We are continually reviewing the specification for each model in our range to take advantage of new equipment, advice from our technical and support departments and, of course, the invaluable feedback from our owners on their world travels. For the popular Oyster 575, we have taken this review a stage further, with a complete revamp of her interior styling and subtle changes to the layout.
The saloon now has the vertical ‘Seascape’ windows that are such a striking feature of the award winning Oyster 625 and are now being incorporated into most of the Oyster fleet from the Oyster 575 up. Another positive design feature brought from the 625 is raising the chart area up to the same level as the rest of the saloon seating, effectively extending the apparent seating area and enabling the chart table to flow seamlessly into the surrounding joinery. A joinered companionway staircase now leads you below decks, adding to the feeling of quality and security. The forward guest cabin has been enlarged and now has its own access directly into the forward head.
The 575’s new joinery styling covers a host of subtle enhancements including sculpted headliners, incorporating accent lighting in the saloon, more contemporary heads styling, upgraded cabin doors and door furniture and custom saloon air con outlets, while on the practical side, the standard specification now includes, Formula spars, a new Volvo D3 engine and Raymarine i70 sailing instruments.
Pure hull lines from Humphreys Yacht Design have ensured that the Oyster 575 is a fast passage maker, resulting in effortless blue water cruising and exhilarating performance - considered the perfect yacht for the nine owners who have chosen her as their entries for the Oyster World Rally in 2017.
The Oyster 575’s comfortable and practical, four-cabin layout and spacious saloon and dining areas provide plenty of accommodation below decks for those sailing with their families or crew, whilst on deck her flush hatches, twin-wheel configuration and substantial cockpit allows plenty of room for eight to enjoy dining al fresco or simply relax.
As we tacked back and forth the 575 proved herself a very comfortable boat to sail. I can well imagine doing a round the world trip in this boat.
The 575 proved easy to handle, manageable for a couple, with powered systems all to hand. She’s another slippery yacht from Humphreys, coupled with an easy motion that will be greatly appreciated at sea.”
