This HR 53 is a German Frers-designed sloop with cutter rig (permanent hydraulic furling cutter stay added 2009), built in 1994 as hull #4 by the prestigious Hallberg-Rassy boat yard in Ellös, Sweden, known for its exacting standards of quality and safety. She is in an exceptional condition after minor refits in 2009 and 2010 and a major refit in 2013/2014. She is formally registered in the Netherlands, EU VAT is paid. Her present owners sailed her in 6 years from Europe through the Pacific to SE Asia and have decided to let her go in the course of this year to pursue other interests. She is a well-performing, safe and very comfortable blue water cruiser with all amenities on board, and with her push button sailing very well suited for a small crew. Just having circumnavigated three quarters of the globe, in her actual state she truly is fully equipped for long ocean passages.
Sergio speaks fluent, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, English and French. He has sailed his own yacht for many years around the world and joined Simpson Marine in 2009. He manages Simpson Marine Thailand in a key sales roll and he brings a wealth of knowledge onboard to assist clients on all levels.
