Manufacturer Provided Description

Form and function combine with the keen eye and steady hand of renowned designer German Frers to produce this "must-see" cruising yacht. A true watertight collision bulkhead forward and another aft define the 46 as a serious offshore yacht.

But it gets even better. Step below into a world of refined elegance, beautifully hand-finished teak furniture, splendid totally private comfort for two couples, plus room for up to three additional guests.

Abundant storage, unsurpassed electrical and mechanical systems. Top-shelf hardware in every application. A fantastic seagoing galley worthy of a much larger yacht.

In addition to a commanding specification that has been refined by thousands of miles at sea and the invaluable input of our many yacht owners, the Hylas 46 sparkles with a confident profile, a robust and modern sailplan, and a generous beam that carries well aft to provide both excellent stability and more interior volume than other yachts, all in just 46 feet.

This may be all the boat you'll ever need!
