Post Brexit - new orders for Oyster Yachts
Oyster Yachts are delighted to announce that confidence seems to be increasing post Brexit and to confirm that we have signed contracts for the new build of the 9th Oyster 885; the 42nd Oyster 575, and the 20th Oyster 625. In addition, in the brokerage market - Oyster 100-02 Penelope and Oyster 125-01 Twilight are both under contract – and this week we launch the 6th Oyster 825 which is heading off on the Oyster World Rally in Jan '17 from Antigua.
This activity since Brexit brings the total value signed in the last 12 months to just over £40m for new Oyster yachts and well over £25m for brokerage sales.
David Tydeman, Oyster CEO comments "The market has been patchy over the past 12 months and the Referendum certainly added pressure for clients to defer their decisions. We're proud that Oyster has a strong order book, boosted by these recent contracts since the Brexit vote and we are quietly confident we'll close 2016 with at least the £70m order book we ended 2015 with. We have really solid interest in the new mid-range Oyster 675 and Oyster 745 and look forward to presenting these yachts at the Southampton and Cannes Boat Shows."
