COOKIELICIOUS is hull 6 of the phenomenally successful Oyster 72 class. Well known, and very well specified, she offers comfortable cruising as well as excellent sailing performance. Her 3 double cabin plus 4th bunk bed cabin layout makes her especially attractive. She is maintained to the highest standards, and is just used privately by her current owners. Since 2012 she has been used in the Caribbean in the winters, and predominantly the Med in the summer, and has been shipped by Sevenstar yacht transport, in both directions, rather than sailed across.
Oyster Marine say of the Oyster 72 – “The Oyster 72 was conceived from the outset to blend the live-aboard and seamanlike qualities of a typical Oyster within a design where high performance was of equal or greater priority. Modern composite engineering has produced a hull and deck that are both light and stiff, without compromising the strength, durability and ease of handling for which Oysters are well known.
The Oyster 72 has one of our sleekest deck and cockpit designs ever, with her rolled edge side decks, transom stairwell and a host of ‘superyacht’ style features.”
