Hallberg-Rassy AB (HR) is a Swedish shipyard internationally known for producing blue water sailing yachts. The company's yard is located in Ellös on the island of Orust, Västra Götaland.

History[edit]

Harry Hallberg founded his yard in 1943, and in 1965 Christoph Rassy founded a yard, in premises recently vacated by Hallberg. Hallberg-Rassy was formed when Rassy purchased the Hallberg yard after Harry Halberg's retirement in 1972. Since 1988, all designs have been produced by the Argentinian engineer and yacht designer Germán Frers. To date, more than 8,900 yachts have been completed by the yard. The company is owned by the Rassy family, and is managed by Magnus Rassy.

Regattas[edit]

HR hosts annual Hallberg-Rassy Regattas in Sweden, in the UK, the Netherlands, in the USA (east and west coast) and in Italy (since 2004; Punta Ala).
