General Details

This impeccably maintained 2008 Hylas 46, with a Hall performance carbon rig and Doyle vectran/carbon sails above decks, and an airy interior with bamboo sole and custom ebony-inlay teak cabinetry, represents the best of this semi-custom line, designed by German Frers and crafted at Queen Long Marine.

She's stunning with Awlgrip flag blue hull and gold-leaf cove stripe. Thoughtfully selected optional deck equipment, custom dodger/bimini, and luxurious appointments below are complimented by electrical, mechanical and plumbing system upgrades.  With extremely light use (only 180 eng hrs) and professional, conscientious care, she shows as exceptional value!  



Her two stainless steel anchors, eye catching varnished teak cap rails and custom teak rub rails with stainless striker plates, accent the Awlgrip Flag Blue hull and gold-leaf cove stripe.  She is just stunning at the dock.  As a result, one almost misses the deck accessible sail locker forward.  Aft, the stainless steel pushpit with custom fixed teak seats and an integral life raft cradle has been fully extended to the mid-ship gates.  Other deck details include double mooring cleats mid-ship, stainless steel chocks, Schaeffer and Harken deck gear, even a center-line dingy cleat aft. But her real beauty is performance.  With the Hall carbon fiber mast and full batten Doyle vectran/carbon main and matching Genoa, she is solid; and the weight savings aloft allow the sail plan to work without tenderness or excessive heal resulting in exceptionally stable performance, not seen in another Hylas 46.  The folding Max prop reduces drag. Trimming is a breeze with the electric, oversize Antal winches.  A carbon spinnaker pole and Doyle asymmetrical let her run down wind.  In heavier conditions, she reefs easily with the Schaeffer Gamma in-boom system for the main and a Harken furler on the bow.  If needed in a blow, the rugged Doyle Dacron staysail launches from a custom bag on the removable inner forestay, while running backs aft steady the rig.  The center cockpit is safe and secure with a full dodger and bimini.  The bimini is fitted with removable screens and clear side enclosures.  Instruments above the companionway are visible to all and the helm provides great visibility and full instrumentation. There is even a wireless controller for the furling winch, starboard.   A teak trimmed companionway entry leads to the teak steps and the main saloon below.  When entering, you first notice the main saloon’s open feeling; then realize the sole is bamboo with teak inlay, the settee cushions are Ultra leather, the teak cabinets are custom ebony-inlay and the headliner reflects the light from the widows and added opening ports.  The reading lights were all upgraded to LED’s in 2012 to match current models. With custom cabinets, a microwave, and Force 10 stove, the seven-foot galley to starboard, provides ample safe work area with light and ventilation from the additional optional opening ports, as well as access to the owners cabin aft.  To port, the updated 2008 version of the outboard facing nav-station with full electrical system distribution panel; navigation and communications electronics is complete with ample desk space, storage and cut away laptop access. The swing out seat leaves the passage way aft to the owners head and cabin easily accessible. The owner’s cabin aft with queen sized centerline berth is inviting and plenty of cabinet and hanging locker space is available.  The aft head is complete with teak cabinets, abundant mirrors, VacuFlush head and separate stall shower. Forward, similar accommodations are provided for guests—a 6’9” Pullman berth, ample storage, a full size Vacuflush equipped head and spacious shower. The engine and generator, as well as supporting plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems are top quality; upgrades have been made throughout. She is a beauty and with very light local use this yacht shows as new.  She is ready for a boat show, your dock or adventures at sea.  We invite your inspection.
