WHAT WE SAY

Broker's comments

Oyster Brokerage are delighted to announce the listing of 82 Bill and Me.

The Oyster 82 was the largest Oyster, and the flagship of our range, when she was launched in 2004. Designed by Rob Humphreys in conjunction with our own design team, the 82 is very much a distillation of his previous Oyster designs and, like them, was designed and engineered for effortless long-distance cruising. Elegant and refined, the 82 is beautifully balanced, 240-mile days become a reality and while big and powerful, the 82 is also capable of being handled by a small crew or couple. Full use is made of the available deck space to split the cockpits into working and lounging areas, the forward cockpit area is secure and well protected, a sociable relaxation area with large cockpit tables offering ‘al fresco’ dining. The working cockpit is aft of this with twin helm positions, winches, and sail control systems positioned for ease of use. All the 82s were launched as cutters, with a powerful overlapping genoa, and staysail for stronger conditions. 

Below decks, almost all 82s have the raised saloon, which works beautifully at this size, and allows panoramic views while seated from the saloon/dining area, and a raised navigation station positioned close to the companionway. It also allows easy access to the cockpit and a spacious area below for engine and machinery. Down a few more steps are the galley and lower snug with its own table and TV. The magnificent owner’s stateroom is aft, with two en-suite guest double cabins. Crew accommodation is forward, giving great separation and privacy. The 82 is both an accomplished bluewater family cruiser and a successful charter yacht. Seventeen 82s were launched in total between 2004 and 2012.

Bill and Me is a 2009 example, hull number 09, and has cruised the UK and Mediterranean in her current ownership. She has distinctive orange spars which are carbon, saving a considerable amount of weight aloft, and when combined with her fully battened mainsail enhances her sailing performance considerably. She has warm cherry joinery below decks where she sleeps up to nine in five cabins, with three additional Pullman berths. Well maintained and in lovely condition throughout, she is now in Ipswich, and available for viewing at any convenient time.
