Every inch an Oyster, the new Oyster 495 features instantly recognisable design cues – deck saloon, seascape windows and flush decks, combined with exceptional sailing performance.

Oyster 495 50 Foot Sailing Yacht Boat at anchor

Unmistakably Oyster

The latest collaboration between humphreys yacht design and our in-house design studio, the new 495 50 foot sailing yacht is an evolution of five decades of iconic oyster design cues..

Her clean hull lines and wide beam aft are the foundation for the outstanding space and capabilities of the Oyster 495. She incorporates many of our big yacht features in a compact 50 foot yacht. Instantly recognisable as an Oyster, the Oyster 495 features our pioneering deck saloon, protected cockpit and helm stations, wraparound and forward-opening saloon windows. Flush decks, signature triple vertical seascape windows, foredeck skyscape windows, a powerful plumb bow and extended bowsprit complete the look.

We were the first boat builder to create a truly ergonomically designed cockpit and helm positions, with sprayhood and optional bimini for additional protection. Details like the cockpit table, with optional built-in refrigerated drinks locker, that comfortably seats up to eight people, is just one of the many triumphs of Oyster design thinking.

The Oyster 495 consistently delivers powerful, responsive and rewarding performance in safety and comfort.

Nine knots is her happy place and her well-balanced, stable wide-beamed hull form gives you confidence to keep the sails up in almost any conditions. Twin rudders make her light and agile on the helm, offering fingertip control even in the most boisterous seas. Her low centre of gravity keel offers substantial displacement for enhanced stability and handling, and she moves easily in cruising trim. Carrying significant sail power, you are guaranteed consistently fast cruising speeds and the optional sprayhood and bimini provide excellent protection from the sun, whilst improving all-round comfort.

This 50 foot sailboat for sale offers the range of innovative automated sailing technology. This includes in-mast furling with push-button controls and B&G instruments, all operated from the helm positions, making her the perfect choice for couples or young families.

The Oyster 495 features lots of space to relax and share good times with friends and family.

Her wide beam offers unexpected returns in space, both above and below decks – something you will not find on any other 50 foot sailboat for sale. The beautifully styled centre cockpit is perfect for entertaining up to eight people for alfresco dining. The aft pushpit seats are a great place to see all the action under sail. The wide teak deck at the stern and flush foredeck offer generous entertaining and sunbathing spaces.

The transom houses an innovative, push-button operated, cassette boarding/bathing platform. A choice of subtle mood lighting and integrated audio speakers let you set the tone for entertaining guests under the stars.

New generation interiors feature modern styling, integrated technology and equipment for truly luxurious entertaining and living spaces.

Oyster Yachts 495 Interior Luxury

Contemporary luxury and comfort

The oyster 495 benefits from our new generation luxury, contemporary interiors that elevates her above the best 50 foot yachts..

With four interior designed themes, 495’s interiors set a new standard in her class. The well-equipped, seaworthy, u-shaped galley, saloon and cabins are well-proportioned, comfortable and luxurious. Her wide beam aft offers unexpected space compared to any other 50 foot yacht for sale.

She is eminently practical, making her perfect for liveaboard adventures. Intelligent interior space planning, combining insights and the acclaimed craftsmanship from our larger yachts, makes use of every inch of hull volume. The tasteful choice of materials, fabrics and integrated technology throughout, along with modern styling, creates truly luxurious entertaining and living spaces. The impressive owner’s cabin, with its deep luxury mattress, has excellent headroom and signature triple seascape windows, creating an amazing feeling of space and light throughout the new Oyster 495. Our new mood lighting system creates a perfect interior environment.

Like all our yachts, the new Oyster 495 is handcrafted by master craftspeople with a meticulous attention to detail, and a deep sense of pride and passion.

