The new Oyster 625 was launched in fine style during a party at Oyster’s annual Private View event, held at St Katharine Docks in London. On a beautiful spring evening, owner John Bowley, for whom the new 625, Blue Jeannie, is his first Oyster, carried out the formalities with the traditional smashing of a bottle of champagne on her bow, assisted by his parents and family. Also present was Oyster 625 designer Rob Humphreys and his wife, Jo, who had styled the interior furnishings. Reaction to this striking, new design, which has a number of innovative new features, including triple seascape windows in the saloon, was that she is a resounding success. The many guests and media also had an opportunity to view the fleet of seven new Oyster yachts on display, including a new Oyster 72, which had been dressed for the show with a stunning collection of soft furnishings by The Studio, Harrods. The Oyster 625 will be on display later this year at the Southampton, Cannes and Genoa boat shows.
