Advertiser's comments

Lightly used and highly specified example of the German Frers-designed Hylas 54 raised saloon centre cockpit. Rare to the market and one of the youngest examples to be found in Europe (She was originally supplied in Europe and is CE-marked).   COMMENTS:   Winner of the prestigious Cruising World Magazine ‘Boat of the Year’, the German Frers designed Hylas 54 has proven herself as a hugely successful and desirable blue water cruising yacht both in the US and in Europe.    This particular example was ordered to a very high custom specification for the European Hylas importer and has been very lightly used since then with low hours on all her systems and the added benefit of a recently fitted comprehensive B&G/Simrad instrument package. With her push-button rig, electric winches, bowthruster, generator, watermaker, air-con and satellite phone, there is very little to add to make DUET OF COWES the perfect world-girdler or simply an extremely comfortable cruising yacht/liveaboard.   Presently available exclusive of VAT but fully CE-marked (an important consideration over and above her US-based counterparts), DUET OF COWES should appeal to buyers from all markets. Please call for more details.   CONSTRUCTION   RCD Status:

  • CE Certification Directive 94/25/CE (Category "A" Ocean)
  Hull Construction:
  • The hull is hand laid up using TWARON; a carbon aramid (Kevlar) fibre with alternating FRP (fibre reinforced plastic) glass lay up.
  • Additional layers of TWARON are used in the bow section for increased impact resistance.
  • A solid laminate (ie. no core) is used for maximum strength and longevity.
  • Modern vinylester resins and isophthalic gelcoats are used for increased resistance to the effects of osmosis.
  • The gelcoat finish is white with blue style lines.
  • Below the waterline, the hull is yet further protected from the effects of osmosis by a two barrier coats of epoxy.
  • Coppercoat applied to underwater sections
  • The hull sides feature a teak rubbing strake with stainless steel capping. This rubbing strake runs the length of the hull sides.
  • The bow area is further protected by a stainless steel strike plate in the general anchor area. A protective stainless steel plate can also be found at the transom.
  • Internally, a watertight collision bulkhead is found ahead of the forward cabin with independent overboard drainage.
  • Aft are watertight stern sections protecting the owner’s cabin from water ingress to the aft lazarettes and stern lockers.
  Deck & Superstructure Construction:
  • Balsa-cored GRP deck & with solid GRP laminate used beneath deck fittings and in high-stress areas.
  • The deck and forward coachroof are overlaid with hand-picked teak planking.
  • Areas not covered in teak are finished in a high quality grey non-slip GRP finish.
  • The cockpit seating and bathing platform are also teak laid with teak grating above the cockpit sole
  • Raised solid teak bulwark is fitted along the lengths of the deck with stainless steel fairleads in way of mooring cleats.
  • The superstructure and forward coachroof also feature stainless steel or teak grab rails
  • Ventilation to below decks is via a number of opening alloy deckhead hatches, stainless steel cowl vents and stainless steel opening side ports.
  Keel & Rudder:
  • The keel is a fin section with a slight bulb to the base.
  • The keel material is solid lead, attached to the GRP bilge with 35mm acid resistant stainless steel bolt with transverse mounted 8mm backing plates.
  • The rudder is a semi-skegged GRP blade for optimal perform