The learnings of half a century of designing and building bluewater cruisers feed into every detail, and the insights of our owners, skippers and crew, sailors and our own team help fine-tune every aspect of the design and build. The result is a unique combination of design, technology, engineering and hand-crafted build quality. Beautiful hardwoods run throughout every inch of this exquisite 50 foot sailboat, in everything from hand-built furniture to intuitively placed grab rails. This focus on detail reveals itself in the beautiful, hand-crafted cabinetry and the easily accessible, carefully labelled cables and pipework that run behind the scenes to make maintenance tasks simple.

The Oyster 495 is a truly connected 50 foot yacht with all the latest technology you need to stay in touch, however remote your location.

Not only does it make her an ideal liveaboard yacht, but it also makes her a work-aboard yacht. Every system is chosen for its ruggedness and fitness for purpose. The chart table is a technology hub, featuring an optional, innovative, foldout, integrated PC; lift-top desk; plotter; VHF and SSB radios; power management; generator control; switchboard; and plenty of power sockets. Oyster’s proprietary digital switching system – Oyster Command™ – lets you monitor and control various systems over a digital network and touchscreen. Optional WIFI can be accessed through the latest satellite technology, or 4G/5G cellular antenna when close to onshore radio masts. Entertainment systems are seamlessly integrated, with a concealed saloon TV and audio running throughout the boat.

The Hallberg-Rassy 50 has been elected winner to the honourable title  European Yacht of the Year 2022  in the prestigious  Luxury Cruiser  category.

That means that the Hallberg-Rassy 50 has been ranked as the most interesting and promising newcomer of its class by a professional jury consisting of journalists from Europe’s twelve leading yachting magazines.

Hallberg-Rassy and Seldén are tweaking the concept of cruising by blending it with a great deal of performance. Carbon in-mast furling now takes PushButtonSailing to a completely new level. This set-up reduces the heeling and the weather helm to a minimum and improves up-wind performance. The lighter mast also makes for less pitching and pumping in choppy and big seas and the whole set-up will give a richer over-all sailing experience. Read more about it under  News

Traditionally we are used to comparing boats with hull length in feet. But much more relevant is the waterline length. The new 50 has a waterline that is as much as 50 cm / 1’ 8’’ longer than on the Hallberg-Rassy 55. Longer waterline gives better sailing performance with longer average day runs and at the same time more interior volume, comfort and storage under deck. The width is 33 cm larger at the widest point and an incredible 1.08 m wider than the 55 on the transom. That further enhances interior volume and storage.

The modern and most efficient hull shape gives superior sailing performance. At the same time, the forward under water part of the hull is rounded, almost like an egg, and this means soft motion in a seaway at any angle of heel. The displacement of the hull is designed to carry all modern comfort equipment and lots of personal belongings, as well as generous tank capacity.

Typical Hallberg-Rassy, the cockpit is very well sheltered with high all-round coamings and a soft top or hard top windscreen with tempered glass, opening mid section and handholds at the sides. This is the ideal cockpit solution for both hot and cold areas. There is good all-round visibility. With twin wheels, there is both lots of space for displays and buttons and an easy passage from the helm position and forward. Furthermore, the wheel positions give better visibility forward, both when maneuvering in a harbour and to see the tell tails of the headsail. There is an optional big fixed high gloss varnished wooden table with drop leaves.

The rig is modern and easy to handle. It is even possible to fly an inner removable heavy weather sail with no runners. The foresail is only slightly overlapping, making tacking easy. There is also an option for a self tacking jib arrangement. Seldén electric furling for both in-mast and headsail, as well as electric sheet winches are fitted as standard. The main is designed to carry an Elvström FatFurl modern in-mast furling sail with Epex membrane, with roach, vertical battens and headboard. The top shrouds and lowers are to separate chain plates, a Hallberg-Rassy invention, which makes passage on deck easy, and arranges for easy sheeting of the headsail. The spreader base gets wide and stable in that way too. The deck plan is clean and uncluttered.

The deck storage is generous. There is not only an enormous deck locker between the forward cabin and the chain locker, there are also two top opening deck lockers aft, one locker in the cockpit and good storage for fenders and ropes also above the chain locker.

