Hylas 46
$265,000 USD
46ft 3in

The Hylas 46 is designer German Frers’ solution to the challenge of creating a seakindly and well performing cruising boat. Exceptionally well thought out, the 46 provides adequate storage and tankage for offshore voyaging, while the Queen Long Shipyard construction has been proven solid in countless cruising boats over hundred of thousands of miles. The Frers design features relatively fine forward sections plus powerful sections aft, adding to the off-wind performance and space in the aft cabin. A long waterline ensures fast passages.

Kokopelli is hull number two of the production run. In 2014-16 she received a comprehensive update before the current owner’s cruise through the Panama Canal, to the South Pacific and up to the Pacific Northwest. During this update, the experienced owners focused on safety and real-world comfort at sea. Chainplates aft for a series drogue and a currently certified liferaft are good examples of the safety equipment. Most importantly, the sailing systems have been refined so that there is no need to go forward when shortening or increasing sail. The triple-headsail rig, with all sails on furlers, makes logging sea miles easy. The in-boom furling main makes reefing a simple and safe task.

Kokopelli is a rare find. Not only is she a well-known and proven model, but she’s also been prepared, maintained and equipped for serious long term cruising. Safety equipment and spares top the list of priorities. Kokopelli is truly ready for casting off for distant shores.

Interior Accommodations
The two stateroom Hylas 46 layout lends itself very well to two-couple cruising, giving each couple privacy and their own head.The forward head is in the bow, with plenty of space for a separate shower stall, head and vanity. A large overhead hatch provides ventilation. Moving aft, there is a double berth to port. With a lee cloth, this also makes a good sea berth. Four large drawers are under the berth. There is a hanging locker and storage to starboard.The main cabin features a semi-circular dinette to port, with an inboard seat mounted on slides so that it can be used when needed and tucked away when not. The dinette can be lowered to form a double berth. On the starboard side is a settee that pulls out to form large single berth.Lockers and shelves line the hull sides. The table contains flat storage for paper charts, and the table itself is hinged for access. There is storage under the seats.The engine is housed amidships under the companionway and galley island. There is outstanding engine access from the front and sides. In the space normally devoted to the genset aft of the engine, there is additional storage. The fore-and-aft galley is to starboard and has exceptional storage, a refrigerator and a freezer with separate temperature controls, and a three burner stove and oven. The sinks are on the centerline island.To port is the navigation center including the electrical panel and communication devices. The starting battery is under the navigation seat.Thanks to the Hylas 46’s powerful aft sections, the master stateroom aft is very spacious. A central hanging locker plus lockers port and starboard can easily accommodate large wardrobes.

Deck and Hull
The ABS approved construction features a solid glass hull construction. The lead keel is external lead bolted with 15 one-inch bolts. Kokopelli’s is the shallow draft version, drawing only 5’6”. The center cockpit has a full mesh enclosure, and the dodger is constructed with heavy-duty 1.25” tubing and Strataglass glazing.

Sails and Rigging
The deck and sail plan has been extraordinarily well planned for easy and safe sail handling in all conditions by a minimal crew. All reefing and furling can be done from the bank of stoppers adjacent to the electric winch next to the companionway. With the headsail, staysail and drifter all on furlers and the mainsail having in-boom furling, there is virtually never a need to go forward for sailing handling at sea.New Selden mast, boom and standing rigging to replace in-mast furling (2016)Chainplates replaced (2016)(3) Schaeffer headsail furlersSchaefer boom furling (2016)Mack Sails/Schaefer boom furling 9.5 oz. mainsail (2016)Mack Sails 160%, 2.5 oz.
