Oyster Yachts Added Extra Destinations to Unveil the new Oyster 495

Due to popular demand to see the new Oyster 495 on its World Premiere Tour, Oyster Yachts has added extra destinations to meet customer demand. 

Oyster Yachts will be exhibiting the Oyster 495 at Genoa International Boat Show, from 22-27 September.  

The World Premier Tour started at St Katherine Docks, London in April, where the 495 departed on her maiden voyage to Oslo.  From there, the tour heads to Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Southampton and then to the Mediterranean, visiting Barcelona, Cannes Boat Show (6-11 September) Genoa, Palma, before heading to Miami and then onto Sydney in 2023.  

The Private View concept has been very successful for us, especially over the past couple of years. The World Premiere further develops this concept and, importantly, takes us directly to our clients. Each stopover event will be managed by our Sales Team and guests will be able to explore this ground-breaking boat in safety and in their own time,” comments Stephen Parkinson, Oyster Sales Director, Rest of World.

The 495 is a collaboration between Humphreys Yacht Design and Oyster’s own in-house design studio, overseen by Oyster’s CEO & owner Richard Hadida and Oyster’s founder Richard Matthews. 

This experienced team has produced their best work to date, creating this new Oyster. The powerful G6 twin rudder hull form delivers true performance cruising and clean lines. The beam is set well aft, contributing form, stability, and sailing performance, making the Oyster 495 a true liveaboard, go-anywhere bluewater yacht, designed to be sailed shorthanded. 

Hand-built with Oyster’s bluewater DNA running through her from bow to stern, the Oyster 495 offers many of the features found on the luxury boat builder’s larger yachts, making her unique amongst her peers. Easily handled by a couple or family, she is equally at home on coastal cruising trips, crossing an ocean or even circumnavigating the globe.
