This popular 90-foot blue water sailing yacht undergoes a restyling reflecting desire for more on-board entertainment space with Oyster's trademark stylish low-profile deck saloon.

The new Oyster 885SII may be the same overall length as the popular Oyster 885SI, but she offers a different on-water profile thanks to her revised deck layout. With a restyled sleeker deck saloon and extended bow sprit, the 885SII's styling is consistent with the rest of the Oyster fleet. Beyond her stunning looks, the primary benefit is more space for onboard entertaining, with a larger cockpit area and dinghy well which doubles as a chillout area, perfect for relaxing or taking in a film under the stars.

The cockpit will seat ten comfortably and features a multifunction table with integrated drinks refrigerator, audio and mood lighting. The larger dinghy well can house a more powerful 5m jet RIB, ideal for watersports, as well as shore transfers. The dinghy well converts seamlessly into a day or night chillout zone, with sun shade, audio and vision. In addition, the large hydraulic bathing platform offers great access to the water and a further area for sunbathing, dining or relaxing.

Below decks, the 885SII features Oyster's new generation contemporary styling. With a variety of customisable options, she offers six luxury cabins, with four double ensuites and separate crew quarters. The interior styling comes in a choice of wood finishes, all meticulously crafted to the highest exacting standards by Oyster's master crafts people.

The light and spacious interior saloon comfortably seats ten guests. She is equipped with a variety of convenient and connected tech from infotainment systems, wireless audio, through to sophisticated mood lighting, WIFI and enhanced navigations systems.

Built to exacting Lloyds Register certification, this is the first Series II featuring the restyled deck - the initial two 885SII hulls featured the raised saloon style deck which provides an alternative saloon layout.

The 885SII offers all the benefits of a 90ft yacht but comes in just below the 24m Load Line Rule, which removes much of the red tape required for a larger yacht. With safety and assurance paramount - and with two of the brand-new Oyster 885SIIs embarking on the Oyster World Rally 2024-25 - she is also fitted with the Oyster's integrated safety system, Guardian Angel. Connecting Oyster HQ to Oyster yachts anywhere in the world, Oyster Guardian Angel monitors the health of onboard systems and services live, and enables owners to seek assistance or advice, and for Oyster HQ to raise the alert on any issues remotely.

"We're delighted to see the new 885SII deck styling on the water," says Oyster CEO, Ashley Highfield. "This flagship 90 foot length offers the ultimate in luxurious onboard living and entertainment, combined with finger-tip control twin rudders and sail plan for exhilarating and fast sailing, and with the option of centreboard keel enabling owners to explore shallow cruising grounds and idyllic anchorages."
