Working with an obsessive attention to detail and the finest materials, our craftspeople know how to translate your vision into a yacht that is an Oyster through and through but is also unique to you.
All our yachts are built with a meticulous attention to detail. Every aspect of the build undergoes exacting scrutiny throughout the build process. The hull and deck are Lloyd’s Register certified for strength and integrity. We have only one rule when it comes to quality – if the smallest detail is not perfect, it doesn’t leave the workshop.
We are a British boatbuilder with an enduring heritage spanning over 47 years. Our yards have been in operation for over 100 years, each individually renowned as part of a local boatbuilding tradition. Time-honoured trades and experience are passed down through generations, from one master to the next apprentice.

The new Oyster 885GT combines sophisticated bluewater performance with the luxury, comfort and safety for which Oyster is world-renowned. Inspired by the Grand Tourer automobiles of the 1950s which were designed for fast, effortless driving over long distances, combining true luxury with exceptional performance capability. This was our inspiration when asked by a long-time Oyster owner with the desire to take the outstanding performance of the Oyster 885 and optimise it for even faster passage making. The result is the Oyster 885GT – a Grand Tourer for the ocean.
Every aspect of performance has been considered to create a lighter boat with reduced displacement to enhance performance. These remarkable bluewater cruisers are true Grand Tourers with optimised performance and luxury all in one.
Many elements of the design have been honed and finessed to offer an even more exhilarating sailing experience. Her taller carbon rig, upgraded winches, optimised sail wardrobe, carbon standing rigging and deeper T-Keel all inform her enhanced performance.
Every ounce counts. A T-Keel and lighter carbon elements are used throughout to give the GT rewarding agility and turn of speed on the open ocean.
Like any true Grand Tourer, luxury and styling is at the heart of the 885GT. She is easily identified by the striking grey or white GT colour schemes. Or select your own favourite colours. Whichever scheme you choose, she will also feature signature GT red rudders and keel.
Our designers have focused on the details that make all the difference. The result is a yacht that is more than the sum of its parts, highly-tuned to perform.
Carbon Hall Spars with a 4-spreader taller mast feature SCR rigging and Park Avenue V-boom. Her carbon rigging is 50% stronger and 70% lighter. A taller rig allows for 5% more upwind sail area and 15% more downwind sail area is achieved from the extended bowsprit.
Specified with optimised North 3Di Ocean sail package with 780 Main and Headsail. This innovative, stronger and lighter composite construction is tough enough to handle multiple circumnavigations. Regatta upgrade Technora ropes for improved heat resistance and better sheet control when you need it.

Oyster Command™ is a digital switching system that controls everything from on board entertainment and lighting, to all your main systems, utilities, and security.

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. They will then help you choose the right options and equipment to meet your needs.
We will keep you up-to-date and make sure you have all the information you need to make decisions at the right time. A key part of owning your Oyster is understanding the craftsmanship and attention to detail that go into her.

You will be invited to see your 885 at different stages throughout her build, including several visits to the moulding and fit-out yards. Upon completion she will be commissioned – a process that takes five to eight weeks with an extreme attention to detail to meet the most exacting standards, so everything is perfect when you take ownership.
