Delivered in 2008 (hull No.61), she was sailed around the Caribbean by her first owners who used her excellent power-management systems to live ‘off grid’ for several months at a time. Sold to her current owners in Annapolis in 2017, she was renamed MAZU and replaced her owner’s much-loved and well-travelled Tayana 47. Sailed across the Altantic during 2018, MAZU is now in Europe and is offered for sale as her owners now wish to buy a larger Hylas.
Please Note – MAZU is a US-registered and US-supplied Hylas 46 and as such is not compliant with the European Union's Recreational Craft Directive (CE-marking). Accordingly, the yacht is not for sale to EU nationals within EU waters. Post-compliancy for RCD may be possible at additional cost. Please contact us for further information.
We bought the Hylas 46 because we were looking for a safe, reliable, sound blue-water, reasonably fast vessel, which could be comfortably sailed by two people. Having previously sailed over 10,000 thousand miles in an older Tayana and a modern ‘mass produced’ boat, the Hylas fitted our bill for a transatlantic crossing plus extended coastal cruising.
We are looking to sell her because our previous plans and aspirations have changed somewhat. She will be missed as she has the ‘off-the-grid’ gear one needs for both long- and short-term passages.
Form and function combine with the keen eye and steady hand of renowned designer German Frers to produce this "must-see" cruising yacht. A true watertight collision bulkhead forward and another aft define the 46 as a serious offshore yacht.
But it gets even better. Step below into a world of refined elegance, beautifully hand-finished teak furniture, splendid totally private comfort for two couples, plus room for up to three additional guests. Abundant storage, unsurpassed electrical and mechanical systems. Top-shelf hardware in every application. A fantastic seagoing galley worthy of a much larger yacht.
In addition to a commanding specification that has been refined by thousands of miles at sea and the invaluable input of our many yacht owners, the Hylas 46 sparkles with a confident profile, a robust and modern sail plan, and a generous beam that carries well aft to provide both excellent stability and more interior volume than other yachts, all in just 46 feet.
YACHTING PRESS REVIEWS:
Cruising World Review:
"The Hylas 46 comes with extensive standard equipment and an abundance of top quality name brand gear. I deem her a 'must see' for any serious cruiser." "Certainly worth noting, the Hylas 46 gets "electrical panel award of the year" both for access to wiring and superb quality of its installation." "The Hylas 46 is also notable for an interior comfortable enough to border on plush and systems hard to beat for their meticulous installations." "There is excellent (engine) access at the front with further access through panels on three sides... the plumbing and thru hulls are meticulously labelled and easy to reach" "This is classic German Frers..."
Perry Design Review:
“The people at Hylas have brought us a series of cruising yachts drawn by German Frers and built at the Queen Long yard in Taiwan. I always liked the clean and modern styling of this yard's detailing. They've never built one of my designs, but I always wished they would.
Frers has one of the best eyes in the business, and his track record - from Maxis to Grand Prix racers - speaks for itself. This new Hylas is an effort to update the line and build on the center-cockpit concept.
At first glance at the profile you can see the effect of today's emphasis on sailing length. Overhangs forward and aft have been eroded away to a DWL of 39 feet and a D/L of 196. This 46-footer has an L/B ratio of 3.36. It's a very attractive hull shape with a pronounced forefoot knuckle at the cutwater and an even distribution of rocker fore and aft.
The rudder is a partially balanced spade with a small fractional skeg, which allows for a lower bearing for strength. The Hylas 46 has staterooms for two couples, with additional sleeping space available on the main cabin settees… The Hylas also has two heads and each has an adjoining shower stall.
Note also that the Hylas has moved the head forward of the berth in what we usually call a Pullman-style double forward. The shape of the bow severely limits how far forward you can push the head, with the result being that, in this model, you get a big forepeak.
On deck there are unusually wide side decks: a feature that I like. Excessively wide cabin trunks can and do create the feeling of airiness and space below; but they inhibit side deck width and put undue pressure on sheet leads and deck arrangements in general.
You can trust that German Frers would not give you a slug. This boat has the numbers and the pedigree to give it good performance. Aesthetically, center-cockpit boats under 50 feet are a challenge, but this one is okay… I do like the sexy hull shape; and it is for this reason alone I think the new Hylas 46 will make some of its competition look dated.”
