We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Hallberg-Rassy 40 MKII

With more than 9,400 boats delivered worldwide, Hallberg-Rassy is one of the established and respected names that continues to evolve sailboat manufacturing and design. With a taller masthead rig, increased headroom and ventilation, redesigned pulpit and pushpit, the 40 MKII has a stem-to-stem update. Hallberg-Rassy was the first boatyard to incorporate “armchairs” in the saloon, and they are still in place on this model, as they are an efficient use of space. Traditional settees are available as well. LOA 40’8”; Beam 12’6”; Draft 6’7”; Displ. 24,200 lbs.; Sail area 877 sq. ft., www.hallberg-rassy.com. Price: $394,500
