Looked at an Oyster today

I'm exploring options here in Oz and took a look at a 2003 Oyster 42 today. They certainly are well-appointed and look great!

Z,
Is that the Deck Saloon 42 on Yacht Hub ?
Nice bit of kit. What they are seriously asking ? It's listed at over half a mill Oz Buckazoids.
Oysters are most certainly a seriously lovely boat. Possibly the best build quality of anything including Swans.
I've seen that DS42 out on the harbour and she looks fabulous on the water.

Wombat - yes, it was the 42DS in Woolwich and the boat is in very good internal & external condition and the list of equipment and extras is very complete - it has everything one would or could need to circumnavigate and lots of spares. It does have quite a bit less space than the 43DS Jeanneau but is much more solidly built and pleasing to the eye. Just about the only thing I didn't like was the teak deck arrangement. I did read the owner's weblogs on their travels and it seems that they did have significant issues with the rigging, losing either the forestay or shrouds in light weather and then having to deal with it in Tahiti.
I think that the price is quite negotiable and it has already been dropped (they are asking in GBP, not AUS$, so the price varies daily).

Do you have a URL for the blog ? I'd be interested in reading it. Is the DS on the marina at woolwich or on a mooring somewhere ?

Trouble with boats today, they just don't make 'em like they used to.

I love the tagline - Ye Olde Peter Gabriel Genesis is among my favorite bands.
The yacht is tied up to the marina dock and their blog is at http://www.sapphireoflondon.org/
