Broker's Comments

Designed by Holman and Pye to replace their legendary Oyster 435, the 45 did so with aplomb. With greatly enhanced interior volume, the 45 feels a lot more spacious, whilst retaining the Oyster rugged offshore trademarks of single-skin hull construction, keel-stepped mast, and full-length rudder skeg.

Free Mind is still in her original ownership, and has enjoyed relatively light use by her caring owner. She is the standard three-cabin layout, offering six berths in three cabins, with a further two sea berths possible in the saloon. Her handcrafted joinery is in the popular light oak, giving a bright and airy feel below decks. Her simple sloop rig with in-mast furling mainsail and furling genoa, all handled from the cockpit, make her easy to handle for the shorthanded crew.
