Hylas Yachts has been building award-winning luxury cruising yachts since 1985. And in a unique new partnership, North Sails will now be the exclusive sail supplier for the innovative company.

From today, all new Hylas yachts will be marketed with state-of-the-art North sails as part of their base pricing, giving owners the chance to experience best-in-market products for their cruising needs. The world's leading sailmaker has long been associated with the best builders, regattas and yachts in the world, and after more than 60 years of pushing boundaries, the company has refined the art of producing market-leading cruising sails.

The Hylas 57 and Hylas 60 will be launched in December 2019 and will offer North Sails product line, NPL TOUR as standard. NPL TOUR is an easy-to-handle radial cruising sail, delivering low stretch and a smooth, long-lasting shape that has set the standard as the premium paneled sail for performance-minded coastal & bluewater cruisers. And any client may also choose the option of an additional performance upgrade to a 3Di product.

The family-owned company Hylas Yachts prides itself on ensuring reliable equipment and expert engineering, blended with comfort and style to suit every type of cruising. In a natural step, the partnership with North Sails will help Hylas enhance their customer experience, as no other sailmaker can offer the same range and quality of sail, combined with an unparalleled loft network around the world.

Andy Huang, C.E.O. of Hylas Yachts said: "As our clients have become increasingly knowledgeable and sophisticated we try to align Hylas with those vendors that are best able to meet our demanding business needs as well as the very personal needs of our yacht owners. North Sails have won our trust based on values we hold dear - extraordinary quality, innovation, design and a global reach. What has impressed us most is that North is probably the world's largest, and arguably best, sail manufacturer yet their dedication to the personalized service our clients receive truly enhances the Hylas ownership experience. We are looking forward to partnering with North Sails as we launch the new Hylas H57 and H60 yachts in 2020."

Peter Grimm, North Sails Hylas Project Manager, commented: "I have worked with Hylas Yachts for 20 years, and formalizing this partnership with North Sails makes perfect sense. With our familiarity with the Hylas Yachts and owners, expert team of designers and material engineers, combined with our technology and production capabilities, I am confident that North Sails offer the best possible products for every type of cruising needs."

"The North Sails attention to detail, from design through finishing, gives us the confidence to say our product cannot be matched. And because of the way our sails constructed, each sail we build is meticulous, allowing us to offer ongoing product development over time, as well as make repairs in a way no other sailmaker can. And you don't have to go back home to do it - any one of our team throughout the North Sails worldwide loft network can make any repairs needed due to the breadth and depth of our global understanding of sails."
