Broker's Comments

This is a boat for the serious yachtsman. We have photos of her in Thailand and other points in the Indian Ocean. There is no better testament to the seaworthiness of this boat than to examine her sailing log!

Originally built as a racer/cruiser this yacht has excellent upwind performance. Her interior is voluminous and laid out to accommodate many comfortable nights at sea. If you are looking for a yacht to sail as opposed to one that lives in the marina then this is it.

She was re-engined in 2012 with a re-conditioned Volvo Penta which has only 50 hours on the clock. Her current owners are sailors!

This Oyster 43 Racer Cruiser has been personally photographed and viewed by John & Lynda of Boatshed Gibraltar. Click here for contact details.
