1 . CONSTRUCTION
HULL NUMBER Oyster 575/26C.
HULL CONSTRUCTION The hull is a composite construction, moulded using a combination of vinylester and polyester resin with the outer topside finish in a white special NPG gelcoat.
Laminate material comprises a combination of E-glass, Kevlar and carbon fibre
specially designed for the yacht by the Oyster Design Team’s own structural
engineers. This custom laminate offers significant weight savings, strength and
stiffness advantages over a normal GRP construction, carbon for weight and
stiffness, Kevlar for impact resistance.
The topside laminate incorporates a high-tech, balsa-cored, E-glass/carbon
sandwich above the waterline, for additional strength, stiffness and insulation.
Below the waterline, the hull features a monolithic (single-skin) composite laminate,
with an Aramid/Kevlar layer, reinforced with a matrix of stringers and floors.
Combined with BS1088 standard marine-ply structural bulkheads, this produces a
robust structure, with excellent strength to weight qualities and proven longevity.
Additional reinforcements are included in the way of the keel recess, the keel
longitudinals, mast bulkhead, P-bracket, forestay and hull stringers.
Limber holes and/or tubes are installed at appropriate points. Stringers, bulkhead
landings and floors are formed over a non-structural, inert, polyurethane foam.
HULL FINISH ‘Grey Beige’ hull with cove line and double boot top lines in ‘White.’
DECK CONSTRUCTION The Oyster 575 deck styling has modern flowing lines providing sleek looks, inside and out, whilst maintaining the Oyster trademark and reputation for a light and airy deck saloon.
Moulded in GRP with balsa core.
DECK FINISH Weather deck, cockpit seats and sole areas finished with quarter-sawn teak planking, laid using epoxy adhesive with no visible fastenings.
Fore and aft coachroof tops and cockpit coamings finished in white gelcoat, with
white, non-slip deck paint applied to appropriate panels. Teak fitted on top of pickle
The deck edge incorporates a bulwark, which facilitates relatively flat side decks.
The top of the bulwark has a clean GRP finish, giving a modern and stylish rolled
edge, enhancing the yacht’s visual appearance with a graceful sheer line.
KEEL Super shoal draft keel with centreboard.
The keel is a long, shallow profile GRP moulded stub with lead ballast bolted to it.
Both are made with a central slot that allows the centreboard to swing up inside
the lead fin and GRP stub/box. The centreboard keel is designed to combine very
shallow draft with good sailing performance.
CENTREBOARD The centreboard plate is pivoted on a bronze pin and set into a low friction, bearing sleeve. The pivot pin may be removed for maintenance. The pivoting board and lifting mechanism have been designed to minimize risk of serious damage, in the event of hitting an underwater obstruction.
The centreboard plate is raised and lowered by an electrically operated hydraulic
ram installed vertically in the engine room compartment. It is connected to the
upper trailing edge by Vectran (or similar) line running over bronze, large diameter
sheaves. Operation of the hydraulic ram is by push-buttons sited at one steering
pedestal. There is a ‘Board UP’/’Board DOWN’ position indicator, together with a lift
mechanism fail-safe system. Sheaves and lifting line are accessible for removal and
NB. The centreboard position must not be adjusted whilst the board is under load,
in sailing conditions. The vessel must be slowed to less than 4 knots in order
to release sideways pressure from the board, pin and casing assembly prior to
operating the hydraulic lift.
RUDDER Twin balanced spade rudders each with a substantial glass fibre blade, foam-filled, and bonded to a carbon fibre rudder stock. Each rudder incorporates top and
The tops of the rudder stocks terminate at deck level and are covered by a screw-in
deck plate. This facilitates the use of a stainless steel emergency tiller from a usable
position on deck. The emergency tiller has stowage provided within the lazarette
STERN DESIGN Extended aft deck and counter stern transom configuration, with hydraulic dropdown bathing platform.
The drop-down transom is raised and lowered by hydraulic rams powered via a
hydraulic power pack, giving an open platform for boarding from a tender or for
water sports. A push button control is used to operate the platform rams. The
platform surface is planked with teak decking.
Hook on stainless steel bathing/boarding ladder with teak treads to aft edge of
swimming platform, which can be stowed in the lazarette.
