VOO DOO is a fine example of the Frers-designed Hylas 70, current flagship of the popular and highly respected Hylas Yacht Series, built on a semi-custom basis to the highest standards. Fully automated push-button sail handling systems allow for easy shorthanded sailing, and her long list of additional options includes air, generator, bow thruster, water maker and an extensive package of navigation and entertainment electronics. Since her launch in 2012, VOO DOO has proven to be a fast, safe and extremely comfortable world cruiser with an excellent four-cabin layout, ideal for both private use (as done with current owner) or charter. Inspections are highly recommended.

Since her launch in 2012, VOO DOO has proven to be a fast, safe and extremely comfortable world cruiser with an excellent four-cabin layout, ideal for both private use (as done with current owner) or charter. Inspections are highly recommended.


VOO DOO features the standard four-cabin layout with three ensuite owner/guest cabins, plus an additional ensuite crew/guest cabin.

Finely crafted solid teak joinerwork is finished to a high level throughout the interior, including solid teak raised-panel cabin doors, fully louvered or latticed cabinet doors, double grooved fiddles and burled table tops. Cabin soles are satin finished teak with custom locking mechanisms and fitted carpets. Head and shower areas are all painted white Awlgrip and feature Corian vanity tops, solid Corian sinks and molded floors. Hanging lockers are lined with cedar and feature automatic lights. White fabric headliner with Oceanair hatch screens/blinds throughout. Upholstery is custom leather, with tasteful bedding, towels and other décor throughout.


Beginning forward is a private VIP stateroom with a king-sized berth, settee and significant storage space, including a large hanging locker, drawers and several cabinets. There are two hull windows and a large deck hatch. An ensuite head is forward, along with a shower stall shared with the port guest cabin.


Forward of the main salon and to port is the second guest cabin, featuring a generous double berth, hanging locker and multiple drawers and lockers. There are three opening portholes and a large deck hatch. A head and shower stall is across the passageway.


VOO DOO's main salon is quite spacious for a vessel of this size, due in part to her generous 18' beam. A large L-settee is to port, with a beautiful burled table that expands as needed to accommodate six comfortably, and can be raised or lowered by a manual lift. Two custom seats are inboard with anchors for tie-down while underway. To starboard is a full-length settee with burled table, an Avanti built-in wine cooler and an up/down flat screen TV hidden from view behind. The entire space feels light and open due to (2) large deck hatches, teak-trimmed and custom tinted deck house windows and two hull windows.


Aft and to starboard is an L-shaped navigation station with easy access to the cockpit. There is a comfortable pedestal chair along with built-in backlit switch panels, navigation instruments and remote control panels for the water maker and tank monitors. The workspace also includes a chart table with custom storage for computer and (in adjacent cabin) a printer.

There are (2) large hanging lockers, (10) drawers and numerous cabinets. Extended beam is carried well aft to create a spacious, open cabin accentuated by twin hull port lights, a deck hatch and (6) opening portholes.
