The Oyster 66 has a low centre of gravity keel and a powerful sailplan. Cutter gear is standard, which allows for a useful choice of sail combinations depending on wind speed. A pair of jumper struts has eliminated the usual requirement for check stays on this type of rig, making handling even easier. A self-tacking staysail option is available. The 66 has an unusually large cockpit with twin wheels and easy access to the aft deck. The helmsman is ideally positioned, with excellent visibility to sail and dock the yacht with many of the sail handling controls within easy reach. Careful optimisation by the design team, empowered by Oyster's integrated CAD system, has produced a hull with a sleek outboard profile but with enough volume to allow full standing headroom under the cockpit floor. There is sufficient headroom within the deck saloon area for a workable installation of engine and machinery under the deck saloon floor. The combination of these features has allowed a centre-line passageway aft with two double or twin guest cabins port and starboard and a large owner's cabin, with its own companionway to the deck, aft. The galley, which is open to the saloon, is placed forward of the saloon at an unobtrusive lower level with plentiful counter space and stowage. Opposite there's a choice of configuration, but many owners will opt for a pair of chairs and a ship's office in this area. Forward, the Oyster 66 has two further twin or double cabins with their own heads. One of these makes a first class guest cabin while the other is ideal for crew.
