Broker's Comments

The Oyster 625 is a superb and proven blue water cruising yacht with fleet lines from Rob Humphreys giving her fast and rewarding sailing performance. She is large enough to operate with crew, yet compact enough for family sailing and with modest crew sizes. GREAT BEAR V is an exceptional example of her class.  Commissioned for an experienced yachtsman with the idea in mind of a family world cruise, she has been thoughtfully specified to deliver on this goal, and she is fully of good ideas and her walnut and maple interior adds the requisite glamour. She is now for sale because of a change of plans and if offered in totally turnkey shape and is ready to cross oceans immediately.

Owner's Comments

Since taking delivery, we and GREAT BEAR V have sailed around 12,500 nautical miles, during which time we have enjoyed 3 glorious summer seasons in the Mediterranean. During this time GREAT BEAR V has always exceeded our expectations. She has been maintained to the highest standards regardless of cost and with excellent support from Oyster Palma and Vortec Marine. She has never been chartered and cruising has been undertaken with the family and friends, with the occasional use of professional crew. Because GREAT BEAR V is a much loved member of the family, when in cruising mode we have always protected all vulnerable surfaces including high traffic soleboards; ensuring all wood surfaces have remained as new.


GREAT BEAR V is now sadly for sale as our plans have changed, and she deserves to sail oceans rather than to undertake local cruising. I have found her easy to maintain and have hugely enjoyed every aspect of the creation and ownership of this special yacht. I know that her new owner will enjoy the outstanding build quality, blue water specification, good sailing and comfort as much as we have.  


RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean”


Hull Construction:

·         Composite construction, moulded from female tools

·         The hull is moulded using a combination of vinylester and polyester resin with the outer topside finish in a white special NPG gelcoat.

·         The laminate material comprises a combination of E Glass, Kevlar and Carbon Fibre specially designed for the yacht by the Oyster Design Team’s own structural engineers.

·         This ‘custom’ laminate offers significant weight savings, strength and stiffness advantages over a normal GRP construction, carbon for weight and stiffness, Kevlar for impact resistance.

·         The topside laminate incorporates a high-tech, foam-cored, E-glass/Carbon sandwich above the waterline, for additional strength, stiffness and insulation. This ‘core’ is applied using a vacuum bagging technique.

·         Beneath the waterline there is a monolithic (single-skin) composite laminate, with an Aramid / Kevlar layer, reinforced with a matrix of stringers and floors.

·         There are BS1088 standard marine-ply structural bulkheads.

·         Additional reinforcements are included in the way of the keel recess, the keel longitudinals, mast bulkhead, P-bracket, forestay and hull stringers.

·         Limber holes and/or tubes are installed at appropriate points.

·         Stringers, bulkhead landings and floors are formed over a non-structural, inert, polyurethane foam.

·         Air Draft: 89’2” / 27.20m

·         Hull boot lines and rig trim are executed in RAL 7015 Grey.


Deck Structure:

·         Moulded in GRP with a balsa core for strength and insulation. In load bearing areas the core is replaced with plywood for additional strength, and all load-bearing fittings have backing plates or large washers. Within the foredeck is a recessed locker for anchor chain stowage, which is fitted with hinged lids and a stainless steel, clamp-type locking device.

·         Within the aft deck there is a large locker to port, which will allow the stowage of two 13kg propane type or other bottled gas cylinders. This locker drains/vents overboard at both high and low levels and has a flush, hinged lid. A central, Solimar flush hatch with hinged lid and drain channels, rubber seal and positive closing, gives access to a full width, large lazarette locker. A pair of stainless steel gas struts are fitted to the lid.

·         Within the lazarette is a folding step and a hanging bar for rope stowage.

·         The aft deck incorporates - two flush Solimar hatches, one of which gives access to the aft cabin.

·         On the foredeck there is a teak laid flush hatch that gives access to the forward sail locker. There is a dedicated ladder on the bulkhead plus a warp stowage rail.


Hull and Deck Connection:

·         The hull to deck connection is achieved by bonding the deck onto the return flange of the hull.

·         The deck edge incorporates a bulwark. The top of this bulwark has a clean GRP finish.

·          Stanchions and cleats are mounted on the bulwark.

·         6 x 38mm (1.5") internal scupper drains are installed along the deck edge.


Deck Finishes:

·         Sidedecks, forward coachroof, winch coamings, cockpit seats, cockpit sole, helmsman's seats and areas either side of the main companionway are trimmed with laid teak. The teak decking is laid in approximately 48mm wide teak planking, using quarter-sawn planks and no visible fastenings, laid on epoxy glue. Planking is nibbed into the king plank and the decking is installed with margin boards around hatches, dorade vents, cabin sides and major deck fittings.

·         All locker hinges, catches and fillers are recessed into teak planking, where appropriate.


Bathing Platform:

·         The stern design incorporates a recessed platform, trimmed with laid teak. There a fold-down stainless steel bathing/boarding ladder with oval treads. The ladder is fitted with a lanyard and retaining pin for retrieval/stowage. The platform is accessed via an integral stairway from the aft deck.

·         An Aqua Signal 41 stern navigation light is mounted on the transom.

·         There is a hot and cold freshwater deck shower (along with additional deck wash outlet) located in its own locker within the transom.


Eyebrow Detail:

·         The vessel is fitted with an eyebrow detail on the main saloon deckhouse, which combined with recessed windows lowers the apparent height of the main saloon. A pair of stainless steel grabrails are also fitted. The roof of the main saloon is fitted with recessed laid teak decking aft of the sprayhood rail. Forward of the sprayhood rail, the area has a non-slip finish.


Keel & Rudder:

·         The keel is a long, shallow profile, GRP moulded stub, with lead ballast bolted to it.

·         The ballast keel is a lead casting, with approximately 3% antimonial hardening, bolted to the GRP keel stub with Nickel Aluminium Bronze (NAB) bolts. Ballast weight is approximately 10,000kg. The GRP keel stub incorporates a wide footprint area to facilitate secure attachment of the ballast keel and create a bilge sump with suitable limber holes to allow easy evacuation of bilge water.

·         The rudder has a GRP blade, foam-filled, bonded to a stainless steel rudder stock. This is fitted to a protective skeg, which includes internal reinforcement. The bottom pintle is attached by way of a through-bolted bronze heel casting. The rudder tube incorporates top and bottom roller bearings. The top of the rudder stock terminates at deck level and is covered by a screw-in stainless steel deck plate, for the use of the emergency tiller if need, from a usable position on deck. Stowage for the emergency tiller is provided within the lazarette locker.

·         Lewmar torque rod steering is installed with a pair of pedestals each incorporating a 1.06m (42”) diameter Mini-Maxi type Carbon fibre, friction brake, and three bearing pedestal steering unit. The steering tiller arm is protected within the lazarette locker with an easily removable access panel to facilitate routine maintenance.


Engine & Gearboxes:

·         A single Volvo D4-180, 4-cylinder, turbo-charged diesel engine, of maximum potential power of 132kW (180HP) at 2,800RPM is fitted. The gearbox is a ZF63A gearbox, which gives a reduction of 2.52:1.

·         The standard engine instruments include alarms for low oil pressure and high water temperature, plus a rev. counter, oil pressure and water temperature gauges.

·         A Halyard Marine GRP exhaust water separator and GRP water lock.

·         Aquadrive couplings are installed at the inboard end of the shaft and this coupling also incorporates a thrust bearing to absorb shaft thrust and increase gearbox life.

·         The engine is mounted on flexible mountings. The combination of this and the thrust bearing considerably helps to reduce noise and vibration whilst lessening fatigue in engine parts.
