This Oyster is a fine example of an ocean going ketch, spacious and sea-kindly, powerful but easily handled by short handed crew.
A big, safe, seaworthy cruising yacht with a high volume hull and generous accommodation plan. She is a proven circumnavigator, and like most Oysters the HP46 is a hand built, semi custom design. The large saloon windows allowed light to flood into the accommodation,
In need of a small amount of TLC to return her to her former glory.
