The Oyster 66, designed by the Oyster design team in conjunction with Rob Humphreys, has many of the characteristics of a yacht much bigger than its size.
Miss Molly, 66-08, is in just her second ownership, yet has a logbook unlike any other having extensively cruised the world over, including the high latitudes of Antarctica. Cutter-rigged, with simple push button in-mast furling hydraulic main, furling genoa and self-tacking staysail, she is perfectly equipped for shorthanded cruising and can easily be run solely by the owners or crew.
Below deck, the space is optimised beyond belief. The saloon, split in to two areas, features an upper dining area with panoramic views, whilst simultaneously the lower saloon offers a cosy haven to relax and read a book.
The accommodation is both versatile and comfortable with an incredible 10 berths in 5 cabins, three of which feature en-suites. Fully equipped for extended voyaging with all the creature comforts, Miss Molly features air-conditioning throughout, Eberspacher hydronic heating, a watermaker capable of producing 1,200 gallons a day and a galley stacked full of equipment.
Beautifully cared for by a dedicated couple and conscientious owners, she has been maintained with the uttermost precision and care.
Berthed in Palma de Mallorca, she is a yacht not to be missed!
