This 1986 Oyster 435 has been comprehensively refitted in her life time by the past two owners including latest upgrades of new standing rigging in 2019, new water maker 2020, mast rewired 2019, new solar 2019 and benefits from a comprehensive inventory of Raymarine electronics installed in 2016. As a result she certainly belies her age. We sold this boat to her current owners so we have a lot of history on her. Her current owners have kept her very well maintained and have upgraded the boat considerably over the past two years and she is immaculate for her years inside and out, a true testament to the love and care she has received. The photographs on this listing were taken October 2020 and this content is a true representation of her look, feel and condition. You will not be disappointed to go abroad and visit as she is truly as described. 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. She is BLUE WATER ready. Easily accessible in Southern Spain with a short 1 hour drive from Malaga Airport or a simple 10 min walk over the boarder from Gibraltar airport. Viewing strongly recommended as this boat is exceptional. I have much more additional information so please contact Roger at Ancasta Sotogrande on +34 693 555 696 or email rogerbailey@ancasta.com
