Plan Sea

  • 16.43 m
  • 2008
  • Oyster Yachts
  • United Kingdom
  • £540,000



Plan Sea is an immaculately maintained and superbly equipped yacht.  She has benefitted from an owner, who has lavished care and attention and many upgrades to this yacht, including a vast majority of upgrades carried out at Oyster’s own factory in Southampton.  She has recently had a full winter service and is in complete “Turn key” and ready to go condition.  
Plan Sea is only for sale due to a change in the owners work commitments and unfortunately less time to go sailing.  
The interior of Plan Sea has to be seen to be fully appreciated, the owner has upgraded the lighting and entertainment systems, and the yacht is presented in fabulous condition.  The American light oak joinery is beautiful and oozes quality and craftsmanship.  
On deck, there are covers for everything and the rig is ideally set up for short handed sailing, complete with a new set of sails too.  She provides an exciting and rewarding sailing experience for the true sailor.  
The yacht is located on the South Coast, but is due to come to Fox's Marina in Ipswich to be sold.  Please contact the broker for further details.  
Plan Sea is a beautiful yacht and now ready for her next adventures.  Viewing is highly recommended.
