Bare Necessities is a luxury yacht available for private and corporate charter. A large, powerful Oyster yacht, she offers high level luxury sailing. Available during the winter of 2018 and the spring/ summer 2019 in Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca, Sardinia and Corsica.
Bare Necessities is a stunning 82’ custom built Oyster, designed to deliver a luxurious sailing experience. From first glance you will notice the stunning hull colour of metallic blue with metallic silver boot top and cover lines. Her size and uncluttered teak deck is perfect for entertaining. The large cockpit with two tables can comfortably seat guests for eating ‘al fresco’.
The guest cockpit has four deck computer screens capable of displaying navigation information to guests. The guest area is over 3m long and has a clear central walkway aft, giving access to the helm positions and side decks. Unlike most 82s, Bare Necessities has a custom built archway above centre
cockpit with integrated lights and custom carbon framed windscreen to protect the main companionway providing excellent shelter as well as sun protection.
The stern design incorporates a bathing platform trimmed for easy access to the stern deck and
swimming ladder. A custom made dinghy platform and carbon davit makes launching and recovering the dinghy extremely easy. In many respects, Bare Necessities represents the most advanced Oyster built to
date, the majority of her electronic equipment being typical of much larger vessels.
Her powerful cutter rig with carbon Smart boom, top quality laminate sails with mainbeing fully battened, hydraulic furlers all go to provide exceptional performance with minimum effort.
Below deck, her maple interior makes her very light and makes for a very open feel.
The upper saloon offers excellent views with large deck saloon windows and has a 42”
screen neatly flushed in.
There is a four-sided wraparound settee surrounding a square, custom, swivel and expanding table which accommodates up to eight guests to dine together in comfort. The lower saloon has a large L-shaped settee with another folding table. This is a wonderful area to read, play games or watch movies on the 32in screen. Bare Necessities provides spacious accommodation for six guests in three cabins,
while separate accommodation for crew is provided forward.
The master cabin has a spacious centre line queen berth. In addition, there are two identical guest cabins also aft with twin berths. All cabins throughout the yacht have a private en-suite head and shower. Every cabin has a computer screen providing an independent entertainment system, or through the network, can become part of the vessels navigation display.
Additional aft berths are available in the form of a sofa berth and Pullman berth. The yacht is currently operated and immaculately maintained, with equipment constantly upgraded by professional and fastidious skipper Joey Compton.
