If the 44 used to be the core of what Hylas stood for, I see that now as the 46. If you need any proof, the company owners themselves own a 46 up in Marblehead and daysail her. It was 1995 when Hylas started production on the 46 model. The 46 is the final evolution of the 44 and 45.5 series. While the 45.5 added the sugar scoop stern to the popular 44 hull, the 46 completes the integration. She has a fully extended design by Frers. The standard layout swaps the V-berth and head of the 44 making the head forward and guest stateroom aft portside. The cabin trunk is sleeker, and the forefoot flattened. The bridge clearance is higher to 63′ with the same drafts of 5’5″ shoal and 6’5″ deep. Included are all the same features, plush accommodations and quality materials that characterize Hylas. The 46 is in production as of 2010 with one of our lower wait times of 6 months to a year. Please see our Hylas Models Page for information about other Hylases. Contact us or Hylas Yachts USA for the status of open production slots. Continue reading “Hylas 46 Review: Owners’ Choice” »

Hurricane Safety: Part III – Preparing For and Choosing Dockage

Filed under: Miscelaneous — Tags: , , — Robert Jordan @ 7:54 pm

Editor’s Note: This is a continuation of our series on hurricane safety. Hurricane season started June 1st. In part I, Rob told a story of hurricane survival. In part II, we outlined, the safest dockage locations on the New River. Here, we will discuss actually docking.

Finding a safe location is one thing, finding a good slip and docking in the slip are another. One sailor docked in a safe location in the Virgins and left his boat to ride out the hurricane on shore. When he came back, his boat was mangled against the dock. Her bowsprit was ripped off and lay tangled against the bow. The mooring had broke loose, and he had not secured her enough with lines and fenders. In hurricane damage, not only the location but also the dock and docking equipment are vulnerable. Continue reading “Hurricane Safety: Part III – Preparing For and Choosing Dockage” »

Hurricane Safety – Part II: Hurricane Hideouts of the New River

Filed under: Miscelaneous — Tags: , , — Robert Jordan @ 3:15 pm

Hurricane season started June 1st. This post continues our series on safety in South Florida. In Part I: Crisis in Culebra, Rob described the terrors of David and Frederick in Culebra. He struggled to find a safe place to moor or dock. Here, we’ll tell you where to find safety on the New River. Please, also refer to our New River navigation guide and list of bridges.

Side canals off the New River are excellent hurricane hideouts. Avoid the main channel. Tide, current, and flotsam will batter your yacht. Where are these side canals? Today, Jordan Yachts will guide you to the safest spots.

Imagine you are powering down the New River. You are off Shirtail Charlies past 17th and between the Andrews and Fourth Avenue bridges. To your left is Ernies, the north star of the New River. Go past the Fourth Avenue bridge. Watch out for the powerlines! To your right is our first stop, Coolies Landing. Coolies Landing is a city marina and just the kind of dockage to avoid. It is on the main channel and vulnerable to current and tide. And Coolies is not that deep down the New River. For excellent hideouts, we will go down nigh the tips of the river’s snaking tentacles.

Hurricane Safety: Part I – Crisis in Culebra

Filed under: Miscelaneous — Tags: , , , — Robert Jordan @ 6:26 pm

Hurricane season started June 1st. This post is part one of a guide to finding safety in the New River. It will tell a story of how Rob Jordan rode out the double whammy of David & Frederick in the late 1970’s. Also, see our New River Guide and List of Bridges for navigational help.

I was down by St. Thomas sailing on my old wooden sailboat, Chinook, when a buddy of my brother’s came by. Hurricane David was coming any day, and everybody was seeking shelter. The buddy said he knew a great place. We would go to Culebra between here and Puerto Rico where the Navy used to base. It had a quiet harbor with one entry and not too many people around.

Culebra is an island between Puerto Rico and St. Thomas

So I sailed over on Chinook and he on his ferro-cement boat. We anchored off the lee shore, had dinner on his boat, and waited for David. All a sudden the biggest blackest storm cloud rose overhead. My buddy said, “You better get back to your boat.” I about dove in my dinghy — that’s how little time I had. It was blowing 30 and pouring.

"Thanks very much for your fine service in selling my Fairline 50. From finding a nearby slip, still and video photographic presentations, to selling the boat, it was all done very well. Of special note was Kathy Jordan in your office who constantly kept me up to date on activity and handled the closing document necessities and wire transfers quickly and efficiently. She was a pleasure to work with." - DM, MY Surf Song
