Enjoy the perfect balance of elegant cruising and exhilarating sailing on Midnight - her extended deck and swim platform offers even more stunning space to entertain.

With Oyster’s trademark combination of sophisticated luxury, comfort and performance, Midnight is also designed for effortless and exhilarating sailing if you decide to take the helm. Or you can just sit back, relax and enjoy bluewater cruising at its finest.

Her standout feature is her extended counter stern, which takes her deck length to 86 feet – this offers a much larger aft deck area for sunbathing, with a large fold-down stern bathing platform that is the perfect spot for sundowners. The split cockpit completes the superyacht yacht feel, with a generous protected guest cockpit with large, fitted tables for some serious ‘al fresco dining.

Below deck, the stunning interior is meticulously finished in beautiful cherry wood teamed with sumptuous leather upholstery, offering a contemporary feel that is both luxurious and cocooning. There is a choice of raised and lower saloons, both of which offer exceptionally inviting alternatives to the protected cockpit and open aft deck.

The upper saloon offers direct line of sight outboard, with panoramic views and direct access to the cockpit. All the beautifully appointed guest accommodation is located aft of the main saloon, providing you and your guests with privacy from the galley and the en suite crew accommodation, both of which are tucked well away forward of the saloon.

Meet the crew


James Richman

James was born and raised in Suffolk England. Very much the adventurous type he took to sailing from the age of six when he undertook his first RYA course sailing a Mirror dinghy. He made the steady progression to yachts from dinghies in his teenage years, cruising the east coast of England and crossing the North Sea to Northern Europe.

At eighteen he became a dock master at the local marina, a dream job that allowed him to pursue his passion for boats. Two years later James was on his first Atlantic crossing, taking part in the 2009 ARC. He spent the season in the Caribbean taking part in regattas and working as a deck hand on charter yachts. He sailed back to the UK after his first season and undertook some educational qualifications, doing delivery work in between to fund it. James achieved his Yachtmaster and has spent his subsequent career between the UK, Caribbean and Mediterranean.

James was also a reservist for the Royal Navy. He passed basic training in 2013 at HMS Raleigh where he was appointed class leader and won the Captain’s prize for best recruit. The Navy allowed James to further practice his passions for team work, good seamanship and professionalism. He met his partner Elyse in 2013 in Antigua. They have been together ever since and have worked together on a number of different yachts around the world and were married in 2019. James has over 70,000 sea miles and has raced in offshore campaigns including the Fastnet, Caribbean 600 and the Middle sea race. He has cruised extensively with Elyse around the Mediterranean and Caribbean and has crossed the Atlantic several times. Sailing is a career and a hobby for James and he enjoys every minute of being afloat.

MATE: James and Elyse will be joined by a mate / stew to provide top service.


Elyse Labrecque

Elyse was born in the country side near Quebec City, Canada, then moved to Montreal at the age of 19 to look for new challenges. She studied Visual Arts in College and then excelled in a Professional Pastry course at the ITHQ of Montreal. She has been a keen cook since childhood and loves to experiment and create wonderful meals for her friends and family.

Having her first job as a Pastry Chef in a reputable bistro in Montreal at the age of 24, she then moved to Antigua the following year where she worked as Pastry Chef as well as Raw Bar Chef in a busy waterfront restaurant. Elyse got the bug for sailing when starting to work with James chartering around the Mediterranean, the perfect vehicle for her love for adventure, gastronomy and hospitality. She is looking forward to sharing those passions, preparing favourite meals and making sure guests have a wonderful time aboard Midnight.

James and Elyse are joined by a Mate to assist with hosting and deck duties.


Gregory Williams

Greg comes from Sheffield, England, and sailed dinghies on a local reservoir growing up. Upon leaving school, he started yacht deliveries along the coast of Europe, eventually showing enough promise to be offered a place on a yachtmaster traineeship in the Caribbean.
Greg spent nine months learning his trade in the racing charter business, working with clients and competing in events such as the Caribbean 600, Antigua Sailing Week, Fastnet and Cowes Week. After passing his Yachtmaster Offshore in the UK, he sailed back to the Caribbean and spent a season working and racing before signing on for a delivery across the Pacific via Panama.
During the two years he spent in the Pacific, Greg spent a season cruising in Fiji, saw the 2021 America's Cup in Auckland, New Zealand and sailed back to Panama aboard a hundred year old topsail schooner, among other things.
With roughly 40,000 sailing miles to date, Greg is thoroughly competent and knowledgeable in all matters of sailing and serves as steward in addition to his duties as mate.
Sailing is his lifelong passion and he aspires to continue working on the water for the foreseeable future. His other hobbies include celestial navigation, racing and the history of sailing.
