Built to the exacting specification of an established American yachtsman as his second Oyster, Ravenous II is an iconic presence on the US Eastern seaboard and Caribbean circuit.
The design brief was to create a boat that was lively on the racecourse to compete in Oyster Regattas, shallow draft for exploring the Chesapeake Bay and islands, safe and lavish accommodation for a large cruising family, and marketable as a five-star flagship of the Oyster Charter Fleet. No expense was spared in the build, and all objectives were exceeded with flying colors.
A masterful fusion of the classic and the contemporary, Ravenous II sports a flag blue hull and a white carbon mast with V-boom, which creates a striking presence in any anchorage.
Her interior ambience is African inspired, and features a breathtaking light and airy maple joinery with rich mahogany accents and stunning teak soleboards, complimented by a plush light leather upholstery. The raised saloon dining area and nav station afford commanding horizon views from the deck saloon windows, while a comfortable lower saloon with coffee table functions well as a breakfast nook, or just lounging below.
Three spacious guest cabins with en-suite facilities, hanging lockers, and entertainment offer unparalleled comfort, while hideaway pipe berths can accommodate larger numbers if required. Generous crew quarters and galley forward naturally provide privacy and separation while ensuring the boat is configured for silver service.
In a word, the deck is versatile. From a competitively crewed race program, to a shorthanded passage, to sundowners or spontaneous alfresco dining on a moonlit evening, the spacious cockpit perfectly delivers what the moment needs, while top of the line deck hardware ensure that the boat performs when the owner wants.
Consistently crewed, maintained and refit at the highest level, Ravenous II must be seen to be believed.
