“Make it fast and comfortable” – this was the request to Oyster Yachts from an experienced Owner who had built more than a thousand yachts, and the understated elegance and high performance of sailing charter yacht TWILIGHT was the result.
Since her launch in 2013 S/Y TWILIGHT has been cruising through the Caribbean & Bahamas and the Mediterranean yacht charter grounds, where she will be available for the summer of 2020. Her naval architecture and exterior styling come from Dubois while the interiors are by Rhoades Young – both prestigious names in the yacht building industry. The result is an efficient, beautifully laid out sailing yacht for discovering a region in detail.
Everyday outdoor living
There is an abundance of outdoor space aboard this OYSTER 125 FLY model sailing yacht and one of the highlights is a fold-down transom door which becomes a massive swim platform for sunbathing, transfers between the tender and access to the sea via a ladder. The main deck aft has room along the stern for sun loungers in addition to the C-shaped sofa/sunbed placed in the sunshine, and a canvas shade can be placed over the section for all-day outdoor use. Beneath the flybridge overhang two comfortable sofas surround an alfresco dining table, and the flybridge itself has a casual layout placing seating around a coffee table for guests to savour drinks and the view together.
Contemporary living areas
The understated interiors offer clean and bright contemporary surroundings for a home away from home that will feel just as inviting to visitors as those living aboard: The above-deck lounge treats guests to a lounge setting along the starboard side to seat all eight guests plus additional visitors, a formal dining area to port and a wet bar to starboard placed to serve guests inside and out. 360 degree windows flood the interior with natural light and at night the group can view a canopy of stars from the climate-controlled surroundings. The lower deck lounge has a cosy ambience ideal for winding down in the evening with a film or reading material, and the desk creates a place for students to keep up their studies or business owners to keep things running while away from the office.
The accommodation layout is designed with privacy in mind and provides guests with everything they need for time to themselves in addition to the sensational shared guest areas. The 4 large en-suite cabins to sleep up to 8 guests: 1 Master suite, 2 double cabins and 1 twin cabin. The Master suite to the stern can be accessed directly from the swim platform and makes use of the full beam to give its occupants a king-sized bed, a widescreen TV, a sofa and a desk/vanity in addition to plenty of storage space and an en-suite bathroom with two sinks, a toilet and shower.
The two double cabins are also generous in size and come furnished with a sofa in addition to the double bed, widescreen TV, storage and en-suite facilities. The twin cabin might seem cosy in comparison without a sofa, but it is still a comfortable space for adults and children alike and is finished to the same high quality, with a widescreen TV for entertainment, plenty of wardrobe space and an en-suite bathroom.
All-ages water toys
This 38.1m/125.2ft sailing yacht has a great collection of water toys on board designed for destinations the world over, and the two paddleboards let a couple explore along the coast together while the snorkelling equipment will give guests a window into the watery world below. Water skis, a wakeboard and a three-person tow-ring can be hooked up to the tender for a rush of excitement among the beautiful blues in Croatia and Greece’s Ionian Islands. When guests want to sit back, relax and take their time to admire the view, they can cast out a line and use the fishing gear to catch lunch or dinner for a delicious meal freshly prepared by S/Y TWILIGHT’s professional chef.
Whether you’re exploring the incredible beaches and towns of the Balearic Islands, the verdant shores of the volcanic Aeolian Islands or the eastern delights of Croatia and Greece, sailing yacht TWILIGHT grants guests the performance and stability that they are looking for combined with a dedicated and experienced crew to make every day a treasured experience.
