Additional Descriptions

A few words from the Naval Architect - German Frers

"Our design work is backed by our solid racing and cruising tradition at sea and a clear understanding of the enjoyment and peace of mind that life on board yields, which can be taken to a higher degree by the beauty and functionality of the design."

A note on the Standing Rigging, sails and cover

The current owner purchased the yacht in 2006. He has not upgraded the standing rigging in the time that he has owned the yacht. The age of the existing standing rigging is unknown.

Sails have not been replaced since owner purchased this boat. While all are functional anyone planning to circumnavigate the globe should consider some replacements.

Sail covers and dodger are old and ready for an upgrade. One might consider adding a Bimini cover to aft cockpit.

All these are just suggestions for the avid sailor to consider. The Hylas would be well worth investing some love to upgrade to the world class sailing vessel she was designed to be..
