The Hylas 44 was designed by German Frers and built by Queen Long Marine in Taiwan from 1984 to 1992. This is a center cockpit offshore cruiser was built with the charter trade in mind as a comfortable ocean going cruiser that was easily sailed by a couple. They became very popular as a commodious two stateroom vessel with a beautiful center cockpit and scooped transom for enjoying the Islands. The Hylas 44 was indeed the predecessor of the 46 and 54 with the beam carried aft to provide a beautiful aft stateroomThe interior is one of the lovely features of the Hylas 44 because it was really designed as a perfect charter boat for two couples or a family. They have an offset double berth forward that has a small settee and a private head and shower. The main saloon has a lovely rounded dinette arrangement to port with a classic straight settee to starboard. The master stateroom aft has its own ensuite head and shower. The dual walkthroughs proved to be a popular feature so one can access the aft stateroom without disturbing the galley slave. The galley is laid out on the starboard side with the master head and shower on the port side. The aft stateroom has a centerline queen berth.

Accommodation and Layout
The Hylas 44 has two stateroom layout  with a lovely saloon and walk through galley. Up forward, there is an offset berth and settee as well as a hanging locker, four overhead lockers, and three large drawers for more stowage. This guest cabin is a real stateroom with a private head and shower. The main saloon includes a dinette arrangement to port and a starboard settee. The
beautiful sought after aft queen berth stateroom is accessed either through the galley or the owners aft head. The dual walk-throughs were a tremendously popular feature and still are. In the aft stateroom there is a fabulous centerline queen berth. The owner's stateroom has plenty of stowage in two hanging lockers, many wall lockers and also
under berth drawers. The owner's aft stateroom has it's own ensuite head and stall shower. The galley is a safe and secure galley at anchor or in a seaway. The main saloon is lovely with a dinette arrangement to port and a straight settee to starboard that also makes a
good sea berth. The dining table is a traditional drop leaf table that extends port and starboard to seat six easily, perhaps more. There is lovely cabinetry outboard including a nice liquor cabinet and shelves. The headroom is huge and it is a big plus for tall sailors. 
The interior cabinetry is teak with a beautiful teak and holly cabin sole. The Ultrasuade upholstery is teal and looks great with the teak. The lighting is nice with a combination of LED, halogen and fluorescent (some dimmable). 
The walkthrough galley is on starboard just aft of the salon. It is a complete galley to please any chef.
