Oyster have produced some wonderful yachts in the mid forty-foot size range including the 435, original 46, and the 45/47. All have been hand built with the same care, attention and materials as their larger sisters, and offer the versatility of being superb ocean cruising yachts, whilst also offering better access to some more restricted cruising areas, and allowing more straightforward handling and maintenance.
Blue Pearl is a striking example, with dark blue hull and maple joinery giving a light and modern feel below decks. Still in her second ownership, she has been sailed in the UK, but predominantly in the Mediterranean, where she has been a family holiday yacht. Simply rigged with electric push button furling to her mainsail and genoa, allowing sail handling from the cockpit, Blue Pearl is also equipped for much longer passages, with generator, water maker, freezer, davits and heating.
It is also worth noting that Blue Pearl has the optional shaft drive in lieu of the standard sail drive.
