The first Rob Humphreys designed Oyster 62 to reach the brokerage market, this boat was built to sail to the Arctic and then to New Zealand for the Americas Cup. Successfully competed in many races, including winning her class in the ARC. Equipped with a special tall, carbon fibre, sports rig and almost every conceivable optional extra, this boat represents an ideal opportunity to purchase a nearly new boat at a considerable saving.
