We are excited to offer our beautiful Oyster 825 "Champagne Hippy" for charter. The vessel was fully refitted during 2019 to the highest standards, and then went on to compete in the world famous ARC race crossing the line 13th. This remarkable sailing boat will be initially moored in Saint Lucia during the European winter and in Palma during the summer.
This Oyster 825 sailing yacht has a unique extended rear deck to facilitate a garage, providing the ‘superyacht experience’ in both style and comfort, with an impressive performance to match.
A powerful yacht with clean, easily driven hull lines by Humphreys Yacht Design and styling and engineering from the Oyster Design team, the 825 can achieve 250 miles per day on long passages without drawing breath.
The 825 is a blue water sailing yacht designed for adventure and performance. This iconic Oyster has a practical and spacious cockpit to comfortably separate guests from sail handling and operation, whilst her generous flush decks forward and aft provide the perfect spot for enjoying the action, or simply relaxing; perfect for the sailer who enjoys sailing the yacht with the balance of support from a professional crew.
Featuring striking contemporary styling, the 825 has clear deck-lounging areas as well as providing generous guest accommodation with a full width luxury master, a double cabin and a 3-berth cabin aft too. There is a further forward double cabin giving the total to 8-9 guests. The aft of the boat has space space for up to 4 professional crew to discreetly run the yacht, but for normal charters, Champagne Hippy is easily managed with 2 crew. Below deck she houses a large, full-width saloon giving a remarkable feeling of light and space that is further enhanced by the side-sliding glass companionway. From every angle she is refined and elegant.
Champagne Hippy complies with the Marine Coastguard Agency (MCA) Stability Category 0. This is the highest level of coding provided by the MCA, confirming the yachts capability of unrestricted ocean cruising worldwide. To achieve this coding the yacht has undergone stringent build and design requirements and its equipment and general fit-out have met the demanding levels needed for this category status. To maintain this compliance code the boat will be surveyed regularly and manned by personnel who hold specific, certified, compliance levels allowing them to operate a Category 0 yacht. This means Champagne Hippy is ready to take anyone anywhere in world with the confidence they are on a fully compliant vessel and crew.
