General Overview

The Rasmus 35 is often dubbed as the first production sailboat to come from Hallberg-Rassy, a name thats become one of the most respected and prestigious in the world of cruising yachts. With a design from Swedens Olle Enderlein that was well ahead of its time in the late 1960s, the boat has enjoyed a large following with an incredible production run of 760 hulls spanning 12 years.

With its full keel and center-cockpit layout the boat was designed for long distance cruising from the outset. Rig options came in both ketch and sloop configurations, and of particular note is her well protected cockpit which featured a fixed windscreen which was a trendsetting innovation in its day.

Through the years the Rasmus 35 has proven herself with numerous and regular circumnavigations under her name and continues to be a practical choice for extended voyaging, able to swallow large amounts of gear and accommodate a decent crew count without being cramped. Also a trademark for Hallberg-Rassy is a generously sized engine which makes cruising life a little easier.

General Layout

Probably the yachts most defining trait is its ample stowage and accommodations spanning three separate cabins in a centre cockpit layout not bad for a 35 footer. The mahogany interior would have you want to check twice to be sure that the boat is fiberglass from belowdecks.

Each cabin features two berths accommodating a total crew of six in relatively spacious comfort, something rare to find in a 35 footer. In the forepeak are twin v-berths, further aft is a separate head with a locker area opposite. The main saloon features a large seven foot dinette which can be lowered to form a double berth. Opposite this area is a well equipped galley.

The separate aft cabin, which always provides a well appreciated luxury of privacy during extended passage-making, must be accessed externally from the center cockpit. It holds two berths which can be set up as a queen bed or two singles.

The cockpit not only being well protected due its center location, has a fixed windscreen, and additionally the cockpit could be optioned with a fixed ceiling instead of the standard folding dodger for further protection .

General Construction

The hulls were of solid laminate fiberglass with molded in longitudinal stringers and molded fiberglass tankage. The deck and cabin house is of fiberglass cored with one inch thick polyvinyl foam which has merits for lightness, stiffness not to mention acoustic and thermal insulation. Mating the two in the area of the hull to deck joint are many layers of overlapping fiberglass laminate on the internal corner of the hull and deck. On the exterior of this area the two moldings form a bulwark which is sealed with plastic filler and topped by a teak cap rail.

Iron is used as ballast, the 5,500 pound casting is encapsulated in fiberglass, and the rudder stock and fittings have been cast in bronze. All workmanship in the hull, deck, rudder, and chainplates were of high quality, enough to meet Lloyds standards.

Hull 101

This boat is hull 101, It is in sound condition and is leak free. Awlgripped Top Sides in very good condition. Marelon Through-hull fittings. Bottom has never had blisters but was barrier coated and re-finished in 2006, bottom remains in very good condition.


Hallberg-Rassys tradition of having powerful engines fitted is always helpful for extended windward passages and reassuring in a storm. In this case the Volvo-Penta MD21 diesel is rated at 75hp but we also note in real world circumstances where the output must be sustained the MD21 can only manage 42hp.
