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 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 4.8m jet tender, new EC6 carbon rigging, hull paint, interior upholstery’s and the latest onboard IT/AV systems to name just a few!  Turning heads in the Caribbean this Winter, KARIBU provides four en-suite guest cabins and sleeps 8 in true comfort. She is MCA Cat2 commercially compliant and has already proven exceptionally popular during her first Mediterranean and Caribbean charter seasons. 4 crew members are well accommodated in 2 spacious cabins. Her 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 stand out example in her class. KARIBU is also VAT paid and currently registered in Guernsey, Channel Islands.
