Available for Sale53′ Oyster 5353' 2003 Oyster 

Launched in 2003, "Ratty's Wisdom" is a great example of a yacht that has been configured to deliver.

Below decks, she offers great versatility and potential capability for long-distance cruising with 3 spacious cabins, and an extra fourth featuring a convenient single cabin/workshop. Despite being the smallest Oyster with a 3 cabin layout, the fully equipped galley, and spacious entertaining space make the Oyster 53 feel much bigger than her size. Beautifully appointed in teak with neutral palette tones throughout, she is adaptable and equipped for anything.
