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