Oyster 56 For Sale. Offers invited.
Recent survey available.
Oyster Blew has successfully completed an Oyster World Rally and is UK VAT paid.
She now requires some general re-fitting and upgrading to be ready to go again, but she benefits from being re-engined circa 2008 and in 2020 she had a brand new composite deck fitted. A recent survey is available on request for serious enquiries.
The Oyster 56 is one of Oyster's most successful models. Designed by Rob Humphreys, she is a supremely comfortable bluewater cruiser, capable of taking oceans in her stride and accommodating her crew with plenty of room to spare, yet she can also be handled by just two.
Not only is the 56 stylish and comfortable, but the 56 has class wins in the ARC and has also won Cruising Class One at Antigua Sailing Week.
Oyster Blew is a four-cabin version with Reckmann Hydraulic Furling.
Her current owner commented on her 2017-2019 Rally performance:
"She performed fantastically well and is the perfect boat for bluewater cruising. We passage planned for 170 mile days and on occasion achieved 200. In all weather conditions, we had complete confidence in the boat..."

Oyster Blew was purchased in 2016 and refitted to participate in the 2017-2019 Oyster World Rally. She performed fantastically well and is the perfect boat for blue water cruising.
