Broker’s Comments

SAFIYA is a recent Oyster 575 from 2016 with a striking hull livery, seascape windows in the main saloon and an automated rig. She was totally set up for world cruising for her first owner and has performed in this role beautifully. She has been updated and improved in this ownership and is compact enough for local cruising. She can be easily handled by a couple, yet has room for a skipper as well as four guests as you prefer. She is ready to sail, and has been coded to MCA Category 2 for 2024, .

Oyster 575, SAFIYA, is continuously maintained and over December 2023 has completed an end-of-season service period. This service included a full refurbishment of the propeller with new bearings, a new heat exchanger on the main engine, antifouling, replacement of anodes, and an underwater check.

Owner’s Comments

I bought the Oyster 575, SAFIYA in spring 2021 and in my ownership she has sailed mostly around the lovely Balearic Islands. In the autumn of 2022, she sailed back from Spain to the UK so that I could use her in South Coast waters.

When I bought SAFIYA she was in incredible condition. During my ownership, a new satellite system has been fitted, and I’ve employed a full-time skipper to oversee maintenance, ensuring everything is well-maintained. All equipment servicing was done in 2022 from liferafts, through to fire extinguishers. I have also brought her up to MCA Category 2.

I have been a fan of Oyster yachts for many years. I first looked closely at the Oyster 62 when she was launched at Southampton Boat Show in 2000, and since then I always aspired to an Oyster. For many years I owned a Southerly 135. Hence, I was keen on moving up in size to a yacht with first-class build quality. I felt that anything more than 60 feet was going to be too big for a couple to handle. In addition, I felt that as I wanted to do some long distance sailing, perhaps round the world, I was attracted to Oyster – which are designed for that sort of cruising. The Oyster 575 seemed a perfect fit.

I love SAFIYA as she is the most comfortable yacht even in the most challenging of conditions. You never feel anything but safe on her. You always feel that you are in control and she manoeuvres extremely well even in tight marinas. You get no surprises from her. She is big enough so that you can enjoy the space, even when you have family and friends aboard and she never feels crowded. The previous owner had her built to go round the world, which he did and he had owned an Oyster 56 for ten years previously so SAFIYA was commissioned with that experience in mind.

There is nothing missing in the specification for world cruising and she has already done this successfully. She has a full inventory of spares. Providing you keep on top of the maintenance she is an easy yacht to look after. Everything is solidly built and clearly labelled. I like that she is totally self-contained with lots of storage, an efficient electric system, generator and watermaker. Every conceivable comms system including back up to the backup – with two satellite systems and an SSB.

SAFIYA is ready for any adventure with short notice. A sailing couple could spend as much time as they wished on on board and would do so in comfort and safety.
