Oyster Yachts 655

The Overview

The Oyster 655 may be one of the best-designed models Oyster has offered. It is a brute of a sailing yacht that is quick to get going, yet forgiving at sea. It fits a sweet spot where the balance of interior joinery to hull form seems just right, not loading the boat down like so many other yachts.

The 655 has a high freeboard which gives a dry ride at sea, and big interior volume. Below-decks it is spacious, with sleeping for eight owners and guests in four cabins, with a load-carrying capacity worthy of ‘round-the-world’ duty. On-deck the sail plan is powerful and easily operated by one person from the helm. The cockpit is large enough for eight guests to relax in while staying clear of the sail-handling duties underway. There is a large lazarette for gear and toy storage, as well as huge sail locker forward, accessed from deck.

GESTURE has been crew-maintained and well-cared-for since new. Recent updates include all new B&G Zeus Network, North 3Di sails and new dark blue canvas.

Inspection is highly recommended.
