Oyster Reach is a rare example of the celebrated Oyster 54 built between 2018 and 2013 to further enhance the Oyster 53, with more sail area and a longer waterline for greater performance, as well the improved comfort of an elongated stern and 25% larger cockpit.

Offering the comfort and luxurious appointment of a Superyacht, Oyster Reach is set up to be easily handled by a couple, while also offering a layout to accommodate guests and professional crew while allowing privacy and ease of movement through the boat.

Capable to take you anywhere in the world and ready to go at a moment's notice, Oyster Reach is fully loaded with everything you need to just step aboard, including numerous tools and spares.

After 7 months in dry storage at Vuda Marina in Fiji, the yacht was just re-splashed in early June 2023 after a fresh antifoul and detailed inside and out.

At that time Oyster Reach was also surveyed in and out of the water by an independent marine surveyor appointed by the seller for a fully comprehensive expert inspection, including motor, generator, electrics and full rig check. The report is available on request.

A Word From The Owner:
"Oyster Reach has been our full time home since 2017, and she has been a dependable, supportive and wonderful platform from which to explore the world. Ian and I had professional careers prior to meeting, him an investment banker on Wall Street, me a healthcare executive. We met after we had both taken early retirement, on a race from Florida to Isla Mujeres Mexico. It was love at first sight, and we began doing deliveries together. One thing led to another, and we began our second career in 2002 as professional yacht crew which we did for 15 years. Ten of those years was crewing on Oyster 665s in the Mediterranean and South Pacific, during which we crossed the Atlantic 3 times and the Pacific twice.

It was during our Pacific adventures that we decided to sail to New Zealand and buy a boat there with the intention of wintering in the islands (Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu) and summering in New Zealand. Buying a boat already in the South Pacific was a big draw for us, already in the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world and shorter passages to get to the islands. With that goal in mind, we crewed on the second Oyster World Rally from the Caribbean to New Zealand, first on an Oyster 49, followed by an Oyster 54. Once we got to New Zealand, several of the Oysters were put up for sale and we did not think twice about purchasing one of them. Having worked and sailed on Oysters for 10 years, we knew personally the quality workmanship and phenomenal owner support for the brand.

So in 2017 we closed on Oyster Reach and began to enjoy our second retirement. In 2018 we sailed to Tonga, Samoa, Wallis and Fortuna, Fiji, and back to New Zealand. In 2018 we sailed to Fiji, Vanuatu, and back to New Zealand again. Of course, in 2020 COVID changed the world and we were fortunate to be able to stay in New Zealand until 2022 when we sailed back to Fiji.

Oyster Reach is a dream to sail with two people. Electric winches, furling sails and a powerful electric windlass make deploying sails and anchoring easy and safe. We also love that she likes to get up and go in not much breeze. The interior is easy to take care of and systems are well thought out with stellar support from Oyster After Sales Support. The cockpit is roomy for entertaining as well as the saloon where we have hosted 10 people with the fold-out dining table. The galley has lots of storage space, is designed to be safe at sea, and the full sized refrigerator is a dream. Oyster Reach has helped us build unforgettable and lasting memories which will last a lifetime and we hope she will do the same for you. " Cindy Smith. June 2023.
