ROSINHA was hatched by Southampton Yacht Services in 2016. Built for a most experienced yachtsman for whom performance was super important, she has a full battened mainsail on a carbon V boom and powered cutter rig arrangement forward. She was built for a world cruise and so it was important that she had sparkling performance, and that she could deliver fast passage times and that all this could be accomplished without a large crew.
The Oyster 725 is a development of the Oyster 72 with many subtle updates on the original yacht. ROSINHA has an intelligent deck layout with a retractable passerelle, twin wheels, great entertaining cockpit close to the helm so that sailing her is a social experience. She also has wide side decks and a practical anchoring arrangement.
Down below, the interior is executed in lovely warm teak. The joinery has attractive shadow gaps and it provides a great back drop to the huge amount of light that comes below from the ports and windows throughout the yacht. In the main saloon she has pilothouse windows as well as vertical hull windows providing a large, bright and airy environment from which to live well.
The owners’ accommodation is after with a large owners’ stateroom with a massive en-suite heads compartment with separate shower stall. A corridor runs from the owners’ cabin with doors to a VIP double to port and a large upper and lower berth cabin to starboard. There is a shared heads with shower stall to port with jack and Jill entrance for the VIP cabin to provide an en-suite if wished.
The galley is huge, and open with vast refrigeration and lots of storage and work surfaces. Forward there are 2 upper and lower berth cabins, each with their own shower and heads for crew or additional guests, depending how you run the yacht.
She comes with a very complete specification for world cruising. In this ownership she has cruised the Mediterranean, Caribbean and on the Eastern Seaboard of the States to Florida. She has been a home from home for her current family, in use a lot of the season and has proved herself to be an exceptional platform from which to live well.
Skipper maintained from the beginning, she is offered in full cruising trim and she really does look as if she is just out of the box.
