Design Background

This stunningly-capable offshore cruiser was designed and developed by Dean Salthouse of the legendary New Zealand-based Salthouse family. Successfully marketed in New Zealand as the Salthouse Corsair with more than 160 sisterships launched to date, the design is, without a doubt, one of New Zealand’s most proven motor yacht designs with varying applications from customs and police patrol vessels to commercial fishing and deep sea game fishing. Queen Long Marine offer an arguably more luxurious version of the design featuring all of the craftsmanship and luxuries synonymous with the Hylas name.

History of Hylas Yachts

The Hylas brand was established in 1985 by Queen Long Marine who’s shipyard was founded in 1978 by the Huang family and remains in full family operation and ownership to this day. The 117,300 sq ft shipyard is home to a 32,000 sq ft main construction hall, dedicated 18,000 sq ft laminating hall, a large paint facility, extensive design and administration offices and their famous on-site 3m-deep full-sized yacht testing tank complete with a thriving population of ornamental Koi Carp. Some 76 shipwrights, laminators, engineers, electricians and painters are employed directly by the shipyard to build the Hylas range of motor and sailing yachts yachts, or which over 500 have been launched to date.

Model Options

The new Hylas motor yacht is available in two hull lengths, the M44 and the M49. The Hylas M49 features a lengthened aft cockpit over the M44 on which it is based, adding 1.40m to the LOA and 0.81m to the waterline.There are also two options for superstructure styles with differing side window profiles and extension of the deckhead over the aft cockpit. The Euro extends to the deckhead to the aft end of the cockpit whilst the Cabriolet deckhead covers approx. half of the cockpit with a self-supporting bimini available to cover the rest. All models are powered by twin Yanmar 8LV-370 8-cylinder diesels. These engines offer the optimum combination of proven performance and economy, negating the need to offer a variety of different engine options, and greatly simplifying the purchase process.
