Available for SaleMrs. Jones54' 2009 Hylas 

'Mrs. Jones' is the former 'Mystical Traveler', purchased in 2014 by the current owners. Like the original owners, 'Mrs. Jones' has been well maintained, lightly used, and is under a yacht management program at her winter location in Palmas Del Mer in Puerto Rico.

During the offseason Mrs. Jones has been kept on the hard in Grenada. Under her current ownership she has spent one season in the Bahamas, and the rest sailing the Caribbean except for during Covid she was not used for one season. Her light use means that the equipment aboard has also been lightly used, with only 2,000 original engine hours.

Overview

Hylas 54 Review

Hylas 54 ReviewDavid Walters Yachts

The Hylas 54 has a well-earned reputation for strength, comfort, and quality construction, systems and hardware. Designed by German Frers and built by Queen Long. While no longer in production, the Hylas 54 remains one of the most popular choices for cruising couples with ambitions of distant cruising. Versatile and fast, the yacht is exceptionally capable in a variety of sea-states.

The Hylas 54 is most commonly cutter rigged with a Selden triple spreader aluminum stoway mast, a desirable option popular among many is the in-boom Leisure furling main. The modern cutter sail plan provides a wide range of selections to fit all sailing conditions. Ease of operation is provided by thoughtful leads of sheets and halyards along with electric or hydraulic furling mainsail, staysail, and headsail.

The hull is constructed of fiberglass-twaron, a carbon aramid fiber with alternating solid FRP glass layup. The glass is hand laid with no core and utilizes vinylester resins and isophthalic gel coat for superior protection against osmosis and hull blistering. The deck is cored with end grain balsa except in high-load areas such as deck fittings where it is solid. The hull and deck joints are chemically and mechanically fastened with a wide flange and 3M 5200 and stainless steel bolts on 4” centers with backing plates. Interior bulkheads are tabbed on all sides. Massive floors create a rigid hull with plenty of athwartship support. The fin keel is solid lead and bolted to the hull with 35mm stainless steel bolts, which in turn are supported by an 8mm stainless steel backing plate."
