Broker’s Comments

The Oyster 46’ is a compact blue water yacht that is beautifully built and which offers powerful and safe cruising.   SCARCITY was very highly specified by her first owner for extensive cruising.   Although little used she needed considerable review and update when this owner purchased her in 2011.  All needed works were completed, plus further upgrades, and she is offered in sparkling good shape.  Below is a list of the main works undertaken –

  • Repainting of the topsides in Awlgrip Royal Blue.
  • Fitting of Harken electric furling on the forestay.
  • Staysail and furler.
  • Fitting of a HEM watermaker.
  • Conversion of the manual WCs to fresh water electric quiet flush.
  • Fitting of a GS Composites carbon passerelle.
  • Complete upgrade of the yacht’s electronics and sound package.
  • New deck canvas, sprayhood, bimini and cockpit cushions.
  • New sails by Quantum.
  • Replacement of the running rigging.
  • Fitting of WiFi/3G routers and electronics and antennas.
  • Fitting of Featherstream 4 bladed feathering propeller.
  • Fitting of Inmarsat Sat telephone including exterior dome.
  • Deck shower at transom, with mixer tap.
  • Chain counter.

Owner’s Comments

I bought SCARCITY in 2011 in Palma de Mallorca. She was hardly used by her first owner but neglected. I instructed a full review of the yacht and she was brought back into excellent order over a period of two years.  I took the view that the yacht was of the highest quality so I spent what was needed to not merely upgrade but also improve considerably.
