As the smallest of the range designed by Holman and Pye and built by Oyster Marine, she enjoys every bit of the construction and fit out that you would expect in the larger Oysters. A hugely capable yacht with a fantastic lengthy rear cockpit and an interior that feels much grander that her LOA would suggest.
Lightly used in our 12 year ownership, the yacht has only been locally sailed. We have enjoyed her immensely; she is a joy to sail with only two people and an extremely comfortable yacht to spend time aboard. With limited time to use her she is more boat than we currently require so with a degree of reluctance we have decided it is time to sell.
Yachting Monthly Conclusions from May 1997 Boat Test
This is every inch a real Oyster, from the understated elegance of the interior to the bluff, powerful bow and the conservative, easily handled rig. She becomes a valuable addition to a deservedly popular range and will undoubtedly allow even more people to enjoy cruising the world’s oceans in comfort and safety.
With a hull and deck by long established Oyster designers Holman and Pye the Oyster 42 is the first aft cockpit Oyster for more than a decade.
A lot of time and effort went into the deck design to ensure a sweet profile plus a safe deep cockpit without the inconvenience of a bridge deck. Below decks the layout is very spacious and the joinery detail and cabinetwork is to the same high standards as all of her larger sisters in the Oyster range.
What the Press say
‘The 42's natural advantage starts with the fact that her cockpit is well laid out. Add to this the positive and direct action of the helm, and her well balanced feel under sail, and you have a sweet, well behaved yacht which is a doddle to handle.’ Yachting World
‘The whole interior has a satisfying feeling of quality.’ Yachting Monthly
