An exciting addition to the Oyster fleet

The sleek and stylish new Oyster 825 Deck Saloon is an exciting addition to the range of new yachts launched by Oyster over the last two years. Available in both Deck Saloon and Raised Saloon versions through Oysters Custom and refit in Southampton, the new 825 features Oyster’s latest striking and contemporary styling, first seen with the highly successful Oyster 625. Clear deck lounging areas and larger hullports with ‘Seascape’ windows are among the features of this innovative new breed of Oyster yacht. With clean and easily driven hull lines drawn by Humphreys Yacht Design and detailed styling and engineering developed by the Oyster Design Team, the new Oyster 825 is sure to attract acclaim wherever she goes.

With nearly 15% more internal volume than her predecessor - the highly successful Oyster 82 (of which 17 have been built since 2002) - the Oyster Design Team has used this extra space to maximize the standard layout of the en-suite owner and guest accommodation in the three double cabins aft, whilst providing a clear separation of space for up to four professional crew to discreetly run the yacht and enable them to provide a ‘six star’ service for the owner and guests. With her large, full width saloon, the feeling of light and space below decks is further enhanced by the state-of the-art, side-sliding glass companionway.

Developing the latest interior styling now seen on the Oyster 625, 725 and 885, and building on the engineering knowledge gained from the Oyster Group’s successful development of the Oyster Superyachts, the new Oyster 825 provides “Superyacht experience” in levels of style and comfort for the owner who still enjoys sailing the yacht himself with family and friends yet wants the balance of supporting his sailing with professional crew.
