Oyster Newport, Rhode Island, USA
Proteus is the most fully equipped and luxuriously appointed 655 ever built. The original specification included over $1 million in extras, resulting in an Oyster like never before. The Aurora gold metallic hull, mast boom and pedestals ensure that Proteus receives envious glances wherever she goes. She simply looks stunning. Custom deck gear by Harken together with a Hall Spars carbon mast and boom plus new carbon sails from Doyle and Quantum are just some of the high performance additions that make sailing this yacht exciting.
Proteus is equipped with a shoal draft enabling her to access anchorages normally unavailable. She was built to MCA Class 2 for additional safety and for ease of charter. Extra hull insulation plus an Eberspacher heating system allows Proteus to be used for high latitude sailing while her high capacity air conditioning units also allow for extended cruising in hot climates. Proteus has it all.
Impeccably maintained, Proteus has won no less than three Concours d'Elegance plus she was sailed to a superb second in class in the prestigious Hamilton Island Race Week. Performance as well as stunning looks.
Early viewing recommended.
