A lovely example of these thoroughbred performance Cruisers, built to sail the World with impressive mile-munching capabilities.The Holman and Pye design was the pre-curser to the Oyster 37, and "Illusion" demonstrates all the hallmarks of the brands Heritage. She has been lovingly maintained and constantly upgraded by her current owner, who has cruised over 20,000 miles proving both her seaworthiness and performance. She won her class in the 2007 AZAB race, during which she secured a 2nd overall in the outward leg then 1st overall on the return leg.
Now ashore at Swanwick Marina, Southampton, she really needs to be seen to be appreciated.
