Extremely rare to the market, especially so in Europe, AZORES HIGH is a fantastic two-owner example of this cult Sparkman & Stephens blue water centre cockpit cruising yacht. Delivered new to the UK through Hylas Yachts UK and highly specified for effortless blue water cruising adventures, AZORES HIGH benefits from such desirable cruising features as:-


  • Electric in-mast furling
  • Electric genoa furling
  • Staysail furling
  • Channon Sails vertically-battened sails
  • Extended electric winch package
  • Larger 100hp engine with 3-bladed Max-prop
  • Bowthruster
  • Generator
  • Upgraded battery capacity and charging systems
  • 12v Watermaker
  • Reverse-cycle air-conditioning
  • Electric davits


Bought specifically with a view to extended cruising, unfortunately business has very much got in the way and as such AZORES HIGH has only seen two weeks of use a year, never leaving Scottish and Irish waters before heading down to the S.Coast UK during summer 2017. During her time in Scotland, she was always been maintained by professional skipper.


AZORES HIGH represents a unique opportunity to acquire a fully CE-complaint and barely-used blue water cruising yacht of the very highest build quality, in ‘ready-to-go’ order.



Her sweet sheer and elongated more traditional lines are the unmistakable hallmark of legendary yacht designers, Sparkman and Stephens. Known for her crisp performance and elegant hand-finished teak interior, she is an absolute joy to handle, even with small crew.


The integrity assured by her solid laminate hull further speak to her mission as a reliable offshore performer or elegant coastal cruiser.


A feature-filled interior incorporates three double cabins, extraordinary in a 49-footer. The fully -equipped galley spans one of the two passageways to the aft stateroom.


On deck, her deep and secure centre cockpit provides perfect visibility from the helm and seats long enough to accommodate a relaxing nap. The reverse transom with wide steps and an integrated boarding ladder make getting aboard or off a breeze, whether from the water or from your dinghy.


But the best part of her may be the delightfully positive helm that transmits her smooth energy to your fingertips... a spirited thoroughbred responding to your every command as the sea turns to diamonds, carrying you safely to your far destination.




Sailing Magazine review of Hylas 49 delivery from Florida to Annapolis


"Luckily we avoided the worst of the weather until we rounded Diamond Head .... interestingly tropical storm Daniel sprang to life 50 miles south of Hatteras and collided with a cold front coming from the north. Suddenly we had 40 plus knots on the nose .... we slapped two reefs in the main and reduced the genoa to 100% .... the boat had no tendency to pound… Frequent checks proved she was tracking true.... we were cold and wet sailors by the time we pulled into our slip north of Annapolis but we were all very impressed by the design, sailing characteristics and overall construction of the Hylas 49… The Hylas' interior arrangements are well suited for blue water sailing, we particularly like the easy access to the engine…


The Hylas 49 is an excellent choice for anyone considering a serious performance cruising boat with comfort to spare… The Hylas 49 is poised to become a leader in the 50 foot market…”
