With over 600 built, the HR36 designed by Frers and Hallberg-Rassy is one of HR's best selling models with a production run from 1989 to 2003. Windrush is hull #573.
Small enough for easy handling, yet big enough to go anywhere, any time, the HR36 is an extremely well thought out and comfortable performance cruiser.
Like all HR's, Windrush carries the European CE Certification Category A, Unlimited Ocean Voyage plaques. She is a safe, dry, fast, and beautiful yacht that can easily be sailed short handed.
Windrush is an exceptionally clean and well maintained vessel. Her interior woodwork and upholstery as well as her exterior, including the teak deck, are all in beautiful condition. She has only been lightly used since we delivered her new here on the Chesapeake Bay in 2003 and she truly shows well.
She is carefully outfitted and equipped for coastal, ocean or bay sailing with only the highest level of quality options to ensure sailing performance, safety and comfort. Large inventory of spare parts and thoroughly documented maintenance records on board.
Some of her upgrades: Raymarine navigation suite including C90 radar/plotter with AIS, 300Ah house battery bank, 50amp Mastervolt charger, Mastervolt inverter, Viking 4 person liferaft, Raymarine VHF 240, EPIRB, running rigging just to mention a few.

Windrush has been sailed from Newport, RI to Key West, FL offshore and inside the ICW, and from the Chesapeake Bay to Puerto Rico, the USVI's, the Bahamas and back to the Chesapeake.

Windrush is without a doubt the nicest Hallberg-Rassy 36 available on the market today.
