The story of the keel loss of S/Y POLINA STAR III and the liquidation of the Oyster Yachts from the owner's view.

It is a big image disaster when a sailing yacht loses a keel – the result is no stability and mostly leaks with water inflow. But the casket nail is the communication with the owner. The spontaneous liquidation of a good and big brand in the sailing and superyacht industry raises many questions. At the end of 2017, Oyster Yachts announced a full order book.

The owner of POLINA STAR III, Mr. Alexander V. Ezhkov and his team investigate also in the reasons of the liquidation on their website.

“This website was launched on 16 February 2018, following the liquidation announcement of Oyster Yachts. It was created to shed light on the practices of the Oyster Yachts owners and management.”

I met great people at Oyster. Marketing and PR supported me at any times and also the members of the yacht crew they sailed yachts to exhibitions were very kind. It was a pleasure and I hope to meet the people with other brands again.
