CONSENSUS is a last of this world class cruising yacht from Oyster to launch, built at SYS. She has been skipper maintained from the beginning and she has been faultlessly maintained. Down below she is subtly furnished and her joinery is as it was on her date of launch. A very current and well tested example of this great yacht, she has been priced to sell.
CONSENSUS is in her second ownership. Her current owner has sailed her extensively from the UK to the Southern Hemisphere after which she shipped back to Europe and has since cruising in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. She will be cruising in the Eastern Mediterranean this summer.
During this ownership she has been substantially improved and updated including a full repaint of the rig and overhaul and improvement of all the main systems, new batteries, and a new sail wardrobe. She is offered for sale in full cruising trim.
Have a look at Oyster 72 CONSENSUS cruising in the South Pacific –
I purchased CONSENSUS in 2016 (she was launched in April 2012) expressly for the purpose of a trip from UK to New Zealand via The West Indies. I wanted a swift and comfortable yacht with that extra guest cabin and en suite for guests whilst en route. I bought new sails and recanvassed the entire yacht prior to departure, adding a heavy weight asymmetric for the long reaches across the Pacific. Pumps, batteries etc. were replaced in case. The mast and spars were pulled and repainted white at Berthon, The rod rigging was all tested electronically and found to be 100A1. After a season in the West Indies we transited the Canal and arrived in Auckland, without a scratch, a few months later. She performed beautifully often exceeding 200 mpd and was admired wherever we anchored. After a few weeks cruising NZ we shipped her back on a Dutch transport vessel along with other yachts returning to Europe. Sadly, she is now for sale as at the age of four score years I am considering the motor alternative! I wish the new owner many happy sea miles.
