Oyster 575 Yacht

Oyster 575 Yacht 

The all-new Oyster 575 is about evolution and experience.

Evolution in design terms means an exceptionally sleek deck saloon with a spacious cockpit with twin wheels. It also means that every inch of space below deck has been optimised to provide comfortable, practical accommodation.
Like the Dubarry Yacht Deck Shoe

Experience means talking to our owners and benefiting from their experience as well as our own. With over 50 Oyster 55s and over 70 Oyster 56s in commission, our experience of quality blue water cruising yachts in this size range is probably unsurpassed.

 

 

 

oyster_575

Pure hull lines from Rob Humphreys will ensure this yacht is a fast passage maker resulting in effortless blue water cruising and exhilarating performance, while the four cabin layout and spacious saloon and dining areas will appeal to families and those wishing to sail with crew.

We are confident that the new Oyster 575, with her twin-wheel configuration, will soon set the standard by which cruising yachts in this size range are judged.

Oyster 575 Review Yachting World

Yachting World's Toby Hodge recently joined the Oyster 575 On Liberty for a 220nm passage from Palma, Mallorca to Cartagena, Spain. Richard Langdon of Ocean Images was on board to capture the trip. 

Oyster 575 review in Asia Pacific Boating

The definitive crossover size boat, the new 575 from Oyster is large enough to justify a paid crew and be chartered, yet is still manageable by a couple, says Yachting World's Toby Hodges – and her sea manners are as smooth as her looks.

Oyster 56 Yacht

Oyster 56 Yacht 

The Oyster 56 is one of the most successful yachts in Oyster's history with over 70 built to date. A world-class cruising yacht, the 56 was the first yacht with an ergonomically designed cockpit, the result of working with Loughborough University's Ergonomics department, making relaxing and entertaining a true pleasure, while maintaining all the essential qualities you expect of a serious seagoing yacht.

Performance under power and sail is first class, demonstrated by the 56 easily winning her class in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers

and also winning Cruising Class 1 at Antigua Sailing Week, beating a number of more serious racing competitors.
Oyster_56

The standard layout offers a choice of an en-suite owner’s stateroom aft with three guest cabins, or two guest cabins and a walk-in machinery room alongside the engine.

Well proven over tens of thousands of ocean miles, many live aboard owners have confirmed, the Oyster 56 is easily handled with just two on board, while the yacht is spacious enough for six or even eight people to cruise in comfort.

The Oyster 56 is the first yacht, thanks to our project work with Loughborough University, offering a cockpit that has been the focus of genuine ergonomic design. Many boast that the attributes of ‘ergonomics’ are present in their own designs, but few can support those claims with true scientific research. Oyster can Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45DS .

It is precisely such detailed research and planning that has resulted in unprecedented levels of comfort that make relaxing and entertaining on board the Oyster 56 a true pleasure. Comforting too, that this luxury comes without compromising any of the essential qualities you demand of a serious seagoing yacht. And in particular, an Oyster.

You’ll buy this yacht if you’re an adventurer – or simply a lover of cruising the oceans. If you and a partner sail off to exotic places with just the two of you on board, she’s a dream to handle despite her size and powerful performance. Yet if you feel like taking a whole crew of friends and family along for the trip, she’ll equally easily sleep eight in the luxury of her spacious four-cabin layout. This unmatched flexibility and all-round capability is almost certainly the most persuasive part of her personality – the single element that has endeared her to so many owners around the world. Of course there is a lot more to the Oyster 56 than a cunningly configured cockpit and some luxurious design. Technically speaking, she enjoys the very best of our years of experience of building boats we sail ourselves and for which we draw on the wisdom of our generous owners. After all, they love talking about their Oysters and we learn a great deal from them.

