Oyster 565: Designed for sailing without the need for professional crew

The Oyster 565 is our new, award-winning blue water sailing yacht, part of our sixth Generation (G6) fleet of Oyster sailing yachts. Using the latest Oyster hull shapes developed with Humphreys Yacht Design, the 59.3 ft Oyster 565 is designed for easy family and couples sailing without the need for professional crew.

Crafted from years of experience building over 120 Oyster 56 and Oyster 575 blue water sailing yachts, the new Oyster 565 takes Oyster’s premium sailboat design to the next level. The latest twin-rudder hull form, shared with the rest of the current range, provides a well-balanced steering system while facilitating many different layout and keel options. These include a supershoal with centreboard for navigating shallow waters and or extended transom which offers more space to entertain when outdoors.

Many of our World Rally participants have sailed around the world on this model’s predecessors, and with improved design the Oyster 565 offers an even higher level of comfort for long-distance ocean cruising or global circumnavigation. This new sailing yacht is also just as suited to shorthanded weekend sailing in the Med, offering a luxurious base upon which to spend time with the family, or for high-speed cruising along the coast. Sleek, customisable interior design ensures that wherever in the world you are, your blue water sailboat will feel like home.

Standout Features

The 565 condenses countless sea-miles and owner feedback over last 25 years into one our new generation of G6 yachts, balancing powerful lines and enhanced performance with improved features over our older models.

Our sub 60 foot sailboat design provides an extremely comfortable shorthanded sailing experience for families and couples alike. Faster and sleeker than previous models, our Oyster 565 breezes through the seas whichever configuration you choose. The option of a supershoal sail plan with centerboard allows for safe and easy shallow-water sailing, while configuring the yacht with our ‘sports pack’ will enhance its performance in racing events like the Oyster Regattas.
