45 Years of British Yachting Expertise

Our expertise is proven through 45 years of experience building over 1000 yachts and with more than 350 of these designed in partnership with Humphreys Yacht Design over the last 20 years, Oyster’s new luxury yacht builder team has extensive knowledge which is second-to-none. Complemented by specialists who have completed demanding custom builds and refit projects ranging from the J-Class Velsheda to modern classics and lightweight race yachts, Oyster DNA is also defined by long-lasting relationships with leading industry partners and suppliers in Britain and around the world.

Better by Design

However important the latest styling feature may be, the demands of the sea never change. Oyster’s yacht design team ensure that behind the handcrafted furniture and inside the solidly built hull, there lies a harmony of technology, systems and equipment to provide a quiet, reliable, comfortable home from home.

Dedicated Team

It can take a long time between the first conversation and finding the time away from business life to enjoy sailing off in your new Oyster. We help you personally with all stages of your yacht build, managed directly by Oyster staff. After the contract has been completed and whilst waiting for build to start, your dedicated project manager will start to help you through the choices you can make. Working closely with you right through to handover, he or she will ensure you enjoy this as much as sailing your new Oyster yacht.

British Yacht Build Quality

A long serving team of skilful shipwrights and engineers in two shipyards are proud of Oyster’s British history. Recognising Oyster as a leading luxury yacht builder and most successful British shipyard of series-built yachts, clients from around the world value this heritage.

Solidity & Stability

In every sense of the words, solidity and stability are guaranteed with Oyster – both in the yachts and within the Company. With many husband and wife teams and with many employees now counting more than 20 years working for Oyster, the luxury yacht builder team is unique. More than 40 years served by the executive team alone brings wise and clear decision making in to the business, ensuring the value of your investment in Oyster is maintained.
