2006 Oyster LD43



VARUNA is a great example of an exceptional 2006 Oyster 43 LD.  The Oyster 43 LD is a rare and beautiful motor yacht, powered by twin Yanmar 440HP Diesels.  She is powered with the twin Hamilton Jet propulsion system providing superior high speed sea keeping abilities as well as great maneuverability around the docks.  She offers a spacious salon area and a well equipped galley making for the perfect weekend cruiser.  The accommodations include a double cabin forward plus two settee berths.  This boat offers stunning good looks both inside and out.  The hull was repainted in 2014 making her show like new. This is a new Spring listing and we are looking forward to showing this yacht at our Osterville location.
