Currently under her second ownership since being launched, Solitaire is the highest specified Oyster 72 ever built.
Solitaire was built with a breathtaking attention to detail by a very experienced owner. From the carbon mast and spars, to the beautiful flush hatches and clear decks. The deck is further complemented by carbon steering wheels, custom winches and custom deck fittings; even the winches have custom LED switches.
Once below, you enter a class leading interior, which is as beautifully proportioned as it is practical and luxurious. The owner and builder have extended the sleek modern lines and clutter-free feel. Details such as custom lighting systems, state of the art entertainment systems, air conditioning, heating, designer taps, even the ventilation system has been considered to further enhance the experience created below decks.
Performance-wise, the 72 is hard to beat. Rob Humphreys has designed a quick, easily driven hull with beautiful lines and yet a rig that is carefully thought out and enables this yacht to be sailed short handed whilst providing quick speeds too.
Solitaire has undergone a significant amount of work post a very busy US East Coast season with the family. Jobs have included the rig being taken out and painted. Along with a full NDT test on all standing rigging. Engine room detailing, deck detailing, interior and exterior jobs including hatch rams, anchor locker, hydraulics, generator sound proofing, tender detailing etc.
Solitaire is lying in Palma and available for viewing.
