Elegant, powerful and individual.

Two meters longer than the Oyster 675, three shorter than the 825, the sleek-topped 22.7m Oyster 745, announced in 2013 and now fully in build, brings interesting new thinking and great new opportunity, drawing as she does on the particular experience of the 12 very varied 825s and 885s.

Through these 12 80-plus-footers there are very different expressions of layout and balance between owner, guest and crew requirements, adding into the mix up to three levels of saloon roof and floor, with apportionment of space, essentially based on six cabins, six heads for the 885, five cabins, five heads, for the 825 – a huge versatility within the strengthening Oyster approach of ‘say yes’ to owners requests.

Next in line, within the previous single rudder generation, was the 72/725 with five cabins, four heads. Beautiful lines and handling but with two guest cabins aft sharing heads and shower, and the forward guest cabin accessed via the crew and galley area, not everyone’s optimal solution. The key difference between the 725 and the 72 was the incorporation of the vertical, three-stripe Seascape windows into the same hull and floorplan initially at the request of one owner which was then picked up by others. The rebadging as the 725 was driven by the owners who wanted to enjoy the difference between their 725s and the successful 72s – from this partnership, three Oyster 725s have been built.

For the new Oyster 745, with a clean design slate, these issues have been swept aside, making way for a very spacious four cabin, four head layout by electing to have not three full cabins aft, just two with a very versatile side-space bridging the sleeping and living areas aft and the amidships, and also resolving private forward access by adopting the bigger 825’s successful walkway either side of the mast. With this, guests have one side forward, crew the other, and the galley/crew door can close the whole of that area.

Left open plan, it creates a great space for sitting and relaxing while pouring, even more, light and space into that aft guest deck, a convivial or quiet lower deck saloon with library or any level of AV equipment including 40in (100cm) deckhead fold- down television. Alternatively, it can be laundry and store or a bunked space for extra occasional berthing.

The evolution through design generations to the current wide beam aft and high freeboard has contributed to a leap in interior volume for this new, more open accommodation plan. Below the sheerline volume is a full 210m3, astonishingly just 20 less than the Oyster 82 which despite its three meters extra length measured 230m3.
