This German Frers performance cruising design is one of only nine 45.5 Hylas vessels built by talented Queen Long craftsmen in Taiwan.
With a crispy pair of top-of-the-line Hood sails, updated standing rigging, a wind generator, twin solar panels, modern electronics, life raft, EPIRB, and a generous array of spare parts, you can shove off with confidence to the islands, across the pond, or around the world. The chef will love the gourmet galley, ample storage, and dual refrigeration systems: both 12-volt and engine driven cold plates. Two heads (one equipped with a push-button electric toilet) offer comfort and convenience aboard. The boat’s clever scheel keel will let you sneak into shallow waters of private anchorages while the satellite phone makes it possible to stay in touch anywhere in the world. At the end of the day, the centerline queen stateroom with deep custom mattress will pamper the crew.
Detailed maintenance logs, a library of equipment manuals, and the notable list of recent improvements provided in the listing is evidence that this two-owner blue water cruiser was lovingly updated and maintained by knowledgeable yachtsmen throughout her life. She is now ready for your adventure. Beautiful, safe, and luxurious, you will find “Wild Hair” a willing and spirited go-fast boat that is—in every way—a delight to sail.
