Second Oyster 118 sailing yacht sold

The second hull in the Oyster 118 series of 37.45 metre sailing yachts has been sold by the yard in a direct deal.

Oyster Yachts CEO David Tydeman personally closed the deal for this single-masted Rob Humphreys-designed cruiser, which is due to be delivered in Spring 2020.

Accommodation is for eight guests and five crewmembers, with the layout including a full-beam owner’s cabin aft with an adjoining lounge. The three further double guest cabins also feature full en-suite facilities.

Entertaining options on board are plentiful, with formal dining for eight in the saloon as well as an al fresco dinette. Meanwhile on the main deck, guests can relax in the sheltered cockpit, which will be fitted a C-shaped wrap of built-in seating.

Comprised of a GRP hull and superstructure, the Oyster 118 features a beam of 8.35 metres and a maximum draught of four metres.

As with the first hull in the Oyster 118 series, auxiliary power will come from a single 500hp diesel engine. The second hull will be also be laid up at HMS Daedalus in a female mould before being shipped to the yard’s Southampton facility for outfitting next year.

Oyster Yachts adds that it is planning to expand its Saxon Wharf yard to allow the third and fourth hulls in the series to be built partly in parallel, with 2020 and 2021 delivery dates possible.

The Oyster 118 is the largest series of sailing yachts that the yard has built in the UK to date. Other projects under development at the British yard include the Oyster 825 series; with the sixth model Enso currently sailing to Antigua on her delivery voyage.
