Shipyard Visit - Hylas Yachts

In March, Dean Salthouse travelled to Kaohsiung, Taiwan to visit the builders of the Salthouse Corsair and Hylas Yachts.

During our visit we were able to inspect the two hulls currently in build, one in final fit-out and the other in the lamination stages.

It’s not all sailing yachts at Hylas

Since 2015 the shipyard have been building our range of sedan motor yachts the Salthouse Corsair and Salthouse Icon.

The Corsair is marketed as the Salthouse Corsair in New Zealand and offered as the Hylas M44 and M49 elsewhere.

The Salthouse Corsair is now available around the world and is available for demonstration in the UK and USA.

About Hylas

The Huang family established their boatbuilding company in 1978 with the construction of a shipyard in the industrial city of Kaohsiung, home of many famous yachting brands including Horizon, Johnson, Ocean Alexander, Tayana, Jade, President, Hans Christian, Ta Chiao and Kha Shing.

The Hylas brand name was introduced in 1984 following the introduction of the German Frers designed Hylas 44 yacht. The Company remains in full family ownership with the third generation of Huang family now working throughout the business, both at the shipyard in Taiwan and also at their Palm Beach offices in the US.

In 2017 the company president Joseph Huang’s son Andy Huang was appointed the new CEO. Andy has instigated the opening of their US sales headquarters (Hylas Yachts are now sold factory direct in the US/Canadian markets) and the introduction of a brand new range of yachts from designers such as German Frers, Bill Dixon and the interior design gurus Hotlab from Milan. The first two examples of these new-generation designs are the Bill Dixon designed Hylas 57 and the German Frers/Hotlab designed Hylas 60. With two examples of each now in build at the shipyard.

Hylas 48 – Sailing Magazine Boat Test

Hylas-slide-3-1024x374.jpg

January’s issue of the US-published Sailing Magazine brings us a boat test report of the newly launched and multi-award-winning Hylas 48

“Bill Dixon has designed a shapely hull and deck with wraparound windows that help minimise the look of the tall deckhouse and center cockpit…”

Heading below, I was struck by how light and bright it was in the semi-raised saloon… Being semi-custom, the choices for interior layout and finishes are nearly endless. There are at least a dozen different layouts for the saloon alone…The owner’s cabin is aft, with a large centerline berth, settee and head with a separate shower. At every turn, there seems to be a hanging locker or storage cubby…”

“All systems are designed with offshore passage making in mind. The fuel management system has been cleverly engineered to move the 290 (US) gallons of fuel between the different tanks through a fuel filter, eliminating the need to bleed the system. “The fuel polishing systems was originally a client idea that we made standard because fuel sits for a long time in the different tanks and you want to get the water out,” Pschorr (Hylas Service Director) said. “And if you are on a long passage you can move the fuel to the windward side…”

“The Hylas 48 is set up for shorthanded sailing and it was simple to unfurl the main and genoa. The mainsail sheets to a traveller and single winch behind the helm, and with the end-boom sheeting, it provided excellent control. It was easy to reach all winches from the helm and the optional electric jib winches made tacking easy…The sailing was so relaxing that we didn’t realize how far down the bay we had sailed…”

“The Hylas 48 is meant for long passages. With its beefy construction, sophisticated systems for living aboard for long stretches and seakindly sailing characteristics, you just have to ask, “What’s the next waypoint?”

Newsletter Issue 1 - 2018 - WHATS NEW FOR SALTHOUSE

Happy New Year
 
It's been one of the earliest and best summers we have had for many years here in Auckland.  I hope you have been able to get out on the water and enjoy.
 
We took delivery of our own Salthouse Corsair 44’ mid-year after the sale of our Salthouse 63’. While this is the 5th Salthouse Corsair 44 sedan version we have owned, having a couple of years in the bigger boat totally highlighted how good the Corsairs are and perhaps why they are without a doubt the most built powerboat hull in NZ history.

We have enjoyed lots of fun times on the water this summer with family and friends. While out on the water I really noticed the presence of the various Corsair models wherever we went and it's very rewarding to think what Dad started all those years ago is still going strong.
