53' Oyster 2001 CONTINGENCY

BROKER DESCRIPTION

The Oyster 53 is an ideal-sized cruising yacht for an owner-operator or family, large enough to have comfort at sea and interior accommodations that can carry all the gear and systems for extended cruising. One of the nicer features is its ability to enter the more secluded anchorages that are not accessible by larger yachts. Thanks to solid fiberglass hull construction, skeg-hung protected rudders and reliable systems, the Oyster 53 is regarded as one of the best cruising yachts available.

CONTINGENCY is an excellent value with its many upgrades, including new engine and generator.
