Broker Remarks

You know what they say about boat design - if it looks right it probably is right! The Oyster 42 is a particularly pretty boat, and is not just a great sailing boat with a well known thoroughbred, she is also easily handled by a couple. 'Oystermist' has been well looked after and continually updated, and with her high level of cruising equipment she is ready to go just about anywhere. Sleeps 6 in 2 double and 2 single berths in 3 cabins including the saloon.
