No problem if you barbeque on deck like CD!! (g)
Actually...I like u-shaped galleys myself but ya can't have everything. Ventilation is actually quite good as there opening ports both on the cabin side (2) and on the cockpit side providing good ventilation.

Bad omen...

Y'all know who Hylas was, right? The mythical boy-lover of Hercules who was kidnapped by water nymphs and whisked away UNDER WATER, never to be seen again.... IMHO, not a very auspicious brand-name for those who intend to stay atop the waves.

And no, I'm not making this up: google it yourself, you'll see.

As the myth goes, however, the reason the nymphs captured him was because they couldn't resist his amazing looks, and took him underwater to ravage him over and over again. If I were to disappear underwater forever, I would hope that some beautiful water nymphs would have there way with me for all of eternity! Still, I do think it is a weird name for a boat.

In all seriousness, Hylas is the reason I became obsessed with sailing. I had always been a die hard power boater (I know) until I accidentily stumbled onto a 54' Hylas at the Ft Lauderdale boat show back around 2002. WOW! Now that is a boat... and the rest is history.
