The Oyster 565 is a yacht without limits.
Practical and spacious for exhilarating blue water sailing, or relaxed coastal cruising for a couple, family and friends.
For new yacht sales and our service operation in the Americas, visit our offices in the heart of the US East coast sailing scene, Newport, Rhode Island. We would be delighted to help.
Sleek, elegant lines and superyacht inspired features of the 565 epitomises the iconic style and spirit of Oyster yachts.
The 57 foot hull of the 565 is designed, engineered and certified to meet Lloyd’s Register Certification and constructed using the highest quality materials. It features a reinforced, monolithic composite structure for superior strength, stiffness and weight-optimisation, with further reinforcement in the slam zones and keel area.
Incorporating the latest nautical and domestic technology, every element from the hull, winches, through to the generator and door hinges are specifically specified for performance, strength and longevity. The levels of finish and luxury are of the highest standards thanks to the skill of our designers and master craftspeople. Every detail of the Oyster 565, from the strength of the hull, down to the smallest fixing, has been considered for outstanding robustness and seaworthiness to give you complete confidence at sea.
Packed with features cascaded down from our larger yachts – from the signature triple Seascape windows to the optional superyacht inspired hydraulic bathing deck, the 565 is a true luxury 60 foot sailboat for sale. The instantly recognisable deck saloon offers the perfect place for guests to relax under sail or at anchor. Twin helm stations are centrally located aft of the cockpit and with concealed lines, together with flush fore and aft decks, moving around is safe and easy, while providing ample space for entertaining.
Designed for fast cruising, this 60 foot sailing yacht has an impressive turn of speed. The standard push-button in-mast furling, with a fractional-rigged sail plan, make her easily manageable in any conditions.
Twin helm positions house the intuitive powered sailing controls and navigation equipment, with electric winches in easy reach. A fixed bowsprit accommodates a choice of asymmetric sails and the 105% overlapping headsail. Her wide-beam aft and twin rudders make her sure-footed and well-balanced in boisterous seas, yet light, direct and agile on the helm. On long passages, she ticks off the miles effortlessly and when arriving safely at your destination, her optional, powerful, retractable bow and stern thrusters make her simple to manoeuvre – spin her on her keel and slide into the tightest berths.
The exceptional volume below decks offers the opportunity to create stylish contemporary interiors that make a real home from home.
Well-appointed throughout, the social spaces, galley and cabins are all well-proportioned, comfortable and luxurious, while being eminently usable. With materials, fixtures and fittings carefully considered, from the mood lighting system to the saloon table, optional day bed and intuitively positioned grab rails – everything is specified to the highest standard. Oyster’s attention to detail reveals itself in everything from the beautiful handcrafted cabinetry, hand-assembled wiring loom, to the rubber mounted wooden floors that eliminate floorboard creaks. With a choice of versatile cabin layouts, there is space for up to six guests and on extended ocean passages the versatile work room doubles as a cabin for an additional crew member.
Informed by decades of owner adventures, the Oyster 565, the best 60 foot sailboat home from home, is a liveaboard yacht designed for long periods at sea. Every inch has been considered to provide a welcoming environment, extensive stowage and easy access for maintenance.
On deck, a convenient forward sail locker and a full width lazarette aft provide excellent stowage. Down below, the heavily cored hull creates a real sense of peace and calm, a safe haven in heavy weather. Home luxuries include full-sized appliances in the longitudinal galley, which is well designed and equipped for cooking at sea. The saloon is light and spacious, with excellent natural ventilation from the forward opening saloon windows and optional air conditioning. The generous cabins, quality, deep mattresses, island berths, mirrors, cedar lined wardrobes and en suites create living spaces that are relaxed and comfortable.
Equipped with a variety of convenient and connected tech, living aboard is easier, more enjoyable and safer than ever before. From Infotainment systems, wireless sound and sophisticated mood lighting, through to optional internet, WIFI and enhanced navigation systems, the 565 delivers on technology we take for granted. The dedicated navigation station in the heart of the saloon is the technology hub, featuring a optional PC, lift-top desk; plotter; VHF radio; power management; generator control; switchboard; and plenty of power sockets. It doubles as the ideal work-aboard space and is home to the Oyster Command™ system – Oyster’s intuitive digital switching system which connects everything including entertainment, utilities, lighting and monitoring systems. It can also be accessed from the helm station and additional touchscreens can be fitted in cabins as an optional extra.
