Yacht description

"Luchtloper" is an Oyster 37 and built in 1983 by Oyster Marine in England. The design is by Holman & Pye and built in GRP under the one-ton formula (IOR).

Oyster Marine yachts are really well built and have sustainable construction and excellent quality in GRP and cell coat. The Whitlock steering wheel mechanism controls light and directly under all conditions. An emergency tiller is present.

The sailing characteristics are as you would expect from a race/cruiser. Especially upwind she is formidable.
