New Horizon Sailing

The Yacht Details

Like most Oyster yachts Stormdancer is a Deck Saloon and built for fast but comfortable cruising.

Oysters are built to sail the oceans in style and are the preferred blue water yacht.

With her sailing performance combined with stability, high level of equipment and quality of accommodation, Stormdancer appeals equally to keen sailors and to those who want to try sailing but don’t believe they should sacrifice creature comforts to do so.

She is inspected and certified to comply with the safety requirements of the M.C.A. (a British government agency).
