Started in 1985, the 42 is one of the earliest Hylas models. Frers designed her fast, similar to his Swans. If you are looking for an aft cockpit Hylas, the 42 is yours. Amazingly for an aft cockpit design, she has an aft stateroom and centerline queen. The trade-off is low headroom aft and more superstructure on deck. She has a split cockpit and comes like all Hylases in shoal (6’2″) and deep (7’0″) versions. Her rudder is a spade not skeg unlike other Hylases. Queen Long produced her until 1990. At that point with the growing influence of Caribbean Yacht Charters, they decided to focus on larger designs for charter like the 44 and 47. Please see our Hylas Models Page for information about other Hylases.
