The Oyster 575 is an extraordinary bluewater cruising yacht that is compact for shorthanded sailing yet which has great accommodation for guests. This yacht was built for her current very experienced owners - having owned an Oyster before they were very clear about what works. She has a Formula cutter rigged spar that is push button, a stunning oak interior, that is full of lovely custom touches, and an epic spec for bluewater. She has taken them to New Zealand, and is now ready for her next adventure. She has been much updated through life.
