Although not exhibited at Southampton, the eagerly awaited Oyster 885 will be seen sailing past the show during the first few days.
Both yachts completed fit out at the Oyster Yachts’ build facility in Southampton and have been rigged and fully commissioned. Following its presence at the PSP Southampton Boat Show, the 725-01 will be handed over to her new owner.
Both boats are equipped with full Lewmar packages including winches, hardware, thrusters, windlasses, hydraulic power-packs and mechanical steering systems, along with Navtec rigging and hydraulic vangs and cylinders.
At 27m, the 885 is the largest Oyster built in the UK to date and incorporates superyacht technology, such as a Lewmar CW3500 captive reel winch for the mainsheet. On 725-01, the sail control hydraulics is powered via the main power-pack, a feature normally found only on larger vessels. This enables stress-free and simple adjustment of the Navtec sail control functions.
