Hallberg-Rassy 46'

Carbery Sailing's yacht "Merlin" is a Hallberg-Rassy 46', a yacht built to go around the world or cruise local waters.

Swedish builders Hallberg-Rassy have a global reputation when it comes to setting standards for blue water cruising......Apart from their good manners under sail and power, much of the yachts' reputation is based on the solid build and high quality standard specification - considered by many to be the cruising icon.,

April 1996

This modern Germán Frers design provides outstanding ocean sailing performance, quality construction and a comfortable four-cabin interior ideal for coastal and offshore passages. Merlin was built under Lloyd's of London supervision by Hallberg Rassy, one of the world's finest boatbuilders.

Merlin's cabins have a total of nine berths, two private heads and three showers, a saloon that can comfortably seat eight for dinner, an efficient sea-going galley and a cockpit spray hood. Each passenger has their own bunk (couples have private cabins) and private storage lockers.

Although Merlin can accommodate up to nine persons, we limit the numbers to six passengers which helps to ensure a bit more comfort and privacy.
