Broker’s Comments

GIGI is a well-equipped and much updated example of the Oyster 56 class.

She benefits from hydraulic in mast furling and hydraulic headsail furling – so, with her electric winches and well laid out deck plan she is easily sailed by one or two people. Further main systems installed include: Air conditioning / heating; 7.5kW gen set; Water-maker; Bowthruster. 2017-2018 she had a refit.

GIGI had her teak decking replaced in 2017. The mast was out of the boat in 2018 and mast and boom were re-painted, she had a full rig check with many new parts and rebuilt furler. The mainsail was new 2018. Other upgrades are detailed below.

From December 2019 until July 2020, the yacht was stored ashore. She was then launched but was not in use due to Covid 19 (however she had a liveaboard crew throughout most of this period and has been continually maintained).

Owner’s Comments

I have loved owning GIGI, with her name which is easy to spell phonetically on the VHF – my previous yacht was called ONO NONO which was always difficult, particularly when she was based in Cyprus!

During my ownership of GIGI, we have cruised the Greek Islands and the East Coast of Spain. Whilst the cruising has been super, the thing that I have enjoyed most about owning her, is looking after her which has been great fun and very rewarding.

In 2017 GIGI had a major nautical makeover. You will read about this in these particulars, but the thing that has improved her most is her new teak deck which is beautiful and I don’t think that you will find a better Oyster 56 out on the water. Whilst in refit, the mast was resprayed beautifully and we even had the winches re-chromed so they now look new.

I will be very sad to hand GIGI onto her new owner. However, for health and age reasons, it is now time to say good bye to her. The 3 hour drive to visit her has now become too much to manage. I hope that she brings as much joy to her next owner as she has to me.
