Hylas 44
$93,000 USD
44ft in

The Hylas 44 design comes from a long lineage of stoutly built, comfortable, blue water cruising vessels. The center cockpit design compliments the low freeboard and keeps crew safe on offshore passages. Marama has a fine entry at the bow, which slices through choppy seas upwind and tracks well downwind. The hull design carries the beam well aft creating a generous aft stateroom with ensuite head and nicely proportioned main salon. The layout is well thought out and utilizes space effectively. The forward stateroom has an offset berth to port and a private head with tons of storage options and 6’3” of headroom. The design changed only slightly over the eight years of production and was replaced by the Hylas 46, proving the Hylas cruising yacht concept was one for the ages.   

Marama is a great platform ready to be outfitted with modern features and taken offshore once again. She features an electric propulsion system, two solar panels and six NorthStar AGM batteries to power the boat underway. When you aren’t traveling silently through the water the Volvo Penta D1-20 Polar Power DC generator charges the batteries, daintily sipping fuel from the 80gal capacity diesel tank. This generator outperforms conventional AC generators and conforms to future, strict emission regulations. The capabilities of the Polar Power DC generator excels at charging large banks of batteries, is lighter, more fuel efficient and has a reduction in noise and vibration than conventional generators. Marama also has a new Webasto hydronic heater and Spectra watermaker.  Her interior will benefit from a trip to the spa but her pedigree speaks volumes.  Come let Marama spark your imagination and take you swiftly onto your next adventure!

Interior accommodation  

Beginning forward, the guest stateroom features an offset queen-sized berth with 7’ 4” of length, loosing just 1’ on the inboard side. The cushions are 6” thick and provide a restful night’s sleep. Three teak drawers under the bunk hold smaller items and the large 20” deep by 40” tall hanging locker has room for larger items. Six cabinets with latching doors line the hull over the bunk. A dressing bench sits below the hanging locker with storage below. A cabin fan and a 24” by 24” deck hatch with a screen makes for nice airflow and good lighting. This cabin has 6’3” of standing headroom that carries into the ensuite head. 

The forward head has a composting toilet with an additional liquid bin, stainless sink and pressurized hot and cold water. Three storage cabinets line the outboard side of the hull above the Formica countertops. Two overhead LED lights keep the space bright and the teak shower grate prevents stagnant moisture on the sole.  

The main salon includes a 6’ settee on the starboard side and a dinette to port that can easily accommodate six people. The large 51” by 34” teak salon table is centerline with a cut out for the keel-stepped mast. The table drops down and has a custom cushion that drops into place for a good sea berth. Two overhead deck hatches with screens and six dome lights light the space and storage compartments well.  Four compartments on the starboard side and three on the port are deep and functional. The fuel maker is accessible under the forward end of the port settee with a water tank sitting just aft. The starboard settee has storage behind with a water tanks and refrigerator compressor below.  

Aft of the main salon dinette is the forward facing nav station, housing all of the vessels control panels.  

A shower stall is just behind the nav station and leads into the head. The shower stall has an overhead dome light, small portlight for ventilation, and teak shower grate. The shower is controlled with a handheld faucet and a flip up shower seat is outboard with storage in a cabinet above. The head compartment is just aft through a door.  The stainless sink is set into the Formica countertops with three storage cabinets outboard.  

Through the head is the owner’s stateroom that features a conventional sized queen walk around berth. There is 6’ of headroom and adequate space for two people to dress. Storage is plentiful with four cabinets, four drawers and one hanging locker. Three portlights and one large overhead hatch make this space bright and well ventilated.  

The galley is inline on the starboard side opposite the engine compartment. The double stainless sink sits under the companionway for more efficient draining and has a single lever faucet. Opposite and outboard is a 3-burner propane stove and the countertop and forward accessed refrigerator is inline. A pullout cutting board slides into the counter showcasing the late 80’s era. The Whirlpool microwave oven is above the countertop with storage below concealed by sliding doors. A door at the aft end of the galley accesses the aft stateroom.

Deck and Hull 

Marama was hand laid by Queen Long Shipyard in Tiwan in 1988. The Hylas design is of solid fiberglass construction in the hull with a cored deck for weight savings. It is solid in places of high stress areas such as where tracks or winches are mounted. The deck is fastened to the hull with stainless bolts and 5200 3M sealant for mechanical and chemical bonding. The build is of high quality and meant to stand the test of time and harsh marine environments. 

The hull has a narrow waterline forward leading to a fin keel and skeg hung rudder. The bottom was painted in 2019 with Pettit Antifouling bottom paint. Above the waterline Marama has a blue gel coat with gold cove stripe and Hylas insignia at the bow. Her name is in large, easy-to-read, scroll font gold letters on both aft quarters. A teak rub rail carries the length of the shearline with a stainless outer capping.  

The Hylas 44 has 30” wide side decks with an anodized aluminum toe rail to keep crew safely onboard. Stainless steel stanchions are 30” tall and carry double lifelines (with four boarding gates) running between stainless stern pushpit and bow pulpit. Double stainless bow rollers carry a 45lb CQR anchor as a primary and 35lb Manson Supreme as a back-up. The Maxwell windlass powers the ground tackle swiftly with two buttons set into the foredeck with a pressurized washdown pump to keep thing clean. There are six mooring cleats in total with open chocks in the toe rail to prevent chafe. Teak grab rails along the cabin top provide secure handholds moving about the boat and make a good spot for stowing a boat hook. ¾ of the way aft is the center cockpit. Stepping over the cockpit combing you are kept safe from the elements by the large dodger. Unlike other designs with high center cockpits, this design feels and is secure and protected. All sail control lines are led to the large Barient winches.  The mainsheet traveler is just aft of the helm station. The aft deck has a large amount of space for storage below deck and room for fishing, grilling or activities. The stainless dinghy davit hangs off the transom and makes the dinghy a great place for temporary storage
