Immensely capable Oyster 42, PRIME NUMBER caught on film

September 13, 2019


From 1999, this is one of only seven examples of the Oyster 42. The baby of the range – designed by Holman and Pye and built by Oyster Marine, she displays all the characteristics of construction and quality of fit out found in the larger Oysters.

Watch the movie here –

An immensely capable offshore yacht, with a fantastic lengthy rear cockpit and an interior that feels much grander than her LOA would suggest. The saloon and owners cabin befitting of a much larger yacht. Equally at home plying the south coast or more adventurous bluewater sailing.

In her second ownership, for 12 years the yacht has been lightly used for local cruising. Well maintained with some notable recent updates, well presented and realistically priced she is fine yacht for a modest asking price.

Full specification available here –

The 42’s natural advantage starts with the fact that her cockpit is well laid out. Add to this the positive and direct action of the helm, and her well balanced feel under sail, and you have a sweet, well behaved yacht which is a doddle to handle.Yachting World

The whole interior has a satisfying feeling of quality.Yachting Monthly
