The Oyster 45 is a well built, robust ocean cruiser with elegant lines, designed to be easily handled by a couple with spacious and comfortable accommodation below deck. They have a well-deserved reputation for being fun to sail and an ability to handle the worst conditions with impunity. This rare two cabin example offers luxurious accommodation for two couples, with extra berths for occasional guests. Carefully used and maintained to a very high standard from new, this is a really excellent example of these popular bluewater cruisers. We highly recommend viewing.
