Building upon his experience with his earlier Oyster 56 and 53 designs, Rob Humphreys was given a straightforward design brief - to draw a yacht of just under fifty feet with three cabins, whilst offering outstanding performance and a generous load carrying capacity for bluewater cruising.

Compared to the Holman and Pye designed 485 which she replaced, the 49 is a much ‘bigger’ yacht, with greatly enhanced interior volume, a longer waterline, increased sail area and displacement, all of which combine to give great confidence in all sea and weather conditions.

We launched fifteen examples between 2001 and 2007, so the 49 remains a rarity on the brokerage market. Nonetheless she is an excellent proposition for those whose cruising areas are better suited to a yacht of less than fifty feet, or those who prefer the simpler handling and lower maintenance costs of this size of yacht.

Jam has had two owners since launch, the current owner has been cruising the Mediterranean since buying her in 2013. She has simple rig with in-mast furling to the mainsail, and double headsails, a working genoa on the inner forestay and a reacher on the outer one, providing a versatile and easily handled sailplan. Lovely teak interior joinery gives a luxurious feel below decks, where she sleeps six in three cabins. Well equipped and well cared for, Jam is a fine bluewater cruising yacht.
