Designed by Holman and Pye, the Oyster 47 is the extended version of the successful Oyster 45. The spacious and comfortable interior layout was retained, whilst the extra length permitted a large lazarette locker and two useful deck lockers, greatly enhancing the deck storage. The 47 also kept the Oyster rugged offshore trademarks of single-skin hull construction with massive ribs and stringers providing stiffness, balsa core to the deck for insulation, a keel-stepped mast, and full-length skeg to protect the rudder.
Perhaps the best feature of the 47 is full width saloon, which has a lovely light and open feel due to the large deck saloon windows, two of which open to provide superb ventilation. The straight saloon seating provides two excellent sea-berths. When opened up, the wonderful saloon table connects the two settees, and enables a large number of guests to be entertained. The aft end of the saloon is open to the galley, so the cook is also fully involved socially.
The dedicated navigation station is on the starboard side of the saloon, and just aft of this is a large walk-in locker, which can also be accessed from the cockpit. A hugely popular feature among 47 owners, this space can be used for storage, a workshop and location for a holding tank.
A great performer under sail, the 47 nonetheless has a reassuring motion offshore thanks to her balanced hull, fine entry, and the stiffness provided by her external lead bulb keel. The 47 is a proven circumnavigator, long distance blue-water cruiser and liveaboard, but due to her compact overall length she is also a great local family cruiser, as she is simplicity itself to handle. Oyster launched thirteen 47s between 2000 and 2004, to add to the twenty-three 45s.
‘Crazy Diamond’ has been in her current ownership for ten years, and benefits from the larger 75hp engine and shaft drive. Her rig has been carefully thought through and specified for versatility and ease of handling. Her mainsail has slab reefing which gives better performance under sail, with lazyjacks and stack pack, and lines led aft. A removable inner forestay allows the setting of a staysail or storm jib, if required.
Below decks she sleeps six in three cabins, with another two sea-berths in the saloon if required, her hand crafted interior joinery is in the popular light oak, and is in superb condition, giving a light and contemporary feel.
