A Note From Richard Hadida, CEO & Owner

Dear friends of Oyster,

I hope you and your loved ones remain safe and well.

I wanted to send you a short note to update you on what measures we have put in place to ensure the wellbeing of our employees, partners, crews and yachts in the short term and protect the business in the longer term.

I am in awe of all our employees who are doing their best to maintain a sense of business as usual in this constantly evolving situation and adapt to the challenging working environment. Protecting employees and their safety remains a priority and therefore we have introduced stringent hygiene protocols in line with government guidelines. At our boatyards we have changed shift patterns so that boat builders can work in smaller teams to ‘social distance’ themselves to minimise transmission of the virus. Our boatyards, brokerage, charter, new boat sales and after sales teams are all contactable if you need us. 

Despite these unprecedented times I am positive about our future. We have a full order book for the next 18-months and I am fully committed to Oyster. When the time comes, we will play our part in helping to rebuild the economy and be there to support you.

To keep us focused on the positive we will continue to share your wonderful adventures experienced on our beautiful yachts.

Fair winds,
