Manufacturer Provided Description

Hylas has done it again, this time on a grand scale, as we announce our flagship, the Hylas 70. Once again, here's a fully-found, first-class world cruiser for about half the price of a comparably sized one-off. That's right, half. Too good to be true? Hardly. The Hylas 70 is the latest in a series of fine sailing yachts to bear this proud nameplate. You could say that she's been thirty years in development, drawing upon everything we've learned about boats, people and the sea. Investment in the finest naval architecture in the world, flawless tooling, innovative interior design solutions and deck plans, add up to a value that far exceeds mere price. Building techniques perfected over hundreds of seagoing yachts, refinements learned and earned from thousands of offshore miles, ergonomics gleaned from the best traits of racing and cruising. Available in two entirely different configurations, Pilothouse and Center Cockpit/Deck Saloon versions, the Hylas 70 offers numerous delicious choices for customization of layout, decor and details. Up to four private staterooms may be elegantly styled for you, your family, friends and our crew. Access to all mechanical systems is exquisitely planned, and the execution is flawless. Ease of maintenance assures good maintenance and means less down time. Your time is precious, and we spend a lot of ours to make sure that you won't have to waste yours. Add the sublime feel of her crisp helm, her fast and stable German Frers hull shape, and you can experience the benefits of Hylas' thirty years of consistent ownership and proven commitment to stand behind our products. Simply put, Hylas Yachts delivers on our promises. If you're ready for the finest accessory to your lifestyle, whether you're a coastal cruiser or potential circumnavigator, you need not look further. The Hylas 70 has every ingredient necessary to take you anywhere, on your schedule, at your whim. She'll give you the thrill of your lifetime, and the peace of mind that you chose her well.
