Oyster Yachts is to take on 150 additional tradespeople across its yards in Southampton, Wroxham and Ashmanhaugh.

The additions will increase the boatbuilders’ headcount to more than 420 staff and will include laminators, boat builders, joiners, electricians and engineers.

“This represents a hugely exciting time for Oyster,” said owner and CEO Richard Hadida. “It is wonderful to see the brand returned to its former glory, with a full order book and a dedicated team of people in Wroxham, Southampton and Ashmanhaugh building beautiful sailing yachts, using the best of British craftsmanship.

“We look forward to welcoming many more onboard in the coming months.”

The company currently has a full order book, a transformation since it was bought by Richard in March 2018. One of the latest models is the 565 60ft yacht that is designed for a couple or young family to easily sail.
