Hallberg-Rassy, Monsun 31, 1976

  • Located Newport, RI

    The Monsun is Hallberg-Rassy's best-selling model, with over 900 built. A Timeless, classic plastic, and the first GRP sailboat to enter a museum. Lloyds specified for blue water cruising. Originally intended as entry-level weekender, a number of unmodified Monsuns have circumnavigated. One 3 1/2 times! Everything about the boat - from solid mahogany furniture and tempered glass fixed and opening ports, to her oversized deck hardware and finely finished cabin mahogany - bespeaks the high standards of her Swedish builder. Unlike many production models her size, the Monsun is truly a little yacht. Halberg Rassy is a premier blue-water yacht builder. Its signature glass windscreen, is unique for a yacht this size and provides superior visibility for both helmsman and guests. "Coquina" sails like a dream and is very agile for a 31 foot, full-keel cruiser. Lightly enjoyed 20 years.
