63' Oyster 62
The Oyster 62 is without doubt one of the finest cruising yachts ever designed.
Elegant, fast, responsive and comfortable she has all of the attributes desired by the discerning cruising yachtsman.
Easily capable of 200 miles a day in supreme comfort the Oyster 62 has a competitive pedigree to match her beautifully drawn lines, with many successes in ocean races and regattas. An Oyster 62 won her class in the ARC and was first to finish in all cruising classes with 178 yachts trailing in her wake, averaging 10 knots over 1900 miles and subsequently winning all five races in cruising class 1 at Antigua race week.
Whilst undoubtedly fast, this Humphreys designed yacht is also easy to sail and can claim to have one of the safest and most family friendly cockpits in her class. 62’s have circumnavigated with young families on board or have sailed to the Arctic reaching 80 degrees north.
The Oyster 62 offers the perfect package of speed, elegance, luxury and easy safe comfortable cruising and we are pleased to list one of the finest examples.
Owned by a knowledgeable and meticulous yachtsman, IXION has been professionally maintained and has had attention and care of the highest order lavished upon her. She has nine berths in five cabins excluding the saloon and benefits from two extensive re-fits (2010 and 2011) under the watchful and expert eyes of SYS and the Rigshop at Saxon Wharf Southampton, including a full mast down rig check, mast painting and all required upgrades.
Now based in the Mediterranean she is in fine condition and this beautifully performing yacht which won the Antigua Concours d’Elegance is now fully upgraded with recent additions including a completely new entertainment system, new electronics and a new 17.5 kw Onan Genset system.
