Oyster 82

Oyster 82From any angle, the Oyster 82 looks refined and stylish, even more so with the new styling to her deck saloon lines introduced this year and available now from hull 15 onwards.

An exceptional sailing yacht, that will do 240-mile days on passage, the Oyster 82 is beautifully balanced and light on the helm with equally impressive light airs performance and is a fine example of what can be achieved by combining the naval architect’s art and the builder’s experience, a yacht that really does compare favourably with many larger vessels.

The 82’s split cockpit really does have a big yacht feel with twin wheels and a spacious, protected guest cockpit with large fitted tables for some serious ‘al fresco’ dining.
The upper saloon offers a direct line of sight outboard, providing a panoramic vista and direct access to the cockpit. The lower saloon typically incorporates seating and a movie system.

Oyster 82The Oyster 82 offers full standing headroom under the cockpit floor, with a centreline passageway leading aft to the owner’s stateroom and two guest cabins. This give owners and their guests privacy from the galley and ensuite crew accommodation which are forward of the saloon.

The Oyster 82 offers a combination of comfort and performance, with an abundance of practical sea-going features that are the hallmark of the entire Oyster range and is now available in a Supershoal centreboard variant with a board up draft of just 2.14m (
