The Hylas 48 incorporates solid hand-laid fiberglass layup with no core and using vinylester resins and Isophthalic Gel-coat.

Watertight bulkheads are located forward of the forward cabin with independent overboard drainage as well as at the stern section across aft lazarettes and stern locker.

The deck is constructed of hand laid GRP with end grain balsa core with solid fiberglass in all areas for deck fittings and high-stress areas.

The stern locker also has a dedicated auto bilge pump plus manual over-ride in cockpit. The deck is finished with contrasting non-skid.
