ROVER is an excellent representation of the H70 Flagship series by Hylas Yachts. She was designed by renowned German Frers and built by one of the world's most experienced quality yacht builders, Queen Long Marine, exclusively for Hylas Yachts. Now on her second owner, the yacht has benefitted from attentive ownership and professional management since new.
The spacious 4-stateroom, 4-head interior arrangement features gorgeous teak joinery with contemporary flat panel cabinetry, passageway doors, and a modern bamboo cabin sole with teak stringers. Her interior is in good condition and shows light use.
Immediately recognizable, the design of the Hylas H70 shows off a graceful sheer line and reverse counter stern with an integral swim platform and transom garage. ROVER just back from New England Boatworks has received a brand-new Whisper Grey Awlgrip paint job for the 2022 season. On the topsides, the yacht features a Linen Beige molded non-skid deck, aluminum toe rail, stainless steel handrails and hardware, and a walk thru dual helm center cockpit with teak planking on the sole and settees.
Whether you're a coastal cruiser, potential circumnavigator, or seeking a yacht with charter potential, ROVER is a luxury performance cruising yacht with the integrity, exquisite finish, and state-of-the-art systems necessary to go anywhere.

ROVER has a four cabin layout with a large VIP stateroom forward, a double guest cabin forward and to port, a guest/crew cabin with over under bunks off the aft starboard passageway, and a sizeable master stateroom aft. The VIP, guest/crew, and master staterooms feature ensuite private heads.
Interior Styling & Features:
ROVER features a wide and spacious main salon resulting from her 18 ft. of beam, large wrap-around raised salon windows, and two large overhead deck hatches with screens. To port, an L-shaped settee wraps around the large custom teak table with burled wood finish and multi-position folding leaves. To starboard is a full-length settee with a cocktail table. Both tables are upholstered with Ultraleather and may be lowered with adjustable pedestals. Outboard both settees are full-length cabinets along the length of the salon.
Forward VIP Stateroom
The forward VIP cabin is comfortable and welcoming with an island centerline queen berth, deep cabinets outboard and forward of the berth, and two substantial hanging lockers. At the foot of the berth are two drawers.
VIP Ensuite Head and Day Head with Shared Shower
The ensuite head for the VIP stateroom and the day head is accessible from the forward passageway. Each features mirrored medicine cabinets, fiddled Corian countertops, a white molded sink, and new freshwater flush electric VacuFlush heads. Both heads share a stall shower equipped with a linen closet outboard and a teak shower grate with a seat. Two 3-speed fans and opening portlights provide ventilation.
Forward Guest Stateroom
The guest cabin is located forward and to port. This versatile cabin can comfortably sleep two and features a double Pullman-style berth, abundant storage above and below the berth, a hanging locker, and a nightstand. This is a very light and well-ventilated cabin with three opening portlights, a large screened deck hatch, and a dorade vent overhead.
Aft Guest/Crew Cabin
Ideal for crew or occasional guests and kids, the aft guest cabin is accessed through the aft passageway to starboard. It features over-under single bunks with drawers, a tall hanging locker, and two opening portlights. Each bunk has reading lights and a 3-speed fan.
Aft Head with Ensuite Access from the Guest/Crew Cabin and Master Stateroom
Aft and to starboard, the aft head is accessible from both the guest/crew cabin and the master stateroom. This head includes mirrored medicine cabinets, a sink, a new freshwater electric VacuFlush toilet, a separate stall shower with a teak grate, a shower seat, and a linen closet. There is a 3-speed fan and opening portlights for ventilation in the head and shower.
With the beam of the Hylas H70 carried well aft, the master stateroom of ROVER is especially large and spacious. The centerline island berth has a width of 66 inches and is more significant than your standard queen. Overhead are two large deck hatches with OceanAir screens and shades, two opening portlights for superb ventilation, and two fixed portholes.
Storage and personal space are superb, with his and hers wardrobes, cabinets, desktop surfaces, and drawers to port and starboard. Additional cabinets and nightstands with fiddled shelving are located at the head of the berth. A bank of four drawers is situated at the foot of the berth. One great feature of the master stateroom is the dual ensuite heads. This configuration allows access to the private aft head (port) and the guest/crew cabin head (starboard).
Private Head Ensuite to Master Stateroom
To port, there is a private owner's head with mirrored medicine cabinets, a tall linen closet, sink, Corian countertops, freshwater electric VacuFlush toilet, and a massive separate stall shower with over 7' of headroom. Three opening portlights and a 3-speed fan provide ventilation.
ROVER features four heads and three separate stall showers; a forward head ensuite for the VIP stateroom, which shares a stall shower with the day head, and an ensuite head with stall shower for the aft guest/crew cabin, which is also accessible from the master stateroom, and the owners private head with stall shower ensuite to master stateroom.
