Oyster Brokerage is delighted to announce the listing Oyster 575/30 Briviba. Speciﬁcally designed to allow the best of both worlds, Briviba’s centreboard lifts into a lengthened keel stub which means that she draws just 1.65m (5’5”). With the centreboard down she draws an impressive 3.82m (12’6”), greatly enhancing her upwind performance. Her twin rudders reduce her draft and also give the helmsman ﬁngertip control even in boisterous conditions.
The Oyster 575 was ﬁrst launched in 2010 as a replacement for the extraordinarily successful Oyster 56, of which we launched seventy-ﬁve. This size range is so popular because it combines safe and rapid ocean sailing with comfortable live-aboard cruising, but is it also compact enough to allow easy handling by a couple without crew. Rob Humphreys made the 575 longer and more powerful than its predecessor, increasing the volume considerably, and splitting the centre cockpit to create a working cockpit aft and a safe and protected relaxing area forward. The twin wheels allow the helmsman a better view of the sails underway, and also simplify access to the dock when moored stern to.
Briviba is a beautiful example of the 575, in her second ownership with light use and an ongoing extensive maintenance programme. She is resplendent with her light grey topsides, white coachroof and teak laid deck. She beneﬁts from a fully furling hydraulic push button rig, so she is easy to handle and simplicity itself to reef, and also has a carbon bowsprit and top down gennaker furling system, and white sails by Elvstrøm to enhance her sailing performance.
Below decks she sleeps seven in four cabins, without recourse to the saloon, and her interior joinery is ﬁnished in light oak with eye catching horizontal grain and an Osmo ﬁnish, giving a bright and modern feel. Her deck saloon and triple seascape windows mean she has plenty of natural light and ventilation below decks. As you might expect Briviba is fully equipped with microwave, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, upgraded bow and stern thrusters, air conditioning, watermaker, and full navigational and entertainment packages.
Briviba was launched in 2015 and was originally speciﬁed for the Oyster World Rally. The owner’s plans changed, and she was sold in 2016 to the current owner. Briviba presents beautifully and represents a wonderful opportunity to purchase a lightly used 575 with lifting keel.
Early viewing is highly recommended.
