A very well-presented and extremely lightly used single owner example of this multi award-winning design from Hallberg-Rassy. Set up for short-handed offshore and ocean cruising. She benefits from a fastidious professional maintenance regime and boasts an ideal cruising inventory.


With just one yachting industry professional owner since new, KOALA VII is a 2004 model (Hull No.25) example of the extremely popular German Frers designed Hallberg-Rassy 40 performance centre cockpit cruising yacht. Configured for effortless cruising in both warm and cold waters, she is a truly versatile vessel.

Her specification highlights include:
One-owned boat, professionally maintained since new
October 2020 servicing including antifoul, anodes, engine service and engine battery
Volvo Penta D2-55 engine, with low hours run
3-bladed MaxProp with spare 3-bladed fixed prop
Side-Power bowthruster
Selden in-mast furling system for mainsail with Lewmar electric winch
Versatile double & single aft cabin arrangement
Rare, optioned twin arm chair saloon layout
Webasto diesel fire hot air cabin heating
Raymarine navigation instruments including radar/chartplotter
Transom pole for radar antenna
Spars painted ? 2015
Sails replaced - 2010

Used by her owners solely for day sailing in and around Palma, KOALA VII has never been slept aboard, so her interiors are as new. Professionally maintained at all times, and unused during the 2020 season, KOALA V is now offered for sale, freshly serviced and in turn-key order.


The Hallberg-Rassy 40 was built from 2002-2018 in totally 162 units. The Hallberg-Rassy 40 offers great comfort for long distance sailing. The layout offers much storage and provides excellent comfort. By using the space in the cockpit coaming, she even offers headroom in the walk through to the aft cabin. There is a separate shower with plexi glass doors in the heads compartment. This interior allows for some special solutions like the famous Hallberg-Rassy Armchairs in the saloon. This feature was introduced by Hallberg-Rassy as the first boatyard in the world already in 1984.

Technical equipment is installed in the huge engine room. There you find gear such as main engine, gen set, pumps, filters, charger, inverter, a spare propeller and a lot more. That allows for easy access, easy maintenance and good sound insulation. Main inspection doors are to the starboard side, but there are also additional access from the front and from the floor in the cockpit locker. The floor in the cockpit is bolted in place, so that the engine may be lifted out the same way it came in. Hallberg-Rassy boats are sailed actively and intensively for a very long time. Sooner or later parts need to be replaced such as engine or tanks. Then it is good to know that those parts may be taken out the same way they got in; through natural openings of the boat. That is what you need on a Blue Water Cruiser.

The Hallberg-Rassy 40 has won no less than four attractive awards:
She was presented European Yacht of the Year in the largest category
Overall winner in Boat of the Year in USA 2004
Best Liveaboard cruising boat in USA 2004
Sailboat of the Show in Stockholm

The sailboat of the year jury says:
?The Hallberg-Rassy 40 is a long distance cruiser of highest quality from the Swedish island Orust. The boat is the result of the yard?s long experience in boatbuilding. This has in the Hallberg-Rassy 40 been further developed to a discrete elegance. Without looking at trends, this is a modern yacht built to highest standards in respect of equipment and comfort.?


SwissBoat/Yachting from Switzerland says: ?With the new HR 40 Hallberg-Rassy has exceeded their own high level. This boat is the new measure in her class. The test crew seldom use so many superlatives, but we rarely had reason to do so either. The Hallberg-Rassy 40 is well thought out, safe, solidly built, fast and elegant ? simply just good! ?

Hallberg-Rassy 40, Cruising World, USA: "Id be proud to row away from this yacht."

Båtnytt, Sweden, issue 6/2008, Six 40-footers on test: "Hallberg-Rassy 40 is more solid than most other boats. For those who give prior to performance it might be interesting to know that all six boats tested performed well. The polar diagrams of the boats with theoretical tacking angle and speed calculated by the designers show what is valid during perfect conditions. Statistic by all means but in the reality Hallberg-Rassy 40 was superior that day when we had a gale. In the gale Hallberg-Rassy 40 showed minimal drift and good speed. Germán Frers has an eye for beautiful lines. Inside she is an icon for the finest of craftsmanship."
