The spacious and open interior, with contemporary styling, features a modern deck salon with sizeable panoramic front and side windows delivering warm, natural light and spectacular views from the comfort of the main salon.
The fiddled countertops are finished with Sahara-colored Corian in the galley and Platinum-colored Corian in the heads. Throughout the yacht, off-white textured headliners and tastefully selected Ultra Suede fabrics to complement the undertones of the beautiful, bamboo sole.

Alternatively, the three-zone climate control delivers welcome relief when desired.

A full-beam v-berth forward with ensuite access to the day head, a guest cabin forward to port with a single that pulls out to a double, and a roomy master stateroom with a queen centerline berth and a private head with a separate stall shower and a second passageway leading to the main salon. All staterooms feature cedar-lined hanging lockers and finely finished cabinetry. Passageway galley with over 7 feet of useable Corian countertop complete with an island-style surface under the companionway offers more than ample space for the cuisine-loving crew and generous amounts of storage.

Interior Styling & Additional Features:
Bright and full of natural light, the spacious main salon is accentuated by the beautiful bamboo and teak inlay cabin sole, large panoramic fixed side, and forward windows, and exquisitely finished joinery.
To starboard is a full-length settee that slides out an additional 9 inches to expand to a comfortable sea berth complete with lee cloth. To port is a custom folding dinette table with an adjustable stainless-steel pedestal; in its most compact configuration, it makes the perfect cocktail table for entertaining. Expand the leaves, and you have a comfortable dining table with seating for six around a large settee and pull-out double bench seat.
Outboard cabinetry and shelving, and lockers behind the settees offer an incredible amount of storage space. The headroom is a generous 6' 7". Natural ventilation through two large opening teak trimmed deck hatches, and Manship stainless steel opening portlights are welcomed on those warm tropical evenings. Still, when needed, reverse cycle climate control is a desirable feature.

Storage is bountiful. To port, there are large hanging lockers with removable shelving. To starboard, a tall hanging locker, and additional cabinets outboard of the settee.

The ensuite aft head is beautifully finished and includes a Platinum Corian vanity, molded white sink, and high-gloss Formica laminate wall surfaces. A full-length dressing mirror is located on the doorway, and storage is bountiful with a cabinet below the sink and a sizeable linen closet outboard. The separate stall shower has excellent headroom and a second passageway to the main salon.
This wonderfully inviting cabin with ensuite access to the forward head has a full-beam custom v-berth mattress which is 6' 9" in length. Teak cabinetry with removable shelving and hanging lockers lined with cedar were customized for added depth and improved volume. A large overhead hatch with teak trim and forward dorades provides excellent ventilation. Zoned climate control with independent digital control is shared with the port guest cabin.
Aft and to starboard of the guest stateroom is the forward head which opens to both the guest stateroom and the passageway forward. Ideal for exclusive access for guests or use as a day head.

EXODUS features a galley that is smartly laid out and functional with over 7 feet of Corian countertop surface and an inboard island-style countertop aft of the companionway. The galley is designed for practicality at sea, making it functional underway on either tack. The top and front-loading refrigerator and freezer included dual seals and heavy insulation and were designed with a flush surface to ensure easy clean-up and seamless aesthetics. The Frigoboat system operates off 12VDC and incorporates efficient keel coolers. The three-burner LPG Force 10 stove with oven has a Corian insert for added prep surface when in place or converts to a stainless-steel backsplash when stowed. Ample cabinets, storage lockers, and drawers are located outboard and below the countertop.
Aft and to the port of the main salon is the L-Shaped navigation station with a custom bi-fold hinged desktop and swing-out seat with Ultra Suede upholstery. The instrument and electrical panels, with lighted displays, have fast-pin hinges, which allow for easy access to the exceptionally well-organized and carefully labeled wiring. All devices and wiring are labeled inside and out and traced numerically at each end. For storage, there is two drawers aft, as well as chart storage inboard.
The Hylas 49 is a well-proven and competent bluewater cruiser. EXODUS is fast, sea-kind, and strong. Constructed with hand laid up fiberglass laminates set with vinyl ester resins and isophthalic gelcoat for superior protection from osmosis and blistering. Eight longitudinal stringers are tied to each frame and bulkhead. The result is a stiff and seamless monolithic structure above ABS standards. The encapsulated lead keel and low ballast provide a low center of gravity for high stability and are fastened with solid 35mm stainless steel keel bolts with transverse-mounted 8mm backing plates.
The forward hull section is well shaped for rough seas and well-reviewed for its excellent abilities in heavy weather without pounding. The distance between the rudder and keel is measured by design to provide superior directional stability and balance. The rudder post has full structural support running through-hull to the deck. For added safety and protection from hard grounding, the rudder skeg is 2 inches higher than the low point of the keel.
Characterized by expansive side decks, high stanchions and equipped with the desirable option to bring the pushpit stainless steel rail the full length to the mid-ship gates, EXODUS is a boat aboard which the crew will feel safe and secure. The deck is laid up with a sandwich core construction with an end-grain balsa core. Solid laminate is utilized in all areas of the deck for fittings and the high-stress regions. Chemically and mechanically fastened with 5200 epoxies and through-bolted every 5 inches with backing plates, the Hylas 49 is known for its superior strength and reliable construction. Teak decks with teak coach roof.
The center cockpit design of the Hylas 49 is safe, secure, and bone dry in rough seas. Seating eight comfortably, the teak-planked seats coordinating cockpit cushions and seatbacks offer a perfectly balanced cockpit sizeable enough for entertaining yet well suited for offshore sailing. The high gloss varnished cockpit table provides the perfect setting for outdoor dining and enjoyment.
ENGINE AND MECHANICAL
Engine and mechanical access on the Hylas 49 are fantastic! Gone are the days of contorting and twisting to perform essential maintenance. Large panels along the inboard side of the galley and navigation station, hinged access at the companionway stairs, and a door on the forward bulkhead of the master cabin make servicing the engine and generator an effortless endeavor.
EXODUS with just 3303 hours on the engine and 435 hours on the generator. And has been well maintained by her knowledgeable and experienced owner. As expected, the bilges are spotless and show prideful ownership and careful attention to detail. This is as close to a new yacht as you will find.
