ABOUT MOON TAXI

The Hylas 44' is a high quality cruising yacht with lovely lines drawn with a graceful sheer by renowned German Frers, providing exceptional performance with the ability to take you anywhere in the World. Her fine fit and finish is a result of the exceptional quality of the Queen Long yard, where the Hylas is built, and features low center cockpit, wide side decks, a comfortable interior and excellent sailing performance. Her solid teak interior features highly detailed louvered locker fronts and dovetailed drawers, beautiful workmanship by her builder. Two spacious staterooms, a large salon with drop leaf table and a walk through galley provide exceptional interior living space - far larger than most of her contemporaries. The Hylas 44 can easily do the Intracoastal Waterway with its 63'5" mast clearance off the water.

“Moon Taxi” is a perfect live-aboard or long term cruiser and ready for Caribbean cruising now.

Comments The Hylas 44 has proven to be one of the best all round cruisers in the mid-40's size range. It is a fast, seaworthy sailor.

The lines drawn by renowned German Frers are lovely with a graceful sheer. The 44s are very strong and rugged, and have logged hundreds of thousands of miles of offshore cruising.

The comfortable two stateroom, two head interior, and large galley and salon result in an efficient offshore layout as well as a superb live-aboard and coastal cruiser. The Hylas 44 can do the Intracoastal Waterway with its 63'5" mast clearance off the water.

This 44 is fantastically equipped with nearly every extra and option that cruisers and offshore cruisers dream of.
