Oyster has launched its first new model since the company was relaunched last year
Oyster has launched its first new model since the company was bought out of administration in 2018.
It has been designed for friends and family to sail with no need for a professional crew.
“She is a truly spectacular sailing yacht and – though at the smaller end of the Oyster fleet – does not compromise on comfort or performance,” said naval architect Rod Humphreys. “This year’s order book is already almost full and that is – of course – a huge source of pride for us and for the whole team at Oyster. This is just the beginning…”
Several new models are due to follow on from the 565 added Oyster CEO and owner Richard Hadida, who explained that the company has an almost full order book.
“Words cannot describe the excitement I feel to see Oyster enter such an exhilarating phase in its evolution,” he said.
“The 565, fondly known as our ‘pocket superyacht’, is everything an adventurous couple or young family could want. A reflection of this is our ever-expanding order book. This is an important moment in Oyster’s history and I look forward to many, many more.”
Yacht features include twin-rudders and a hull form that allows for different layout and keel options.
