Published: Friday, 31 May 2013
Oyster of the UK has just launched its new flagship, the 125 with design by Ed Dubois. The 125, like the other superyachts in the Oyster range, the 100s, were constructed in cooperation with RMK Marine of the Turkey.The particular feature of this yacht is the flybridge, normally found on much larger sailing yachts of 48 metres or more (the 125 is 38 metres). Dubois design office has already constructed a number of sailing superyachts with flybridge and brought this experience to bear on the design of this first 125.This flybridge uses the same superstructure as the Raised Saloon but also offers an upper flybridge with twin helms, lounge, wet bar and sunbathing area. At approximately 200 tonnes lightship displacement, the Oyster 125 by Dubois is a very substantial superyacht, offering performance and comfort. The hull is built in resin-infused composite with carbon and Kevlar for improved performance. The 125 is built to MCA LY2 code and Lloyd’s certified.The cockpit offers several discrete areas for socializing, with a large open space at the bathing platform, a large space aft of the main deck doors and a huge open interior. A large, full-beam master cabin is located under the main cockpit, while two doubles and a twin cabin offer flexibility with guest arrangements. A crew area is located in the bow with galley located forward of the guest areas.
