The 94 Kutter was a step away from the conventional sailing yachts that Hallberg Rassy produce. The hull shape was to be a tribute to the traditional Swedish fishing craft with a flared bow and canoe stern. The design proved very popular with yachtsmen from more Northern Climes and 195 were built between 1981 and 1995. This particular model is hull #2 and was displayed at the debut launch of the boat at the London boat show. She is in particularly good order and has been well maintained by current and previous owners. Major works carried out include the introduction of a Yanmar 55hp diesel in 2002, replacement hot water system, heads plumbing and holding tank, replacement teak and holly flooring, all in 2005 and replacement teak decks in 2006. New electronics including wireless wind speed/direction, Raymarine Axiom touch screen GPS/Plotter and Raymarine i40 speed/depth added in 2017/18. New Profurl genoa furling system added in 2018 along with new back and forestays. New stack pack for main.
