The H60 adopts innovative design and construction techniques to bring broader appeal to a well established brand. We are excited to continue our long partnership with world class designer Germán Frers, once again testing the boundaries of performance, functionality and quality for bluewater cruising yachts. Being built at the Hylas Yard she also keeps our reputation for great value very much intact.

HULL DESIGN

The flowing lines of the hydrodynamic hull design offer comfort and speed during cross-ocean passages. The bulbed fin keel ensures leeway (Side slip) is reduced and stiffens the yacht allowing her to carry the sail area the tall rig allows (Air draft 92’). The spade twin rudders minimize upwind sailing angles and provide the best traction when heeled. The wrap-around window, over-sized port lights and a full 17’3″ beam that carries well aft creates a Superyacht sense of space and comfort.

INTERIOR SPACES & LAYOUTS

Working closely with the Italian interior design team Hot Lab this yacht oozes style from stem to stern. Three or four cabin layouts are available. The Hylas touch comes to the for with wood type, grain direction, cabinetry design and facings options. Numerous color and texture choices for seats, surfaces and liners are available. Every Hylas interior is slightly different with unique features. Many of our standard offerings have come from improvements driven by client usage and change requests. We listen closely to what our clients want, give guidance from the experience of others and believe strongly that adaptability and continuous improvement should be vigorously pursued and not simply accepted.
