OWNERS COMMENTS:

In early 2000, for reasons that have been conveniently forgotten, we thought that the ideal time to build an ocean-going yacht was when we had a young baby and another on the way… Having previously owned two Oysters we were delighted to receive the details of 461/04 from Oyster Brokerage. An unfinished 1994 hull, which had been sold by Oyster to be finished by a luxury boat builder only to languish in a cradle, curing nicely in a warehouse for 6 years, had come onto the market. After a few bottles of wine and many long, hard looks at each other, we made an offer and the deal was struck.

In July 2000 we became the proud owners of a well-crafted lump of fibreglass and lead; there was a hull and deck, the keel was attached and the structural bulkheads were in situ but otherwise it was a blank (fibreglass) canvas. We were extremely fortunate to engage the services of a fabulous boat builder, Colin Bridle, who had worked at SYS and was very familiar with the build quality and styling required for the Oyster marque.

For the next four years a myriad of works were undertaken until Katswiskas finally got her first taste of the sea on April 26, 2004 when she was launched. With the addition of the mast and spars she suddenly looked like a real yacht. We opted for a cutter rig – our previous Oysters had both been ketches and we had appreciated the flexibility, so a cutter rig made some kind of sense.

We set sail for the first time on July 6, 2004; her maiden voyage to rejoin, after ten years, her Oyster family at the Cowes Oyster Regatta.

In the subsequent years we have had many wonderful experiences in the Solent, the south-west of England, the Channel Islands, Normandy and the north Brittany coast and, for the last two years, on the south coast of Brittany with fabulous sailing from La Rochelle to Benodet and all the islands in between. Katswiskas is a truly wonderful vessel – comfortable and spacious for relaxing and entertaining, yet reassuringly safe and easy to handle when the weather turns against you.

It is with very mixed emotions that we have decided to put her on the market. Work and family commitments have meant that we simply do not have the time to make the most of this beautiful yacht. Just as you pour love and effort into your children in order to see them successfully make their own way into the wide world, so we have decided that it is time for Katswiskas to feel the wind at her heels and go to explore waters new with a new, and extremely lucky, owner.
