Living Aboard the Hylas H57: What Can You Expect?

The Hylas H57 has undoubtedly earned its reputation as Boat of the Year. With its innovative design, luxurious amenities, and impressive sailing performance, it’s no surprise the H57 is considered one of the best luxury bluewater cruisers in the world.

However, can you live aboard the H57 for extended cruising, or is this a yacht best suited for a weekend getaway?

Some of this luxurious yacht’s appeal comes from the fact that it doesn’t just allow you to live aboard—it lets you live in true luxury. If you’re considering living aboard the H57, here’s an overview of what you can expect on this one-of-a-kind boat.


Enhanced Lifestyle & Sophisticated Luxury

There’s nothing more exhilarating than living on your own boat, and the Hylas H57 makes it easier than ever to sail the open water without sacrificing the comforts of home. The H57’s lavish interior design surpasses expectations due to famed yacht designer Bill Dixon’s meticulous attention to detail.

With a three or four-cabin arrangement, the Hylas H57 offers excellent versatility and the ability to cruise with additional family, friends, or professional crew. Customization is an integral part of the build process, and there is always a willingness to work closely with clients in creating an interior that reflects their tastes.

The material selection available to the owner throughout the customization process is extensive and includes a range of various woods, upholstery options, fixtures, and fittings. The standard yacht comes styled with a teak interior and cabin sole. Still, other options include walnut and white oak with horizontal or vertical grains on the bulkheads, passageways, cabinetry, and teak and holly cabin sole for those who prefer a more traditional interior. The dimmable mood lighting and natural light below deck will make guests feel like they’re still relaxing in their own home.

Livability is a priority for Hylas, so providing comfort is no issue. Friends and family aboard the H57 have an open area below deck with a large master stateroom, spacious walk-through galley, and wide-open main salon with picturesque seascape views, ample seating, room to entertain, and no shortage of storage space.

While the base model was meticulously crafted to satisfy the most discerning buyer, there are hundreds of additional options and areas for customization to make your Hylas H57 one of a kind. Throughout the build process, you can expect your representative at David Walters Yachts to guide you step-by-step through the process, ensuring that it is precisely the yacht of your dreams.


So, is the H57 suitable for long-term living onboard? The answer is a resounding yes. 

Hylas has crafted a vessel of unmatched luxury, spaciousness, and versatility in the H57 that makes living aboard equally as comfortable on the water as it is at home. Due to its incredible ease of use, shorthanded crews or larger gatherings can man the award-winning bluewater cruiser for as long as they wish in any ocean condition.
