Overview

Oyster 625

Guaranteed to turn heads wherever she goes

The triple award winning Oyster 625 is designed to bring some significant improvements to the already successful pedigree of the Oyster 61 and 62. A new hull design by Humphreys Yacht Design with increased performance and handling, options for a sportier rig, several interior layout options and increased space in the master cabin by utilising the fuller aft sections are just some of the enhancements we’re launching with this new design.

Designed for comfortable live-aboard family and friends sailing, the 625 interior options also allow for a forepeak layout to be set out for a full-time crew member. The main areas in the yacht feature two forward cabins, each with its own heads and shower, a spacious owners suite and a fourth cabin that can be configured as a workshop, guest cabin or a children’s cabin with access from the master cabin.

There is an option of a sliding companionway access from the master cabin to the aft deck or owners may prefer to keep the aft deck uncluttered giving a 2m by 2.2m leisure area. The cleaner, more modern bulwark profile, with its integral stanchions and mooring cleats, creates spacious, uncluttered side decks, whilst the smoother, flush lines of her foredeck produces more deck space than the Oyster 62. There is also the option of three large vertical portlights in the hull, to port and starboard, to further enhance the views out from the saloon giving this new Oyster real superyacht quality.

With an overall length of just under 19.4m (63.5ft) including pulpit, the Oyster 625 supports options of cutter rig, double headsail and in-mast furling. A displacement length ratio of 182 and a sail area displacement ratio of 22.3 deliver sparkling performance for comfortable passage making. The striking new Oyster 625 is guaranteed to turn heads wherever she goes.
