Hylas H57, an evolution of the bluewater cruiser

2 MINUTES READ

Designed to be handled easily by a couple

Hylas Yachts presented the H57, a bluewater sailing vessel that brings the builder’s core values to accomplished sailors seeking a mix of proven construction, updated technology, and crisp fresh lines. With an inventive use of technology, the H57 is designed to be handled by a couple. A Solent rig with a 135% genoa on the forestay is matched to a self-tacking jib for upwind legs to make sail- handling easy, even in heavy air.

An asymmetrical spinnaker can supplement the reaching sail. The hull shape is true to Hylas principles offering speed and comfort offshore, with a solid-lead fin keel designed to reduce side slip while stiffening the hull to manage the large 152 m2 sail area. Dedicated trim stations confine the sailing work of the H57 to specific deck areas. Electric winches add fingertip control to furling and tending the sails, while in-mast furling simplifies reefing. The hydraulic backstay and boomvang are controlled from the helm stations as well.

The spacious Hybrid cockpit promotes socializing, but is still convenient to the aft helm stations

The Hybrid cockpit eases socializing, but is still convenient to the aft helm stations, where the business of sailing may be conducted. The H57 has an optional hard-top bimini designed to flow with her lines, yet enhance versatility and comfort on deck. The Hylas H57 is available with a three- or four-cabin layout, with each designed to create an easy-living space for a cruising couple who will live aboard or cruise extensively with family and friends. Because Hylas is a true semi-custom builder, owner input on the interior is a key part of each H57.
