Yet another new Oyster is under way, and as usual the design emphasis is a balanced combination of performance, comfort, and solid construction.
Designer Rob Humphreys has given the new yacht a larger cockpit than other designs in the size range. And like all Oysters, it is ergonomically designed for comfort.
Belowdeck accommodations include a spacious saloon, three guest cabins, and an owners stateroom that would do justice to a much larger yacht. The yacht, which will be built in E-glass, Kevlar, and carbon fiber, has a generous beam and a modern, distortion-free underbody shape. A super-shoal twin-rudder-and-centerboard version will also be available.
