Advertiser's comments

OYSTER 56 MAYLEA Broker's comments 56-65 Maylea is a stunning example of a late model 56, featuring the latest G5 styling, modern flowing lines and sleek looks both outside and in. Cutter rigged with electric in-mast furling, electric furling headsails, electric primary and mainsheet winches, and additional spinnaker package, Maylea is great for short-handed bluewater sailing. Extensively refitted by Oyster in 2019 and consistently maintained by a very conscientious owner ever since, she really stands out in the brokerage fleet. Works included the complete removal and reapplication of all antifouling, full rig inspection with servicing and replacement as necessary, rudder servicing, propellor works, new batteries, new main and kedge anchor, tank cleaning, upgraded internet connectivity and new exterior cushions throughout, to name a few.   Below deck, she is finished in warm maple interior, which are juxtaposed perfectly against the striking black and silver furnishings. With eight berths in four cabins, Maylea is fantastically versatile and perfectly equipped with a long list of equipment that makes extended trips onboard effortless.   Currently based in a marina in Genoa, Italy, she is in a fantastic cruising ground and is ready to go sailing. Early viewing is highly recommended.

On the body the gelcoat is a features Isophthalic resin and the outer laminates incorporate a vinylester resin and powder-bound matts. This combination provides exceptional UV, weathering and water resistance properties.
In load bearing areas the core is replaced with plywood for additional strength, and all load-bearing fittings have aluminium backing plates.
Construction is crafted in accordance to the fresh G5 styling, providing more modern flowing lines, setting fresh industry basics with sleek looks both outside and in, whilst maintaining the Oyster trademark and reputation for a light and airy deck bar.
