Deservedly Oyster's most popular model with 75 launched between 1998 and 2010, her Humphreys design has stood the test of time. Very strong single skin construction with very substantial ribs and stringers, lead keel and skeg-hung rudder. Quovadis was 56 hull 2 and built for the then owner of Oyster. She has a keel stepped carbon rig and Reckman powered furling for her head-sails. She was very substantially refitted in 2018 in the UK we have detailed invoices for the re-fit which included a new Onan 9Kw generator, sea-cocks, mast paint, covers and forward looking sonar. Four cabins, two with centre-line doubles and two twins remains a major selling point of the design. Quovadis has all the creature comforts and detailing you would expect from an Oyster. Ideal for the ARC or further. For many more photos, information or to arrange a viewing please contact central agents Tristan Abery (English, Spanish, Russian) and Stephen Abery (English, French, German).
