Designed by Rob Humphreys and the Oyster design team and is a natural successor to the successful Oyster 485. With a longer waterline, more interior volume and a more powerful rig, she is ‘bigger’ yacht than her predecessor.
Popular among those owners who prefer the simpler handling and reduced maintenance of a 50 footer, the 49 offers excellent interior space, with six berths in three comfortable cabins, and excellent headroom throughout. Uncluttered decks and a generously sized centre cockpit make her simple to sail, and a pleasure to liveaboard. Fifteen Oyster 49s were launched between 2001 and 2007.
