'Avalon' is a 1985 Oyster 435 Cutter-Ketch Center Cockpit. She's a one-owner boat, custom-built by Oyster Yachts in the UK and sailed to the States on her own bottom in 1985. She represented Oyster at the boat shows and was one of their 'feature boats' in marketing materials for the company.  She's largely an original boat, down to her sails and teak decks.  

'Avalon' represents a unique cruising platform for the sailor not looking to spend lots to experience the cruising lifestyle. Call for an appointment to see the opportunity that Avalon represents.
