47' Oyster 47 2002 SKELLUM


SKELLUM is a pristine example of the highly regarded Oyster 47 that benefited from a major refit in 2017. Built for world cruising shorthanded to Lloyd’s A1 construction standards, she has a spacious 3-stateroom layout with workshop and huge lazarette. In 2017 her owner spent over $100,000 refitting her with all new topside and deck paint, deck nonskid, Volvo saildrive, navigation computer, mainsheet traveller, hydraulic backstay adjuster, headsail furler, dodger, life raft and much more. Owner’s plans have now changed and SKELLUM represents an incredible opportunity for anyone looking for a proven bluewater cruiser/racer that is absolutely ready to go.

Very spacious 3 stateroom layout. High-quality finish in teak, with Oyster "Millenium" styling. Checkerboard-style teak cabin sole with inset black border. Deck salon design keeps interior bright and incorporates excellent ventilation.

Starting forward, there is a wide V-berth with filler piece and cushion, under-berth stowage and a hanging locker. Fiddled shelves port and starboard above berths.

Just aft, to port, is a second guest cabin with bunk berths, plenty of storage and a hanging locker. Opposite this cabin is a head and shower.

Further aft and up a step is the main salon. To port is an L-shaped settee with fold-over teak table. To starboard is a second settee. There are lee cloths and a well-hidden foot well for the starboard settee, making it long enough to sleep on. There is abundant storage throughout this area, as the tanks are situated below the cabin sole. There is bottle storage and a drawer incorporated into the table pedestal. Aft and to starboard is the navigation area, with a forward-facing seat and large nav table befitting an offshore cruising yacht. There is stowage for half-folded Admiralty charts.

Just aft is a utility room/workshop/stowage locker. This doubles as a sail locker (access from both the salon and cockpit) and provides great engine access. The washing machine is housed here. The space also functions as a wet locker.

Aft, to port, is the walk-through galley and then the master stateroom. There is an island-type queen sized berth, slightly offset to starboard. There are ample drawers and lockers and an en-suite head and shower.
