This very lightly used 2008 Hylas 46 center cockpit cruiser is in fabulous condition.  The proven German Frers design was built by Queen Long Marine, and this original owner made tasteful selections of interior and exterior options, which compliment the robust Hylas standard deck, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. In addition, she has a custom Westerly Marine carbon fiber and safety glass Dodger and Bimini. The Bimini supports two adjustable solar panels.  For sailing convenience, she has a Schaeffer Gamma in-boom main furling system, which is run from a powered secondary winch, without interfering with the primary electric winches.

The interior is light and airy with large windows, custom teak cabinetry, raised panel doors, and a teak-and-holly sole. Ultra suede was used for all seating cushions.  She is LOADED with options.
