2006 Hylas 54 - Located in Newport, Sydney.

Amara has earned the honour of being the most beautiful yacht in the bay, not only by her position in Newport, but also in anchorages across the Pacific. She is a picture of strength, and grace.

Amara is ready to depart cruising the world or adventuring up the coast to the Whitsundays, all destinations done in safe and comfortable style.

Her layout is a perfect example of her designer's reputation and is the size of an apartment with a sunny raised deck saloon giving brilliant views forward and side. The aft private king size stateroom, as well as similar sized forward guest stateroom, makes her a comfortable entertaining voyage maker.

Hylas yachts are built to an owner's specification and her previous owner adjusted the third cabin to be adjustable to even have a private office, comfortable 3rd sleeping cabin when needed.

Throughout she has that light airy feel with lots of opening hatches and vents. The wood working is simply stunning with several doors adorned with hand laid marquetry of old fashioned compasses. This work is an example of how this yacht was constructed.

The Hylas 54 design is renowned for her graceful lines which give her effortless performance and comfort. Amara is set up for easy shorthanded passage making and she can achieve 200 plus NM days, when the breeze allows.

All of the other details you would expect in a world cruising yacht are included. Electronics, communications, 2000+ litres of fuel capacity, up to date safety equipment and more have been incorporated in this sensational vessel. The sails: Doyle! Nothing more needs to be added.

Her presentation is exquisite and maintenance completed to the highest level.

There has been no compromise in her extensive inventory -
