The Oyster 53 Deck Saloon is a perfect mix of luxury and pure Sailing Capability.

The 53 is one of the best selling Oyster models ever, combining the long waterline and spacious interior layout of a long range cruiser, but efficient enough to be sailed by a couple.

This particular model has been lovingly maintained by owners who have enjoyed extensive Cruising including the ARC Rally 2009 and ARC Europe 2010.


She has benefited from an extensive refit in March 2009 plus upgrades to the navigation systems, fitting of a new Bauer dive compressor, a new generator plus numerous other upgrades. She is in every sense ready to go bluewater cruising.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The design brief for the Oyster 53 was to create a yacht with a centre cockpit Deck Saloon configuration that offered many of the features of the larger Oyster 56, but still maintained a stylish, well-proportioned outboard profile. Rob Humphreys designed the hull, deck and rig, while Holman & Pye designed the interior layout and provided the technical and structural specification. The Oyster in-house team has coordinated the styling and overall details of the yacht, and as with the Oyster 36, they also integrated the ergonomically designed cockpit whose technical specification originated from the Department of Ergonomics at Loughborough University. This design team approach, linked with the use of powerful integrated CAD design computers, has created a yacht that will set standards in design excellence for a yacht of this size. For a 53-foot yacht, this Oyster is very unusual in offering a spacious cockpit and a large saloon, together with up to four separate sleeping cabins.
