OverviewThis Oyster 62 designed by Robert Humphreys is a very presentable, stylish and well looked after yacht. New Standing Rigging in 2023 and Running Rigging in 2019 is just one of the advantages.
She is equipped for comfortable, self-sufficient cruising and is beautifully proportioned. Despite her weight, she gives a decent performance on all sail points, and is capable of 9 knots in a 10 knot breeze. Her light and responsive steering gives the helmsman confidence that there will be few surprises when encountering rougher conditions at sea, something this yacht was designed to handle. Galopper has only seen western Mediterranean sailing and has not been sailed hard.
Below decks she is fitted with the Maple option, and this combined with large windows give the feeling of modernity and luminosity.
For those looking for a well equipped blue-water cruiser this is it. She was re-launched in early June 2022, having had all engine mounts replaced, as well as maintenance on the cooling system which now makes for a very quiet, smooth engine. Antifouling included totally stripping back old layers to the original fibre-glass.
