hylas 42

I am looking at a Hylas 42. Currently I sail on the great lakes but would like to do some off shore sailing. Any feedback from the group if this would be suitable? I have looked at the ylas users group site but found nothing on the 42.

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.

Absolutely. A fine boat, built to high standards and excellent performance under sail. Just get a good survey and engine diagnosis as many Hylas' were in charter and may have concealed damage or repairs and high engine hours.
Good luck!
