ARETHA, a hand built OYSTER 53, is a true blue water cruising boat with an amazing history and a future waiting to be written by you.

The OYSTER 53 offers sumptuous accommodation combined with ocean going qualities. Her sprightly performance sees her glide across oceans with a generous sail plan. The perfect yacht for cruising the world?s oceans with the family offering seven berths in four cabins and masses of storage. Aretha benefits from a fully battened mainsail and is highly specified in terms of options for blue water cruising.

The most recent owners are the Cravens - their circumnavigation on Aretha with their three children under the age of ten was ,documented in their best seller book, Where the Magic Happens published by Bloomsbury/ Adlard Coles and covered extensively in mainstream media.

Aretha has been a truly magical boat for us and has been the boat for bringing our dreams to life. She is a truly wonderful and safe yacht to sail and live aboard as a family crew whilst living in real luxury. We have experienced countless memorable sunsets, sunrises both at sea and at anchor in far flung tropical destinations. Like all 53?s she is really easy to handle yet will slip along at good speed in the lightest of winds. In bad weather she is absolutely rock solid yet will still deliver a good turn of speed when reefed down.

With our children growing older and looking to a range of diverse interests, it is time for us to pass on the stewardship of this magnificent boat to the next crew for more adventures at sea.
