ALBA is a Hallberg Rassy 42 F MkII built in 2001 - one of the latest examples of this Frers design. From new, there have only been two owners and the boat has been impeccably maintained. Alba has just completed a seven year circumnavigation, sailing over 40,000 miles and is still in fabulous condition. The specification of the equipment on the boat is first-class and she is a very comfortable live-aboard cruising yacht. The unique aspects of this HR42F include a cutter rig with a roller furling for the staysail; a water-maker that produces 45 gallons per hour; an elegant and functional stern arch; two arm chairs in the saloon and there’s even a home movie theater with an LED projector and a 48 inch roll away screen.
The current owners are leaving an impressive inventory of spare parts and a comprehensive tool kit allowing the new owner to do any maintenance job on the boat. The galley is fully stocked with pots, pans and melamine crockery.
This is truly a boat that you could step on-board with your personal gear; buy some provisions and sail around the world. Some of her highlights:
Alba offers a fantastic opportunity to get into an exceptionally well-outfitted Hallberg-Rassy 42 that is up to date and in turnkey condition. If you are looking for a true blue water cruiser that is ready to go, give us a call today.

Hallberg-Rassy yachts are designed with safety and ease of maintenance foremost in mind. Nothing exemplifies this more than the engine room. This is a very spacious engine room which is accessed by two large, insulated and rubber-sealed doors. This provides far superior access to both the main engine and the generator, as well as to all auxiliary equipment, including the pressure water system equipment and hot water tank, than that afforded on most other cruising yachts of this size.
