nice boat except for the cockpit arrangement
We looked at a Hylas 42 and was very impressed with the boat. The only problem we saw for offshore use was the odd double cockpit arrangement. Could not imagine a reasonable dodger arrangement. It is the not the only boat with some variation of this theme (many Swans, a friend's Jeanneau 44 for example) and seems to be the compromise needed to get a good aft cabin.
