Hallberg-Rassy mk1 mk 2

Postby wilvanlonden » Tue Feb 21, 2017 8:51 pm

I am planning to buy a HR-29.

Studying pictures I found there are different cockpit locker lids.
So somewhere on this forum I read:
- The Year of construction should - if possible - be 1985, or later, as from this year, the cover of the lockers were built in GRP with a better water flow and the position of the genoa winches were optimized.
Can somebody tell me if the plywood locker lids leak more rainwater?

So I guess you could qualify as a make 1 and a make 2.

Are there other differences on different year models?

I read there have been used three motors for the HR29:
Volvo MD7B, 2002 and 2020.

kind regards,

Will

I have a HR29 from 1984 ( hull 166). It’s still the original engine 2002 and it performs well. I think the HR29 ‘s from ’83 had the MD7B engine.
The cockpit locker lids and seats are indeed in plywood with teak veneer. I had to replace them in 2010 because the veneer became too thin and came off the plywood in several places. Also one side ( hullside) from the plywood is not protected. So there was some water ingress in one plywood seat. Despite these problems the lids were not leaking. As long as the lid seals and the wood is OK there will be no problem I think.
The plywood from the new seats and lids is protected on all sides and the teak is now 8 mm thick

I didn’t know the winches where repositioned.

Best regards
Werner

Hi Will,
Also the design of the bases of the foresheet winshes are different. The mk2 allows a smoother setup as the winshes are set a little bit more outwardly.

Yeah the mk2 is a much smoother setup.
