Broker’s Comments

OCEAN INDIES is a superb example of her class with a very high level of specification and smart cherry wood interior. She is only in her third ownership and is offered for sale after a comfortable and enjoyable period in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. She is now enjoying an end of season pit stop and she will be offered for sale ready for the 2018 season.

The current owners purchased her she had completed as substantial refit with her second owner to prepare the yacht for an ARC which never actually happened. Works carried out during their ownership included –

  • New paint work and teak deck.
  • Overhaul of rig and sails.
  • Overhaul of main engine replacement of generator.
  • Rebuild of electric hydraulic system and Lewmar Commander power boom.
  • Overhaul of air-conditioning.
  • Overhaul of plumbing system including new black tank forward and new piping.
  • Interior refurbishment.

Work carried out in this ownership includes –

  • All new batteries
  • Full service of the main engine
  • Refurbishment of the hydraulic systems
  • Rebuild of the Rondal yankee furler
  • Updated safety gear to bring the yacht up to MCA Category 2 standards.

The Oyster 68’ is a splendid go anywhere blue water cruising yacht. With her powered rig, she is easy to handle and is a powerful passage maker. She has great accommodation, easily accommodating crew if required. She can be managed also as a family/owner driver cruising yacht and she will take you far.

Owner’s Comments

As a family we have loved owning and cruising with OCEAN INDIES.  She offers lots of space, easy and long legged passage times and a safe deck layout.   We have sailed with her in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean and it has been a wonderful experience.  However, for the next period we have less time to indulge in sailing to the extent that we have during the past couple of season, so we have decided to put the yacht on the market.


We hope that OCEAN INDIES’s next owners have as much fun with her as we have done and also if there is anyone who would be interested in taking a 50% share in OCEAN INDIES we would be very happy to discuss this.
