a fast cruising yacht with winning ways

The new Oyster 725 is a stunning development of the well-proven Oyster 72, with many new features, including triple ‘seascape’ vertical hull windows in the saloon and a clear, flush aft deck, both features recently introduced on the new Oyster 625 to great acclaim.

She is conceived from the outset to blend the live-aboard and seamanlike qualities of a typical Oyster within a design where high performance is also considered a priority. The Oyster 725 is built using modern composite engineering, producing a hull and deck that are both light and stiff, without compromising the strength, durability and ease of handling for which Oyster yachts are so well known.

The new Oyster 725 has one of our sleekest deck and cockpit designs ever, with her rolled edge side decks, flush deck hatches and fittings, transom stairwell and a host of ‘superyacht’ features. Below decks her interior joinery styling, fixtures and fittings have undergone a subtle yet comprehensive transformation, giving her a modern and contemporary feel.

Most owners in this size range will appreciate the advantages of separating the crew and galley from the owner’s and guest accommodation, a proven configuration that works really well on the 725 with no compromises. The well-appointed owners’ suite, together with double and twin guest cabins aft, provides luxurious accommodation for family and friends, whilst the living area forward of the galley can be configured with two ensuite cabins or as a VIP guest suite. The Oyster 725s spacious, light and airy saloon, with its great outboard vista through the vertical hull windows, complements the large cockpit, which is perfect for alfresco dining, whilst her vast aft deck is a wonderful area for sun worshippers, entertaining and partying.

The standard layout makes best use of space on board the 725, but we are always pleased to configure a custom layout to best match an owner’s individual needs and priorities.
