The new Hylas M49 yacht offers owners a spacious yet fuel-efficient vessel for coastal cruising.
Hylas, the recognised sail and powerboat builder, has introduced an exciting new offering at the 2023 Miami International Boat Show. According to the yacht builder, the new Hylas M49, built at the brand’s shipyard in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, encapsulates all the best-cruising yacht qualities: she is a spacious, fuel-efficient, fast, and exceptionally well-crafted yacht.
As an entertainment platform, the M49 truly excels with a barbecue, multiple heads option, excellent refrigeration, a full galley with a dinette, and a hydraulic swim platform.
The yacht also has highly functional features. A helm station that is best in class with excellent all-round visibility and no blind spots from stem to stern. These features exist within a footprint that uses natural light to create a bright and inclusive environment, all built with the expert level of attention to detail that customers have long come to expect from Hylas.
The M49 was designed in conjunction with New Zealand firm Salthouse. The designer is an exceptionally experienced creator of Down East style vessels, with a well-proven track record of seaworthy, efficient, and stylish boats to their credit. Salthouse hull designs in particular have a strong heritage of commercial fishing and offshore-angling vessels. The result is a luxurious yacht that is supremely rugged and capable of withstanding nearly any sea, and which provides a comfortable and confidence-inspiring ride.
With an overall length of 15-metres and a beam of 4.12-metres, further features that will make this yacht stand out from her competition include an aft galley that’s excellent for entertaining, spacious living areas, a handcrafted wooden interior, two staterooms and two heads, multiple dining tables, an optional washing machine, and twin 370-horsepower Yanmar engines that offer dependable and sporty propulsion.
The M49 will join her smaller sistership, the M44 as part of Hylas’s power lineup, which is quickly becoming one of the industry’s finest.
