Description

AMBROSIA is a beautiful, 2006 Oyster 56 Deck Salon.  She has been professional maintained since new.  Her Awlgripped Carinthia Blue topsides, low hours and recent upgrades make her a refreshing and outstanding offering. Her cutter rig and in-mast furling provide easy handling and comfortable cruising. Further, with control lines within easy reach of the helmsman, AMBROSIA is ideally set up for simple and safe shorthanded sailing.

Below decks, AMBROSIA has the preferred varnished-cherry joinery with gloss-varnished teak soles, plus the acclaimed stowage and well-appointed accommodations for which the Oyster 56’s are well known and that few other boat of her size provide. In short, she’s a ‘must see’ boat for anyone looking for the best of Oyster 56’s.
