St Georges, Grenada
PAPA GOOSE is a highly customized, exceptionally well equipped, 2009 Hylas 54 Raised Salon, and the newest Hylas 54 on the market.. She's an excellent example of what a quality contemporary performance blue water cruising sailing yacht should be, offering comfort, safety, speed and exceptional strength and finish. She was designed by German Frers for world cruising and built by Queen Long, one of the world's premier quality semi-custom builders. The hull is classic Flag Blue.
PAPA GOOSE's owner, a highly regarded architect, was intimately involved with the builder in pre production build specifications that included many custom design improvements, additional equipment and systems upgrades. Examples are a custom wheel pedestal console, custom headliners, a second guest head forward and raised panel woodwork with ebony inlays throughout including all entry and cabinet doors.
