Oyster 885 KARIBU is an exceptional example of Oysters flagship model. Purchased in 2021 by her current owner, the yacht was entirely refit and re-launched in May 2022 with a stunning new livery on show. During the refit no stone was left unturned. KARIBU is absolutely a turnkey option for a prospective buyer. In the knowledge that all onboard systems have been overhauled and attended to, KARIBU offers complete peace of mind and certainty. She has new sails, a new 4.8m jet tender, new EC6 carbon rigging, new hull paint, new interior upholsteries and the latest onboard IT/AV systems – in total this was a €2m+ refit. KARIBU provides four en-suite guest cabins and sleeps 8 in true luxury. She is MCA Cat2 commercially compliant and has already proven exceptionally popular during the Mediterranean and Caribbean charter seasons. 4 crew members are well accommodated in 2 spacious cabins. The contemporary interior was beautifully re-designed in 2022 by the multi-award winning interior superyacht stylists Design Unlimited, UK. The yachts vibrant colours and use of luxurious materials truly make Karibu a standout example in her class. KARIBU is also VAT paid and currently registered in Guernsey, Channel Islands.
