The Oyster 62 features one of the safest, family-friendly cockpits in a yacht of this size.
Performance under sail and power is excellent with 200-mile days in full cruising trim being the norm. The 62 proved her outstanding performance with an easy class win in the ARC, also winning cruising line honours and being the first to finish in all cruising classes with 178 yachts astern. In Antigua Sailing Week a 62 won all five races in Cruising Class 1.
Speed under sail is only part of the story, since the 62 is also easy to handle. Maurice and Eveline Frankefort sailed around the world in their 62 Quest with just their young family on board, whilst world renowned sailor, Gary Jobson, who has sailed yachts that have won both the America’s Cup and Fastnet Race, sailed a 62 to the Arctic, reaching 80 degrees north.
The 62 is available with either a four or a five cabin configuration, with up to three toilet/shower compartments, and offers a package of accommodation and features that compare favourably with many much larger yachts.
