Blue Horizon represents a superb opportunity to acquire a well proven 2010 Oyster 655 with a successful Balearic charter record. Blue Horizon features all the home comforts one would expect from a yacht of this calibre: generator, watermaker, air conditioning, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, even an ice machine.
Below decks, Blue Horizon is built to the highest quality, beautifully finished with a teak interior and cream leather upholstery. Her four generous cabins provide eight comfortable berths.
Blue Horizon has an in-mast furling cutter rig, complete with full hydraulic sail handling package, electric winches, bow thruster and autopilot, ensuring she can be sailed short-handed. Small details, such as the carbon spinnaker pole, hint towards the performance aspect of the 655. This is a powerful, easily-driven hull which will satisfy even the keenest of sailors!
Blue Horizon has sailed and chartered in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. She is lying at Oyster Palma and available for viewing.
