Title: Aft hatch Hylas 44 or 45.5
Post by: Beth W on May 13, 2022, 07:32:02 PM
I have a new-to-me Hylas 1994 45.5 and may need to replace the aft hatch over the master cabin. From previous posts it seems that the original hatches are Atkins Hoyle. Does anyone know the exact measurement of the hatch (I'm unable to measure the hatch eight now) and/or have suggestions on an alternative manufacturer? Thank you!

Is it the frame or just the glass?  You can have the glass replaced.  I had it done on my 46 a couple of years ago by Hatchmasters.com.    Great work. I also had them replace it with the higher UV rating, a little darker but cooler.  My cost was $650 but I delivered it and picked it up.  They do ship worldwide.

Thanks Ken. It is the frame and also the edge of the glass. I'll check out Hatchmasters.com!

They are XR300.  A Lewmar 60 Ocean is close, but not an exact replacement

May also want to look into Man Ship If they do not have the size exact they can manufacture it.   http://www.manshipmarine.com/deck-hatch.html (http://www.manshipmarine.com/deck-hatch.html)
