This groundbreaking project, along with a pipeline of three Oyster 825s, two Oyster 745s and two “Raised Deck” versions of the Oyster 885, resulted in the company currently expanding its team in Southampton by 25%.

David Tydeman, Oyster CEO, said: “These all emphasise how we listen to our owners and respond to their needs.  In parallel with the strong order book for Oyster yachts, our custom and refit business goes from strength to strength and we completed a significant refit of “Cambria” – the beautiful 1928 built ~140ft (with bowsprit!) Fife Classic – in the autumn and we are now 70% through a detailed refurbishment of the Farr designed, UK built “Sojana” – a wonderful Carbon/Titanium lightweight 115ft ketch. These two projects, together with the new 118ft Oyster, are a great example of the versatility of Oyster in the Superyacht market.”
