Broker’s Comments

The Carkeek CF520 is the very latest in hull design from the Carkeek drawing board. Hot off the heels of the super successful 40ft RAN, and using the TP52 as the benchmark to be improved on without the constraints of class rules the radical hull form has demonstrated that it is clearly more efficient in terms of the hull construction and also providing a more stable platform in terms of pitch in a seaway.

The CF 520 is a lighter, stiffer, faster, higher stability platform than a TP52, with increased level of control, reliability and flexibility to mode, along with an emphasis on ergonomics, comfort and dryness offshore.

Although clearly designed with offshore in mind, with detail on waterproofing, water ballast and deck ergonomics, she is still very competitive inshore.

Lighter, with more sail area and more righting moment that the TP52, she performs well in a breeze and offwind are her specialities. A large amount of grip with the twin rudder system gives the opportunity to push even harder at higher heel angles with no fear of letting go.

OYSTERCATCHER XXXV was built by Fibre mechanics and the composite structure was then transported to Ipswich to be fitted out by Fox’s boatyard and refit facility, more famed for their work on the prestigious Oyster Yachts brand. She was painted there, and the electronics, hydraulics, engineering and systems were fitted by specialists in their areas. The yacht has been very well appointed and gives a unique opportunity for the next owner to jump straight into for the Caribbean or Australian season for immediate delivery and a substantial saving on a new build.

Owner’s Comments

OYSTERCATCHER XXXV performs well and is very fast in a breeze, although most of the season (2021), with the exception of the Fastnet and 1 day of Cowes Week, she has been sailed in light or very light conditions.

The design incorporates a water ballast system for which there is an IRC rating premium of 5 points (both with & without certs. available). We have found the yacht has good stability without the water ballast and have therefore elected to race without it. The ballast system is fully installed and may be beneficial to offer distance or passage racing etc.

Race Results (2021):

  • EAORA Class 1 championship – 1st.
  • EAORA Walker Challenge Cup – 1st.
  • Eastern Region UK IRC championship – 1st.
  • Ramsgate Week Class 1 – 1st.
  • Ramsgate Gold Cup – 1st.
  • NYYC Cup Cowes – 2nd.
  • Fastnet race class zero – 3rd, 10th Overall.
