This particular Oyster 435 has been comprehensively refitted by her previous owner including new standing rigging, new sails, new teak decks & Hotvac Osmosis Treatment & as a result certainly belies her age. Her current owner has kept her very well maintained and has cruised from Croatia to UK over the last 4 years. Oyster are renown for building yachts of distinction and this 435 certainly does not disappoint. The Oyster 435 was the most popular model Oyster have ever built with 65 produced which is understandable when looking at her sleek lines, impressive styling and great looks which are still contemporary. She is a pleasure to sail and a joy to spend time aboard and will make the ideal family cruiser that is equally at home in Coastal waters as she is in long distance cruising.
