Contract signed for the first Oyster 885 Lower Saloon version

3 years after the first Oyster 885 “Lush” was shown to the world at the Southampton Boat Show in 2012 just prior to her circumnavigation on the first Oyster World Rally, Oyster is delighted to announce the contract to build Oyster 885 hull number 8 with a very special layout.

The Oyster 885 is available with two different deck superstructures dramatically changing the headroom in the saloon. The first Raised Deck version (Oyster 885-04RS) was handed over to its owner earlier this year and hull number 07, also a Raised Deck version, will handover in spring 2016. All the rest have been variations on the standard Deck Saloon version.

We’re very excited by this latest contract for an existing Oyster owner moving up in size. Their “Lower Saloon version with the Raised Deck Superstructure" will provide nearly 8 foot of internal headroom in the saloon. Combine this spacious saloon with the Seascape vertical windows (similar to Oyster 825, Maegan, pictured) and she will be simply stunning. The owner has also chosen to use one of the aft guest cabins to extend his master stateroom and provide a private, personal space to relax.

Launching 2017, this is a yacht to watch!
