'Adina' was built at the end of 2008 as a 2009 model, fitted out for long distance blue water cruising. Based in the Solent, she was lightly used by her first owners before their circumstances changed. We took ownership in June 2012 and continued to keep her in the Solent. In March 2013 we left our home port with the aim to sail Adina around the world. Having initially sailed to the Caribbean, we returned there in March 2017 crossing our track, and completing our trip. We shipped 'Adina' back to the UK and she is now based in the Hamble River on the south coast of England.

'Adina' is an extraordinary vessel who has always performed and kept us safe in true comfort. We lived by the rule that if we looked after her she would look after us. We are proud of the way we have maintained her and many have commented favorably on the excellent condition she is in. Adina is in top order and ready to set sail again with new owners. We would dearly love for her to have caring owners.

Yachting Monthly (Chris Beeson, October 2017):

“ADINA is the first Hylas I’ve tested and the workmanship and attention to detail are as good as anything I’ve ever seen… The numbers showed that Frers has given her a hull that is as slippy as it is good-looking… The stemhead fitting is a stainless steel work of industrial art. Headroom is 6ft 5in and the teak joinery and walnut-topped fixed table is lit beautifully by two large windows either side, two forward, two opening hatches in the deckhead, two hull ports and a small opening port to starboard… She’s a tried and tested, turnkey solution for comfortable ocean cruising.” “Build quality throughout is exceptional and she’s been well maintained.”

“‘A round-the-world trip has its own rule of thirds,’ says Tom, ‘sailing, sightseeing and maintenance.’ Fortunately Adina is designed with this in mind. Everything is labelled, from seacocks to wiring, and everything has excellent access: engine, generator, PSS seal, fuel and water manifolds. All the stainless steel tanks are fitted with inspection hatches. Her designer appreciates the importance of maintenance.”

“As blue water cruisers go, she’s really quite rewarding to helm… You’ll be happy sailing alone. With electric winches, furling and bow thruster, she’s easily managed and confidence will come from that. When you want to invite guests, the appointments in their ensuite cabin will keep them very comfortable, the galley is kitted out with everything you need to entertain and the saloon is highly convivial. Just make sure your guests have booked a return flight or they’ll never leave.”

Cruising World:

“The Hylas 46 comes with extensive standard equipment and an abundance of top quality name brand gear. I deem her a ‘must see’ for any serious cruiser.” “Certainly worth noting, the Hylas 46 gets “electrical panel award of the year” both for access to wiring and superb quality of its installation.” “The Hylas 46 is also notable for an interior comfortable enough to border on plush and systems hard to beat for their meticulous installations.” “There is excellent (engine) access at the front with further access through panels on three sides… the plumbing and thru hulls are meticulously labelled and easy to reach” “This is classic German Frers…”
