Oyster Yachts to Hold Private Event in Southampton

Publish date:

Sailboat manufacturer Oyster Yachts will hold a private event in Southampton to showcase a few of its models with dates that will coincide with the recently announced British Marine Boats 2020 show.

The builder had announced they would not be attending the 2020 Southampton International Boat Show, which was then cancelled.

Oyster’s Private View will take place at the Royal Southern Yacht Club from September 16-20 — close to Mayflower Park, the site of the British Marine show which will be held Sept. 11-20.

Both the Oyster 565 and the Oyster 745 will be on display.

Last month, the builder said a full order book for its vessels from 56 to 120 feet — plus a sub-50-foot model that’s slated to be announced later in the year — has created the need to recruit over 100 people to join the team.

The invitation-only event will have limited guest numbers to ensure a safe and secure environment and will follow rigorous social distancing and hygiene protocols, said the builder in a statement.
