2007 Oyster LD43

The Oyster LD43 combines traditional craftsmanship, with modern design and technology, to create a unique blend of performance, sea keeping and comfort. The LD43 is about good times afloat, whether dining alfresco in the cockpit, having a candlelit dinner in the enclosed saloon or enjoying a cruise with family and friends. Modern composite construction with carbon fibre and Kevlar will create a strong light hull, optimised for us by Levi Designs and tank tested at the Wolfson Unit.

While conventional drives may be chosen, with her twin water jets the LD43 will top out at 30 plus knots - no worries about fouled props and the ability to go shallow or even dry out. Build quality and design flair, combined with great after sales support, create a boat that really will be what good times afloat are all about.
