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.

"Dear Jordan Yachts - I write with great appreciation for all that Tom Harney has done for us. My wife and I have just purchased our first cruising boat and we plan to sail for a couple of years in the Caribbean with our three small children. Tom has been so much more than a broker and his experience, dedication and commitment to Jen and I have gone way beyond our expectations. In many ways, he is like an “adopted” father who is looking out for me his “adopted” son as we moved into uncharted waters. There have been countless examples of his "above and beyond" execution from our first phone call to ultimately closing on the boat. For example, the official closing of the paperwork could have been the closure of the transaction but to Tom, he was much more interested in seeing that we properly outfitted the boat and provided many recommendations from his 30+ years in the marine industry of who to use and what equipment is needed. In addition, he personally got involved in managing the outfit of the boat well beyond the official closing. Words can't express our appreciation and I would welcome any inquires from potential clients as to the positive experience with Tom Harney - On behalf of my family, a sincere thank you --- www.loveatfirstsail.com" - Marc Konesco s/v adagio
