Oyster Yachts in the UK has announced the sale of a second unit of its Oyster 118. The new contract comes to fruition after months of discussion with the client on detailed specification and layouts. The second Oyster 118 is scheduled for delivery in spring 2020.

Hull moulding will start in the next couple of months in Oyster’s dedicated facility at HMS Daedalus, near Portsmouth and fit-out will start in 2018 in Oyster’s Custom & Refit shipyard at Saxon Wharf in Southampton.

Plans are now being developed to expand the facilities at Saxon Wharf so that 118-03 can be built partly in parallel with 118-02 for a late summer 2020 delivery, with 118-04 being offered for 2021 delivery.

Oyster 118-02 will be the 40th yacht built by Oyster over 80ft since the first Oyster 82, which dates back some 15 years.

According to data from the Global Order Book (excluding yachts ‘on-hold’) this contract means that Oyster achieves 30% market share of the global order book for projects in the 24m-36m range to be delivered in the 2017– 2020 period.
