The Oyster 675 marks the beginning of a new series for Oyster, which will position the brand going forwards, and it's impressive. Our reviewer, Dieter Loibner, introduces us to the Oyster 675 at the Dusseldorf Boat Show.

It's a Rob Humphreys' design with a variety of options to choose from including two keel choices (fixed fin or swing). There are also two stern choices; standard, or a 'yacht' stern, which has a square shape and creates more space on deck with space below for a dinghy garage.

The design is bespoke Oyster and yet somehow it appears fresher, sportier and with a 200 square meter upwind sail area this boat has legs. It's going to be fast on ocean crossings and it's going to be competitive at Oyster regattas.

Up forward the lounge cockpit is neatly separated from the working cockpit aft.

the atmosphere in the saloon is bright and friendly, helped by the big windows. To port there is a step-down galley equipped with all you can wish for. The same can be said of the nav station to port. Forward there is a big dinette which can host up to eight guests.
