Ursa Major | Hallberg-Rassy 43 Sloop 43ft


Picton, ON, CA



URSA MAJORwas delivered to her owner in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and has always been sailed in freshwater her entire life. She is likely one of the only HR43s that can make this boast. She has been so lightly used that she only has 400 hours on her Volvo diesel engine. She spends her winters in her custom-built boathouse on her owners property and is hauled out and launched each year on her own marine railway. As expected from Hallberg-Rassy, her quality is second to none - a solidly constructed hull,beautifullyfinishedmahogany interior and top of the line equipment.

She features powered mainsail furling as well as powered primary winches and mainsheet winch, Air conditioning, 8kw genset, Raymarine electronics, autopilotand much, much more.

Comments from the designer, German Frers:

"The Hallberg-Rassy 43 represents an evolution of earlier models, especially the HR 42.

Compared to the earlier design the first thing that becomes apparent is the relatively longer waterline thus a slender hull. This longer waterline would bring immediate improvements in speed and sea-kindliness.

The hull construction follows HR current and well proven practice of building solid bottom layup and cored topsides and decks for very good results in strength and longevity.

Compared with the 42 the interior layout has been improved, adding a separate shower on the forward toilet, good headroom in the walk-through to the aft cabin and overall polishing of details and layouts.

Iexpect the new HR 43 to become a classic in her range and style with very good sailing capabilities and volume inside. Clean uncluttered decks and a well-protected cockpit, typical of the HR Line."



Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
