Commissioned in 2012 Midnight is the youngest of the iconic raised saloon Oyster 82 fleet and owned by the founder of Oyster as his personal yacht.Midnights stand out feature being the extended ‘counter stern' which extends her on deck length to 86 feet and creates a much larger aft deck area for entertaining, sunbathing and with a large fold down stern platform for easy sea access.
Below deck, the interior is fitted in beautiful cherry wood with warm beige leather upholstery. A raised and lower saloon offer comfortable alternatives to the vast cockpit and aft deck. The guest accommodation is located aft of the main saloon. Midnight can accommodate six guests in three cabins each with an ensuite head with shower. The main cabin has a centerline double berth with adjustable beds for sitting up and reading or watching TV/DVD. The Starboard cabin has a double berth and the Port cabin two side by side twin beds each with a private head and shower.
Midnight is fitted with all of the finest quality luxuries expected of an Oyster yacht. Finger tip sail handling controls make for easy, effortless sailing giving anyone time to relax and enjoy cruising at its finest.
