SPUTNIK – a lightly used Hallberg-Rassy 31 MKI that typifies this Swedish boatbuilders commitment to seaworthiness, superb craftsmanship and ‘trans ocean’ construction. This particular example has been lovingly cared for; she is winterized in a starage building and professionally maintained by Dodson Boatyard in Stonington, Ct. She wants for nothing.
SPUTNIK is the tiller version, enjoying the benefits of immediate response and feedback under sail or power, increased cockpit space while also having the assistance of automatic helm when wanted.
Her interior is all mahogany and cleverly laid out giving the ‘feel’ and amenities of a much larger vessel. There are two separate full-size double cabins, one forward and one aft, a large head aft with shower, large saloon with two additional sea berths and a full-size chart table.
This is the fully equipped Scandinavia spec. which enjoys additional amenities such as a Webasto diesel heater, electric refrigeration, pressure water system, third battery and swim platform with shower to name but a few.
If owning an exceptionally built cruising sailboat with an emphasis on craftmanship, comfort and speed as well as a commitment to safety then SPUTNIK maybe for you whether at the dock, on a mooring or in all weather conditions. This Hallberg-Rassy is sure to impress her new owner, family and friends for many years of luxurious, comfortable, safe sailing.
This boat is hull number 303 of a total production run of 307 boats.
