As you would expect on an offshore sailboat, the Oyster 745 is luxurious and well-appointed, for weekend cruising or setting sail around the world. Below decks, the large hull volume offers versatile choices to customise the layout. The generous aft ensuite owner’s cabin is luxurious and light, with signature triple Seascape windows connecting you to spectacular views. A further three ensuite guest cabins let you make the most of the space. The forward-opening saloon windows and Seascapes flood the saloon with light, making it a delightful space in which to entertain or relax. Her saloon table can seat eight or more comfortably, or you can dine in the cockpit with up to 12 guests on the fold-out table with its integrated refrigerator.

The 745 Centreboard provides the best of both worlds - the convenience of shallow-draft and the benefits of serious upwind performance with her centreboard down. Reducing the draft from 3.10m/10’2” to a remarkable 1.98m/6’.6”, means you can anchor anywhere you choose with complete confidence. The retractable centreboard is raised and lowered at the touch of a button from the helm station. The centreboard swings up inside the shallow-draft ballast keel to give you maximum clearance of the seabed – all without compromising the openness and spaciousness of the 745 layout and interior joinery.
The new Oyster 745 Centreboard variant is paired with a carbon mast and boom, with carbon composite standard rigging, all designed to maximise stability and balance, while reducing weight for optimum performance under sail. With the centreboard down she grips the water giving truly outstanding windward performance, whilst her twin rudders provide rewarding finger-tip control – making her an exceptionally comfortable and exhilarating yacht to sail.
