We’ve always had the appetite for special new-build projects and have pulled together partnerships and sometimes rented dedicated facilities around the Solent to make them happen. We partnered with race yacht specialists Green Marine for the custom tenders shown in the previous pages and have worked with many other specialists in the lightweight and performance sector.
Between 2008 and 2010, we delivered nearly £30m sales of special projects in parallel with the last of the Oyster 72s and 82s in our Southampton shipyard. Some of this team then helped us develop the Oyster 100 and 125 in Turkey, equally ‘special projects’.
Within the Concepts section you can find designs for two current Oyster owners who have asked us to look at their projects. Both are for owners who want to race under the ORC (Offshore Racing Congress) Superyacht rule and have some fast cruising in between.
