Oyster Brokerage is delighted to offer for sale the stunning Oyster 82 Tilly Mint. This yacht has been extremely well maintained and enjoyed by her current owners. The yacht has lightly chartered to offset some of the running costs and is fully coded to MCA class 02.
Below decks, Tilly Mint provides a beautifully finished interior of mahogany, which is stylishly complimented by light soft furnishings and light coloured painted bulkheads. The quality of the joinery is quite superb.
The interior layout is also extremely practical and well thought out. As well as being naturally light and airy, the raised saloon area provides a virtually 360 degree vista, and a fantastic space for entertaining. Forward of the saloon is a lower saloon, galley and 2 cabins which can be used for guests or crew. There is also a very useful large sail locker. Going aft of the raised saloon and down a few steps, is access to the engine room. This will be an engineers delight. The engine room is below the raised saloon area and as a result offers full beam of the ship for machinery. Access to all systems for maintenance is excellent. Continuing aft is a luxurious twin and double guest cabin, each with en suite. Finally, there is the owners master cabin, which provides full beam accommodation, plenty of stowage and settee, together with the owners own access to the large aft deck.
On deck, Tilly Mint is equally impressive. Her large cockpit is divided into two areas. The twin wheel arrangement accommodates all the sail, navigation and engine controls and provides the helmsman with excellent visibility and protection. Forward of this area is the main guest cockpit which provides plenty of comfortable seating and features two large tables elegantly finished in high gloss varnish, one of which is refrigerated. This area is a superb entertaining area and also provides good protection from the elements. The deck also includes a large space forward of the mast for a large RIB/tender. There is also a huge lazarette locker aft and a sugar scoop transom, ideal for access to the water.
Finally – performance. The Oyster 82 can be managed with just two crew thanks to her full hydraulic push-button sail operation. She is an absolute delight to sail, she is fast, safe and well balanced. The 82 is a true global yacht and is equipped to go anywhere.
Tilly Mint has been skipper maintained under MCA Code for Cat 2 and Commercial use since late 2012 and has been lightly used for around 10 weeks per year since 2013 including about 3 weeks high quality charter per year during 2013, 2014 and 2015 mainly in the Eastern Mediterranean between Turkey and Greece. She has been professionally serviced and de-commissioned each winter and between summer uses. Tilly Mint has a current mid term surveyor endorsed MCA Cat 2 Coding certificate valid until Nov 2016, which includes endorsed MLC 2006 compliance. She is currently VAT paid and registered as a Pleasure Vessel.
Tilly Mint is an impressive yacht all round, and only for sale due to a change in the owners business plans. In the broker’s opinion, she is sensibly priced and worthy of viewings.
