Meteorite is a stunning yacht which is perfect for cruising the world’s oceans.
Designed from the outset with a greater emphasis on performance, this 655 is cutter rigged, with a hydraulic in-mast furling mainsail and twin hydraulic furling systems for both headsails. This makes Meteorite easy to handle, whilst offering the benefits of a generous sail plan.
Below deck, the American cherry interior joinery and teak soles are complimented beautifully with the stylish and contemporary furnishings. With eight berths in four cabins, a vast saloon and well facilitated galley, there is copious amount of space to travel in comfort and in style.
With extensive refit works completed in 2016 and 2019 with Oyster Palma, and additional works completed in New Zealand, she is in a great condition. Having recently completed a circumnavigation as part of the Oyster World Rally, Meteorite is perfectly equipped to undertake her next adventure. Currently located in Palma, she is a hot prospect that is definitely worth viewing!
