The cockpit is the first clue this Hylas is different. Divided into two sections, each with a wheel, it allows the owner to focus on running the boat while guests are nestled in the adjacent relaxation zone. A Targa-style arch or optional T-Top separates the mainsheet from the cockpit and provides protection from the elements. Because the 57’s 17-foot beam could cause a single rudder to cavitate, twin rudders are used to provide uninterrupted control. A shoal keel with a wing allows the boat to draw only 6 feet of water or a cruising fin with a bulb drawing 8 feet. A whopping 1,636 sq. ft. of sail allows the 57 to make way quite nicely, with a 150-hp Volvo diesel for windless days. Down below, the 57’s generously-sized skylights provide natural lighting in the salon, while all the layout options feature an owner’s stateroom that’s best described as “cavernous” due to the wide beam and high topsides. It’s the ideal choice for the adventurous cruising couple; HylasYachts.com.
