1989 Hylas Cutter
Vitamin Sea is a beautiful Hylas 47 three-stateroom blue-water cruiser designed by Sparkman & Stephens.
Its powerful cutter rig, low-deadrise hull, and elongated fin keel place it among the fastest cruisers and the hull's raked bow virtually eliminates pounding.
Her soft motion, swift 200 nautical mile per day passages, and luxurious accommodations are unrivaled by yachts of a comparable vintage.
Below deck features solid teak, teak veneer and a very solid teak-and-holly sole.
Passages to port and starboard of the companionway connect the saloon to the large master stateroom and aft head and shower.
The galley occupies the port walkway; to starboard is a full, forward-facing nav station.
The engine, under the cockpit well, is fully accessible on three sides. 6 people can dine comfortably around the saloon's table and the 47’s pilot berths that can easily be converted to additional storage.
Forward, the layout includes a head with shower, a stateroom with two bunk and a large V-berth stateroom.Recent Upgrades Include… New Yanmar 4JH4AE 55HP diesel engine700 hrs Recent Flag Blue Awlgrip paint job Full batten laminated mainsail – New 2014 110 laminated Genoa – New 2014 Stackpack mainsail system – New 2014 New Maxwell RC8 windlass – 2014 New 4-burner Broadwater propane stove – 2014 New ProSine 2000 amp inverter/charger Garmin 2010 chart plotter Espar diesel heater.
