The Oyster 435 is a respected blue water cruiser from pedigree builders in the UK. She has served her previous and current owners proud and cruised extensively as they yachts should be. For the last decade she has only been used in the Med sailing no further than Italy based between Greece and Turkey as well as Israel for day sailing. Comfortable and spacious with Oysters Holman & Pye influence there is more than ample room for liveaboard cruising in comfort and safety.

Whilst there have been practical upgrades and improvements over the years the price has been set to take into account that the hull will require an osmosis treatment (if the new owner decides it is worth the cost of doing), the teak decks are at the end of their life and need full servicing or replacement/removal, the engine is recently fully serviced and checked is original and that the standing rigging is now 5 years old.
