First 885GT bluewater Grand Tourer is in production

According to the yard, the creation of the new 885GT from Oyster Yachts came about after a long-time Oyster owner requested a yacht that combines luxury with offshore capability.

This performance-orientated yacht was inspired by the classic automobiles of the 1950s, which were designed for effortless driving over long distances.

Optimised for fast, comfortable, passage-making, with luxury and styling, the 885GT is available in two striking colour schemes.

Features include the luxury yacht builder’s signature low-profile deck saloon with dark wraparound windows with the instantly recognisable Oyster ‘snarl’.

Practical, versatile and spacious, she is designed for living onboard for extended periods with all the comforts and luxury of home.

Key highlights include a custom T-keel with cast bronze fin and lead bulb and light-cored joinery to reduce overall weight. An array of additional features has been incorporated into the 885GT design, further enhancing her sailing capabilities and performance, including a taller carbon rig with SCR rigging, which will offer further weight savings and allow a significantly increased sail area for added power.
