Heralding a new generation of Oysters, this 60 foot sailing yacht builds on the many accomplishments of the pioneering 56 and 575. Already our most successful model, with 22 sold in just two years, she is every inch an Oyster. Displaying our core design values and latest concepts her specification is informed by our larger yachts. From the refined systems that make her simple to sail shorthanded to the exceptional standard of craftsmanship and materials, everything has been considered for complete comfort and confidence at sea. The Oyster 565 has no limits: practical and well-provisioned for long distance sailing with excellent passage making speeds, she is equally happy cruising in coastal waters. Her powerful, easily-manageable sail plan means she is the ideal 60 foot sailboat for circumnavigation – five 565s will join the 2022-23 Oyster World Rally fleet.
The moment you step aboard it’s obvious that every detail has been carefully considered. Space is maximised for comfort and safety in this 60 foot sailing yacht and she displays all the classic Oyster design cues, offering unexpected volume below deck and generous stowage throughout. Guests can stretch out in the spacious cockpit, while the twin helm stations keep the business end of things separate for safer and easier handling. The flush, clutter-free fore and aft decks offer more space to relax and below, her large volume allows for a spacious interior and impressive owner’s cabin. Beautifully illuminated by light from the wrap-around saloon windows and signature Seascape windows, the saloon is well-connected to the ocean beyond, offering excellent views even from the deep sofas. The living area makes the most of the hull volume with a full navigation station and versatile sea cabin.
Given her lineage, it is no surprise the Oyster 565 is a joy to sail shorthanded or with crew. Designed for power, the standard pushbutton in-mast furling with a fractional-rigged sail plan make her easily manageable in all conditions. The twin helm positions offer clear views and control to trim sails, with lines situated in easy reach. And the fixed bowsprit allows for a range of efficient asymmetric sails and the 105% overlapping headsail makes her a breeze to manage shorthanded upwind. Combined with her wide-beamed aft and twin rudders, she is well-balanced and surefooted in lively seas yet light, direct and agile on the helm. All this adds up to excellent performance, an impressive turn of speed and good acceleration out of tacks. Over long distances, this impressive 57 foot sailing yacht will eat up the miles of any passage.
Like all Oysters, the new Oyster 565 has real soul – you can feel it the moment you step on board. Every design, engineering and handcrafted detail has been carefully considered and executed, creating a beautiful and versatile yacht that is capable of taking any ocean in its stride.
The Oyster 565 is incredibly easy to manoeuvre thanks to her powerful retractable bow and stern thrusters. More agile than your average 60 foot sailboat, you can spin her on her keel and slide into the tightest berths or move laterally onto the dock with ease. A choice of keel configurations means you can take her anywhere, with a fixed keel or centreboard option for shoal draft cruising that does not compromise upwind sailing capability.
Relaxing in the spacious master cabin aft you might think you are on a far larger yacht. Much of this is down to her wide beam aft and the light from the signature Seascape windows, not to mention the far-reaching views of the world outside. The result is a well-appointed space that is far more luxurious and comfortable than you find on an ordinary 60 foot sailboat for sale.
Oyster 565 offers a sense of space not normally found on a 60 foot sailing yacht for sale. The well-proportioned and well-planned living area offer communal entertaining spaces to share with friends and family or with a focused crew on extended ocean passages. Storage has been considered from every angle; there is a large forward sail locker, ample storage inside and an optional extended transom that offers additional storage in a full-width lazarette aft over the standard transom.

The journey to become an Oyster owner begins in many different ways. For some it starts as a childhood dream, for others, it’s the culmination of years of research that leads them to conclude there is no other choice but an Oyster. But for all those investing in a new Oyster the delights of ownership start the minute you begin her build. A key part of owning your Oyster is understanding the craftsmanship and attention to detail that go into her, and the insights you pick up through the build and handover process. Being part of this adds to the deep sense of ownership you will feel when you step aboard for the first time. To ensure this experience is something you will savour and cherish, we assign one of experienced project managers to guide you on every step of the way.
Our Project Managers are all experienced sailors who will help you turn your hopes, plans and dreams of adventure into reality, from the initial moulding of the hull to handover. Their practical experience has been gained from thousands of sailing miles (many have circumnavigated), previous builds and a deep knowledge of Oyster. Your Project Manager will be there throughout the build, offering advice on all aspects of the process along the way to make sure your boat is beyond expectation when she is handed over to you.
Your Project Manager will take time to get to know you and understand your plans – what you want to do with your yacht, where you would like to sail her and what is most important to you in terms of finish and equipment. They will then bring all your requirements together and guide you through the selection of the appropriate options and equipment to meet your needs.
A big part of the build for owners is regular yard visits (in person or online) so you can see her at key points during the build. Owning an Oyster is made richer by understanding the craftsmanship and attention to detail that go into them. These yard visits help you do just that – they are a great opportunity to meet our master craftspeople, see their skills in action and understand all aspects of construction of your yacht for complete peace of mind. Throughout we will keep you up-to-date and make sure you have all the information you need to make decisions at the right time.
On completion your yacht will be handed over to our commissioning team. This process takes six to eight weeks with an extreme attention to detail to meet the most exacting standards and ensure everything is perfect when you take ownership. This is followed by a week-long handover, when the team will introduce you to your yacht to literally show you the ropes. You will learn how to use each piece of equipment and technology you have specified, so you will set sail with complete confidence on your first Oyster adventure.
