Hallberg Rassy 53. "Blue Raven" has crossed the Atlantic and Pacific, has been well maintained and is fully equipped for extended voyaging. She is ready for further serious world cruising. Designed by Germán Frers, this 2002 HR53 combines modern styling and a performance hull but still retains that timeless elegance that is the hallmark of the range. The three cabin interior layout with owner's master stateroom aft, provides the space and comfort of a luxury floating home. Beautiful teak finish with new leather upholstery, smooth, rounded, warm to the touch and soothing to the eye, the interior finish of these boats is truly superb. The layout is designed to allow unimpeded access from bow to stern, in a smooth line with no obstructions. The engine room is a generous, walk-in compartment, with ample room to work around the Volvo 145HP engine. Slipped, anti-fouled and hull polish completed June 2017.