The steering system has twin rudders, superior both in terms of control when sailing, as well as pleasant vibration free motoring and also from a safety perspective.

The interior sole is at one level throughout the boat. This gives easy movement both at sea and at anchor or in a marina.

The interior has lots of natural light and indirect led lights as well. There is good ventilation. The layout is generous and roomy, with lots of elbow room. The storage facilities are generous too. The sturdy woodwork has the well renowned Hallberg-Rassy finish.

The sail away standard equipment list is very extensive, including for example electric in-mast furling and electric headsail furler, sails, PU teak deck, retractable bow thruster from Sleipner Side-Power, a 12 kW generator, a 110 HP main engine, electric cooking, fridge and freezer, launching and rigging at the yard, antifouling, fenders, mooring lines and a lot more.

yacht 50 feet


There is a large walk-in engine room. Easy access, easy maintenance and careful sound insulation covered by aluminium linings. There is access from a big door on the port side, as well as a lifting stair in front and a removable panel in the aft end of the engine room. Furthermore, the floor in the cockpit is bolted and removable. In the engine room the technical equipment is found: a powerful common rail main engine, the generator with sound shield, pumps, filters, double heaters, AquaDrive flexible coupling to take up the loads from the engine shaft and further lower vibrations and noise. The engine room lighting is 24 v, and there is also a powerful optional 230 v led light. The Mastervolt Combi Pro charger/inverter automatically and quickly changes between shore power and inverter, depending on what is available.

Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Jochen Rieker, Yacht, Germany: Oh, what a joy! Slipping along in a dying breeze this first-class hotel by the sea type of yacht simply generated her own breeze. With her 25 meter tall carbon furling mast and a set of fine Epex sails including a fantastic furling Code Zero the Hallberg-Rassy 50 kept moving on the glassy Biscay off La Rochelle when others already stalled. While her heavy-weather talents were to be expected her agility in the light was one of several wow effects the Germán Frers design evoked in the not so easily impressed jury. Magnificent hull lines, great ergonomics, spacious cabins and the rock solid Swedish build quality all combine to something universally great. Whatever your program – the Hallberg-Rassy 50 will be a near perfect fit.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Pasi Nuutinen, Vene, Finland: This new 50-footer is amongst the best ones even among Hallberg-Rassy's undeniably high legacy of cruiser yachts. Performance, reliability and dignity of both sailing and living are found in balance which is served with the excellent ergonomics of electrically powered deck hardware.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Toby Hodges, Yachting World, Great Britain: A beautifully refined Hallberg-Rassy. The Swedish yard’s best model yet in its modern hullshape generation, it’s one that uses every inch of Germán Frers’ cunning design while still delivering highly impressive performance across the wind ranges.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Roland Duller, YachtRevue Austria: No other shipyard has mastered the balancing act between contemporary, modern yacht building and the retention of traditional values better than Hallberg-Rassy. The HR 50 perfectly embodies this skill.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Morten Brandt-Rasmussen, Bådmagasinet, Denmark: Hallberg-Rassy delivers with the 50 a boat that is full of the right choices. With the size of 50 foot there is enough space in the cockpit, on deck and down below to truly showcase the qualities of the Swedish yard. The owners cabin, the galley, the salon, the cockpit, the parts and components – everything just seems to be the right choice. The boat sails really well and the push button functionality, rig and sail design is close to flawless.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Germán de Soler, Nautica y Yates, Spain: Whoever wants to get literally everything on a 50 foot cruiser this is the boat for everyone willing to pay the price. In the Hallberg-Rassy 50 luxury is not at odds with the main variable required in a sailboat: her capacity to sail well and fast. For everything else, you would have to do an extraordinary criticism exercise to find a single reproach.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Loic Madeline Voiles & Voiliers, France: So much space in this hull designed by Germán Frers. Moreover Magnus Rassy wanted the interiors to be on one same level from the rear cabin to the front cabin, so you don’t even have to mind any step when moving along. Compared to what was done on previous models, mast was a bit shifted to the rear, so that the saloon can be even wider. Of course we liked the nice woodworks everywhere, but we also appreciate the very large chart station. On deck, you find two helm stations (just like on the Hallberg-Rassy 57). And the new 50 doesn’t need much wind to reach 7 or 8 knots.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Axel Nissen-Lie, Seilmagasinet, Norway: Magnus Rassy got the most things right with his newcomer from Ellös, floating luxury that works in all weathers. It's just a shame that this kind of quality costs so much. I was lucky to sail the boat in sun, heat and light wind in France, but also during hard weather in the winter cold in Sweden. A good blue water cruiser should work in all conditions, and so does Hallberg-Rassy's new 50-footer. They have managed to create a modern boat without letting go of well-functioning solutions.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Joakim Hermansson, Praktiskt Båtägande, Sweden: Year after year Hallberg-Rassy yachts are the absolutely most desired among German magazine YACHT’s readers, and when boarding the brand new Hallberg-Rassy 50 we really understand why. From the perfectly finished interior woodworks of select Nordic light oak together with all the comfort and storage needed for long-range cruises, to the very well utilized space in the roomy cockpit and the performance-enhancing outer lines of designer Germán Frers this brand new 50-footer is by far leaving not only her older 55-foot sister behind but also most of the competition.
Quotes from the European Yacht of the Year jury, who elected the Hallberg-Rassy 50 winner in the prestigious Luxury Cruiser category Lori Schüpbach, Marina.CH, Switzerland: The new Hallberg-Rassy 50 convinces with the usual Hallberg-Rassy advantages and at the same time surprises with various radical adjustments. The carbon furling mast with the black laminate sails is eye-catching. This upgrade is not entirely inexpensive, but it shows that Hallberg-Rassy goes one step further than the competition in terms of equipment and comfort. The volume below deck is also impressive - without compromising on looks the boat's width is exploited right to the stern.
Quote from Yachting World: The most pleasure and performance on the helm for a center cockpit yacht. Refined thoroughbred with single-level interior.

