Hylas – 56

Maryland, United States




[Professional Photos & Video Tour Coming Soon]


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.

The hull of THE GLASS SLIPPER features solid hand-laid Twaron carbon aramid fiber reinforced GRP constructed with Vinylester resins and isophthalic gelcoat. A two-layer epoxy barrier coat and tie coat are used to adhere the bottom paint to the hull better as well as to prevent and protect against osmosis. The hull structure includes two watertight bulkheads: a collision bulkhead forward at the bow and a watertight stern section across the aft lazarettes.

In April 2023, the yacht was repainted with Black Awlgrip, a white cove stripe, and white boot stripes at the waterline. At the same time, the bottom was redone with fresh black bottom paint. The new paint job looks fantastic!

  • 2 Epoxy barrier coats below the waterline with fresh bottom paint in April 2023.
  • Teak rub rail with stainless steel capping below the sheerline.
  • Solid hand-laid Twaron carbon aramid fiber reinforced GRP hull with vinyl ester resins and isophthalic gelcoat for superb strength and stiffness and a hull well protected against osmosis and blistering.

  • Partially skegged rudder for optimal strength and protection - The bottom of the rudder plane is above the keel for grounding safety.
  • Solid lead shoal draft keel with 316L stainless steel 35 mm keel bolts and transverse-mounted 8 mm backing plates
  • Two, one inch copper bonding strips integrated into the hull, running the length of each side of the yacht. 
  • Six, flush mounted hull windows custom designed to retain the flush appearance of the hull. Two located in the master stateroom, two in the main salon, and two in the forward VIP cabin.



The deck of THE GLASS SLIPPER is constructed of hand-laid laminates with a 3/4-inch end-grain balsa core. The deck is solid fiberglass in high-stress areas, such as where deck fittings are taking compressive or tensile loads. The hull-to-deck joint is chemically bonded with 3M 5200 and mechanically fastened with stainless steel through bolts. The bow is well protected with a sturdy 316 stainless steel stem fitting with a striker plate and double bow roller, a signature feature of every Hylas Yacht. 

The deck is finished with a Crème colored molded non-skid deck which looks fantastic and contrasts nicely with the white gelcoat and black hull. In addition, the deck is purposely bare of varnished teak. The handholds and stern seats are all stainless steel, while the teak cap rail and rub rail have been kept natural.

  • Creme colored molded non-skid deck - Gentle on the feet yet excellent grip when wet.

    • All deck compartments and lazarettes have integral gutters with direct overboard drains and can be sealed watertight with dual Baily latches.
  • Hatches & Portholes
    • Six low-profile Lewmar deck hatches with smoked acrylic lenses. The deck hatches on THE GLASS SLIPPER are unique in that they were specifically selected by the owner to preserve the flush lines and uncluttered appearance of the yacht. This is a more modern styling than found on other Hylas 56.
    • Fourteen Manship stainless steel opening portlights.
    • Modern deck salon design with six wrap-around windows, including a pair port and starboard and two forward - delivers an incredible amount of natural light and beautiful views from the main salon.



The cockpit of the Hylas 56 is a tremendous improvement from the model's predecessor, the Hylas 54. The benches are long enough to enable someone over 6' tall to lounge out and cat nap while not impeding upon the helmsman. Sitting eight adults around the cockpit is entirely comfortable and still has room to maneuver under sail. This is especially true with THE GLASS SLIPPER, where her cockpit table was designed to fold up and out of the way while not in use. In addition, the yacht has a more modern sole design featuring teak planking and outboard water catchments with large scuppers for drainage.

Visibility from behind the helm is superb, and the mainsheet, primary and secondary winches are within close reach of the helmsman. Each with pushbutton controls for effortless maneuvers. Careful attention has been paid to the ergonomic design and functionality of the cockpit.

  • Stainless steel Lewmar wheel (40" diameter) with leather wrap.
  • Custom pedestal with flush-mounted chartplotter and autopilot. Designed to maintain a low-profile in keeping with the aesthetics of the overall yacht.

  • Cockpit cubbies integrated into the coaming with fiberglass doors.

While unmistakably gorgeous and designed to be a luxury yacht, THE GLASS SLIPPER is also a serious sailor's dream. Many desirable design choices were made to enhance the yacht's performance, versatility, and ease of handling.

The carbon fiber 7/8 fractional keel stepped performance mast, custom developed by Selden, is eight feet taller than the standard Hylas 56 rig and is paired with a carbon fiber Park Avenue pocket boom. This enables the yacht to carry much more sail area, greatly enhancing the yacht's performance. Another desirable upgrade is the NavTec solid rod rigging, which is substantially stronger than traditional 1x19 strand wire rigging. Other performance upgrades include a GMT Carbon fiber whisker pole, a custom stainless steel bow sprit, NavTec hydraulic controls, and cylinders for the vang and backstay.

  • SELDEN CARBON FIBER PERFORMANCE MAST - Triple spreader, 7/8 fractional keel-stepped design.
  • SELDEN CARBON FIBER PARK AVENUE BOOM -A preferred choice for the more performance-oriented sailor who still desires simplicity and ease of use for cruising.
  • SOLID NAVTEC ROD RIGGING - A superior option over standard wire rigging
  • Harken 3E electric genoa furler with pushbutton cockpit controls
  • Facnor FX 4500+ Top Down staysail continuous line furler.

These are in addition to the Doyle staysail and A2 asymmetrical spinnaker with a dosing sock system. The new North Sails and the original Doyle sails were developed in consultation with Peter Grimm, Jr., the longtime sailmaker for Hylas Yachts.

The winches were upgraded to high-quality Anderson winches, including all electric winches in the cockpit. The primaries are even two-speed! The winch controls have also been upgraded to more robust and weather-resistant pushbuttons with stainless steel covers. Most of the running rigging has recently been replaced, and all is in good serviceable condition.
