This yacht is much more than just an Oyster 655. Built for an owner who wanted to cross oceans quickly and safely with family and friends and to do well regatta sailing internationally, she has performed faultlessly. Her maple interior, stainless steel detailing and Franchini fittings below are uber cool and she has been carefully maintained through life. Her owner will not unwrap her again. Therefore he has instructed that all offers will be considered and that ROULETTE is in the market to be sold now.
