Oyster 46 Yacht

Rate this item
(3 votes)

The Oyster 46 is a very powerful yacht, almost certainly best in class for righting movement and form stability, with a hull and deck that are lighter, stronger and stiffer than her predecessors. Add to this more beam, a much longer waterline and significantly more sail area and the whole equation adds up to a significant improvement in performance.

Her large cockpit benefits from the extra beam and lessons learnt from professional ergonomic studies and years of sailing experience. The 46 offers good headroom throughout with a three-cabin accommodation layout, allowing six to sleep in comfort, without using the saloon. The owner enjoys en-suite facilities, whilst the forward two cabins share a comfortable heads and shower.

The Oyster 46 really is more revolution than evolution, so if you are looking for a new benchmark in this size range take a closer look and stand by to be impressed.
