Building upon his experience with his earlier Oyster 56 and 53 designs, Rob Humphreys was given a straightforward design brief - to draw a yacht of just under fifty feet with three cabins, whilst offering outstanding performance and a generous load carrying capacity for bluewater cruising.

Compared to the Holman and Pye designed 485 which she replaced, the 49 is a much ‘bigger’ yacht, with greatly enhanced interior volume, a longer waterline, increased sail area and displacement, all of which combine to give great confidence in all sea and weather conditions.

We launched fifteen examples between 2001 and 2007, so the 49 remains a rarity on the brokerage market. Nonetheless she is an excellent proposition for those whose cruising areas are better suited to a yacht of less than fifty feet, or those who prefer the simpler handling and lower maintenance costs of this size of yacht.

Ellen Mae is a late model 49, with a beautiful dark blue hull, and simple sloop rig with in-mast furling mainsail and furling genoa, all controlled from the cockpit. Below decks she has hand crafted American light oak joinery and sleeps up to six in three cabins. Her generous saloon is enhanced by the Oyster deck saloon, which gives a light and airy feel.

Her first owner sailed her around UK waters, and sold after just three years, the second owner based her in the Mediterranean, but has sailed Scottish waters more recently. Ellen Mae is a great example of a 49, and would repay an early viewing.
