Remarks:

With her simulated clinker hull, the Oyster 17 is a pretty and traditionally styled, East Coast trailer sailer. And with her shallow draft and lifting keel, she’s ideal for gunkholing and exploring the rivers and estuaries of the Norfolk Broads and Norfolk/Suffolk/Essex coasts. Sold by the North Norfolk boat builder, Charlie Ward, as a part completed hull, this example is understood to have then been finished and fitted out to a high standard by a professional boat builder for the first owner. Complete with a good roadworthy trailer, she is freshly antifouled and ready to tow and sail!
