Oyster Yachts in the UK has revealed details of hull #1 of its new Oyster 675, a new 21m sailing yacht. The new model joins the latest Coupé range and follows the concept introduced in 2013 with the 23m Oyster 745.

Early in January, her deck was fitted by the staff at the Wroxham yard in Norfolk and she is now ready for bonding.

The yacht features a twin rudder hull by Humphreys Yacht Design and it’s configured and engineered to take a more powerful rig plan than the smaller yachts, with options for carbon masts and rigging and performance sails.

Multiple choices

The new Oyster 675 offers two layout choices based around either the open-plan, linear galley or an enclosed, efficient and seaworthy galley just aft of the main saloon.

The layout includes two spacious double guest en-suite cabins complementing the full beam master suite and a fourth cabin for crew with options for en-suite facilities.

Oyster says there is also a choice of rigs, choice of windows and an extended transom version and with either the swinging centreboard or standard keel.

The first Oyster 675 is due for launch later in 2016.

In other news, Oyster will be presenting the Oyster 575 at the Düsseldorf show from 23-31 January 2016. Forty Oyster 575s have been sold since the design’s launch in 2010.
