Oyster Cracker was launched in July 2000 and specified with blue water cruising in mind. She has been very lightly cruised throughout her life and always kept in perfect condition with no expense spared. Having spent most of her life in Italy, she is cruising the Caribbean in 2017. Perfectly set up for blue water voyages, she benefits from a cutter rig, seldom specified on the 47’s, new solar panels, recent electronics upgrades and everything serviced and up to date. Early viewing recommended.
