OYSTER 495 - A new 50 foot bluewater sailing yacht

27 February 2021
OYSTER YACHTS,

A NEW BLUE WATER BENCHMARK
Elegantly-built from stem to stern the Oyster 495 is an Oyster through and through. She is designed to offer a stunning combination of performance, comfort and style, with seamanlike qualities in equal measure. Built by some of Britain’s finest craftsmen, she combines modern styling, creative detailing and a host of practical seamanlike features not normally seen in a 50 foot yacht for sale. Relaxing on deck and luxurious below, the new Oyster 495 promises to set a new standard for bluewater cruising yachts of her size. By refining proven design concepts, this 50 foot sailboat promises exceptional performance while being comfortable and easy to handle for a family crew. Hosting a dinner party for friends, exploring coastal waters, crossing oceans or even circumnavigating the globe, no other 50 foot yacht offers such limitless potential.

RESPONSIVE AND REWARDING PERFORMANCE
The latest collaboration between Humphreys Yacht Design and Oyster’s own in-house design studio, the new Oyster 495 has clean hull lines and carries her beam well aft, which contributes to form stability and sailing performance. This 50 foot sailboat features the same twin rudder configurations found on our larger yachts. Applying the same approach will make her light and easy on the steering, offering fingertip control in even the most boisterous conditions. Add a range of technology to make shorthanded sailing even easier, including in-mast furling and push-button B&G sail handling controls operated from the helm positions, she will be a joy to sail. All these elements combined will make her responsive and fast-moving, with an ability to offer consistently high speeds for excellent passage-making.

SPACE TO RELAX, SPACE TO SHARE
The wider beam offers excellent returns in space above and below decks, unexpected on any other 50 foot yacht for sale. Chief amongst these is the truly impressive owners’ cabin, with signature triple Oyster Seascape windows that create an amazing feeling of light and space. Like all Oysters, she features a beautifully styled centre cockpit and deck saloon, with a flush foredeck. This instantly-recognisable Oyster design icon is at the heart of all our yachts. It offers outstanding light and ventilation to the centre of the boat, making the saloon feel bright and spacious.
The deck saloon windows have been extended aft, emphasising the Oyster ‘snarl’ and flooding more light into the navigation and galley areas. On deck, the stern of the Oyster 495 shows just how much thought has gone into every aspect of her design. The transom houses a neat, powered bathing platform, which is pushbutton-operated from the deck. The perfect spot for fun with the family, it is also extremely practical for boarding and departing your tender. The stern deck’s flat design for comfortable sunbathing and the flush foredeck offers plenty of space for more of the same.
