‘Karibu’ – A Swahili ‘welcome’ aboard.
Launched in 2013, Oyster 885-02 ‘Karibu’ is now offered for sale exclusively through Oyster Brokerage. Extensively detailed for an owner intent on both high performance and high-level comfort, ‘Karibu’ has cruised both the Mediterranean and Caribbean. She has never chartered though the boat is well set for this with MCA Class 2 certification. She is in exceptional condition.
The accommodation, themed in light limed-teak, savannah leathers and soft-white panelling, comprises three suites aft of the raised deck saloon with a fourth convertible cabin forward of the lower deck atrium with its navigation and control stations. Additional bunk can be mounted in the twin suite aft, elevating guest berthing. The enclosable crew accommodation forward provides excellent living quarters for up to five crew.
For efficient sailing, beyond the stylish single-point mainsheet, there’s a second concealed captive winch for main halyard hauling and quick reefing from the safety of the twin consoled cockpit. The towering, four-spreader, Hall carbon spar has higher spec discontinuous CSR (carbon standing rigging) with titanium.
Karibu underwent an extensive yard period in 2018. This included Full Mast service along with NDT testing, antifouling, anodes, headsail sheets, code zero Reckmann service. Other jobs included replacement battery chargers, safety gear service and all winches serviced.
Viewing is highly recommended.
