The Hylas 54 was for many years the flagship of the Hylas Yachts line. Because of the versatility offered by these boats it is easy to understand why. An easy boat to sail short-handed but still large enough to live very comfortably on the Hylas 54 will always be considered a head of the class type boat.
The attributes that make these boats great for long-term cruisers are highlighted by the fact that they are exceptional sailing yachts. Frers designed hulls that are constructed to the highest standards coupled with an easily managed but aggressive rig make 200-mile days more common. Every builder in the world would be proud to offer this vessel to discerning owners.
She has crossed the atlantic and back, along with many trips and season in the Caribbean.
