Re: Hylas vs Oyster

The wheel setup on Special Delivery is called a Whitlock (now owned by Lewmar) Reflex Pedestal, a $2000 upgrade. The advantage is that the instruments on the pedestal are all reachable without sticking your hands through the spokes of the wheel and having your arm broken by the autopilot. I have a chartplotter display, an autopilot control head, a Vetus thruster controller and a remote VHF mike all mounted on the pedestal. The boat new cost $1.5m all up. A new Hylas 56 is about $1.1m +. My boat will sail circles around a 54 and an Oyster 53. This boat has never not placed in the 7 Carib 1500's and Atlantic Cups and has had first overall finishes and multiple first place finishes in both. I beat a bigger Oyster once by 48 hours on corrected time. I reduced the price 100k recently as I am anxious to sell the boat as we don't use it any more as I have had to move back ashore for health reasons. Since the Annapolis show it was shown at Strickly sail in Miami. In preparation for that show, exterior and interior teak have been redone and the entire boat was professionally detailed. I am looking for any reasonable offer.

Re: Hylas vs Oyster

The price for a new 56 can be more than 1.1, it depends what you put on it!
It is true, we sail circles also around most other boats this class ...also because we have all carbon rigs and sails!
Good luck you will sell it ! is a magnificent boat! what are you asking for yours?

Re: Hylas vs Oyster

Hylas sells a boat like car dealers sell a new car. Thoses add-ons can really add up. Mine (2002/2003 Taswell 58 AS) is currently listed by David Walters at 695K.

Re: Hylas vs Oyster

I just reserved my Summer dockage in Annapolis and will be moving my 58 Taswell North in late June. It will be in the Newport broker's show and the Annapolis broker's show if I still havn't sold it. I'd rather sell it in Fort lauderdale.
