Oyster sailing superyacht Twilight sold
by Malcolm MacLean
Twilight was designed by Dubois Naval Architects and Oyster Marine, working together to produce this Oyster 125 flybridge model launched in 2013 at RMK Marine in Turkey. The design brief was for a concept that could carry superyacht luxury and style but be capable of being built as a production yacht, with power, efficiency and speed.
The 125 flybridge is a composite performance cruising yacht with a stunning open plan split-level living area. The upper saloon offers a panoramic view, and accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, two doubles and a twin cabin. The contemporary, stylish interior by Rhoades Young is in teak and light oak and all cabins have entertainment centres, large screen television sets and full en suite bathroom facilities.
The upper saloon offers comfortable seating, a bar and an entertainment centre featuring a large 3D television screen with a theatre surround sound system and iPod dock, while the lower saloon has a large screen television set with an iPod dock.
Up on the flybridge is the ideal spot for al fresco cocktails and dining, with seating and a table for 10 guests plus a fridge. Under power, a 600hp Caterpillar diesel engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots.
Composite construction removes the need for a painted finish, significantly reducing maintenance costs and does not need the framework required in an aluminium-hulled yacht, thus optimising accommodation volume. Additionally, Twilight was built to Lloyds class and is MCA compliant.
Lying in Palma de Mallorca, Twilight was asking £7,450,000.
