This Mayfly Classic Oystercatcher is very well presented, the Oystercatcher has been well maintained and wintered ashore. She is lying here at our yard for ease of viewing. Internal photographs will be availble very soon.
Owners' comments: The Oystercatcher 16 is a gaff-rigged, trailerable, pocket cruiser. The design was based on the traditional oyster-dredging boats of the Falmouth area. This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of these delightful boats, as only 10 were ever built. We have owned Florence since 2006, and have enjoyed sailing her tremendously. She is a well-balanced, but exciting boat to sail, as well as being exceptionally pretty, always attracting interest and praise. The Oystercatcher 16 was built with great attention to detail, and has a comfortable and cosy cabin. The high-volume hull and generous bowsprit give the impression of a much bigger boat than her 16 ft would suggest. Since we have owned her, Florence has been moored on the Exe estuary at Topsham, wintered ashore, and regularly maintained, including a full annual engine service (most recently in October 2015). The mainsail, jib and staysail were replaced in 2014. She has a purpose-built road trailer and launching dolly.
