and in the end almost only sloops rig 42E were built. Mast position was the same, but the sloop had a taller mast and larger genoa sheet winches. The 42 (E) is an Enderlein design and not to be confused withthe Frers designed Hallberg-Rassy 42 (F) that was built between 1991 and 2001.
