Raymarine has extended its current exclusive supplier agreement with cruising yacht builder Hallberg-Rassy by three years.

Known for its bluewater cruising yachts, Hallberg-Rassy is a Swedish shipyard with facilities located in Ellös on the island of Orust, Västra Götaland.

“Hallberg-Rassy is happy to work with Raymarine and to extend our exclusive supply agreement,” says Magnus Rassy, CEO and owner. “Raymarine has a top-end range of marine electronic equipment, a strong worldwide service network, and has been good in keeping to delivery dates with us, regardless of recent worldwide supply chain pressures. This is a critical factor for us, as Hallberg-Rassy both aims to and has delivered every single yacht on time, even during the pandemic.”

The Raymarine equipment that will feature on Hallberg-Rassy yachts will centre around the new Axiom 2 Pro HybridTouch chartplotters launched earlier this year, or the recently announced Axiom 2 XL premium glass bridge chartplotters with advanced networking and video integration capabilities.

Raymarine says the Axiom 2 Pro combines chartplotter, sonar, radar, autopilot, and video into a powerful all-in-one navigation system. Its custom interface is said to deliver key navigation information quickly and accurately, ensuring skippers are not overwhelmed with data at critical points in a passage.

Evolution pilot, Quantum radar, RAY90 VHF, AIS700, and i70s instruments are all included.

Andy King, VP sales EMEA & APAC at Raymarine says: ”We are so pleased to announce this continuation of Raymarine’s long and successful relationship with Hallberg-Rassy. The owners of Hallberg-Rassy yachts are known for their impressive long range cruising journeys, often in demanding environments, and we love to see Raymarine equipment being used to its full potential.”
