Skyelark 2 - A Beautiful 62-foot Oyster Yacht for Charter
Skyelark Charters offers adventure sailing and cruising holidays for individuals and small groups aboard our stunning and luxurious Oyster 62. This is a new project from experienced charter operators Dan and Em Bower who have successfully run their Skye 51, Skyelark of London for the past twelve years. Oyster has a reputation for building some of the finest bluewater sailing yachts in the world, and the Oyster 62 is a wonderful platform for sailing the world in both comfort and security.
Owner operated by Dan & Em and professionally maintained, we specialise in taking guests to some of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. For your peace of mind, Skyelark 2 is fully coded to Category 0, licensed to charter anywhere in the world.
Since 2008 Skyelark of London has completed a full program of mile-building passages, Caribbean sailing holidays, Atlantic circuits, several Pacific crossings and two circumnavigations around the world with World ARC. We will now be continuing to offer these exciting sailing expeditions and holidays on our new yacht in even more luxury.
Skyelark is one of the most well known and respected adventure/expedition charter yachts out there - our reputation for a professional operation, in a relaxed fun and friendly environment is well deserved, and it's no surprise our guests return again and again.
