To sailors who know boats the words German Frers and Hylas go hand in hand with quality construction, quality engineering, and quality design. In the world of blue water offshore cruising there are few who would look past a Hylas 54 as the ultimate yacht. To many they are the last yacht they will own after a lifetime on the water.
Sirius, the Dog Star, brightest star of magnitude. A fitting name for a Hylas 54 of this caliber. She is a highly customized Hylas, more so than many of her sisterships. From her power plant, to her sail inventory, to her custom added cosmetic features she is a unique vessel. Every part of her outfitting was designed to make her a fast and comfortable boat to sail for a couple. Her sellers have kept her in turn key condition. You will find updated electrical, plumbing, and systems through-out.
Imagine yourself aboard the boat in the photos. Cruising to the islands in the winter, or perhaps crossing over to the Med? You sit on the teak folding seats at the stern rail as the world passes by, enjoying a meal in the protection of the cockpit, spending your days swimming and exploring the shore with the tender. You're aboard one of the worlds best performing and best built sailing vessels ever devised. It's a good feeling.
Her sailing abilities are unmatched in this class of yacht. An in-boom furling mainsail with full battens, giving the helmsman maximum power and performance with push button operation. Furling Quantum genoa and staysail for performance in all wind ranges, plus a Spinex top-down furling asymmetrical spinnaker. When the breeze falls off you are able to fall back to her custom fitted 170HP Yanmar. With over 400 gallons of custom fitted fuel capacity you can cruise the distance at speed and out-run weather or make happy hour at your destination.
Additionally Sirius is fully equipped for blue water passages including a newer dinghy and outboard, life raft, water maker, newer batteries, and much more.
Inside she is fitted with the favored raised salon layout with large picture windows, allowing in the maximum amount of natural light and also great views of the outside world passing by. There are two master cabins, one forward and another aft. The aft cabin is accompanied by a private head. There is also a bunk cabin for guests. Hylas' are well known for their cabin arrangements and also their galley's. A long passageway galley to the aft cabin with custom added refrigeration and counter top space. Your chef will be pleased with the generous room and ability to cook any meal.
Of course anyone can claim to be a blue water boat, but where the term meets its meaning is in the details. Generous mechanical access to the power plant and all systems for monitoring and repair while underway. Under floor access to pumps, tanks, batteries is easy to access. Wiring is laid out appropriately with extreme attention to detail. Compare any of these attributes to another manufacturer and you will see why Hylas is at the top of their game.
Sirius has cruised near and far in her sailing life. From the East Coast to the Atlantic, to the Med, and to the Caribbean she has visited far flung places that many have only heard of. Sirius just returned from the Caribbean this spring after successfully completing the Caribbean 1500. She is in her prime and poised to continue exploring the world. Her sellers have carefully maintained her to be in turn-key condition. Their journeys are over, and yours are about to begin. Compare her inventory, condition, and price to any other Hylas 54 on the market and you will see that she is the right boat for you.
