Broker's comments

The Oyster 485 is a typical Holman and Pye design with low freeboard, a gentle sheerline, and balanced ends. She is a popular bluewater cruiser for those seeking a yacht under 50 feet. Her length allows for a separate shower in the owner’s head, and a dedicated generator space, just aft of the engine. Featuring a deck saloon in style with her three cabin layout, a centre cockpit, the 485 is a sleek and comfortable world cruising yacht, that is easily handled by a couple. For the owner she is the boat they were looking for and she delivered exactly what they wanted. A fantastic companion.
