Hen­rik Ny­man: Oys­ter 745

Yachting World - - 60 Footers -

Ny­man has sailed all his life on a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent sized boats, in­clud­ing own­ing and char­ter­ing var­i­ous yachts and is now up­grad­ing from an Oys­ter 625 to a 745 for blue­wa­ter cruis­ing with friends and fam­ily. Why move to a yacht that needs crew?

“Size alone is not a fac­tor. For me, qual­ity, en­gi­neer­ing and func­tion were my driv­ers… I thought 60ft was the max­i­mum I could han­dle with­out crew, but in fact I feel that the 745 should be no trou­ble mainly due to very well thought-out func­tions and en­gi­neer­ing. Han­dling is one part, but also you want crew for com­fort, to go to the su­per­mar­ket, some meals, for­mal­i­ties etc... I can sail ba­si­cally alone but I want a good deck­hand, mainly for safety pur­poses and for main­te­nance as well.

“My big­gest con­cern is that the equip­ment in­stalled does not meet the same qual­ity as the yacht it­self. My ex­pe­ri­ence from the 625 is that the ma­jor­ity if not all war­ranty is­sues are caused by third party in­stal­la­tions.”
