The Oyster 55 is an Oyster classic and one of our bestselling models. Designed by Holman and Pye and introduced in 1986, the first sixteen hulls were launched at 53 feet and featured a counter stern. The addition of a sugar scoop with bathing platform stretched the design to 55 feet and around half of the 53s were later extended to match the newer models. Her traditional moderate freeboard, attractive shear and generous overhangs give the 55 a timeless elegance, whilst her balanced hull form and robust construction make her a surefooted sea boat in any conditions, especially upwind in a gale.

We launched 48 examples between 1986 and 1998 when she was replaced in our range by the Oyster 56. In that time there were a number of variations, most were cutter rigged with in-mast furling, but three were launched at ketches. The standard 55 has an encapsulated keel, but a handful were launched with shoal draft, and we launched one with a pilothouse. The interiors usually have either four cabins or three plus a workshop, and most are finished in teak, although there are some in cherry or light oak. The 55 is a proven world cruiser, and consummate ocean going liveaboard.

Scirocco is the penultimate 55 launched, hull number 47, delivered in 1998 and is in her original ownership. Her owners cruised the Mediterranean and Black Seas. In 2012 she sailed west to the Caribbean where she has remained. Rigged as an in-mast cutter she is simple to handle, with electric furling to her mainsail and genoa. Down below she sleeps six in three cabins with an additional workshop, her teak joinery gives her a strong and traditional feel. Maintained by caring owners she is now ready for a circumnavigation.
