Designed to replace the Oyster 825 and 885 – 17 of which have been sold, the new Oyster 835 and 895 include features from the development of both the larger Oyster 118 (2 sold) and the smaller models – the Oyster 565, 595, 675, and 745 – 16 of which have been sold.
Starting with the design of the Oyster 745 in late 2014, Oyster has been quietly refining its entire range. More sophisticated design and technology has been used to incorporate infused internal structures and carbon-fibre in key areas of framing and bulkheads; across the range the composite hulls and decks now have a more selective distribution of weight and strength.
This higher level of engineering for the Oyster 745 was then continued in turn with the structure of the Oyster 118, the 675, the 565 & 595 and now the new Oyster 835 and 895. Designed using Det Norske Veritas/GL rules, Oyster has also been working with Lloyds Register of Shipping to both gather their technical input and to help them develop more appropriate classification standards for this type of composite yacht.
The design signature of the Oyster 835 and 895 includes the deck, transom rake and window lines to match both the smaller and larger yachts. These two new yachts include upgraded systems developed for the flagship Oyster 118. For example, the standard specification now includes a captive reel mainsheet system and an anchor-rocker system on the bow prodder for easier handling of large anchors. Other anchor options include a stylish below deck storage system with an ‘anchor thrower arm’.
Carbon masts are standard, as are North Sails and a high basic specification ensures that these two new models provide the Superyacht experience comfortably below the MCA 24 metre Large Yacht Code – thus are designed for the owner who also wishes to consider chartering his/her yacht to efficiently offset running costs.
For both the Oyster 835 and 895 there is a Raised Deck (RD) option, increasing the superstructure height by 300mm and providing options for a high-level saloon seating and dining area.
These two new Oyster yachts are built for comfortable world cruising with interior layout options for three or four owner and guest cabins sleeping up to 8 on-boardsupported by ‘Silver Service’ facilities for two, three or four crew.
Priced at £5.25m and £6.1m respectively, (ex VAT) with flexibility to develop custom interiors and specifications, the Oyster 835 and 895 confirm Oyster’s position as the ‘go-to’ builder for the best series-built Superyachts for ocean cruising.
