THE GLASS SLIPPER | Hylas 56 | 56ft


Annapolis, MD, US


The Hylas 56 was designed by German Frers and built by the world’s foremost yacht builders, Queen Long Marine, the exclusive builder of Hylas Yachts. First launched in 2010, the 56 is a mid-sized luxury bluewater cruiser that has earned acclaim throughout the world of sailing as one of the most popular models developed by Hylas. THE GLASS SLIPPER is Hull 21 of 27 built.

THE GLASS SLIPPER is a one-owner Hylas 56 launched in July 2016. Her attentive owners have spent the Summer seasons cruising Maine and New England while wintering in Florida with the occasional cruise to the Bahamas. Always professionally maintained, the yacht is in exceptional condition and has benefited from numerous recent improvements, such as new sails, a new lithium house battery system, and new hull paint. She is also one of the most highly optioned Hylas 56 ever built and incorporates unique design elements that set her apart from her sisterships. Standout features include her performance carbon fiber tall rig, Park Avenue boom, Navtec solid rod rigging, custom bow sprit, Victron lithium house battery system, two cabin maple interior, Anderson electric winches, shoal draft keel, and more.

Many small details have been incorporated into the yacht to preserve the sleek, modern appearance and natural elegance of her Frers design. For example, on the exterior, extra hull windows were added at the bow and custom-designed to be flush-fit with a frameless appearance. An additional deck hatch was added forward, and the hatches are all flush-mounted, eliminating the bulky steel frames. On the interior, many electrical switches, charging ports, and other necessary systems are cleverly concealed yet wholly accessible. And the astoundingly abundant cabinetry has been smartly configured to preserve the sense of openness and natural lighting throughout the yacht. Stepping aboard THE GLASS SLIPPER, it is readily apparent that the owners obsessed over every detail and design decision, both large and small.
