G5 styling. Cutter rigged with slab reefing, providing the perfect round the world set up, equally great for coastal family cruising. Teak interior joinery.
56/68 Sionna is a stunning example and one of the last of the hugely successful Oyster 56s. She is
cutter rigged with slab reefing, providing the perfect round the world set up, which is equally great for coastal family cruising. The G5 styling, teak laid deck and teak capping rail, are complemented perfectly with the beautifully hand crafted teak interior joinery below deck, offering a stylish and contemporary feeling throughout.
With eight berths in four cabins, including two spacious double and two twin cabins, Sionna is
perfect for accommodating guests, and potentially crew, in both comfort and style.
Sionna had a refit in 2017 by us here in Oyster Palma, and has been carefully maintained by the
Oyster team and the owner ever since, and it shows. Recent works have included new running rigging, new domestic bank and service batteries, new chargers, a new alternator and a new premium model tender and outboard. This combined with all the service works being completed on the engine, watermaker, air conditioning, steering and sails, makes her perfect for anyone who wants to take on a new adventure.
Run solely by a family, an adventurous couple with two young children, who have recently enjoyed a great Summer season cruising the Mediterranean. Sionna is due to compete in the Oyster Palma
Regatta at the end of September, before they move her to Barcelona, in a marina in close proximity
to the airport, for the Winter. She has never been chartered so is in a great condition.
Viewing highly recommended.
