Oyster Yachts has recently unveiled its latest project, the 27.12-metre sloop-rigged sailing yacht Oyster 895.
The British yard developed its new sailing yacht together with Rob Humphreys Yacht Design, drawing her lines from the same hull as the previous model Oyster 885.
Oyster 895 features a slightly longer length over all and a rearranged deck layout, while her 6.33-metre beam and 3.46-metre standard draught remained unaltered. What makes the Oyster 895 different from her sister yacht are the systems upgrades and a more centralised weight distribution, which will bring the yard’s 27-metre offering more in line with its flagship Oyster 118 series.
Oyster Yachts’ CEO David Tydeman so commented the changes from the previous model: “There are 20 major tooling pieces used to build the 885 and we’re only reusing four on the 895.”
The sailing yacht features a fold-out swim platform built into the transom, a tender storage space located on the foredeck and a C-shaped cockpit, ideal for enjoying life onboard.
The layout will be open to customisation, with a range of options available. The yacht will provide comfortable accommodation for up to eight guests across a full-beam owner’s cabin aft, two doubles and a twin cabins. In other layout options, the double cabins can be removed and replaced with additional lounge seating or a larger owner’s suite. A crew of up to four will be accommodated in two crew cabins located in the bow.
Oyster yachts are renowned for their bluewater sailing capabilities and this will be backed up by a new lower-revving 330hp Cummins QSL9 engine that will allow for economical cruising at nine knots and a maximum range of 3,000 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 3,500 litres.
