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

The Hylas 44 from designer German Frers is a center cockpit offshore cruiser known for her great looks, low profile and build quality by Queen Long Marine of Taiwan. Introduced in 1984 production spanned eight years before evolving into the Hylas 45.5 and then the Hylas 46 both also German Frers designs. Hylas 44s are prized by offshore sailors for their accommodating layout, sea kindly motion and easily driven hull, she carries her maximum beam well aft allowing for a spacious and comfortable aft cabin and great stability off the wind.

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 635 mast clearance off the water.

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