Beautifully presented and professionally maintained centreboard Hylas 70 with fantastic specification. CE marked and ready to go in Europe or further afield. A very rare opportunity.


The 70-foot (21.2m) sailing yacht AMANTE is ideal for those looking to sail as a family or employ a crew.

AMANTE is a capable blue-water sailing yacht that can take you wherever you wish to travel on the world’s oceans. Aiding in sail performance as well as allowing the yacht to access shallow harbors, AMANTE features a lifting keel.

The yacht’s interior is finely crafted in solid teak joinery and exudes classic elegance. AMANTE’s spacious salon boasts a large L-shaped settee with a beautiful burled high-low table that expands to accommodate six; the area feels light and open thanks to its numerous hatches and windows. The luxury sailing yacht accommodates six to eight guests in four staterooms. Her large master stateroom is a private oasis with a queen size-bed, en-suite bath and six portholes that fill the space with natural light. Her guest staterooms include a stateroom with a queen-sized bed, a stateroom with a double bed and an over under bunked stateroom that is suitable for guests or crew.

The sailing yacht boasts a spectacular central cockpit that is ideal for dining alfresco, relaxing and taking in the views as you sail. Just aft are twin helms that allow for everyone to feel a part of the group.
Since her launch AMANTE has been exceptionally maintained and upgraded. In Spring 2019, the yacht is receiving general service to her rudder and shafts, replacing the standing rigging and having her mast checked and painted.

AMANTE has RCD / EU certification, category A, Marshall Islands flag, and US duties paid.


The new flagship Hylas 70 stands in a class of it’s own. With over thirty years in the making, this new fully found world cruiser will not disappoint. Meticulous thought, development, planning and an investment in the finest naval architecture in the world adorn this vessel. This seamlessly sculpted yacht offers flawless functionality, custom interiors and reliability all at a value that is second to none. Whether you’re a coastal cruiser or potential circumnavigator, you need not look any further.


The Queen Long Marine shipyard, founder and owner of the Hylas Yachts brand since 1985, has produced sailboats for over 40 years. Located in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, the shipyard is home to a 32,000 sq ft main construction hall, a laminating hall, a large paint facility, extensive design and administration offices, as well as the famous full-sized yacht testing tank complete with a thriving population of ornamental Koi Carp.

With over 520 vessels launched so far, Hylas Yachts pride themselves on a reputation for customized luxury yachts at a competitive price point.
