54/15 Hedon is a superb example of the extremely successful Oyster 54. Built by Windboats in 2011 with a stunning Cherrywood interior. She has been constantly cared for by ex-Oyster staff with a no expense spared approach from the owner. With only local and minimal usage Hedon has as few as 1700 hrs on the Yanmar main engine and remarkably under 300 hrs on the generator.
With Category A – Ocean and the enclosed centre cockpit Hedon is ready for adventuring. In-mast electric furling and manual headsail furling, lead back to an electric powered primary, means she is easily handled for short handed sailing with an eye on a practical spec for longer distance sailing.
Her spacious three-cabin layout, combined with generous beam and headroom create a spacious, light and airy living area.
Viewing is highly recommended.
