Which boat is she?

Hello everyone,

My name is Matthys. Currently I'm working on the restoration of a sailing boat which was advertised as a Hallberg Rassy P28. After some further research on the P 28 I doubt if it is one.

I would like to knows what type of boat it is, so here or some photo's and I hope that one of you knows the anwser.

Matthys

The Hallberg Rassy P-28 only has two large port lights on each side of the cabin, so I'd say the boat in question is definitely not a P-28.

I think it is indeed P-28. They had a variety of cabin/doghouse configurations. Looks like a sweet boat.

Re: Which boat is she?

The P 28 has been built in many different versions. In the beginning all hulls and superstructures were built in mahogany and had a fractional rig. At the end of the 50s a masthead rig replaced the fractional rig and the design of the main window was improved to two individual windows. As early as 1963 a GRP hull was introduced. At the same time the hull was made a bit wider.
In 1972 the transom was developed adding on her length from 8.61 m / 28'' 3'''' to 9.04 m / 29'' 8''''. After 1972 the deck was covered with teak as a standard and the toerail was made in teak in stead of mahogany. After Hull #500, boats were fitted with a Volvo Penta diesel.
The biggest markets for the P-28 were the USA and Sweden.

I have contacted the Hallberg-Rassy yard they told me it was probably not a P 28 so that point is cleared up now.

Interesting... did they make any suggestions?
One thing that I have noticed was that your boat seems to have a deeper keel than P28.
I really like the older HR designs. I'm a big fan of Monsun 31

No he didn't knew what type it could be, maybe a one-off or a less known model he said.

Can you even verify that she actually is Scandinavian ?

No I can not verify that, I can't find any yard/makers mark. The person where I bought the boat from also didn't had any proof of it being a P28.

The boat was left behind at a Boat Yard by the previous owners (they where German). The boat yard have tried to contact them, because they own the yard some storage money, but they didn't succeed in that. So I haven't got any information about the boat.
