Fabulously re-fitted Hallberg Rassy 49 for sale, due Hamble area mid Sept 2016

A true blue water classic, a superb boat for worldwide cruising, with ample space for all possible cruising equipment. Her clean flush deck is highly appreciated and very practical.

This particular sloop rigged example is a unique HR49 having been built for an American owner who wanted to cruise the intercostal waterways in the United States. To accommodate the depth restrictions she has a shallower than normal draft of 2 meters rather than the usual 2.2 draft, which in turn has made Exuma far more capable.

Additionally she was also specified with a main cabin roof which is wider, a little higher and has windows which give excellent additional light below. Both of these factory alterations are regarded as substantive improvements on an already very well designed yacht.

Exuma was bought by her present British owners in 2002 in Barcelona and has since then been hugely re-fitted to a very high standard, including professional replacement deck in 2007 (finished in 12 mm best quality teak together with new toe rails) decks also recaulked and sanded in 2016, her mast and boom were serviced and repainted in 2016, the standing rigging was replaced in 2014, she has had new Raymarine electronics in 2006, recent new interior upholstery in saloon (Alcantara 2013), recent Copper Coat treatment and much, much more.

Ideal for the ARC or long distance voyaging she is highly specified. Full details in the specification section but highlights include:

Push button inmast hydraulic Reckmann mainsail furling
Reckmann hydraulic furler for genoa
Cutter sail with manual furling (assisted if desired by main hydraulic Lewmar 65 winch)
Lewmar 65 genoa winches (all electro hydraulic rather than just electric)

SAIL PLAN AND SAILS:

Exuma is a sloop with a mainsail that furls into the mast - push button. The main sail was made by shore sails and has been cut flat with short vertical battens. It holds its shape well and is infinitely reef able without leaving the cockpit.

Forward of the mast is a cutter sail. It is for heavy weather, is in good condition, has a Selden self furler and again is reefed from the cockpit.

The genoa is large and mounted on a twin track forestay which is push button reefed with the Reckmann Hydraulic Furler.

There is a second genoa of similar size which may also be simultaneously rigged to provide efficient downwind sailing. When rigged in this fashion both sails are reefed simultaneously with the Reckmann Furler. With this rig it is easy and quick to adjust the reefing - again from the cockpit.
When close hauled the lazy genoa just lies inside the working genoa.

There is a cruising chute rigged from the bottom of the forestay. It is an excellent sail for light to moderate winds just forward of the beam.
The sail is snuffed by a haul down bag - good for transatlantic crossings.

OWNERS COMMENTS:

“My wife and I chose the Hallberg Rassy 49 “Exuma” because she has a wide flat deck, a large cockpit, and as she is sloop rigged, an uncluttered aft deck. Coupled with that, she is immensely strong and will handle any sea. We spent three years researching the market until we found Exuma.

Her original owner specified her with top level options. The main winches (Lewmar 65) and the forsail and main furling (in mast) are electro hydraulic rather than just electric and the mast is the best - Reckmann. This expense no object approach is seen throughout the yacht and we have been absolutely delighted with her.

We had not anticipated stopping sailing hence the new copper coat, repainting /maintenance of mast and boom etc, but with a combined age close to 150 have decided than another transatlantic would be unwise with too many candles on the cake!”
