HULL NUMBER Oyster 56/73 HULL CONSTRUCTION Hull is molded in GRP from female moulds built by Oyster in their own facility under the designer's supervision, ensuring a smooth accurate finish. The hull and deck structure are molded to the designer's specification under controlled conditions and all laminating is carried out by hand to high standard. Hull and deck moldings are produced using a Lloyd's approved gelcoat and laminating resin. On the hull the gelcoat is a special isophthalic resin and the outer laminates incorporate a vinylester resin and powder-bound mats. This combination provides exceptional UV, weathering and water resistance properties.
HULL FINISH White hull with cove line and double boot top lines in standard Oyster blue
DECK CONSTRUCTION Moulded in GRP with balsa core for strength and insulation
DECK FINISH Teak laid decks, with teak bulwark capping rail.
KEEL High performance bulb (HPB)
