New to the market with full details coming soon. Feather is a fully equipped custom built turn key offshore cruiser that is like no other Hylas 46 built. Feather is a must see and contact the listing agent for additional details.  

The Hylas H46 is a serious contender when space is a premium. This yacht offers many of the benefits usually only found on much larger vessels. With its powerful combination of elegance, innovation, and precision, this sailing vessel performs flawlessly as it glides across the ocean.

On deck there are unusually wide side decks: a feature that I like. Excessively wide cabintrunks 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.

Center cockpits can eat up valuable volume and, as a consequence, are often proportionately too small in these models. This cockpit has a 6-foot-long well and is 7 feet 6 inches long at the seat top. I'd like a bigger cockpit, but I can't see where to sacrifice room below to make that possible.

The rig is a masthead sloop with two sets of spreaders, in-line shrouds and a babystay forward. I'd like to see the babystay gone, as it's not fun dragging your new jib around a babystay. I would guess that, in many lighter conditions, the babystay could be brought back to the mast and kept out of the way. I would rather induce some prebend into the mast and use runners when it breezes up rather than use a babystay. I like the spring of the sheerline: it is pure Frers.

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. It still looks a little too stacked-up around the cockpit for my eye. However, 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.

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 sailplan, 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. This may be all the boat you'll ever need!
