WINNER OF EUROPEAN YACHT OF THE YEAR - LUXURY CRUISER
The Hallberg-Rassy 372 is optimized for comfortable and fast family cruising. She will take you anywhere, anytime. Compared to the Hallberg-Rassy 37, the 372 is only a few centimetres longer, is 5 cm wider and has a fuller transom. The canoe body is slightly shallower and the keel slightly deeper and lighter. The aft and mid sections of the hull are flatter and the bow section sharper. The sheer line is more pronounced. The modern sailplan is easy to handle. The yacht breathes graceful elegance.
Hallberg-Rassy may be best known for its centre cockpit boats, but over 5 800 of so far 9 500 built Hallberg-Rassys have an aft cockpit. The aft cockpit 372 is in every aspect an all-new Frers design and is not based on the centre cockpit Hallberg-Rassy 37.
A MODERN SAIL PLAN
The mast is 1.05 m taller than on the 37. The modern sail plan is made for easy handling, with its greater mainsail and only slightly overlapping genoajib. There is an option of self tacking jib. A powerful backstay tensioner is fitted as standard. The rig has triple swept-back spreaders, the top shrouds go out to near the toe rail and the lowers are positioned to the superstructure for easy passage on deck, and for easy sheeting of the foresail. An optional Code Zero or gennaker is flown between the masthead and a removable bowsprit. Frers’ speed prediction diagram indicates that the Hallberg-Rassy 372 is even faster than the 40, which is recognized as a fast yacht.
In the Norwegian yachting magazine Seilas, there was a big comparison test between 8 modern 37 footer. Test winner was the Hallberg-Rassy 372.
WELL PROTECTED COCKPIT
The aft cockpit is generous and the leather covered steering wheel is a large 122 cm. The steering is directly linked, for a precise sailing experience. Halyards are hidden under the coach roof and are handled by two winches on the cockpit coaming, not on the exterior chart tables. This solution makes it possible to achieve Hallberg-Rassy typical Push Button Sailing with optional electric halyard and control winches, without disturbing the interior, even with a traditional non-furling mainsail. There are two big exterior chart tables in teak. It goes without saying that the cockpit is well protected by a windscreen that melts perfectly into the lines of the yacht.
CLEAN AND UNCLUTTERED DECK LAYOUT
There are no less than five large deck hatches, all flush mounted so that the glass is level with the coach roof. The opening deck hatches to the toilet room and the aft cabin are milk coloured, to allow light but no view into the cabin.
The genoajib furler has an under deck mounted drum to get clean deck lines. Also the optional electric anchor windlass is mounted under deck. The distance between the windlass and the chain storage is essential for a self-stowing chain and this is achieved by the Hallberg-Rassy 372’s special design and layout arrangement.
BRIGHT AND INVITING INTERIOR
Below deck the interior is roomy and bright. There are two deck hatches in the saloon. All side port lights are opening and the same large size as on the Hallberg-Rassy 54. The galley is big, U shaped and seagoing. The galley worktop is in a solid composite stone material. Both sofas in the saloon are a full two metres long. The roomy head is equipped with a wet locker and has a separate shower with PlexiGlass doors. The forward cabin is extremely large and generous. The v berth is 210 cm long, 68 cm wide at the foot end and 202 cm in the aft end. There is a seat, two hanging lockers and two vanities in the forward cabin. The aft cabin also has a comfortable and unusually wide double berth.
GENEROUSLY SIZED ENGINE
The engine is a generously sized 44 kW / 60 HP 4 cylinder Volvo Penta with a range under engine of approximately 845 nautical miles at 2/3 throttle, 6 knots, with the optional Gori propeller with overdrive. Seilas magazine says that "We have never measured such low noise levels before, neither in the cockpit nor below deck. The low rpm gives less noise."
The alternator is as large as 115 A.
SAILS LIKE A DREAM
Already after the first tack it was clear: Hallberg-Rassy 372 sails like a dream! She is quick, stiff, easy to steer in all conditions. She moves gently in the water, always under control. It is great fun sailing her!
Category winner Tjörn Runt
Tjörn Runt is one of the world´s largest inshore races. 471 boats applied 2010. A Hallberg-Rassy 372 won her class. This proves that a comfortable cruiser doesn't need to lack in performance.
