The Oyster 495 makes first public appearance in London
Yesterday Oyster Yachts officially launched its new sub-50' blue water cruiser, the Oyster 495, at London Luxury Afloat, which is taking place at St. Katharine Docks from 21-24 April. The historic setting of St. Katharine Docks, alongside Tower Bridge, offered the perfect location for Oyster to showcase its new Oyster 495, alongside Oyster's acclaimed 565, 595 and 885 models.
Rebecca Bridgen, Oyster Yachts Deputy CEO, commented shortly after cutting the ribbon to open the event: "We are absolutely delighted to be here at London Luxury Afloat. It is a perfect launch event for the new Oyster 495, a great place to start off the season and a fantastic location for private viewings of some our range of Oysters."
"To be in the heart of London, with all these luxury brands is an amazing opportunity, proven by the record number of guests that are coming to the show to see our yachts."
Oyster Yachts will be hosting a number of special events during London Luxury Afloat, as well as the world premier of the 495, Oyster Brokerage is showcasing the stunning Oyster 885 Clare, the first public appearance of the new Oyster 595, as well as the opportunity to see the award-winning 565 - a unique opportunity to see all four Oyster yachts in one location.
After the show, the brand-new Oyster 495 will depart on the first leg of its World Premiere tour, providing the opportunity for media and Oyster invited guests to sail onboard this new model, which has already been heralded as setting a new bluewater benchmark and is anticipated as a game changer for luxury, custom built cruising yachts.
Departing from London, the Oyster 495 will set off on her maiden voyage to Oslo, and then to Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Southampton, Barcelona, Cannes, Palma, Miami and then Sydney.