Best Full-Size Cruiser 50-54 Feet

  • By Herb McCormick
  • Updated: December 12, 2017

Dufour 520

Winner: Dufour 520

Three French boats of similar size and price points came together to form the Best Full-Size Cruiser 50 to 54 Feet class. The Beneteau Oceanis 51.1, Dufour 520 and Jeanneau 51 were built from three of the world’s most established and well-known high-volume production boatyards.

The Beneteau 51.1 was a fresh, new design, not a scaled-up add-on to a previous line of yachts. Its hull form includes a hard chine, something that Tim Murphy immediately noticed. “Beneteau was one of the first companies to add chines, they were in the first wave,” he said. “The chines were always aft of the beam, and you’d hear three things about why they were putting them there. Some would say it’s for styling, some for performance, some for interior volume. It does give you a structural bump in the hull form.

“This boat, according to a company representative, was inspired by Rambler, an 88-foot maxi racing boat that has a very, very fine entry forward and then the chine right up near the bow, so it gets some flare and volume straightaway. This Beneteau is also carrying the chine forward, which gives you low wetted surface below the waterline and then large interior volume outside of that. So this is a new thing we’re seeing.”

“I thought the boat sailed very nicely,” said Bill Bolin. “The code zero sail was fabulous, it really lit the boat up. It had a big bimini, but it wasn’t a problem getting out of the cockpit from the steering stations, which were in the aft corners.”

Jeanneau 51

“On the motoring side of things, this boat has plenty of power,” said Ed Sherman when discussing the Jeanneau 51. “At 2,800 rpm, we were getting 8.5 knots, and the sound levels were very low.”

