Advertiser's comments

Fabulously well-presented example of this very rare Holman & Pye designed aft cockpit deck saloon bluewater cruiser from Oyster.   FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:   KAPARDA is Oyster 42 hull number 2. With her original owners from leaving the factory she has enjoyed cruising around Scotland and Ireland. Below decks the oak wood interior creates a modern bright interior with a traditional feel. She has her master cabin forward with en-suite heads, a spacious saloon and galley with a dedicated navigation station and an aft cabin and separate heads.

  Lying afloat on her mooring at Ardfern Yacht Centre, Ardfern the Oyster 42 KAPARDA is available for viewing strictly by prior appointment.   MANUFACTURER’S AND PRESS COMMENTS:   The only aft cockpit deck saloon Oyster design, the 42 moved the owner’s stateroom forward, resulting in an attractive low profile hull, and deep, safe aft cockpit. Oyster launched seven 42s between 1996 and 2002.    'The 42's natural advantage starts with the fact that her cockpit is well laid out. Add to this the positive and direct action of the helm, and her well balanced feel under sail, and you have a sweet, well behaved yacht which is a doddle to handle'. Yachting World.   'The whole interior has a satisfying feeling of quality.' Yachting Monthly.
