    Oyster - 435

    A very special Oyster 435 commissioned in 1985. This particular Oyster 435 was the London Boat Show boat Oyster showpiece for 1985 and commissioned for Clare Francis the renowned yachtswoman and author.

    She has had a continuous programme of maintenance including re-furbished teak decks, coppercoated in 2014, professional hull respray in 2012, engine maintenance, and has a large inventory of equipment suitable for liveaboard or offshore sailing.
