A unique opportunity to own a rare and lightly used centerboard Oyster 625 that draws only 6ft.
Kathara was the pioneer of the now extremely popular custom layout that features three double cabins, allowing for a large VIP suite forward that can be used as generous guest accommodation or even an alternate owner’s cabin. The owner’s cabin offers a second entrance to a starboard midship cabin where you will find a workbench that easily transforms to a sea berth with enhanced storage space below. Oyster’s signature triple-vertical seascape windows allow incredible visibility and natural light from the saloon, and stand out as a hallmark feature of the modern Oyster from the outside.
Finished in light maple joinery and teak V-groove flooring, Kathara is as beautiful as she is practical. In-mast furling cutter rig makes for push-button sail handling in all conditions, twin rudder centerboard configuration offers superior performance and effortless steering. The deck boasts a luxurious walk-through cockpit, twin helms, flush hatches and flush aft deck, and a generous sail locker forward, which compliments the huge lazarette to provide ample stowage for gear and sails.
Commissioned as the third Oyster for a meticulous, engineering–minded owner that was personally involved in every detail of the build, every aspect has been considered to outfit this yacht for comfortable world cruising and exploration. No expense was spared in the build or maintenance, Kathara is presented in immaculate turn-key condition. Climb aboard and you are ready to sail around the world on a pedigree example of one of Oyster’s most successful models ever – the triple-award winning 625.
Currently cruising the Pacific as part of the Oyster World Rally, Kathara presents an incredible opportunity for a new owner to take delivery in Australia or New Zealand and continue on the second half of the rally, first exploring Asia, then crossing the Indian Ocean before rounding the Cape of Good Hope and crossing the Atlantic and heading for the Caribbean via Brazil. Alternately, the yacht could be shipped anywhere worldwide.