“One of the things I hadn’t seen on a boat this size was the aluminum stringer system down below,” said Bolin. “During sea trials, we had light air, maybe 6 to 8 knots of breeze, and the boat was making 4.8 to 5 knots. And when the wind picked up a little, we actually registered 6.6 knots. It tacked through about 95 degrees, so from a performance standpoint the boat was pretty good.”

“The Jeanneau 51 is the smallest boat in Jeanneau’s Yacht series, which also includes a 54, 58 and 64,” said Murphy. “They call the transformer transom, which folds down to make a swimming and boarding platform, the ‘terrace.’ So they’re able to use the same part for the 51’s terrace as they do for the 54. It’s the same for the cockpit table. So that’s one of the reasons they’re able to bring in the smaller boat at a competitive price point.”

At $420,000 for the base boat, the least expensive yacht in this grouping was the Dufour 520. “In terms of motoring capability, it’s quite good,” said Sherman. “We got 9.2 knots at high speed, which was excellent.”

Beneteau 51.1

“The Dufour offered the most pleasurable sailing experience in this class,” said Murphy. “It starts with the helm, which answered beautifully and I didn’t feel like I was fighting it. It was a very smooth feeling. We did not sail it in a lot of breeze, maybe 7 to 8 knots, but we were making close to 6 knots. I wrote down, ‘The helm feels good,’ and underlined it.”

The creature comforts were also outstanding on the Dufour. “There’s a lot of flexibility in the cockpit,” added Murphy. “When sailing, you use it in the traditional way. But once you’re at anchor you have sun pads that come out and a transom that folds down to reveal a sink, grill and fridge. So it becomes kind of a party platform with the outdoor galley.

“Down below, you have the [real] galley forward, so all of the social space is gathered right at the base of the companionway stairs when you come down. The navigation station slides forward, so you can use it as an aft-facing nav station or a forward-facing table for socializing. There were all these things that adapt to the different ways people use their boats, and that boat was also the best to go sailing on. The helm felt the best, there was a traveler on the main so you could shape your mainsail leech, and it had a good suit of sails, so it also gave you the most options there.”

“It has a lot of unique features, and they delivered them well,” said Bolin. “I feel the Dufour 520 was the winner of the Best Full-Size Cruiser 50 to 54 Feet class.” And so did his fellow panelists.

Boat Test: 2023 Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS

  • By Chris Caldwell
  • August 22, 2023

Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS running

After a day on the water testing the new Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS, I realized why it seemed so familiar. It reminded me of the Porsche 356 coupe I owned decades ago. It was fast, it was fun, it was comfortable, and everyone looked when I blew past. I loved that car dearly and still regret selling it. 

GLS stands for Grand Luxury Sport and, as the flagship of the “adventuring” GLS series of Cruisers Yachts boats, the 50 is all that and more. This yacht is about fun and entertaining on the water. Once you get past using the words “Cruisers” and “ outboards ” in the same sentence, this is a quite spectacular yacht. 

Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS beached

Cruisers calls the 50 GLS “the ultimate dayboat,” which is accurate in one sense, but limiting in another. The 50 is great for entertaining a boatload of friends, but also doubles as a surprisingly luxe overnighter, with two staterooms and a spacious head with a separate stall shower.

For starters, the cockpit is spacious, and even more so when the sides butterfly down to a 21-foot beam, leaving the aft seating in an island of comfort with its own table. The transom grill (or optional two grills) is convenient to the cockpit and allows the chef to ­surreptitiously dispose of charred burgers overboard.

Set well behind the chef is a whacking-great trio of 600 hp ­Mercs that push this 19 tons of comfortableness to just shy of 50 knots (56 mph) with more than enough punch to yank skiers and tow toys right out of the water when you put the hammer down.

Interior and Accessories

Three separate seating areas dot the cockpit, with more than enough room to move about without banging knees, and then there is the bow seating. Press a button and the windshield slides open (no lifting ­required), ­offering a deep walkway (safe for all ages) to reach the trio of adjustable sun lounges (with armrests) on the cabin top. You won’t want to walk 15 feet to the twin Isotherm fridges in the aft cockpit, so a cooler is tucked under a seat with a chiller plate (no ice).   

Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS helm

Cruisers Yachts, now owned by MarineMax, created a good-looking yacht, from the black slash on the topsides that conceals the windows to the sleek hardtop that presents you with choices. Want sun and breeze? Open the sunroof and walkway door, plus lower the electric side windows. Hiding from the sun? A 9-foot MakeFast awning grows from the top to shade the aft cockpit. 

The helm features a trio of 19-inch Simrad monitors (including CZone digital switching), a joystick linked to the Side-Power bow thruster, and a fully adjustable helm seat next to a double companion seat.

Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS salon TV

Step below and the bright cabin is surprising, with 6 feet, 8 inches of headroom and a queen-size berth forward behind French doors. A mini galley holds a microwave for morning coffee and croissants, and an Isotherm fridge augments the two in the cockpit galley. The enclosed head is most civilized, with a Lucite-doored stall shower more than 4 feet wide. 

A second cabin is tucked under the ­cockpit, with a pair of berths that convert to a queen berth—perfect for kid naps or guests, although it won’t encourage them to linger. Each cabin has 32-inch TVs, and a 55-inch TV pops up behind the cockpit galley.

Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS berth

Before the 50 GLS was dropped into the water, I had a chance to examine the Donald L. Blount-designed hull with two full-length strakes and wide chine flats that threw the spray far to the side underway. It’s clear that Blount’s performance-boat background provided us with a soft ride through 2- to 3-foot seas, but more importantly, the 50 GLS begs you to exercise your secret Mr. Toad. Crank the wheel, and the twin-propped Merc ­V-12s bite like a Rottweiler. The 50 just grins, banks comfortably, and asks for more dog treats, please. Even Aunt Edna is going to love this ride.   

And while you’d think that 36 cylinders hanging on the transom should make muscle-car noises, well, they don’t. At idle, we registered just 58 dB(A) on the decibel meter, and with the throttles down flat, we were at 85 dB(A), which OSHA says equates to the sound of a vacuum cleaner. There’s no “I didn’t hear you” excuse on the 50 GLS.

Hanging those outboards on the stern also opened immense undercockpit space, which had a Kohler 15 kW genset on our test boat (for keeping those blenders mixing margaritas and the AC going at the sandbar), plus a Seakeeper 6 gyrostabilizer. There was also ample storage for boat gear, from fenders to inflatable toys. 

Cruisers Yachts 50 GLS cockpit seating

The speed chart tells part of the story (56.6 mph), but not the real-life part. Think in terms of Lauderdale to Bimini in 60 minutes, Long Beach to Catalina in a half-hour, and the same from Cape Cod to Nantucket. Even ­better, this isn’t a pounding ride, but a comfortably luxurious adventure.

Shopping? Another $1 million gets you a ­ Formula 500 SSC with four Merc 600s ($3,537,110), plus another 10 mph at wide-open throttle. Do compare and run both boats.

The Cruisers 50 GLS checks all the boxes. It is a bowrider on steroids, an express cruiser with entertaining ambitions, an overnighter in comfort, and a performance boat. 

Like my long-gone Porsche, the 50 GLS is a classic for our own times, and one that should bring you as much fun as my little silver four-banger.

The First All-Aluminum Custom Line 50 Has Launched

  • By Yachting Staff
  • June 25, 2024

Custom Line 50

Custom Line , which is part of the Ferretti Group in Italy, has launched its new flagship: the first all-aluminum Custom Line 50.

The yacht was launched at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona. Its name is Asante , and it comes in at less than 500 gross tons.

“A 50-meter dream. This is the new Custom Line 50, confirming the brand’s state of grace at both design and production level,” Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi stated in a press release. “Cutting-edge research and innovation, in terms of both style and materials, comes together in the use of aluminum, which also offers significant performance and fuel consumption benefits.”

