The second Oyster model to be designed by Rob Humphreys, the Oyster 53 is very much a little sister to the 56 and outstanding success in her own right. With fifty-two launched between 1999 and 2008, she has proven herself to be easy to sail by a couple. Comfortable in heavy seas, well balanced and fast, she is a pure joy to sail. 

The design brief for the Oyster 53 was to create a yacht with a center cockpit Deck Saloon configuration that offered many of the features of the larger Oyster 56, but still maintained a stylish, well-proportioned outboard profile. 

Rob Humphreys designed the hull, deck and rig, while Holman & Pye designed the interior layout and provided the technical and structural specification. The Oyster in-house team has coordinated the styling and overall details of the yacht, and as with the Oyster 56, they also integrated the ergonomically designed cockpit whose technical specification originated from the Department of Ergonomics at Loughborough University. This design team approach, linked with the use of powerful integrated CAD design computers, has created a yacht that will set standards in design excellence for a yacht of this size.

Oysters are renowned the world over as one of the premier builders of performance ocean cruising yachts. Built on a reputation of over twenty million blue water ocean miles and ninety circumnavigations, their experience goes into the build quality, exquisite joinery and well thought out engineering. 

The 53 is also the smallest Oyster that offers a four-cabin layout. The fourth cabin was available either as a twin cabin, a single/workshop, or full workshop, offering great versatility, and potential autonomy for long distance cruising. SOLAN has the full workshop version, which comes with an unbelievable amount of storage space.

SOLAN’s owners are very experienced sailors and active racers. As such, they hold their boat to a demanding standard and their upkeep has been consistent with that standard. SOLAN has numerous upgrades, one of the nicest being the self-tailing Anderson winches, of which the primaries and control winches are electric. Solan was constructed in Oyster's Landamores Yard in England. She was further commissioned at their Fox Yard in Ipswich, England.

If a world class yacht with the pedigree of an Oyster is in your sights, you can’t go wrong with SOLAN. She is certainly worthy of your personal inspection. Call and make an appointment to see her today!
