ROSINHA was specified for a serious world cruise. She has a powerful fully battened mainsail with a carbon V boom for easy handling and the genoa and staysail are on automated furling. The deck layout is very thoughtfully arranged so that she is simply managed with small crews, yet the sailing performance is excellent. Down below, she has a teak interior beautifully executed in quarter sawn teak by Oyster, and the attention to detail with shadow gap joinery can be seen throughout. She has a comprehensive electronics package from Raymarine and full communications as well as full audio visual throughout the yacht.
Her interior layout is practical and spacious with a large owners’ stateroom after which en-suite heads and separate shower, and 2 further guest cabins aft of the saloon. There is a VIP cabin and a large upper and lower berth cabin. They share an en-suite heads with shower and there is a jack and jill door to the VIP cabin in case this heads is used as an en-suite to this cabin. Forward of the large galley is an upper and lower berth crew cabin with a further double cabin to starboard either for guests or as extra crew space. Both have their own heads. This layout is magic for both family and charter use.
She has been skipper maintained from Day One. In this ownership, she has crossed the Atlantic and cruised on the East Coast of the USA before sailing to the Caribbean for some family holidays. She has never been chartered. She then sailed back across the Atlantic to Palma. All her hours and levels of usage are very low even for such a recent yacht.
She has lots of lovely modern Oyster touches like the vertical windows in the main saloon and modern styling on the superstructure.
This outstanding yacht is now being offered for sale, as her owners have decided to build a motor yacht to fit with their cruising plans for now. ROSINHA offers a great opportunity to acquire a modern Rob Humphreys’ Oyster at a very competitive price. The Oyster 72 and 725 have proved themselves to be exceptional blue water cruising yachts and ROSINHA is a very recent member of this great fleet.
I love that ROSINHA is so spacious and comfortable, she quickly becomes the family’s second home away from home in Florida, allowing us great sailing experiences while maintaining our family privacy during our summer vacations in the South of France and Italy, and winter vacations in the Caribbean.
The yacht’s robustness and cruising capability where so great that she enabled us to do multiple cross Atlantic trips without any problems. The crew accommodation has ample space, for the captain and his wife to live on board comfortably.
During my ownership, the family spent on average some 70+ days a year on board!
The thing that we will miss most about ROSINHA is the wonderful cockpit seating arrangement and aft seats, both unique to the Oyster fleet design, which allowed us great interaction amongst family and guests while cruising or anchored.
ROSINHA has been such a great platform that while we owned the yacht we spent practically all our free weekends and vacationing time onboard.
One thing people don’t realize is that the running expenses for a yacht of that size is not very different from what you would spend vacationing with the family in hotels, wining and dining for the length of period in the same places where you usually cruise.
We have sailed 35.000 nautical miles with ROSINHA. She was delivered in the Channel Islands in March 2017 and taken to La Rochelle for commissioning and provisioning. The first summer season was spent in the Med sailing to Ibiza, Formentera, Palma, Toulon, Saint-Tropez, Cap Antibes, Cannes, Villefrance, Cap Ferrat, Monaco, Menton, Bonifacio, La Maddalena, Porto Cervo and Olbia.
In the second season we sailed to Napoli, Capri, Ischia, Sorrento, Nerano, Positano, Amalfi, Bonifacio, La Maddalena, Porto Cervo, Olbia, Milazzo, Vulcano, Lipari, Panarea and Palma.
The following season we decided to stay with the yacht in the US and went up the east coast starting in Key West, then Maimi, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Annapolis, Baltimore, Sag Harbor, Montauk, New Shoreham, Newport, Bristol, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Cape Cod, Boston, Marble head and Salem.
In the winter season the yacht was based at Simpson Bay Lagoon in Saint Martin and for most of the time used in Saint Martin, Anguila, Saint Barth’s, British and US Virgin Islands with but we did a couple of sailing trips to St. Lucia, Grenadines, Grenada, Antigua, Vieques and San Juan de Puerto Rico.
