A journey of adventure

Every voyage on an Oyster yacht has the potential to be a life changing experience.

Since chartering my first Oyster in 2013, I’ve sailed these bluewater yachts, most recently on my own Oyster 885, Lush. After taking the helm of Oyster Yachts in 2018, I’m hugely proud of how far we have come – together we are building something great.

Much as owning an Oyster is a true privilege, owning the business is all that and more – a responsibility I take very seriously. I am personally committed to continue to develop, build and support the world’s finest bluewater cruising yachts. Our sailing yachts have an undeniable strength in their DNA that flows through their build quality and the world-class support we offer our owners through Oyster Sailing Services. All this makes life-enhancing and life-changing adventures possible for our passionate, international family of owners.

Oyster is growing faster than ever and, to keep pace with demand, we have invested heavily in new facilities, design, technology and craft teams. As a result, we have enhanced our build quality, redefined our yachts’ performance and reimagined their interiors. Our yachts are built to last several lifetimes and many of them are already enjoying their second or third acts with new owners. Oyster leads the world of bluewater cruisers, with yachts that are truly beyond expectation.

At the heart of Oyster is our people: those who imagine, design and build these exceptional deck saloon yachts, and those who own and love them. Together, they make everything we do possible. Not surprisingly, we think of ourselves as a tight-knit family, supporting and inspiring each other with the adventures we go on, the tales we tell and the lasting memories we make.

I hope you will join us and discover what gives Oyster such a special place in our hearts before you set sail on your own amazing adventures.

Sailing with purpose

A collaboration for change

The future of the oceans is in our hands and we are committed to becoming the world’s most sustainable yacht business, delivering experiences, adventures under sail with a positive impact on the planet.

We have a head start – by their nature our yachts are the ultimate hybrid, but we’re committed to doing everything we can to improve their environmental impact and help our owners operate them in a responsible way. By 2030, our ambition is to produce a yacht in the most sustainable manner possible, and one that can be entirely self-sufficient.

We recognise our responsibilities and are taking an ambitious approach to minimising our environmental impact by setting clear and achievable sustainability goals. As part of this, we have reviewed every aspect of our operations to minimise waste, reduce energy use and plastic consumption, whilst also considering the materials we use to manufacture our yachts.

All the practical actions we are taking, both large and small, when combined will have a material positive impact on our planet and oceans, and help us work towards our primary goal by 2030.
