Introduced at the 2010 Newport and Annapolis shows, the Hylas 56 (or Frers 55) is a stretched version of the popular 54-foot model by German Frers. LOA is 56′ 3″. Cruising World awarded her the Best Premium Sailboat Over 55-Feet for 2011. Frers stretched the design from the leading edge of the keel aft for a longer cockpit. He redesigned the stern and superstructure for both the standard and raised saloon versions. The changes increase the interior volume in the aft stateroom with more beam and 2″ more headroom. The raised saloon version has more stylized doghouse windows. Please contact us or Hylas Yachts USA for more information and the availability of production slots.
