Buying and Oyster 56 . I think a good choice to live aboard!!

Now I'm trying to negotiate for an Oyster at Fort Lauderdale with the aim to navigate twice a year for a couple of months each. I think that will be a good choice.
For sure I have to hire a skipper to help navigate to BVI.
Could you recommend me where I find a good election, too?? Thank you.

Oyster 56 is an excellent choice for livaboard. Easily handled by two people if it has an in mast furling system. Hire a skipper from PYD (professional Yacht Delivery) in the UK for your first adventure to show you how everything works, then you'll do just fine on your own.

PYD can be contacted directly or through the Oyster Brokerage in the UK.

Sure, it has an in mast furling system.
Next BVI, hope we could reach the Mediterranean
