The Oyster 575 was designed by Rob Humphreys and the Oyster Design Team to replace the Oyster 56, which had been our most popular model with 75 launched. Built on owners feedback on the 56, the 575 was designed and engineered as a direct replacement – a long range, ocean going, bluewater cruiser and liveaboard, which can be easily handled by a couple.
Overall the 575 is a little longer than the 56, with a longer waterline length, deeper keel, increased sail area and fuel tankage. She feels like a ‘bigger’ yacht, with more headroom and a beam that is carried further aft, enhancing offwind performance and allowing a more spacious owner’s stateroom.The biggest upgrade, though, was reserved for the cockpit, which now features twin wheels, a centreline walkway aft, and distinct working and relaxing areas.
Oyster’s fifth generation deck saloon design gives the 575 an attractive profile at sea. She is well mannered and reassuring, comfortable in all conditions, and with a turn of speed that will keep the most demanding helmsman fully engaged. The first 575 was launched in 2010, and the last one, the 44th to be built, was launched in 2019. The 575 is a proven circumnavigator and consummate ocean cruiser and has only left the Oyster line up recently to be replaced by the new Oyster 565.
White Chocolate was launched in 2012 and is still in her original ownership. She has been specified for short-handed sailing with hydraulic push button in-mast furling to her mainsail, and hydraulic furling to her genoa.
Quarter sawn teak joinery below decks give a feeling of space and luxury, where she sleeps up to seven in four cabins. The fourth cabin being a single cabin/workshop with a workbench top and ample storage.
Light use, and a careful owner make White Chocolate fully worthy of consideration, if you are looking for a 575.
