THe New h60
Introducing the Hylas H60. Conceived by world-class designer German Frers the H60 leads the way in modern luxury cruising. Embracing new technology in design and construction to further enhance the Hylas reputation for exquisite craftsmanship and great value. The Hylas H60 is a must see when considering a short handed circumnavigation, coastal cruising with friends and family or simply heading out in style for a day on the water.
The Hylas H60 brings a new level of innovative design and construction to a well established brand. We are excited to continue our long partnership with world class designer German Frers, once again testing the boundaries of performance, functionality and quality for blue water cruising yachts. We are also ensuring our reputation for great value stays intact. This new project being developed at the home of Hylas - Queen Long Marine, Taiwan - brings Hylas to a level of performance and head turning good looks that will certainly capture the attention of our competition.
Primarily designed to be light work when short handed, this uncomplicated sail plan can be handled without difficulty. A great fit for a couple looking for the modern cruising lifestyle. This exciting new development stays true to the Hylas core competence of safely crossing oceans in comfort and style.
