Broker's Comments

Designed by Stephen Jones and built to exacting standards, these swift and spacious yachts have proven themselves to be race winners. This includes five firsts in Cowes Week, RORC Yacht of the year 1985, The Alan Paul Trophy for consistent performance and a class win in the 1985 Fastnet Race. Even by todays standards, the Oyster 41 is a very fast sailing yacht and could still hold it’s own in ORC/IRC regattas.

The accommodation, with it’s smart dark wood finish, has acres of room, plenty of headroom and berths for eight. There’s a full size nav table, a large practical galley and a massive storage / lazarette locker accessible from both the aft cabin & cockpit. Although there is a fairly basic layout at the moment, this could be made into a great family living space. The forward cabin which is currently used for storage could also be converted into further accommodation if required.

If you want a yacht to win races or to make swift passage in comfort to your favourite destinations, this vessel is definitely worth consideration. There is a lot of quality yacht here at a good price.
