Inspired and inspiring: the new 885 Grand Tourer. With the first model already in production, here’s a sneak preview into the thinking behind our first blue water Grand Tourer.
The first Grand Tourer automobiles took to the roads of Europe in the 1950s. Designed for effortless driving over long distances, they combined true luxury with exceptional performance capability. This was our inspiration when asked by a long-time Oyster owner with the desire to build a more performance-orientated yacht. The result is the Oyster 885GT – a Grand Tourer for the ocean – designed for fast, comfortable passage-making.
Like any true Grand Tourer, luxury and styling is at the heart of the 885GT. She is available in two striking colour schemes and features our signature low-profile deck saloon with dark wraparound windows with the instantly recognisable Oyster ‘snarl’. Like all Oysters, she is practical, versatile and spacious. Designed for onboard living for extended periods, she is well-provisioned and equipped with the comforts and luxuries of home. So wherever you take her, you will arrive at your destination faster and more relaxed than ever before.
Every aspect of performance has been considered. She boasts an array of additional features that have been incorporated into the 885 Series II design that enhance her sailing capabilities. Key highlights include her custom T-keel with cast bronze fin and lead bulb to reduce overall weight. The taller carbon rig with SCR rigging offers further weight savings aloft and significantly increased sail area for added power.
