With the new sailing season beckoning, this excellent Oyster 655 ROCK OYSTER is the perfect choice for those looking for a family cruising yacht. She is lying Palma de Mallorca, but ready to take you anywhere. For those who may wish to operate her with crew and recoup some costs, she could charter, as she also benefits from a MECAL “small commercial sailing vessel” certificate category 2 – valid to October 2023.
Her full specification is available here – https://www.berthoninternational.com/yacht-sales-brokerage/yachts-for-sale/oyster-655-rock-oyster/
Built in 2009, she was substantially refitted and upgraded 2018. With further service and maintenance 2019. In spring 2021, our very own Berthon Spain service team in Palma have recently completed the following works:
Other than a haul out for survey and fresh antifouling, this is a yacht “ready to go”.
With her “high performance bulb” keel (3.2m draft) and her carbon mast she offers a better sailing experience than most Oysters of her size and model and yet is just as easily handled – or even more so.
The original asking price was £1.3M. Only recently did the owner decide that £995,000 VAT paid was a better offering. The owners are keen to move on and hence she is also a good buy. It is worth noting that we were informed the yacht was £3.2M new.

The list of updates is long, but includes:
In addition, endless other constant upgrades to equipment and fittings have been on going. For example – all pumps in the cabins are the new quiet models; new VHF 2018; new mirrors in all bathrooms; sprayhood replaced; mooring lines; 3 x seacocks replaced 2019… and more.
On deck she has, in-mast hydraulic mainsail furling, hydraulic furling headsail, electric powered winches all allowing push-button sailing. Below deck, the cherry wood interior offers a flexible layout – suited to operation with crew or without.
Sail stowage and fo’c’sle forward. Access aft to the starboard guest head / shower area (or up through the deck). Double berth VIP cabin starboard with the en-suite. Twin cabin to port with lower berth (that may be a double or a single), a Pullman bed above, and a clever set up that allows the berths to form a settee and with a doorway through the partition bulkhead to the starboard cabin thus providing a “suite”. The port cabin has an adjoining head / shower that also serves as a day head. Next aft is the lovely bright airy saloon. Galley aft and down a level to port and the chart area to starboard. Passage aft (with twin cabin outboard and engine room inboard) to the aft cabin – island bed, seating (can also form a passage berth), vanity / desk unit, lots of storage, aft ladder to deck and of course a good ensuite shower and head area.
