There’s no substitute for a hands-on review of a yacht’s performance under sail.
Recently, sailing journalist Toby Hodge had the opportunity to join the luxury sailing charter vessel Oyster 575 ON LIBERTY for a 220 nautical mile passage from Palma, Mallorca to Cartagena, Spain. Hodge’s review appeared between the covers of the February 2011 issue of Yachting World magazine.
ON LIBERTY is a new entry into the charter market. Her pure hull lines will ensure this yacht is a fast passage maker. Imagine planning a Virgin Islands yacht charter holiday on a blue water cruiser with exhilarating performance.
But hey – no need to take our word – read some of Toby Hodge’s comments:“The 575 proved easy to handle…She’s another slippery yacht…with an easy motion that will be greatly appreciated at sea”
“Thanks to the twin wheels, the helmsman has unhindered views forward from both sides and I love what happens when you go through waves – nothing – she’s as well mannered as a royal butler.”
“Oyster has a winning recipe for internal layouts, thanks to the center cockpit which creates sumptuous aft cabins, large passageway or U-shaped galleys and spacious saloons set low down to maintain privacy, but enjoying plenty of daylight from the coachroof windows.”
