Highly specified ocean-ready 82 with flag blue hull, carbon cutter rig, carbon in-boom main, stunning cherry interior and loaded with extras. Darling received a major refit at Oyster Southampton 2013-2014 with new rigging, paint job, decks and more. She is realistically priced and turnkey.
From any angle, the Oyster 82 looks refined and stylish. 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 air 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 favorably with many larger vessels.
The 82’s split cockpit has 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 incorporates seating and an entertainment area.
The Oyster 82 offers full standing headroom under the cockpit floor, with a centerline passageway leading aft to the owner’s stateroom and two guest cabins. This gives 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.
Early viewing recommended.
