The sixth Oyster 825, Enso, launches
Oyster 825-06 launched on Thursday 25th August 2016. Replicating 885-01 Lush who sailed straight from the shipyard to Antigua for 32,000 miles in the first Oyster World Rally, Enso has been built specially for the next Oyster World Rally and she will leave Southampton in October and then from Antigua in January 2017 on a 27-month adventure circumnavigating the world in the company of 33 other Oyster yachts.
Enso is fully air-conditioned to cope with the variety of climates she will experience whilst sailing around the world. The owners are very focussed on well-being and their yacht has an advanced water purification system and all cables have additional shielding to lower electromagnetic field transmission. She will have four crew and is built with family and friends in mind with a four bunk cabin and spacious guest double plus a master suite aft. There is a good separation between crew and guests with the crew quarters all forward. 825-06 interior is beautifully finished in washed oak with leather serving on all the internal stainless steel work. The stunning saloon and cockpit space will comfortably enhance their forthcoming sailing adventures. With Hall Spars in-boom furling and North 3di Endurance sails she is well equipped to sail the world’s oceans.
To quote Tim Thomas from Boat International - August 2015 issue, “The Oyster 825 is a true sailor’s boat customised the way you want it and cruised for a long enjoyable time. She’s light, nimble and – when it comes to sailing - remarkably easily driven.”
The Oyster 825 has proved itself in many events including the ARC and in the Superyacht regatta circuit. Oyster 825-03 Maegan (pictured below) won her class and was second overall in the Palma Superyacht Cup 2015 and was second in the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous earlier this year. Oyster 825-04 Albatros has completed two transatlantic crossings and she and Maegan have between them clocked up more than 30,000 nm.
