Blue Horizon represents a superb opportunity to acquire a well proven 2010 Oyster 655 with a successful Balearic charter record. Blue Horizon features all the home comforts one would expect from a yacht of this calibre: generator, watermaker, air conditioning, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, even an ice machine.

Blue Horizon has an in-mast furling cutter rig, complete with full hydraulic sail handling package, electric winches, bow thruster and autopilot, ensuring she can be sailed short-handed. Small details, such as the carbon spinnaker pole, hint towards the performance aspect of the 655. This is a powerful, easily-driven hull which will satisfy even the keenest of sailors!
