54' Hylas Raised Salon


MATOWI is an immaculate 54 Raised Salon that was well planned and sensibly commissioned to be easily managed by a cruising couple without additional crew. Her knowledgable architect owners worked directly with the builder to incorporate tasteful design elements and comfort features throughout. She was lightly cruised and is now available with low hours and an extensive list of options. 

The Hylas 54 was designed by German Frers for world cruising. She was built by Queen Long Marine, one of the world's premier quality builders. The Hylas 54 is a proven design that has safely carried owners to all corners of the globe.

MATOWI represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a high quality, heavily equipped Hylas Raised Salon 54 in outstanding condition that is ready to enjoy immediately.

She is easy to view on our docks on San Francisco Bay. Call us to inspect this fine yacht!

Additional Descriptions

Interior Overview

Her architect owners worked closely with Queen Long during the build and specified unique treatments that truly set MATOWI apart from other 54' Hylas yachts. Cabinetry and doors are done in Teak with Ebony inlay. Passageway doors have squared bases at the bottom and rounded corners on top. The soles throughout MATOWI are done in Bamboo with Teak inlay. There is a double grooved design element around the main salon, galley and cabin fiddles. There is teak facia along the coachroof throughout all cabins including the main salon and galley. Cameo white headliners were used in lieu of the standard material and 41 Newport LED Recessed Lights on dimmers were added throughout the yacht. Beautiful Giallo California Granite Counters were used in the galley that work well with the Teak and Ebony cabinetry. Upholstery is UltraSuede and all of it is in near perfect condition. Attention to detail is evident and the finished product that was created is stunning.

To starboard is a straight settee that pulls out to make a wide sea berth. There is a flat screen TV on an electric lift that is connected to the TracVision Satellite dome. The outboard facing navigation station has an adjacent office area aft with a computer shelf and a Herman Miller Aeron chair on a pedestal. There is storage access behind and below all salon cushions that is cut in such a way that access is directly behind each removable cushion section.
