2014 Oyster 745
Elegant, Powerful and Individual
With tooling starting and set to launch in late 2015, the all new Oyster 745 denotes a sleek evolution of Oyster’s signature performance blue-water cruising yachts. Replacing the highly successful 72/725 with an impressive 16 built, the Oyster 745 is based on a new hull format and brings a sense of the sailing coupé with her distinctive deck saloon extended in clean symmetry with a sheerline that points to power and adventure.
With a choice of rigs, the sail plan can be optimised for speed or short-handed sailing, from carbon and fully battened main to cutter and joystick furling for friends and family sailing. The enabler behind this versatility is Oyster’s new twin-rudder hull configuration from naval architect Rob Humphreys. Oyster and Humphreys Yacht Design are the first ever to have so extensively researched and tank tested this arrangement solely for performance cruisers. The Oyster 885 and 825 are already proving the efficacy with reduced weather helm and higher pointing, increased form stability from the beamier stern sections, and an accompanying boost in off-wind, white sail performance from the bigger main and smaller headsail.
The sweeping, perfectly planked teak deck plan is uncluttered in contemporary vein yet totally practical. Line handling is all kept aft of the twin steering positions. The single point mainsheet can be single point or captive winched. And there is, of course, the Oyster-DNA standing-height lazarette and sail locker. For leisure a spacious.
