The 825 was officially launched at the show, which opened on January 18 and runs until this Sunday, and has attracted more than admiring glances, with a Russian client putting pen to paper.

Oyster has sold more than 1,000 yachts over its 40-year history and currently has more than 30 vessels on its order book.

Chief executive David Tydeman said the success of the 825 at Dusseldorf represented “an exciting start to 2014”.

“Making her world premiere here at Europe’s largest boat show, this sleek model and new breed of Oyster yacht, designed by Rob Humphreys is attracting many visitors and is already making a significant impact on the Oyster order book, bolstered by this latest contract,” he added.
