Broker Remarks

Hallberg Rassy 26 sailing yacht for sale. 'Festina Lente' is a nice example of a Hallberg Rassy 26 and has the benefit of a new Volvo 12hp engine (in 2010), Coppercoating, self-tacking jib and Webasto heating. This Hallberg Rassy model is well balanced and has excellent directional stability. The transom-hung rudder is semi-balanced, with the forward third of the blade extending along the keel, which contributes to her sailing virtues.

She is worth viewing and all serious offers will be considered. Viewing strictly by prior appointment only. Contact us today for further information and to arrange a viewing!
