Hylas Yachts is proud to introduce its newest design—the Hylas 63, the ultimate performance cruiser for couples. The Hylas 63 was born from our customers’ desire for the ideal couples cruiser in the low- to mid-60’ range. We attribute our success to listening closely to our customers. With this in mind, German Frers has incorporated his latest philosophies into the 63’s lines. From the nearly-plumb bow to the powerful stern sections, it has been designed to enhance performance while maximizing seakindliness. Frers has done his job well by designing a best-in-class hull and rig plan that will sail the world’s oceans, coasts, and bays at speed and in comfort. Now it is your job to make her yours.

The new Hylas 63 has a strong, vacuum-laid hull built with Twaron, making it beautiful, seakindly and fast. Most importantly, this yacht, like all Hylas yachts, is custom built to each owners cruising needs.

The new Hylas 63 has struck a chord. Based on the reputation of the Hylas quality and value, as well as the Frers’ name, Hylas Yachts has already received commitments for the first eight hulls. We look forward to introducing you to the new Hylas 63 late this summer at the 2013 Newport and Annapolis Shows.
