About this Oyster 72
Crazy Horse is extremely well set up on deck for fast, comfortable cruising as well as the occasional race. The large cockpit retains the Oyster 72 DNA of a safe and comfortable environment with easy access to sail handling and plenty of room for entertaining. Stepping down below, you have a spacious and luxurious interior with all the features associated with a thoroughbred blue-water cruiser. With ten berths in four cabins, there is ample room for family cruising with a permanent crew and being able to enjoy the thrill of racing as and when it suits.
Striking Rob Humphreys designed Oyster 72 Crazy Horse is unique to the Oyster fleet. Commissioned in 2005 by an extremely experienced yachtsman 72/02 has SP Technologies engineered carbon hull and superstructure along with foam cored non structural bulkheads, furniture and sole boards making her fantastically light and incredibly strong. Crazy Horse has all the usual comfort and luxury associated with an Oyster 72. Her current owner acquired her in 2015 and set about an extensive refit which has included a new teak deck, beautifully custom built hand crafted forward cabin arrangement, extensive hull composite work along with a brand new paint job and many other upgrades from her original spec. The structural hull composite work was approved by an experienced surveyor.

Crazy Horse is perfect for someone who enjoys performance sailing yet still demands safe, comfortable and luxurious cruising. We highly recommend viewing her to fully understand the extent of the refit and quality of finish of this diverse Oyster 72. With the refit now complete, the owner has moved on to his next project and wishes for an early sale. Offers will be entertained.
