Lust List: The Oyster Blue Water Cruiser For Your Private Sailing Expeditions
The title of the world’s fastest cruiser is not an easy one to earn, considering the mechanical and technical triumphs required to surpass the competition. British luxury boat maker, Oyster Yachts, has leveraged on decades of experience to produce its fastest and sleekest sailboat yet, the Oyster 565. Measuring 59.3ft in length, it is the smallest of the brand’s newest generation of sailboats, which features sturdy hulls and customisable interior designs.
Specifically designed for a hassle-free owner-driver experience, the Oyster 565 comes equipped with a well‑balanced steering system and simple-powered sail handling. Perfect for a family or romantic getaway, this small expedition cruiser requires no additional crew on board. Not only does its twin rudders offer great maneuverability, the option to customise the body allows for easy shallow-water sailing. Because of its highly customisable hull, owners seeking to do long-distance cruising or participate in racing events can configure the yacht accordingly.

For the interiors, Oyster Yachts has collaborated with acclaimed yacht designer, Humphreys Yacht Design. This explains the strong design focus in the cabins, which ensures that owners sail in both style and comfort. As the large master bedroom can be converted into two double cabins, the yacht can easily house a total of six guests.
With the promise of a fuss-free, yet luxurious sailing experience on the high seas, it is no wonder the Oyster 565 is a hit among sailing enthusiasts. It also snagged the title of Best Luxury Cruiser at the Southampton International Boat Show 2017, Britain’s largest international yachting showcase, two years before its physical debut.
