Schip

It is hard to find a Olle Enderlein-designed Hallberg-Rassy 38 in better condition than Tangaroa. After a meticulous preparation under supervision of best selling Dutch sailing guru Lengkeek, Tangaroa has succesfully navigated from Europe with a family of 4 and is currently lying Cammeray Marina, Sydney. The flush deck, high freeboard hull offers spacious interior volume with well balanced storage and living space. The center cockpit provides great protection behind the glass windshield.

Recent upgrading includes a new flexiteek deck (09), hull and topside re-spray (09), engine overhaul and realignment (09), complete overhaul of 600Ah 12V electrical system by marine electrician (09), internal re-paint (09) and full re-rig (06) with dyneema halliards (09). Cruising inventory: windpilot pacific, wind generator, solar panels, SSB & pactor modem, echotec watermaker, etc.

Where cruising types smitten by wanderlust traditionally wait for fair weather before setting sail, you can put to sea whenever the mood strikes in this yacht. Little wonder that just two of the 25 Hallberg-Rassys in Australia were delivered by ship. The rest were sailed. Enough said.
