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.

  • 2007 Oyster LD43
  • Year:

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.
