Oyster 118

The largest Oyster-Humphreys Yacht Design collaboration

"The Oyster 118 was an opportunity," says David Tydeman, CEO of Oyster Yachts. "We'd been talking to the client for about three years. A 100-footer (30m) is quite difficult because to be LY3 compliant you need five or six crew. You therefore need 110 feet to get the required accommodation in. Our discussions led to her being stretched to 115 feet and then, with an extra three feet just on the transom, the 118 was born."

The result is a 35 metre yacht that marks the largest yet drawn by Oyster in collaboration with Humphreys Yacht Design, and she features several distinct elements. There's an enclosable sedan hardtop over the cockpit, while her low-profile styling and signature teardrop deckhouse windows are complemented by three sets of three vertical hull ports aft - great for flooding the voluminous interior with light.

The first model will carry a five-cabin, four-head aft accommodation arrangement, with a closable crew area forward. The tooling for the first hull is almost complete and she is expected to launch early in 2018.
