Comparing Spirit of Australia with a new build Oyster 495 which at 52"8" is the same size as Spirit, the 8/22 BOAT magazine article introducing the Oyster states, for example, "The boat has a keel-stepped mast. Trimming on or easing out is no more than a button press. This gives the Oyster a bigger boat feel. If the extra $194,000 for this set-up is no obstacle, it must be put on the wish list for cruising."
Spirit has the same engineering and her Reckman hydraulics are double the size of the Oysters. For the current asking price, you would also get the sailboat. If you wanted the complete Oyster without the rig described brace yourself to pay "approximately $1.51 million without optional bow (and stern) thrusters."
In closing, " ... it is obvious the Oyster is going to be a comfortable passagemaker that should be able to touch on 175 nautical-mile days in tradewinds and gobble up ocean passages." Having sailed Spirit from Victoria, B.C. to Stuart, Florida, with many, many shorter passages in between, we know this to be true for Spirit.
If you are considering blue water cruising or just hanging on the dock in an oceans capable luxury sailing yacht until you do then keep more than $1.3 million in your bank account and visit Spirit first. Step inside and see if she does not match the Oyster in overall feel and comfort. The layouts are nearly identical.
