The Hylas brand is synonymous with quality, performance, functionality and value. We are delighted to introduce our newest blue-water sailing vessel. From world class designer Bill Dixon the Hylas H57 is a perfect blend of classic Hylas, contemporary good looks and an embracing of the latest technology in construction and design.

INTERIOR SPACES & LAYOUTS

With a three or four cabin arrangement Hylas H57 offers great versatility and an ability to cruise with additional family, friends or professional crew. Customization is an important part of the Hylas value proposition. There is always a willingness to work closely with clients in creating an interior that reflects personal tastes. Dixon has worked hard to ensure the Hybrid cockpit with aft helm stations does not impact head room in the standing areas of the master stateroom.

DESIGN

Twin helms and rudders for improved performance, a lighter weight cored hull for improved strength and insulation plus the Solent rig for ease of handling mark a new era in Hylas designs. With a 3 or 4 cabin layout this yacht will meet the needs of live aboard couples or those planning extended cruises with friends and family. Primarily designed to be handled easily by a couple and fit the modern cruising lifestyle, this exciting new development stays true to the Hylas core competence of safely crossing oceans in comfort and style.

HULL DESIGN

The Hylas H57 will impress discerning yachtsmen and women. The flowing lines of the latest hydrodynamic hull design offer comfort and speed during trans ocean passages. The fin keel ensures leeway (Side slip) is reduced and stiffens the yacht allowing her to carry the sail area this tall rig allows (Air draft 83’8”). The spade twin rudders optimize upwind sailing angles and provide the best traction when heeled. The wrap-around window, oversized port lights and a full 17' beam that carries well aft creates a Super yacht sense of space and comfort.
