It’s only a brief look, but Oyster Marine has launched its first-ever superyacht, the Oyster 100, earlier this month.
The Oyster 100 has been four years in the making. While it may seem an inordinate amount of time, it’s actually not First, while Oyster’s history of building cruising sailing yachts dates back to 1973, its largest project to date is an 82-footer (24.99 meters). While that model has sold quite well, it wasn’t a simple matter of just adding a few feet and calling it a day. Rather, Oyster decided to create a new range of Oyster Superyachts, with the additional input of Dubois Naval Architects and RMK Marine. RMK Marine and Oyster collaborated on the construction of a new build hall just for this range. It also helps that RMK Marine’s parent company, the Koç Group, is headed by a passionate sailor.
The all-fiberglass Oyster 100 is the first of three models in the new range (the Oyster 125 and Oyster 125 Flybridge being the other two). Few details have been released, since sea trials have not yet begun. All that can be revealed for now is that interior design came from Oyster’s in-house team and that she’s being built to Lloyds classification and MCA requirements. Future Oyster 100 owners can opt to bring in their own interior designer.
The Oyster 100 should look much like the rendering above when she is complete. She’ll make her global debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
