Hallberg-Rassy from Sweden

Pin It

Harry Hallberg, who lived between 1914 and 1997, commenced his boatbuilding career at the age of 14, by constructing boats made of wood. In 1943 he opened his own yard at Kungsviken on the island of Orust in Sweden. At first, he built his wooden boats more or less by instinct. Different possibilities were discussed with the customer and solutions pointed out. Blueprints hardly existed at all. It was said that: “Someone who cannot build a boat without drawings cannot call himself a real boat builder”.

Christoph Rassy was brought up in Bavaria in the south of Germany by a lake named Starnberger See. In his spare time he built models of boats and also real boats. He wanted to learn more about boats and became an apprentice at a small yard for wooden boats in southern Germany.

In the years of 1965 to 1972, Harry Hallberg and Christoph Rassy were competitors. Harry Hallberg retired in 1972. Fate intervened, Christoph Rassy was looking for larger premises.
He bought the Hallberg. Harry Hallberg and Christoph Rassy, however, have never been partners.

It is one of the best looking websites I’ve seen in this niche. It is the reason why they have a very good internet ranking. This post was largely inspired by the site itself. To change their words would have been a great mistake. It’s pure history, after all. Pictures are all from the site, all credits are theirs. They also offer an almost unlimited support. Here, for sample, you have the Volvo Penta service site.
