Overview

Oyster 545

The ideal combination of performance and comfort

The Oyster 545 has been developed from the Oyster 54 with several specification and styling upgrades. Her deck features all flush hatches, and interior has been subtly redesigned and styled.

Her clean hull lines, powerful rig and a low centre of gravity bulb keel have created a fast, stiff, comfortable passage maker, which has been regularly proven at Oyster Regattas. While good performance is important, the 545 offers cruising comfort with a generously proportioned cockpit fitted with a substantial fixed table.

The Oyster 545’s three-cabin cabin layout, combined with a long waterline length, generous beam and headroom create a spacious, light and airy living area.
The hull meets the deck via a modern superyacht styled rollover bulwark, which gives a clean contemporary look to the yacht and a sleek curved deck saloon style gives the yacht a stunning outboard profile from any angle.
