The new Hylas H60 is designed for bluewater cruising and built using the latest construction techniques. The H60 begins with the hull shape, designed by German Frers to perform in a range of conditions with great seakeeping ability. With a plumb bow and broad transom, the hull makes the most of her waterline length underway. Her hydrodinamic design slips through the water, providing speed with correct comfort.
“The H60 is a yacht for a performance-oriented sailor with an eye for clean design,” says Kevin Wensley, a sales executive at Hylas Yachts. “She’s easy to manage for a couple and keeps the line handling of sailing her away from the social cockpit.”
The helm stations of the Hylas H60 are aft to the social cockpit. Winch controls are nearby and all lines are lead to trim stations. With an in-mast furling system, the main is easily set, furled and refeed. A 105% jib is standard for easy tacking and gybing, and an optional self-tacking staysail can reduce time on deck in lively conditions.
“The Hylas H60 continues that tradition of bluewater sailing performance, and improves on it with uncluttered decks and an impressive volume of interior space”, says Andy Huang, CEO of Hylas Yachts.
Hylas H60: italian style signed Hot Lab
Italian interior design firm Hot Lab have created a bright layout with a selection of fashion-forward wood and fabric finishes.
Owners can choose between three- and four-stateroom layouts. The three-stateroom layout places a master suite aft with a large berth on centerline. A VIP stateroom with queen berth is forward, with private access to a head that is shared with a portside double with upand-down berths.
Amidships, a large saloon area with an L-shaped settee with dining table and stools also has a starboard-side settee. A nav station is to port and a walk-through galley starboard. The four-stateroom layout places the master in the bow, using the aft sections for a pair of mirrored double staterooms.
The H60 has a lightweight hull with a closed-cell core and infused with vinylester resin, laid up with clear isophthalic gelcoat to monitor the infusion process. A bulbed fin keel reduces side slip and also provides the stiffness to carry a tall rig with commensurate sail area.
