Hylas 44 is an elegant centre cockpit blue water sailing sloop and arguably their most successful model. She was extensively upgraded when the current owners purchased her in 2014 including new Furuno electronics , bow thruster, sat phone, wind generator, watermaker and new standing rigging, ready for their trip to the Caribbean. Now they have returned to the UK after their 5 year adventure and “Gloria” lived up to all their expectations.

She is lying ashore outside our office at Swanwick Marina, Southampton, for further information and photos or to arrange an appointment to view please contact Ancasta Swanwick on +44 (0)1489 854455 or email swanwick@ancasta.com Open 7 days a week.
