We Bought a New Boat! (February 2022)

On a snowy day in February 2022 we visited the Hallberg-Rassy boatyard in Ellös, Sweden and met with a project manager/salesperson, Pär Ohrbom.

Pär gave us a tour of the boatbuilding factory, discussed options for the 40C model that we were interested in, and described the timeline for purchasing it.

Pär, MJ, & Adam

He explained that we needed to sign the contract soon if we wanted the boat ready for spring, 2024 (Adam’s retirement). So… much to our surprise, we signed a contract and selected the options for our new boat!

The hull with topsides was built Summer 2023 and delivered by truck to the Hallberg-Rassy factory on September 5, 2023.

Ellös is in southwest Sweden, about a 1-hour drive north of Gothenburg.
