The legendary Oyster 485 is a benchmark Holman and Pye design with low freeboard, a gentle sheer line and balanced ends featuring the now classic Oyster deck salon with eyebrow styling and a center cockpit. The Oyster 485 is a sleek and comfortable world cruising yacht that is easily handled by a couple. The Oyster 485 was production for a decade from 1992 to 2002, during which time only thirty-six 485s were built. These vessels are rare to the market and remain in demand by those seeking a capable bluewater cruising yacht under fifty feet. This Oyster 485 has just completed an extensive refit which includes new Awlgrip decks, dodger canvas, bow thruster, all new electronics and more. This Oyster is maintained by a local marine professional who has spent well more than $150,000 in recent upgrades. A change in the owners plans presents a rare opportunity.
