As the first Oyster design by Rob Humphreys in this size range, the 46 represented a move towards a more powerful hull
shape, with longer waterline and broader sections aft. This improved form stability, and sailing performance, especially down
wind, whilst her increased sail area helps to return enough sensitivity, even in lighter airs, to make her a real sailors yacht.
Good headroom throughout and a spacious three cabin layout sleeps six in comfort, with an additional two sea berths possible
in the saloon. The owner’s stateroom enjoys an en-suite head shower, while the forward double and twin cabins share
an additional head/shower, which becomes the day head underway. The 46 was an immediate success, twenty-nine were
launched between 2005 and 2012, when she was updated to become the new Oyster 475.
This is a beautiful and virtually unused late Oyster 46, with less than 600 engine hours. The next owner will purchase a wonderful
example, almost as new below decks with unmarked maple joinery and traditional teak sole boards. She sleeps six in
three comfortable cabins.
Sloop rigged with single line reefing to the mainsail and electric winches making her easy to handle. Bow thruster, air conditioning,
holding tank, freezer and recently upgraded electronics feature on her sensible inventory.
