Twilight Yacht Oyster 125


Twilight - One of the largest Oyster sailing yachts.

The first Oyster 125, by Dubois, has moved out of the build shed in preparation for her forthcoming launch and sailing trials in February. This magnificent yacht has been named Twilight by her owner and will be handed over early in the Spring.

David Tydeman, Oyster CEO commented: “This is a tremendous milestone for Oyster and our partnership with RMK and Dubois. The first Oyster 100 – Sarafin is now in the Caribbean and will take part in the 2013 St Barths Bucket in March. The second Oyster 100 – Penelope is currently in Malta, en route to Palma where she is available for sailing trails.  This summer we will then have our third and largest ever yacht, the Oyster 125 – Twilight sailing in the Mediterranean. Recent refits at our Southampton yard, including performance yachts such as Leopard 3 &Mari-Cha III and the restoration of classics like Cambria and Merrymaid further endorse the large yacht capabilities of the Oyster Group”.

Tulip Yacht KM Yachtbuilders

Tulip // KM Yachtbuilders // German Frers

With the 26m TULIP, yacht designer Germán Frers created a great mix between classic and modern lines.

When I saw the model of the 26 meters (88 feet) luxury yacht Tulip in April 2012 during a visit at KM Yachtbuilders in Makkum, The Netherlands I was very impressed with the design by German Frers. The elegant classical design above the water line and a modern underwater area with a lifting keel make her a fast beauty. It was love at first sight! In case you like the design too but you are looking for a bigger version, take a look at Royal Huisman’s PURA concept in its retro design.

Tulip welcomes six guests in four cabins with ensuite bathrooms and a crew of two. The owner’s cabin is forward located. The deckhouse has a dining table, a library, navigation desk, television, and a refrigerator. The interior design comes from Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design. The layout offers the opportunity to use her also as a charter yacht. There are no interior photos but the yard describes it as “a stylish, modern and luxurious interior design. Natural colors such as brown, beige, cream and grey will alternate with the intense dark orange that frequently recurs in the detailing.”.

No HD video but anyway it is good. Enjoy!

If I remember right, the yacht was built for a German entrepreneur to sail with his wife, his 3 (or 4?) children and teachers around the world. The yacht had satellite internet technology that the children were able to hold the contact with friends and classmates.
