Hull and Deck

The Oyster 46 hull and deck is molded in GRP from female molds built by Oyster in their own facility under the designers' supervision, ensuring a fair and accurate finish.

The hull and deck structure are molded in GRP under controlled conditions; laminating is carried out by hand to high standard. Hull and deck moldings are produced using a Lloyd's approved gelcoat and laminating resin. On the hull the gelcoat is a special Isophthalic resin and the outer laminates incorporate a vinylester resin and powder-bound mats.

This combination provides exceptional UV, weathering and water resistance properties.

Deck Structure

The Oyster 46 deck is designed to the New G5 styling. The modern flowing lines again set new industry standards with sleek looks both outside and in, whilst maintaining the Oyster trademark and reputation for a light and airy Deck Saloon.

Molded in GRP with a balsa core for strength and insulation. In loadbearing areas the core is replaced with premium grade Marine plywood for additional strength. All load-bearing fittings have additional backing plates and or large washers.

The foredeck houses a chain locker accessed via twin, hinged lids, one of which is fitted with a lifting handle and the other with a positive catch. This locker drains directly overboard and has a S.S. U-bolt fitted for attachment of the chain's "bitter" end.

Within the aft deck, to port, is a locker, which will allow the stowage of two 10lb Propane gas cylinders. This locker drains overboard at both high and low levels and has a hinged flush lid.

Central, in the aft deck, is a lazarette locker with a positive closing hatch. This gives access to a full width storage area for the usual equipment that may be carried.

Hull and Deck Connection

The hull/deck connection is achieved by the deck sitting on a return flange molded into the hull. The hull to deck joint is sealed and glued with a high performance adhesive and secured with S.S. fastenings. The completed joint is covered with a varnished teak cap rail.

Cockpit Features
The cockpit is self-draining through 2 x 2" (50mm) diameter drains fitted with S.S. grilles.

Deck Finishes
Side-decks, aft deck, inboard coach roof panels forward of the mast and aft of the mainsheet track, cockpit seats and sole are all trimmed with laid teak. The teak decking is laid in 2" (48mm) wide (approximately) teak planking, using quarter-sawn planks laid on epoxy glue, with no visible fastenings. Outboard areas of fore and aft coach roofs and the deck saloon roof, are painted with International non-slip deck paint, color White.


The deck saloon is extremely light and airy with seven windows, the forward outboard pair of which open. A feature opening hullport each side allows visual contact with the outside whilst seated and contributes to the great feeling of space and light in the saloon.

The saloon table is designed to form, in its closed position, an occasional table, which is mounted on a very substantial pedestal base. Stowage for wine and spirit bottles is incorporated into the pedestal.

This table has a fold-over upper leaf, which opens onto a removable support strut, to allow both sides of the saloon to be used for seating whilst dining.

Access to the saloon from the companionway is down a removable set of timber steps, which are shaped and fitted with timber grab rails. A vertical drop-down acrylic washboard is installed in a vertical channel, which in turn drains to the bilge. Flush fitting locks enable the washboard to be set at two different heights.

Incorporated into the accommodation are a number of grabrails, including one on the inboard fore-and-aft edge of the saloon tabletop.


The galley features a stainless steel "larder" front-opening refrigerator, aft to port, incorporating fiddled shelves for ease of use. The stove and sinks are set into work surfaces on opposing sides of the galley. This makes for a very practical, sea-going layout that is combined with excellent storage space. The sinks discharge directly overboard, via a pump, through a seacock.

The following features are included:

  • All horizontal galley work surfaces are covered with satin finish Avonite. These surfaces incorporate Avonite fiddles.
  • Twin stainless steel sinks are fitted to the galley work surface under the cockpit.
  • A trashcan is fitted inside a locker door forward of the cooker. A gimballed Force 10 FT63451 stove in stainless steel with 4 burners, grill and oven is fitted, all protected by a flame failure gas cut-off device. The stove incorporates an electronic ignition system.
  • An electric solenoid switch for the gas shut-off valve is fitted adjacent to the cooker. Outboard of the cooker is a hullport, which may be opened for added ventilation when at anchor.
  • A fiddle rail incorporating a pair of adjustable clamping pan-holders is fitted around the top of the cooker. A harbour lock and cooker crash bar are fitted and the cooker is housed in a moulded GRP surround with radiused corners for ease of cleaning. The standard Oyster Wedgwood bone china crockery is stowed in the locker at the aft end of the port saloon settee. The coolbox is a white moulded GRP laminate with a drain plumbed into the bilge.
  • The refrigerator is fitted with removable shelves and has a drain plumbed to the bilge area. An auto-door light operates within the box.


