Denoting a sleek evolution of Oyster’s signature bluewater cruising yachts, the Oyster 745 is designed to fit between the ‘family and friends’ Oyster 565 – 675 and the Oyster 885 with their separate crew quarters.
Replacing the highly successful Oyster 72/725, of which an impressive 17 were built, the Oyster 745 introduces a new hull, twin rudder format and brings a sense of the sailing coupé with her distinctive Deck Saloon, extended in clean symmetry with a sheerline that points to power and adventure.
With a choice of rigs, the sail plan can be optimised for fully-crewed regatta speed or kept smaller for short-handed sailing; from carbon rigs and fully battened mainsails to cutter and joystick furling for friends and family sailing. The enabler behind this versatility is Oyster’s new twin rudder hull configuration from naval architect Rob Humphreys; Oyster and Humphreys Yacht Design are the first ever to have so extensively researched and tank-tested this arrangement solely for performance cruisers and offshore sailboat.
