In the early 1980s, Stevens Yachts built 56 Stevens Custom 47s at Queen Long Shipyard in Taiwan before selling the molds to the yard, which continued to build it as the Hylas 47 and, later, as the Hylas 49.
The Sparkman & Stephens-designed Stevens 47 has a solid-fiberglass hull and a balsa-cored deck. It's beamy, but the powerful cutter rig, low-deadrise hull, and elongated fin keel put it among the faster cruisers of its era. The hull's sharp entry eliminates pounding in all but the heaviest weather, and its easy motion in a seaway is attributable in part to the fact that the weights of such major components as the engine, which is well forward under the cockpit, are centered well away from the ends.
Belowdecks, the tone is set with teak: solid teak, teak veneer, and a very solid teak-and-holly sole. Passages to port and starboard of the companionway, each with just over 6 feet of headroom, connect the saloon to the large master stateroom and aft head. The galley occupies the port walkway; to starboard is a full, forward-facing nav station. The engine, beneath an ample "kitchen" counter under the cockpit well, is fully accessible on three sides.
