Oyster 565 Sailing Yacht Design and Layout

Optimise your Oyster 565 for the Oyster World Rally, regattas, or relaxed coastal cruising.

The latest yacht in our G6 fleet, the sailing yacht design of the Oyster 565 is configurable to her owner’s needs and preferences. She has been designed for shorthanded family and couples sailing with safety and comfort in mind and is the perfect size to sail comfortably without professional crew.

This Oyster 565 is borne from 43 years of experience building over 120 Oyster 56 and Oyster 575 blue water sailing yachts. From long-distance liveaboard sailing to coastal family cruising, the Oyster 565 makes it all possible. What’s more, with contemporary interiors that can be modified to suit you, you’ll have your pick of joinery, leathers and fabrics to become your on-the-water home. Discover her possible configurations below.


Oyster 565 Exterior

We understand our owners’ visions to create to perfect yacht. That’s why the Oyster 565 can be built with a variety of different rig configurations and two possible deck plans.

Sail Plan

A standard Oyster 565 sail plan for short-handed sailing includes in-mast furling and 105% blade headsail, allowing for easy manoeuvring and sail-handling wherever you are in the world, from relaxed cruising to a global circumnavigation, such as in the Oyster World Rally.

There is also the option to configure the yacht with a ‘sports pack’ for performance cruising, optimising your Oyster 565 for fast long-distance cruising or sailing events such as the Oyster Regatta.

Keel Options

The Oyster 565’s twin rudder hull form can be combined with a supershoal centreboard for safe shallow-water sailing.

Deck Plans

There is an also option for an extended transom which provides large and open aft-deck space for entertaining. This also creates greater storage space ideal for long distance blue water sailing.

The sailing yacht design of the Oyster 565 can also be customised with a large hydraulic bathing platform, providing quick and easy access to the water when the yacht is at anchor.

Oyster 565 Interior

The Oyster 565 is available with two personalised layouts designed to suit your preferences tailored to your needs. Browse our typical sailing yacht design layouts below.

Layout 1 - Master Cabin Aft

Our traditional layout positions the master cabin aft, with the two guest cabins forward and a utility cabin which can be lengthened to include an additional berth.

In addition to the midship Seascape windows, which come as standard on all of our G6 range, you can choose to add Seascape windows into the master cabin.

Layout 2 - Master Cabin Forward

The Oyster 565 can be configured with the master cabin forward - a first in Oyster’s yacht design history. This format means the aft section can either stay as one large cabin or be adapted into two double cabins, depending on the number of guests you envisage to have on board with you.
