Broker Description

The Oyster 56 is a world-class bluewater cruiser with a well-earned reputation in yachting circles as the gold standard in her class. She is by far the most successful design in Oyster’s four-decade plus history, with some seventy-five hulls built to order. If proven reliability, comfort, aesthetics, safety, seakindliness, the ability to handle the boat shorthanded and live-aboard for months at a time are priorities. the Oyster 56 is surely a stand out. Capable of voyaging across any ocean in style and comfort, the 56 is a spirited performer, yet carries enough volume to live comfortably for extended periods at sea. Designed for manageability and ease of use, Oyster 56s can be effortlessly handled by a savvy sailing couple, but have also been known to carry a professional hand as well. Several of the keys to her success are the flexible cabin layout, which features a forward island berth, offering VIP guests similar accommodations to the luxurious owner’s cabin aft; of course the signature Oyster raised salon windows; a large and ergonomically-designed cockpit, and gobs of storage space for all the necessary items required and desired for world voyaging. HARVEST MOON is an exceptional G5 Oyster 56. One of the last three hulls built, and delivered in 2010, she was commissioned by an experienced American cruising couple and therefore built to US specifications. Careful attention was paid to every detail, including: rich cherry crown-cut joinery; custom seating in the saloon; hand-sculpted companionway hand rails; a guest cabin with custom bi-fold doors with berthing that converts into a lounge. The list of options is thoughtful and the list of tools, spares and equipment - much of which was added to the boat in 2016/17 - is impressive. Though designed for ocean voyaging, HARVEST MOON has primarily been sailed on a seasonal basis with low machinery hours to show for it. She has always been professionally cared for by only two companies: Caribbean Yacht Management (Oyster’s Service Center in the BVI) and more recently The Hinckley Company in Portsmouth, RI. With all new electronics for Navigation and Communication and state-of-the-art B&G readouts for sailing instruments installed by Cay Electronics in 2017- HARVEST MOON wants for nothing. HARVEST MOON is berthed in the water and conveniently located at the Hinckley Company in Portsmouth, RI just up the road from Newport. She is recently back from a successful Caribbean season which her owners enjoyed immensely cruising from Grenada to St Thomas. This was a “bucket list” item which, now accomplished, has generated a turn of focus to other pursuits. Originally offered at $975K she is now seriously for sale and asking $895K. We invite your close inspection.
