New Boat Showcase
It’s boat show season, and this year there is a range of new boats hitting the shows from Newport to Miami. From a fun inflatable dinghy and a foiling racer to comfy cruisers, our editors share some of the exciting new designs.
This brand-new Frers-designed Hallberg-Rassy packs a lot of cruising comfort in an offshore capable hull. Like its big sister HR44, the 340 has twin rudder blades for better control, especially in rough weather, and twin helms. The headsail furler is an Furlex TD mounted under the deck and all sail controls are led aft. Hallberg-Rassy offers a large folding transom for the first time in this size of boat. Down below, the galley is tucked to starboard beside the companionway, making it a great space to cook while in a seaway and creating more room in the light and airy saloon.
