Hallberg Rassy 43, 2002 cutter rig for sale. Fully equipment with everything required for Blue water sailing. We reached Bocas in Panama and fell in love with the location, so have decided to stop sailing and place our much loved Hallberg on the market and start and environmental research project on land for www.goesfoundation.com.
Panama is out of the hurricane zone, so you can sail and enjoy the place during the summer months. You also have the option to go through the canal to the Pacific, or cruise the Caribbean. Boat services are all available at Linton or Shelter Bay Marina at the start of the canal. Currently we are in Red Frog marina, probably the best marina we have been in in the whole of the Caribbean.
Copepod has just had the annual service for anodes, coppercoat activation, hull polish and engine service, we also took the opportunity to have a full hull and mast survey, a copy of the report is included. Copepod is on offer at 40,000 usd below the market evaluation for a quick sale.

Aft cabin with a proper double bed mattress, centre seat and single bed. The sails are stored under the double bed, and batteries, AGM 700amps, 12v to 220v inverter are next to the batteries. Raymarine, type 2 linear self drive is also under the bed. The aft cabin has its own en-suite heads and power shower.
There is storage under the wash hand basis and behind the shower, this is where the Katadyn 5 litres per hour reverse osmosis unit is located. The unit was selected because of its simplicity and reliability, but also because it only draws 5 amps, so it can be operated without the requirement for a generator. There is also a manual handle in the event of all systems failure, so you will never run out of drinking water.
From the aft cabin to the navigation table, you pass a bookcase and the main switchboard. The main saloon is finished in solid teak wood, table and carpets. In comparison to coastal cruising boats, the hallberg does not have as much room, this is a safety issue. You have lots of hand holds to keep you safe. Volume boats can be dangerous when at sea. There is a welsh miners paraffin safety lamp. We use the lamp on night passages to save power, but also because it is a warm red light and does not cause night blindness. In port or anchor, it helps to keep the mosquitos out of the cabin. The companionway, is fitted with a removable mosquito net and all main hatches are fitted with screens.
A water cooled air conditioning unit is fitted under the sea berth in the main saloon, The Galley is fitted with a Tyler stainless steel very heavy duty gas cooker, with 2 x burners, and hot plate, with grill and oven. Adjacent is the fridge, and behind the navigation table is a deep freeze. We also use an induction hob when in harbour. In addition there are 2 x desiccant air dryers for use in harbour when on shore power.
Forward cabin has a double bed, and lots of storage under the bed and in solid teak cupboards. There is an ensuite heads and shower, and a door to seperate the forward cabin from the main saloon. Perfect arrangement for two couples or family.
Hallberg Rassy GRP construction, white hull and teak deck. The deck has not been sanded or aggressively cleaned,deck treatment has been used on a regular basis to keep the deck in almost perfect condition. The recipe for the deck treatment is a modified version from Hallberg with an additional anti wetting and sunblock. It has been used for the last 6 years and the deck is now better that it was when we purchased the boat.
All through the hull fittings all replaced 2017, hull epoxied and copper coated. Copper coat has only been washed never sanded so good for anothe 10 years. Spare anodes for about 5 years.
When you sail copepod, there is no noise from any creeks or groans, you only hear the sound of the waves and the wind. You will never see stress cracking around chain plates on a Hallberg HR43, the boats are solid and safe.