CAD-optimised hull lines have produced a yacht that is well balanced and very fast. The G5 deck upgrade delivers a stylish, well-balanced, outboard profile, whilst the generous sail plan makes best use of the stability derived from the low CG bulb keel and the high form stability of her hull lines. Her class-leading performance under power and sail is demonstrated by the ease with which she won her class in the ARC and more significantly perhaps, her Cruising Class 1 win at Antigua Sailing Week, where she beat a number of more ‘serious’ racing competitors.

Oyster 54 Yacht

Oyster 54 Yacht

The Oyster 54 is a worthy successor to the popular Oyster 53, with even better performance and modern styling. Compared to her predecessor, the 54 carries more sail on a longer waterline and is somewhat lighter thanks to the use of a cored hull above the waterline and advanced composite engineering.

Her clean hull lines, powerful rig and a low centre of gravity bulb keel have created a fast, stiff, comfortable passage maker. While good performance is important, other significant improvements include a cockpit that is around 25% longer and substantially wider than that of the Oyster 53.

The Oyster 54’s three-cabin cabin layout, combined with a long waterline length, generous beam and headroom create a spacious, light and airy living area.
oyster_54

The hull meets the deck via a modern superyacht styled rollover bulwark, which gives a clean contemporary look to the yacht and a sleek curved deck saloon style gives the yacht a stunning outboard profile from any angle.

The 54 carries more sail on a longer waterline and is somewhat lighter, thanks to the use of a cored hull above the waterline and the use of the latest technologies in composite engineering and materials; carbon fibre and Kevlar for example. What is more, her clean hull lines, powerful rig and low CG bulb keel make her a fast, comfortable and well-balanced passage maker. In fact, her admirers say she behaves like a very much larger yacht in open sea conditions.

The hull meets the deck via a rollover bulwark styled in the manner of a superyacht, to give the same clean and contemporary look. The bulwark is elegantly recessed at the mooring cleat positions and the sleek, curved deck saloon styling gives this eye-catching Oyster 54 a stunning elegance from any angle.

While sparkling, exhilarating performance is vital, the social side is important too. Our designers have acknowledged this by giving her a significantly longer and substantially wider cockpit, where up to six adults can sit and relax in real comfort. At the heart of this spacious area is a fixed cockpit table, which boasts fine varnished woodwork, fold-down leaves and an ingenious central cool box with convenient top access.

Among her many other attractions is the clever way her below decks and saloon layouts offer such a wealth of space and convenience. For example, she is perfect for two couples to go cruising in company because the three-cabin configuration really makes the most of the available space. This is apparent not only in the magnificent owner’s stateroom, but in the supremely comfortable double guest cabin forward – where the centreline double berth has proved to be a very popular feature with guests – in addition to the spacious twin cabin to starboard.

In summary then, the Oyster 54 is a significant yacht in our range and built with the future very much in mind. Her tempting combination of long waterline length, wide beam, three-cabin layout and unusually generous headroom give this new design a light and airy living area with a feeling of spaciousness you would normally associate with a much larger yacht.

The Oyster 54 also happens to be a great looking yacht with a stunning outboard profile, all presented in a total package designed to bring you that elusive combination of brilliant performance, comfort and luxury – both above deck and below.

Oyster 46 Yacht

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.

HULL
The hull is monolithic GRP construction. Reinforced points (keel, rudder , chain plates, hull deck joint) help to strengthen the structure. A structural monolithic inner moulding is bonded and laminated to the hull. Its structural role isimportant as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (shrouds, chain plate tie rods, keel, rudder etc) and spreads any loads guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull. The surface material of the inner moulding makes cleaning easier and provides a better finish. The standard hull colour is white with silver livery. Steel Blue is available as an option.

DECK
The deck is sandwich construction (glass fibre and balsa) for an optimal strength/weight ratio and excellent thermal and sound insulation. A 'diamond point' non-slip surface is applied to all areas of work and movement on deck.

HULL DECK JOINT
The hull/deck joint is screwed and bonded and surrounded by a teak bulwark screwed in position. This mechanical joint ensures a watertight assembly and improves safety when moving around on deck.
