    Wings, a 2003 Hylas 54 Raised Saloon, designed by German Frers and constructed at Queen Long, is a proven passage maker. . “Wings” is a special yacht and has been lucky to be part of one family since launching. She has enjoyed the benefits of their knowledgeable ownership and their passion for sailing combined with their capability and willingness to properly keep a yacht of this stature. Her long list of creature comforts will keep you in the lap of luxury in the cold Northern or Southern latitudes or in the tropics where the days are long and hot. Her elegant lines and generous modern underbody make for quick passages and easy cruising to those secluded "locals only" places.

    The cabin is flooded with light through large ports, including two to port and starboard and three facing forward. The headroom is more than 7 feet, creating a sense of spaciousness, although it also makes overhead handrails inaccessible to short sailors.
    Queen Long's teak joiner work is superb and nicely balanced with the use of practical white laminated headliners, which can be removed without major surgery. Teak veneered bulkheads and solid trim pieces and doors are well crafted and beautifully varnished.
    The cabin sole shimmers (which means it will be slippery when wet) and all pieces can be secured keeping them in place in the unlikely event of knockdown. Most owners put down carpet runners when under way. All cabinets and lockers are finished on the inside and have secure latches. Numerous stainless steel rimmed Mainship deck hatches and opening portlights combine to create excellent ventilation throughout the interior.

    Excellent insulation that dampens the outside noise making for a comfortable getaway form the outside (ocean, sometimes loud) world.

    Large forward stateroom with walk around double berth. Two drawers beneath the bed. Upper storage area and two cedar lined closet.

    Forward Head with separate shower stall.

    Additional stateroom aft of forward stateroom. Double berth with overhead cabinets and six drawers beneath the bed and a hanging closet.

    Dinette in Saloon converts into a double berth. In addition, the saloon has fittings for starboard bunk bed (port tack for high seas).

    Master Stateroom with a queen sized berth (handcrafted deluxe mattress with fitted sheets and lee-cloth). A large cedar lined hanging closet with multiple storage areas and in-suite head with separate shower stall.

    The cabin temperature is well regulated with a three zone reverse cycle air conditioning system. Three zones mean three units all rated at 16,000 BTU with touch screen thermostats, operating on 50 or 60 Hz cycles (good for European and US electrical power) at 230V. An industrial grade sea water pump and manifold shutoff system for each unit.

    The galley is to starboard and consumes the outboard section of the walkthrough to the aft cabin. This arrangement works well at sea as the cook can find a secure position on either tack. More than 7 feet long, the galley has more counter space than most home kitchens, and the Wahlee Stone counter tops are very attractive. Two double stainless sinks are located to port beneath the cockpit well on the centerline for good drainage on either tack. Top-and-side loading 12-volt Grunert refrigerator and freezer are standard, as is a Force 10 stove and oven. There is a slide-out trash compactor, dedicated microwave locker and saltwater and freshwater foot pumps, just in case the pressure water system fails.

    Hull and Deck
    The Hylas 54 is built by Queen Long, a 25-year-old Taiwan boatbuilding company and one of the island nation's best-run yards. Queen
    Long was the original builder of the Peterson 44 and has turned out the Hylas 44 and 47 among others.
    The 54's hull is built with Twaron, a carbon aramid fiber incorporated into the solid fiberglass hull. According to Jachney, the hull is
    literally bulletproof and is in some ways nearly as strong as a metal hull. Vinylester resin is used throughout the molding process.
    Isophthalic gelcoat and two epoxy barrier coats provide even more protection against osmosis.
    The deck is cored except in high-load areas, where it is solid fiberglass. A step-down sail locker is part of a watertight collision
    forward bulkhead. The hull and deck are joined on a wide flange, bonded with 3M 5200 and through-bolted on 4-inch centers. Interior
    bulkheads are tabbed on all sides. Massive floors create a rigid hull with plenty of athwartship support. The fin keel is solid lead and
    bolted to the hull with 35mm stainless steel bolts, which in turn are supported by an 8mm stainless steel backing plate.

    Sails and Rigging
    Standard winches include Lewmar 66 CST primaries, CST 54 secondaries and CST 48s for the mainsheet and halyard winches. Many
    owners, including Regan, opt for electric winches and the Seldon electric in-mast furling mainsail system. A boat of this size and
    weight generates huge loads and powered-up winches make shorthanded sailing a reality, especially for a couple on the other side of
    middle aged. Like furling systems and GPS, electric winches have become common, especially on boats longer than 40 feet, and why
    not, as long they have manual overrides? The standard spars are by Seldon and the discontinuous stainless steel standing rigging is
    Hasselford. Furlex System 400 is the standard roller furling headsail system. A quick-release inner forestay, a staysail and running gear
    are also popular options and provide an excellent alternative to the roller-furling headsail in heavy weather.

    Equipment Included:

    • In mast furling (electric) main (2014 UK Sails)
    • Genoa (2014 UK Sails) on Furlex 400S

    • Mainsheet Winch - Lewmar 48 - electric
    • Cabin Top Winch - manual
    • Mast Halyard Winches - manual

    Wing's mast is equipped with fold away mast steps.

    The shipboard systems on the Hylas 54 are well engineered, redundant where necessary and contribute to the user-friendly nature of the boat. Tankage, which is located beneath the saloon sole, can be any combination of fuel and water up to 550 gallons. The manifold systems for both fuel and water are excellent.

    Equipment included:

    • 12V DC Ship's System

    The nav station is tucked away to port, the large L-shaped desk has an adjustable swivel chair. There is a dedicated computer desk with a slide-out shelf and plenty of room for electronics and instrument repeaters.
