iSNL 655/11 is one of the finest examples of the hugely successful 655 model Oyster Brokerage have had the pleasure to represent for sale. Originally Black Pearl and now in her second ownership as iSNL her maintenance schedule has been meticulous for a very discerning owner. She has never been chartered since launch and always been professionally maintained to the highest of standards by crew. The current owner had her extensively serviced and upgraded in places when he purchased her in 2013. The maple interior gives a warm and homely feel, which is accented beautifully by the Farrow and Ball ‘Drawing Room Red’ bulkhead in the saloon.

The 655 has an easily driven hull and her in-mast, cutter rig set up allows for safe cruising around the world or cruising around your favourite bays. iSNL is a must see.
