EXUBERANCE's layout is the classic German Frers Hylas 46 2-cabin 2-head design. The master stateroom aft features a centerline queen berth and an abundance of storage in teak lockers and cabinets. The ensuite master head includes an enclosed shower and also serves as a secondary passageway aft.

The efficient and well-equipped linear galley to starboard is also the primary passageway connecting the master stateroom and main salon.

The spacious main salon is light, airy and beautifully appointed with solid and laminated blonde teak throughout, louvered locker doors and a lovely bamboo sole that contributes to the overall bright and cheerful atmosphere. The large dinette to port has U- shaped seating for six and a gorgeous varnished teak table. A single sea berth is to starboard. The fully-equipped nav station is to port of the companionway.

Forward of the main salon are the guest quarters. There is a large double pullman berth to port with numerous storage lockers to starboard. The guest head with shower is forward in the forepeak which makes efficient use of space and affords complete privacy.

Both the master stateroom and guest quarters are made extra comfortable with custom fitted Tempurpedic mattresses and both formal and informal bedding sets.


Deck & Hull

EXUBERANCE was built at the Queen Long facility in Taiwan which is well known for building extremely sturdy hand-laid solid glass hulls - a key factor that sets Hylas apart for seaworthiness and safety. Other notable features include extra-wide decks carried aft of the center cockpit and a stepped transom with teak non-skid for safe and simple access to the water and tender.

Engine & Mechanical

Twin/switchable Racor fuel filters are mounted on the inside of the hinged panel for simple access and maintenance. Hinged panels to port and starboard provide equal access from both sides.
