Meanwhile, if you are looking to browse Oyster sailing yachts for sale in Newport and join our Family, you’ve come to the right place.

With just four full-time employees, Oyster Yachts Newport is a lean and efficient operation. This means that we know our clients extremely well, a key factor in our loyal customer base of around 140 owners.

Our most popular bluewater sailing yacht models are those in the 50-60ft range, such as our Oyster 565 and Oyster 595 new-build sailing yachts, as well as our pre-owned Oyster yachts, which have become the core of our Newport yachts for sale. The shoal draft options are also popular yachts for sale in Newport given the draft restrictions in some parts of the US east coast.

CASE STUDIES

A few examples of work recently completed by our Oyster Yachts Newport team.

Oyster 575 Spirit A Journey

Dick and Sue Hammill took delivery of their Oyster 575 Spirit in 2015 in the UK, fulfilling a 30-year dream. Several wonderful years were spent cruising in the company of friends and family. First in the Mediterranean, then crossing the Atlantic on the ARC. For the next two years Spirit voyaged extensively between the Caribbean and East Coast US and notably placed a first in class in the Oyster BVI Regatta 2017.

During periods of downtime Spirit was offered a few times through Oyster Charter. Now that Dick and Sue have fulfilled their dream, Spirit resides at Oyster Newport where she awaits her next owner.

Spirit is looked after by the Oyster Service Center and listed for sale through Oyster Brokerage.

For more information on Spirit’s adventures visit the owner’s blog www.theyachtspirit.com

 

As life long bareboat charterers, 2015 was a turning point in our lives as we stepped aboard the newest member of our family, Spirit. Like any good parent she was nurtured and cared for over the last three years not only by us as owners, but by incredibly competent crew couples and Oyster support people who made sure Spirit maintained her new commissioning day state until our last voyage from Ft Lauderdale to Newport.

It’s a very sad good bye for us, but the incredible memories of the voyages, the destinations, and the social experiences will stay with us for a lifetime. One incredible chapter in our blessed life.

Owners - Dick and Sue Hammill

 

Oyster 475 Hattie Fisher A Full Service

Tim Proctor has had the full experience that the Oyster Newport office offers. He purchased the boat from Dan Wurzbacher here in Newport. The boat was shipped over to Newport, where the final commissioning took place. Will White and a member of the Oyster commissioning team from the UK then sailed the boat over to Long Island for handover. We handed the boat over, did a few test sails and some training for the owner. Over the rest of that summer season, Will made several trips to Long Island to attend to the boat and sort out issues both warranty and owner requests. The following year, the owner relocated himself from Long Island to South Carolina. He then contracted Oyster to prep the boat for the summer season, and deliver it the 700 miles to it’s new home. The delivery was done and Will has since been back to attend to the boat there at the owner’s request.

The global reach of the Oyster support network certainly extends to the States making it possible to work through the build process entirely from the States.

From the hand over in the summer of 2017 until now I have been ably supported by the Newport office. I would be remiss if I did not recognize Will White who has never failed to be knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. No service requirement of mine, large or small, has gone unmet. From Sag Harbor, New York to Little River, South Carolina, Oyster’s Newport office has provided the timely, expert support that gives me that extra measure of confidence.
