Super Yacht Oyster 125 has been released from the mould at RMK after the post curing process in their purpose built 40 metre oven. The sailing yacht now holds the world record in the largest single continuous infusion at nearly 6.3 tonnes of resin flowing in around for hours.
After moulding process was completed the hull and secondary structure were post-cured in a giant oven at 60ºC for 48 hours to give the structure ultimate temperature stability. The whole process was controlled and monitored by computer using thermo couplers built into the mould to check temperatures within the laminate at multiple points within the moulding.
The sleek deck saloon superstructure of the Oyster 125 allows an uninterrupted view to the bow from the twin helm positions, which are safely located well aft of the very large and comfortable leisure cockpit, and which is protected by a fixed bimini over its entire length.
Aft of the helms is a private access to the owners’ suite and a spacious aft deck leads down to a generous bathing platform and dinghy dock. Below deck there is a vast, split-level, living area enjoying panoramic views from the upper saloon, together with an intimate lounge, and separate dining area at the lower level. Aft of this living area are four spacious cabins, all with their own private heads and shower. These cabins offer a far greater volume than those found within yachts of the same overall length built in aluminium, as the composite structure does not require the substantial structural hull and deck frames found in alloy construction.
Forward of the lower saloon, separated by a privacy door, is the well-planned and fitted galley, crew mess and three crew cabins
Oyster 125 will be introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show 2010 and is due to be delivered to her owners in 2011.
