This is the Oyster 745, one of the company’s generation 6 designs with an all-new hull design by Rob Humphreys which has more beam carried further aft and also a plumb bow, which gives it roughly 15 per cent more interior volume than the previous Oyster 725. It is a higher performance hull that will give better hull speed and faster passage times.

Take a closer look at the boat in our First Look Video below.


As with all Oyster’s models, the interior can be modified to suit the owner’s priorities, but they are all based around this big deck saloon with the vertical hull windows. It’s a bright open space very pleasant to spend time in with opening windows forward for plenty of air ventilation.

This example has a four-cabin layout, plus the skipper’s cabin at the front. It includes the master cabin at the back, which has three vertical windows each side, giving a good view out.

Compared with earlier Oyster designs, The Oyster 745 has a very clean, flush foredeck. It also has a different rig configuration with a more easily handled but more efficient 105 per cent jib rather than the larger overlapping headsails that earlier boats had.