The galley emphasizes space and functionality and is perfectly equipped for long-distance voyaging, cruising, or entertaining guests. The galley features four pullout refrigerator and freezer boxes, a dishwasher, a trash compactor, a convection oven microwave, a double basin sink, and a gimbaled three-burner stove with a Corian countertop insert for an expanded prep area. The cabinets are deep, with segmented storage for flatware and glasses, felt-lined drawers for cutlery and utensils, and loads of room for provisions and cookery.

The communication suite aboard ROVER enables connectivity anywhere on the globe and features a KVH Tracphone and Iridium Go (New 2018) satellite system. Radios include an ICOM 802 Single Sideband with Pactor II modem and ICOM M604 Very High-Frequency radio with Command mics at both the navigation station and helm.
The navigator station located mid-ship to starboard features an L-shaped desk with two banks of drawers, a three-way adjustable seat trimmed with black leather, an outboard chart table, and a forward-facing computer desk, each with folding desktops and storage inside.
Outboard of the navigator station, the yacht's systems can be closely monitored and controlled with various panels for the battery systems, water maker, and tank monitors. The navigation and communication equipment is mounted to a hinged panel, allowing easy access to the wiring and system components.
The hull of ROVER is constructed of solid, hand-laid, Twaron carbon aramid fiber reinforced GRP utilizing Vinylester resins and Isophthalic gel coat. Five layers of epoxy Interprotect and an additional three coats of bottom paint ensure superior protection against osmosis. The hull was designed with two watertight bulkheads; a collision bulkhead at the bow and a watertight stern section across the aft lazarettes. The rudder incorporates a 60% partial skeg, with the bottom of the rudder plane designed to be above the lowest point of the keel for grounding protection.
The deck is constructed of hand-laid laminates with a ¾ in. end grain balsa core. The deck is solid fiberglass in high-stress areas, where deck fittings take compressive or tensile forces. The hull to deck joint is chemically bonded with 3M 5200 and mechanically fastened with stainless steel through bolts.
The bow is well protected with a substantial 316 stainless steel stem fitting with a striker plate and double bow roller, a signature feature of every Hylas Yacht. In the forepeak is a near 10 ft deep sail locker with a segmented chain locker forward.
At the transom, an additional stainless-steel plate offers protection for the stern. The swim platform has LED courtesy lights, stainless steel handrails, a shower, and a folding swim ladder, perfect for enjoying water activities. A sizeable stern garage provides impressive storage space and ample room for a dive compressor and scuba equipment. Two large lazarettes are located to port and starboard. All deck lockers have Baily latches and independent overboard drains.
Manship stainless steel low-profile hatches, opening portlights with screen inserts, and two dorade boxes with stainless cowlings provide excellent ventilation below. The stern rail extends to midship and, along with the stanchions with uncoated double lifelines, are over 33 inches high and 1 ½ inches in diameter with substantial backing for safety at sea and comfort while moving about the deck.
One of the best features of INDEPENDENCE is the large lounge-style cockpit with walk-through access from the aft deck. Open and spacious, yet uncompromising toward the qualities which make for a serious offshore sailing yacht, such as foot bracing when the yacht heels, tall and comfortable backrests, and a cockpit environment that is dry and well protected in foul weather. In the center of the lounge, a beautiful high gloss varnished cockpit table with dual leaves and a built-in ice chest makes for a fantastic, al fresco dining experience for up to twelve.
The full-length tan Sunbrella bimini and soft dodger are joined with a connector piece that, when removed, allows a nice breeze through the cockpit. During foul weather, a full Eisenglass enclosure can quickly be installed. The removable side shade awnings offer extra protection on warm sunny days at anchor. All canvas, including the coordinating cover for the cockpit table, winches, hatch, and dinghy covers, were all constructed by Andy's Canvas of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The dual helm stations offer excellent sightlines and clear visibility of the sails, easy access to sail controls, bow and stern thruster joysticks, and navigation equipment to enable shorthanded sailing.
Always professionally maintained, ROVER has enjoyed the benefit of a highly attentive maintenance program since new.
Aft of the navigator station is the custom electrical distribution panel. This backlit panel is extraordinarily well organized, meticulously labeled, and as close to perfection as you can. While many yacht manufacturers are moving toward "simplistic" panels, Hylas has chosen the path of keeping every system on its dedicated breaker, enabling straightforward management of each component. The wiring itself is tinned as opposed to more corrosive copper. The bonding system consists of two 3-in. copper strips integrated into the hull and running the yacht's length on either side, which ground to the vessel's bronze thru-hull fittings.
