WHAT WE SAY

Broker's comments

The 56 was the first Oyster design to be drawn for us by Rob Humphreys, beginning a partnership that continues to this day. The 56 is perhaps the quintessential Oyster design and was the undisputed class leader at this size for more than a decade.

Rob certainly got it right first time – the 56 is currently our bestselling model, with seventy-five launched between 1998 and 2010.

The key to her success is her size; large enough for rapid ocean cruising, and to accommodate her crew in comfort and style when living aboard, but also compact enough to be handled by a couple without crew.

The 56 retained earlier successful Oyster design features; the single skin hull construction, with stiffness provided by mas-sive ribs and stringers, the keel stepped mast, and the full-length rudder skeg protecting the entire rudder. The 56 was also the first yacht to gain from an ergonomically designed cockpit, Oyster worked with Loughborough University to design a space which makes relaxing and entertaining a true pleasure, whilst maintaining all the essential qualities you would expect of a serious oceangoing yacht.

The 56 is a proven performer, with many ocean crossing and circumnavigations to her credit. She is has had class wins in the ARC and has also won Cruising Class 1 at Antigua Sailing Week, beating a number of more serious racing yachts. She is a superb sea boat and remains very well regarded by all her fortunate owners. Chantana is a 2003 Oyster 56 and is in her second ownership. She is easy to handle with hydraulic push button furling to her mainsail, genoa and staysail, all controlled from the cockpit. She sleeps seven in four cabins, and her interior joinery is finished in light oak, giving an open and modern feel.

Well cared for, and ready to go sailing again, Chantana has benefitted from good maintenance and constant upgrades which include a new generator.
