It has been a great success for the Humphreys-designed Oyster 825 yacht MAEGAN at the recently concluded Superyacht Cup Palma 2015, marked by three days of thrilling racing in the lovely Palma yacht vacation location. Luxury sailing yacht MAEGAN has won her Class and finished second overall in the entire 21-yacht fleet.
Steered by owner Klaas Meertens with North Sails’ Jeremy Robinson calling tactics, superyacht MAEGAN was consistently fast and posted a 3-1-2 score. An entirely standard 825 in all but rig and sail choice, she was racing in what was numerically the biggest class, including yachts from Perini Navi, Nautor’s Swan, Royal Huisman, Alloy Yachts, as well as another all-new Oyster 885 superyacht Guardian Angel.
The podium position of MAEGAN yacht represents a milestone for Oyster Yachts, bearing in mind the quality of the fleet and profile of the event, and is a great demonstration of the way the Humphreys team is steadily refining the concept in line with the fairly open forum that is shared between Oyster’s CEO David Tydeman and Rob and Tom. Significantly, only one day stood between the regatta’s last day and the start of an intensive tank testing session on the new sailing yacht Oyster 118. For all three of them, all racing on MAEGAN superyacht, it was straight out of the heat of Palma to the contemplative environment of the towing tank, where further direction will be applied to the future of this prestigious brand.
