The Oyster 56 is one of the most successful yachts in Oyster's history with over 70 built to date. A world-class cruising yacht, the 56 was the first yacht with an ergonomically designed cockpit, the result of working with Loughborough University's Ergonomics department, making relaxing and entertaining a true pleasure, while maintaining all the essential qualities you expect of a serious seagoing yacht. Performance under power and sail is first class, demonstrated by the 56 easily winning her class in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers and also winning Cruising Class 1 at Antigua Sailing Week, beating a number of more serious racing competitors. The standard layout offers a choice of an en-suite owner?s stateroom aft with three guest cabins, or two guest cabins and a walk-in machinery room alongside the engine. Oyster 56Well proven over tens of thousands of ocean miles, many live aboard owners have confirmed, the Oyster 56 is easily handled with just two on board, while the yacht is spacious enough for six or even eight people to cruise in comfort.
