The latest member of the Hylas Yachts range. Bill Dixon has designed an exceptionally fast and easy to handle 48-foot yacht with generous interior volume and classic looks that belie her sleek and sporty underwater profile.
From her near plumb bow to her abundance of volume well well aft of amidships, the new Hylas 48 shares much in common with her larger sisters. The new Hylas Yachts 48 has proven herself to be a sprightly performer in light airs, yet also hugely capable and reassuring in less favourable conditions.
The generously-proportioned and deep central cockpit of the Hylas Yachts 48 is large enough for guests to relax in, while allowing those who want to push the easily driven hull to her potential to control her powerful sail plan simultaneously. The logical and easily-handled sail plan helps makes this a reality with a self-tacking jib on her inner forestay, and a cockpit requiring only primary winches allowing the cockpit to remain free of unnecessary additional lines. The cockpit and sail plan are complimented by large safe & usable deck spaces and a easily accessible bathing platform within the scoop transom.
