Voted European Yacht of the Year 2012 and Best Production Sailing Yacht (15m-30m) at the Asia Boating Awards 2012, the Oyster 625 has attracted praise from the moment she was launched. Designed by Rob Humphreys to be handled by a couple, whilst providing enough space for bluewater cruising with family and friends, the 625 is an excellent compromise.
This stunning 625 has a dark blue hull and is rigged for enhanced sailing performance with carbon mast and Park Avenue boom and fully battened mainsail. She has electric furling to her genoa and staysail.
Below decks, beautiful teak joinery and cabin soles give a luxurious and contemporary feel, and she sleeps eight in four cabins.
Only for sale as her owner is building a larger Oyster, this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a superb nearly new 625 without waiting for delivery of a new yacht. Twice winner of her class at the Oyster Mediterranean Regatta Palma 2012 & 2013. An early viewing is highly recommended.
