“It’s time to push on the accelerator” is what they must have been thinking at the headquarters of Hylas Yachts, a brand of Taiwanese-built luxury yachts and sailboats owned by Queen Long Marine. For the design of the “sailboat” part, the shipyard made use of important collaborations such as the one with German Frers and has now decided to launch from this year on motor yachts with two units: M44 and M58. These are fast and versatile powerboats, perfect for cruising and day trips, with a good attitude toward fishing, designed for the contemporary lifestyle: interior luxury, spacious cockpit and great attention to detail. These features make Hylas’ yachts very elegant and refined. The shape of the bow is designed to cut the wave well and glide easily with fairly powerful motors. Both boats reach about 30 knots with good endurance on long stretches, even across oceans.
Focus on M44 Hylas
Built to travel on large oceans or explore serene lakes, the M44 Hylas is powered by a TwinYanmar8 two-cylinder 370-hp engine that propels the boat to a top speed of nearly 30 knots. The interiors are simple, yet elegant and ideal for creating a cozy and tasteful environment. Large front and side windows exponentially increase the boats interior brightness, while opening windows ensure good air circulation. The helm console is particularly compact and houses a 14-inch multi-function display and two engine displays in addition to all other necessary electronics. The master cabin is located in the bow, while you have two additional berths thanks to the convertible dining tables. Standard features include underwater exhaust, teak cockpit lining, teak wood interior, and Raymarine electronics package and Sealand head system.
