Sail Away

Sailboats are a great way to “get away from it all” — step aboard, take in the dock lines, unfurl the sails and discover what lies beyond the horizon. The Hylas H60 is the ideal choice to make that dream a reality.

In books, movies and songs, a classic sailboat is the ultimate getaway vehicle. Driven by the wind and able to slice thorough the sea, it takes you wherever your whims dictate. However, even a casual glance at the local marina makes it clear that not all sailboats are created equal. Designed by German Frers, from whose drafting tables have merged some of the fastest and most beautiful sailing vessels to take to the ocean, the Hylas Yachts H60 represents the pinnacle of what is at once an instant classic and an eminently “proper” yacht. An overall length of 59’ 3” with a beam of just over 17’ allows the H60 to handle even rough seas with aplomb while providing room for up to four staterooms and an expansive salon/dining area. Lines run under the flush deck while the anchor, main and jib can all be controlled from the spacious cockpit. A hydraulic swim platform, aft dinghy garage and optional passarelle ensure easy access to and from the dock and the sea. The optional twin rudder layout ensures responsive handling. Those seeking the best will be impressed by a closer look at the H60. Crafted by artisans at Hylas’ Taiwan shipyard, the H60 represents the pinnacle of personal yachts engineered for those who will not accept any compromises;
