Exceptionally well sorted member of the Oyster sisterhood which enjoyed a total nautical makeover in 2016 - including paint, decks, interior, electronics, rig, AV and so much more. However, the nub of this Oyster 72 is that she is quite simply ferociously quick, of carbon with a carbon rig and super light yet very strong fit out for express mile munching and would be great for some regattas along the way. She is so much more than simply an Oyster.