He added: “The new flagship, which opens up a new market segment for Custom Line, is a vessel bathed in light and water, born out of extraordinarily in-depth and effective studies into the yacht’s volumes and spaces.”

Custom Line 50

Beam on the Custom Line 50 is 31 feet, 6 inches, allowing for sizable guest spaces in the interior. The overall design is a collaboration between the Product Strategy Department led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Superyachts Division Engineering team.

Exterior styling is by Filippo Salvetti, while ACPV Architects’ Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel designed the custom interiors. Custom Line ’s team says that the brokerage house Performance Boats USA, LLC also played a key role as the owner’s representative on the project.

Asante has four decks. The master stateroom is located on the upper deck with sole-to-ceiling windows that allow for 180-degree views of the surroundings. This stateroom also has direct access to a private terrace in the bow with a lounge area and a sunpad.

Custom Line 50 launch

Four VIP staterooms are located belowdecks, allowing the yacht to accommodate a total of 12 guests. There are separate quarters for nine crew, with the captain’s cabin located next to the wheelhouse.

The main deck, like the upper deck, has sole-to-ceiling windows to immerse guests in the surrounding marine environment. The yacht also has a water’s edge beach club with direct access to the outdoor area that’s aft on the main deck and fitted out as a private lounge. These two exterior spaces are integrated by a rectangular pool in the stern.

When is the Custom Line 50 Asante expected to make its world debut? At the Monaco Yacht Show later this year. That boat show is scheduled to take place from September 25 to 28.

Officials: drunk man stole 82-foot yacht from pittsburgh marina, floated it into river wall.

yacht 50 feet


The latest breaking updates, delivered straight to your email inbox.

An 82-foot yacht was stolen by an intoxicated man at a Pittsburgh marina Friday morning, according to police.

Officials were called to the Lock Wall Marina off 23rd Street in the Strip District around 8 a.m. The captain of the yacht normally lives aboard but wasn't there Thursday night.

The marina manager let him know in the morning, it was gone.

"He called the police. We called the police. They were well aware of it at that time. But then the weird part is, it ended up just floating right next to River Rescue. So River Rescue, I guess two of the medics, went out there and looked at the boat and said, 'Why is it backing up into here?' And then I got a call on the radio about a boat stolen. So they just walked on, and they arrested one person," Capt. Adam Kernohan told Pittsburgh's Action News 4.

River Rescue detained the man after boarding the yacht. After being cleared by emergency responders, he was taken to Allegheny County Jail.

The man arrested is Michael Fischer, 39. He's charged with theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, and defiant trespass.

The criminal complaint says Fischer "exhibited a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath" and said to police, "I took the boat. I wanted to meet some Pittsburgh Pirates."

Kernohan says that while the yacht's engine was not started, it wasn't because of a lack of trying.

"She's 82 feet long, one of the biggest boats in the Pittsburgh pool. But as far as starting or not, there's a there's a whole entire sequence of events that have to happen for the engines actually fire on this. And the people that were on board tried to do everything they could to do that: circuit breaker flipped, the fire suppression monkeyed around with," Kernohan said.

"We have a book that says all about diesel engines and everything else. That book was actually open, and somebody was trying to read how to start up a diesel engine."

Kernohan is thankful no one was hurt by the drifting yacht.

"Anybody could have got killed in this thing, kayakers. We have crew teams that run up and down the river all the time," he said.

The signs the captains saw onboard suggested to him that the suspect wasn't alone.

"One person doesn't, like, open up four or five bottles, and there are different items that are on the boat that, some would be male, some would be female. And there are some other stuff like somebody tried dyeing their hair," Kernohan said. "They just helped themselves to anything they wanted."

The captain said police told him Fischer is homeless.

Public Safety says no damage to other boats or objects has been reported. The captain says the damage to the yacht is minor.

This isn't the only time the yacht has been in the spotlight. Kernohan will be appearing in some upcoming episodes of "Mayor of Kingstown," which are shot here in Pittsburgh.
