The second Oyster model designed by Rob Humphreys, the 53 is the little sister to the hugely successful Oyster 56, and an outstanding success in its own right, with fifty-two launched between 1999 and 2008.
Renowned for being fast, well balanced, superb in poor weather and simple to handle, the 53, and in particular Ostra A is a fantastic Oyster that we are delighted to offer on our brokerage fleet.
Ostra A, 53-23, launched in 2003, is a great example of a yacht that has been configured to deliver. Featuring an upgraded GTI Formula Yacht Spars carbon mast with stainless steel rigging, carbon furlerboom, manual furling headsail with removable inner forestay, spinnaker and jockey pole, and hydraulic backstay tensioners, all of which are complimented by electric primary, mainsheet and halyard winches. Ostra A is equipped to deliver great all-round performance, including regatta success, without compromising on the benefits of her being a fantastic short-handed bluewater cruiser.
Below decks Ostra A offers great versatility and potential capability for long distance cruising with four spacious cabins, the fourth featuring a convenient single cabin/workshop. Despite being the smallest Oyster with a four cabin layout, the fully equipped galley, and spacious entertaining space makes Ostra A feel much bigger than her size. Beautifully appointed in teak with neutral palette tones throughout, she is adaptable and equipped for anything.
Recently upgraded with the mast being unstepped and serviced, installation of a complete new navigation and communications suite, new batteries and battery management system, engine and generator servicing, hydraulic passerelle, and recent underwater works including antifouling and necessary seacock replacement, Ostra A is a great offering that is definitely worth viewing.
