BACK ON THE MARKET AFTER SUMMER CRUISING - NOW PRICE REDUCED.
Oyster 575 Chione has arrived back in Palma after spending the summer cruising the western Mediterranean. Launched in 2014, she is a superb opportunity for any buyer wanting a second generation Oyster 575 with the vertical ’Seascape’ windows, that is ready to sail away today.
Hull number 25 of the hugely successful range, Chione is a fine example of the latest Oyster 575 styling above and below decks. Her modern interior feels light and spacious with American light oak joinery contrasted with walnut plank-effect flooring. Chione’s well thought out interior layout boasts eight berths in four ample cabins, a good-sized galley leading aft from the saloon and two large heads – for comfortable, easy cruising with family and friends.
Cutter-rigged with push button hydraulic furling to her mainsail, yankee and staysail make Chione simple to handle for a couple and she is an obvious choice for those seeking the ultimate shorthanded blue-water cruiser under 60 feet.
Berthed at Oyster Palma for winter 2016/17, Chione is available for viewing at your convenience.
