2002 Oyster 62 “Ixion” for sale.

Extensively re-fitted/upgraded and fully VAT paid – Certificate Available.

The Oyster 62 is without doubt one of the finest cruising yachts ever designed. Elegant, fast, responsive and comfortable she has all the attributes desired by the discerning cruising yachtsman.

Easily capable of 200 miles a day in supreme comfort, the Oyster 62 also has a competitive pedigree to match her beautifully drawn lines, with many successes in ocean races and regattas. For example, an Oyster 62 won her class in the ARC and was first to finish in all cruising classes with 178 yachts trailing in her wake. She averaged 10 knots over 1900 miles and then subsequently won all five races in Cruising Class 1 at Antigua race week.

Whilst undoubtedly fast, this Humphreys designed yacht is also easy to sail and can claim to have one of the safest and most family friendly cockpits in her class. Oyster 62’s have safely circumnavigated with young families on board and have even sailed to the Arctic reaching 80 degrees north.

With the 62 offering the perfect package of speed, elegance, luxury and easy safe comfortable cruising, we are pleased to list IXION.

Owned by a knowledgeable and meticulous yachtsman, IXION has been professionally maintained and has had attention and care of the highest order lavished upon her. She has nine berths in five cabins excluding the saloon and benefits from two extensive re-fits (2010 and 2011) under the watchful and expert eyes of SYS and the Rigshop at Saxon Wharf Southampton, including a full mast down rig check, mast painting and all required upgrades.

Now based in the western Mediterranean, she is in fine condition and this beautifully performing yacht (which won the Antigua Concours D’elegance) has had other recent additions including a completely new entertainment system, new electronics and a new 17.5 kw Onan Genset system.

She is an ideal choice for those looking for a well maintained and incredibly capable cruising yacht.

Fully VAT paid.
