The re-built 25.15 metre Oyster sailing yacht Champagne Hippy has been sold in a deal handled by James Barke of Boats.co.uk who also acted on behalf of the seller. Thomas Benson of Seymour Yachts introduced the buyer.
Originally named Polina Star III, the yacht was delivered in 2014 by British yard Oyster Yachts with naval architecture by Humphreys Yacht Design. After a hull delamination caused her to sink in 2015, she was rebuilt by Boats.co.uk and relaunched in 2019.
The sailing yacht accommodates eight guests in four staterooms, maintaining the classic layout of the popular Oyster 82 series. The cabins comprise one master stateroom aft with a free-standing bed, office area and ensuite, one twin room, one bunk room and a double cabin located in the bow.
Inside, Champagne Hippy’s main saloon hosts a dining area via in-built seating alongside a fully-equipped, open style galley. Throughout her airy interiors, plentiful natural light is provided via ample large windows.
Moving on deck, an al fresco dining table for up to eight guests provides panoramic views and is located aft within the cockpit. Elsewhere, the bow offers freestanding deck furniture.
When under power, a single Scania engine provides a top speed of 12 knots and a cruising speed of nine knots.
Champagne Hippy’s asking price was withheld.
