Imagine’s History

Imagine already has a few miles under her keel.  After delivery in Sweden in June of 2003, She sailed through Denmark, Gemany, Holland and the English Channel, then south to the Canary Islands. In November of 2003 she joined the ARC rally sailing transatlantic to St. Lucia. Winter of 2003/2004 was spent in the Caribbean. She sailed from the BVI’s to Bermuda and then Newport, RI in the spring of 2004 and then cruised south to Norfolk. In November of 2004 she joined the Caribbean 1500 rally from Norfolk to the the BVI’s. She was stored on the hard until March of 2005 when she sailed to Panama, the Marquesas, Tuamotus and Tahiti. She was again stored on the hard in Raitea and was sailed to Seattle via Hawaii and sold to the second owners who’s plans changed and she was again on the market.  After a long search we found Imagine (formerly Runa) in Seattle and purchased her on December 7th 2007 (quite a birthday present for Jane). We are now the proud 3rd owners of this fantastic Hallberg Rassy.
