The owners of R5 hull #2 love their boat so much that they have decided to order the first R6 which is currently in design development. As such, the family’s cruising plans have been adjusted while they wait for the R6 to be delivered next year and they’ve asked us to assist in selling Oxygen in the interim. We will be treating the sale as a trade-in and she will be sold with full manufacturers’ support and warranty. Oxygen was launched at the end of 2020 and has been based in Cape Town while the owners have been getting her ready during the strong summer winds for their long term cruising plan. If purchased with Cape Town delivery, there is the possibility of the yard undertaking minor custom work for her new owner while she is in the area.
To say that Oxygen is well equipped is a gross understatement - she is the yard’s third electric catamaran and without a doubt the most capable. The Torqeedo Deep Blue system is the gold standard in electric yacht propulsion, and for good reason as the R6 will be getting the exact same system. Oxygen was built in epoxy eglass with extensive carbon reinforcing and construction, including the entire cabintop and all spars. She has the galley and salon volume of a much larger yacht and with her twin forward sailing cockpit doors together with her large aft cockpit doors, she possesses amazing flow and energy as one moves fore and aft from the overhanging unstayed carbon longeron down the centre via her secure sailing handling position, all the way back to her huge dock like stern scoops.
