Oyster restarts manufacturing
Oyster Yachts has restarted manufacturing from the company’s Wroxham site.
The company, that was bought out of administration by Richard Hadida, has begun work on an Oyster 675, the first of two yachts the company has contracts for.
The yachtbuilder has hired 50 yacht builders – all of whom previously worked for Oyster – with the hiring push expected to be scaled up as more order contracts are signed.
“It brings me real pleasure to announce that the production of Oyster yachts has recommenced in Wroxham,” said Richard Hadida, Oyster’s CEO. “Whilst we are moving into a new chapter for the business, we always knew that staying true to the company’s roots was vital.
“I am incredibly proud that we have been able to hire previous employees of the business, as it is their expertise and craftmanship which will ensure we maintain the mark of quality Oyster yachts are known for.”
He added: “As both CEO and a member of the Oyster family, I am delighted that we can now begin to fulfil existing client orders which were interrupted by the administration process, as well as look to the future with genuine confidence as we accept new contracts and return to full-scale production.”
The company has also re-launched the Oyster World Rally with 17 Oysters set to leave Vanuatu in the Pacific islands shortly, setting sail for the Whitsundays in Australia.
