Additional Information

The Hylas 49 evolved from the Sparkman & Stephens designed Hylas 47. Under the supervision of Tony Seifert, Hylas increased the freeboard by 2 inches which resulted in improved headroom. The additional LOA allowed a more spacious cockpit. The raked bow and rounded bottom provide excellent performance in a seaway recognized by international cruisers worldwide.
