Hylas 49 Description

Designed by Sparkman and Stephens to be a seagoing cutter rigged boat, the Hylas 49 has lived up to expectations for every owner willing to test her strength.

The exceptional build quality is evident throughout the interior where every detail of this three-cabin boat is well thought out. Owners can enjoy a centerline queen berth in the large master cabin aft while the two forward cabins are more than ample for guests. The galley rivals those in much larger boats and allows owners to enjoy an unrivaled live aboard experience. Every Hylas 49 interior has a unique character that reflects the discerning taste of her original owner. Boats that exude a sense of comfort while at anchor or sailing, the Hylas 49 will impress even the most particular owners.

A hand laid solid hull, that glides effortlessly through the water and can be shorthanded with ease, is what almost every cruising sailor would like to own. As the 49 gets pressed she responds to even the lightest touch and balances easily giving the feeling of a smaller boat. This Hylas epitomizes the perfect cruising yacht for the adventurous sailor.
