Oyster 54

The Oyster 54 is a worthy successor to the popular Oyster 53, with even better performance and modern styling. Compared to her predecessor, the 54 carries more sail on a longer waterline and is somewhat lighter thanks to the use of a cored hull above the waterline and advanced composite engineering.
Oyster 54Her clean hull lines, powerful rig and a low centre of gravity bulb keel have created a fast, stiff, comfortable passage maker. While good performance is important, other significant improvements include a cockpit that is around 25% longer and substantially wider than that of the Oyster 53.

Cabin onboard the Oyster 54The Oyster 54ís three-cabin cabin layout, combined with a long waterline length, generous beam and headroom create a spacious, light and airy living area.

The hull meets the deck via a modern superyacht styled rollover bulwark, which gives a clean contemporary look to the yacht and a sleek curved deck saloon style gives the yacht a stunning outboard profile from any angle.
