The World Premiere of the Oyster 495 will visit 11 cities around the world, starting in London, 21 to 24 April, at St Katharine Docks.
The Oyster 495 has been heralded as setting a new bluewater benchmark and is anticipated as a game changer for luxury, custom built cruising yachts.
From London, the Oyster 495 will set off on her maiden voyage to Oslo, and then on to Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Southampton, Barcelona, Cannes, Palma, Miami and then Sydney.
“The Private View concept has been very successful for us, especially over the past couple of years. The World Premiere further develops this concept and, importantly, takes us direct to our clients,” comments Stephen Parkinson, Oyster Sales Director, Rest of World.
“Each stopover event will be managed by our Sales Team and guests will be able to explore this ground-breaking boat in safety and in their own time.”
The 495 is a collaboration between Humphreys Yacht Design and Oyster’s own in-house design studio, overseen by Oyster’s CEO & owner Richard Hadida and Oyster’s founder Richard Matthews.
This experienced team have produced their best work to date, creating this remarkable new Oyster. The powerful G6 twin rudder hull form delivers true performance cruising and clean lines.
The beam is set well aft, contributing form, stability, and great sailing performance, making the Oyster 495 a true live aboard, go-anywhere bluewater yacht, designed to be sailed shorthanded.
Hand-built with Oyster’s thoroughbred bluewater DNA running through her from bow to stern, the 495 offers many of the exceptional features found on the luxury boat builder’s larger yachts, making her unique amongst her peers. Easily handled by a couple or family, she is equally at home on coastal cruising trips, crossing an ocean or even circumnavigating the globe.
