Seller's Description

UPDATE May 21st 2022. We have arrived at Hampton, Virginia. The boat should be ready for potential buyers to start viewing it from Friday the 3rd of June onward. Please let us know if you would like to view it, and what date and time you propose to visit.

2007 model Hylas 49, hull #58. The H49 is a solid classic, well-known as a sea-kindly long-distance cruiser with great performance. They have high-quality craftsmanship and the construction integrity is well-proven.

This one had every possible factory upgrade and option installed when it was built, and has absolutely everything you could want for long-distance offshore passage-making. It has had exceptional care and maintenance from attentive, and experienced owners. Not a lot of the Hylas 49s have made it to the market in the last few years, and none as highly optioned as this one.

She has all of the well known, comprehensive Hylas standard features including dual fresh water pressure pumps, exemplary electrical system, bronze thru-hull valves, full ground bonding, abundant storage, dual bilge pumps, bilge alarms, stainless steel diesel and water tanks, hand-crafted solid wood interior, etc.

However, this one really has every additional option you could want for comfortable long-distance passage making, and living on the hook. These items include 120V 6kVA diesel generator, 30 gallon/hour watermaker, 3-unit air-conditioning/heating, 730Watts of solar panels on beautiful stainless steel stern arch, Watt & Sea 300Watt water generator, Victron 3600Watt 240V to 120V transformer (for shore power outside USA), Hydrovane wind self-steering system (and emergency rudder), HAM/SSB radio with Pactor modem, Iridium Go satellite uplink, genuine cutter rig with genoa and staysail on fixed furlers, full-batten mainsail on Schaefer Gamma boom furler with all reefing from the cockpit (not in-mast furling), orange storm trysail with separate mast track, four (4) electric dual-speed winches, and spare parts galore. Includes an almost new Highfield inflatable RIB with 9.9HP Yamaha and spare 3HP Yamaha outboard.

Hull Speed
9.6 kn
Classic: 8.42 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

9.55 knots
Classic formula: 8.42 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
200-275: moderate

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
