Due to popular demand to see the new Oyster 495 on its World Premiere Tour, Oyster Yachts has added extra destinations to meet customer and media demand. 

Oyster Yachts will now be exhibiting the Oyster 495 at Genoa International Boat Show, from 22-27 September.  

The World Premier Tour started at St Katherine Docks, London in April, where the 495 departed on her maiden voyage to Oslo.  From there, the tour heads to Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Southampton and then to the Mediterranean, visiting Barcelona, Cannes Boat Show (6-11 September) Genoa, Palma, before heading to Miami and then onto Sydney in 2023.  

The Oyster 495 has been heralded as setting a new bluewater benchmark and is anticipated as a game changer for luxury, custom built cruising yachts. 

"The Private View concept has been very successful for us, especially over the past couple of years. The World Premiere further develops this concept and, importantly, takes us direct to our clients.  Each stopover event will be managed by our Sales Team and guests will be able to explore this ground-breaking boat in safety and in their own time," comments Stephen Parkinson, Oyster Sales Director, Rest of World. 

The 495 is a collaboration between Humphreys Yacht Design and Oyster's own in-house design studio, overseen by Oyster's CEO & owner Richard Hadida and Oyster's founder Richard Matthews. 
This hugely experienced team have produced their best work to date, creating this remarkable new Oyster. The powerful G6 twin rudder hull form delivers true performance cruising and clean lines. The beam is set well aft, contributing form, stability, and great sailing performance, making the Oyster 495 a true live aboard, go-anywhere bluewater yacht, designed to be sailed shorthanded.    

Hand-built with Oyster's thoroughbred bluewater DNA running through her from bow to stern, the 495 offers many of the exceptional features found on the luxury boat builder's larger yachts, making her unique amongst her peers. Easily handled by a couple or family, she is equally at home on coastal cruising trips, crossing an ocean or even circumnavigating the globe.
