Another deep discount, super well equipped
Owner wants an offer
China Doll IV is the highly popular Hylas 54 raised salon featuring large salon windows for outstanding views. She is extremely light and airy, has a huge galley with excellent counter space, and is fully equipped for long distance cruising. Her electric winches and furling Genoa and staysail make her extremely easy to sail by one or two people.
China Doll IV, recently refit, features a new 160hp Yanmar engine and many other upgrades; see the list below for details. Due to the raised salon (RS) design, the primary tankage is all under the main cabin sole which creates a more comfortable seagoing motion and provides enormous, easily accessible storage areas, far more than would be found in a conventional center cockpit design.
If you are seeking a fast, able and very well made yacht with an impeccable pedigree China Doll IV may be your vessel.
Recent updates to this popular German Frers design include:
Draft: 7' 2"
As with most Hylas 54’s, China Doll IV has a three stateroom, two head layout.
The two forward staterooms share the guest head, which is to starboard in the passageway that leads to the VIP stateroom. The owner's stateroom is aft and is accessed by walking through the long passageway galley on starboard.
The main salon is amidship with a C-shaped dinette on starboard and a settee on port. Aft of the salon settee and to port is the outboard facing navigation station. Across to starboard is the galley which is located in the walkthrough to the aft cabin.
The forward stateroom features a large centerline berth. There is ample storage including upper cabinets and bookcases lining both sides of the stateroom. On the port side is a dressing table. Both sides have very large hanging lockers which can also be shelved. Currently one is shelved and one is hanging. There is storage on both sides of the berth and large drawers at the foot of the berth. There is a lot of storage under the sole and under the berth as well. Overhead is a large hatch for ventilation. On the starboard side there is a private entrance to the forward head. This spacious head has a separate shower stall, large linen closet, mirrored cabinets above the sink and an electric head.
Opposite the forward head to port is a second guest stateroom. Features include a double berth with cabinet storage above the berth to outboard and a hanging locker in the cabin forward and three banks of drawers.
The main salon is a light and airy raised salon designed for great visibility. The curved settee to starboard has storage beneath and behind the cushions and storage cabinets above which house a liquor locker. The curved port settee surrounds a custom teak table which converts into a cocktail table or a double berth. Again there is a lot of storage space beneath the settee and behind and above. The fully equipped wrap around navigation station is to port aft of the main salon. It has an upholstered captain style chair and two separate work areas. Larger (chart table) facing outboard and a separate computer table/desk facing aft.
The galley runs along the starboard side of the interior aft of the main salon. There is more than adequate work area, twin stainless steel sinks, stove, built in garbage lockers, fresh and seawater pumps, huge refrigerator/freezer and more. There is ample storage space in the galley with cupboards both below and above the countertops.
The owners stateroom is aft with a centerline queen size berth. Along the starboard side is a hanging/shelves locker, storage cabinets, dressing table and under the floor storage. Along the port side of the stateroom is a drawer unit, dressing table and cabinets. At the head of the bed is a bookcase and port lights. At the foot of the bed are four drawers. There is another enormous storage area beneath the berth. The ensuite head is port forward of the stateroom. Features include three cabinets with mirrored doors and a sink with storage beneath. There is a separate shower stall with teak floor and a very large storage cabinet. This cabinet could be plumbed and wired for a washer/dryer combo unit.
