Fox’s Yacht Service – a new service facility for Oyster and other Quality Yachts

posted on 13th March 2018 within

We are pleased to introduce a new business, Fox’s Yacht Service Ltd, and announce that with immediate effect we are now able to provide a complete after sales support service to the owners of Oyster yachts regardless of their size, age or location.

Fox’s Yacht Service will be managed by Sarah Harmer who, until recently, was the long serving After Sales Manager at Oyster. Sarah is unique in her knowledge of Oyster yachts and will be supported by some experienced ex Oyster marine professionals, together with a trusted network of suppliers and service providers. Our mission is to establish Fox’s Yacht Service as the one-stop first choice for owners and crew looking for reliable service and support at reasonable prices.

Fox’s Yacht Service will be based at Fox’s Marina & Boatyard, Ipswich, which has been the family home of Oyster for over 40 years. Most Oysters were commissioned and rigged by Fox’s whose knowledge of these yachts is unsurpassed and who continue to offer a comprehensive range of services for these and other quality yachts.

The services offered by Fox’s Yacht Service won’t be restricted to our Fox’s Marina HQ because Sarah and her team have an international network of trusted contacts, which will enable Fox’s Yacht Service to offer prompt, local support across a wide range of the world’s cruising grounds.

We will be reaching out to yachts on the Oyster World Rally to offer the fleet support as required. Depending on who acquires the Oyster brand, and their intentions, we would also like to rekindle the Oyster family spirit with some events, but that is for the future.

With prevailing uncertainty about the future of the Oyster brand, we are pleased to be able to assure all Oyster owners that top quality after sales service is available to them direct from Fox’s Yacht Service.
