Effortless sailing controls for exhilarating shorthanded sailing.
This technology is normally found on much larger yachts, but Seldén has developed smaller, high pressure aluminium hydraulic rams in the boom to control the outhaul, when both furling and unfurling. To make this technology fit comfortably in a 50 foot yacht, Seldén has reduced the size and weight of the powerpack that drives them. Powered by Seldén's proprietary control system, which reduces power consumption, the system is operated from the helm station, providing a true push-button sailing experience.
One of the most popular pieces of B&G kit specified for the Oyster 495 is the Triton wind/speed/depth system, with a Triton 4.1 display mounted on the port helm pedestal. The superb, optional Zeus3S plotter is located by the chart table and on the starboard pedestal, along with the displays in the companionway. We recommend the B&G V60-B VHF marine radio, teamed with the externally mounted GPS-500 antenna and the wireless remote H600 handset, to keep in the cockpit for emergencies. The NAC 3 course computer, with precision compass, autopilot controller and rudder sensor, integrates seamlessly with the automated sailing systems. You can rest assured, no matter where your adventures take you on your new Oyster 495, B&G will always be there to keep you on course and in touch.
The horizontal drive allows for more room in the engine room, making access for maintenance simple on this 50 foot yacht. Extremely quiet and extremely efficient, at a typical cruising speed of 8.5 knots, the engine is very lightly loaded (32%) and consumes as little as only six litres per hour. With an 800 litre fuel tank, it offers excellent range. The optional Fischer Panda generator can be fitted, which operates virtually silently at variable speeds based on power demand on the yacht.
The Oyster 495 is no different. The EVO® range of winches offers the perfect blend of style, functionality and reliability. Constant evolution and insights from racing mean these over-specified winches are steadfast in the toughest conditions for complete peace of mind when performance matters. The new Oyster 495 is fitted with a range of black anodised winches, including the Lewmar 55 electric self-tailing sheet winch and Lewmar 45 electric mainsheet winch. This is teamed with the Lewmar 45 self-tailing, mast-mounted halyard winch and Lewmar 50 self-tailing multifunction winch at the forward end of the cockpit. The electric winches are positioned within easy reach of the helm stations for effortless shorthanded sailing.