  • A Yanmar 4JH4-TE, 4-cylinder, 75Hp (55kW) at 3200rpm, turbocharged diesel engine with an SD50, 2.32:1 Saildrive gearbox.
  • The engine is located centrally, under the cockpit and galley sinks. The engine room is insulated with a composite of foam and high-density polymer sound absorbing materials, with an overall panel thickness of approximately 40mm.
  • The engine room has a service light installed. An extractor fan is installed and switched at the DC electrical panel. This fan is designed to be used either during sustained running in hot climates and/or to evacuate hot air from the engine space, after the engine has been shut down.
  • An automatic fire extinguisher is installed with a remote indicator light
  • Cooling water is taken in via the S-Drive strut, obviating the need for a separate seacock. This installation benefits from an extremely low level of noise and vibration transmission to the hull structure. 
  • Start and Stop buttons are fitted on the steering pedestal, to avoid having a key in the cockpit. Throttle and gear controls are single lever, Lewmar Morse-type, installed on the starboard side of the pedestal.
  • Engine instrumentation is integrated into the Garmin display at helm.
  • The engine is fitted with an 80 Amp 12v alternator.
  • Type: Inboard
  • Fuel Type: Diesel
  • Propeller Type: 3 Blade
  • Feathering Propeller


  • Aft Cabin with Double Centerline Island Berth
  • Port Forward Upper and Lower Single Berths
  • Traditional V Berth Cabin forward
  • Total Cabins: 3
  • Heads: 2
  • The aft cabin features a Centerline Island Berth, with a settee and dressing table, a hanging locker, with drawer and locker space. There is a mirror forward of the dressing table seat. Within this cabin there is a bookshelf outboard to port. 
  • Twin hullports provide light and ventilation when lying to anchor. From this cabin there is access to the aft toilet and shower. This incorporates a head, washbasin, mirror, stowage lockers and shower area with curtain and a separate shower tray. A hullport, or an overhead portlight in the coaming, may be opened, when not sailing, to ventilate this compartment.
  • All sleeping cabin windows have curtains made from fabric from our standard range. Overhead tracks are concealed as part of the headlining system. All berths have new custom foam mattresses and custom fitted sheets.
  • Forward accommodation consists of a double cabin with V-berth in the bows, provided with an infill piece and cushion, under-berth stowage, accessed through the berth bottoms, and a hanging locker.
  • Aft and to port of this is a twin guest cabin with upper and lower berths, clothes lockers and a hanging locker. Each forward cabin has a mirror installed.
  • The two forward cabins share a WC compartment to starboard incorporating a head, washbasin, mirror, stowage lockers and a shower area with curtain.
  • The saloon features an L-shaped settee area and table on the port side. To starboard is a two-seater settee. The port settee forms a useful seaberth, when used with the lee-cloth provided. 
  • The table features a matching fold-over leaf, supported by a removable strut. This allows both sides of the saloon seating to be used for dining.
  • The chart area faces forward at the aft, starboard end of the saloon, allowing the navigator to be comfortable whilst sailing, without intruding into saloon space. The chart table can accommodate several half-folded, full size, Admiralty charts.


  • Fuel supply is from a 198 US gallon (750 liter) approximately, GRP tank installed under the port deck saloon sole.
  • Tank contents may be checked using a calibrated dipstick (provided) installed within its own access fitting.
  • The fuel tank is fitted with a number of Polyvent 9.5" (240mm) diameter removable screw-down inspection covers with 'O' ring seals, to facilitate periodic maintenance.
  • A special tool for opening and closing the Polyvent covers is included within the vessel's loose equipment. The tank has its own remote deck filler on the side deck and a breather at the transom.

Bilge Pumping System

The bilges throughout the vessel are limbered into a deep central bilge sump.

  • Electric bilge pump - Jabsco Utility Puppy 3000 - with Hydro Air switch. This pump is rated at 13.2gpm at 10ft total head.
  • A 3-position switch is fitted to allow Off/On/Auto operation.
  • Whale Gusher 10 MkIII manual bilge pump, operated from the cockpit and fitted with a metal deck plate.
  • Each bilge pump is fitted with a Whale type filtered strum box of the appropriate size for that suction line.
  • All suction lines can be lifted to enable debris to be cleared

Greywater System

Each heads compartment is fitted with an electric Whale Gulper pump which is operated by a waterproof rocker switch and evacuates water from the washbasin & shower directly overboard.

The galley sinks discharge with an electric Whale Gulper pump, which is operated by a waterproof rocker switch.

Freshwater System

Water supply is from a 172 US gallons (650 liter) approximately, GRP tank installed under the starboard deck saloon sole. 

The GRP water tank is coated internally with inert gelcoat, fitted with baffles and provided with Polyvent covers, as per the fuel tank. The tank has a remote deck filler and, as the fuel tank, also has an individual breather at the transom.

Hot water is obtained from an insulated, approximately 11 US gallons (50 liters), tank heated by the engine's heat exchanger. A thermostatically controlled 110v, 1.25kW immersion heater element is installed, to run off AC shore power, when connected.

Electrical System

D.C. Electrical System

  • The yacht's DC electrical supply is 12volt. 4 x lithium ion batteries that provide  approximately 460 Amp hours for the domestic supply. 
  • Two separate 88 Amp hour (approximately) 12v batteries are devoted to engine and generator starting.
  • All batteries are positively secured against inversion in the case of a knockdown. Battery gas escapes via ducting to the exterior.
  • Batteries are charged by the engine's 12v/80 Amp alternator via a diode isolator.
  • In addition to alternator charging, the batteries can be charged by a 24 Volt Mastervolt 100 amp charger, which feeds from 110v from dockside power or Fisher Panda Mini 8 Generator with approximately 200 hours.
  • All electrics are connected to appropriately sized circuit-breakers incorporated into a central, separate DC panel. Spare circuit-breakers are provided to allow a reasonable number of additional electrical, or electronic, options to be fitted.
  • Heavy-duty, main battery isolators are located in a separate locker, under the navigator’s seat, near to the batteries. Every effort is made to keep cable runs as short as is practical.
