The Hylas 46 is a beautiful center cockpit layout with that wonderful aft owner's private stateroom and ensuite head and shower and an incredibly lovely pullman berth stateroom on the port side and the large head forward for guests. The walkthrough galley to starboard is classic and it works! Offshore it is safe and secure and at anchor the incredible counter space is welcome. The navigation station is forward facing on the port side facing forward.

When you enter the companionway from the center cockpit, you will instantly be impressed with the space with its lavish headroom, the light from the cabin windows, and the beautiful teak joinery. Hylas elegance abounds with the unique curves and rather sumptuous layout with the curved dinette to port and settee to starboard with cabinetry outboard. The dinette has a pull out bench seat that allows generous comfortable seating for six. The circular dinette table also lowers to make a nice double berth for visitors. The teak and holly cabin sole is varnished in high gloss and has been protected with carpets that compliment the upholstery. The numerous hatches have Ocean Air screens and blinds in the fore and aft staterooms. The quality and luxury is apparent and you will appreciate the attractive appointments from the high quality fixtures to the lighting complete with dimmers and reading lamps. The creature comforts are complete with a Cruise Air AC system with two compressors and the entertainment system with XM Satellite radio, 12 CD changer, and Pioneer stereo with a great sound system.

The center cockpit with its dodger, bimini and full enclosure extends the living space and the aft deck and swim platform becomes a lovely entertainments space as well.
