Ireland’s Formula One Grand Prix legend Eddie Jordan has long been a keen sailor – his current vessel is the well-travelled Oyster 885 Lush.
He has now stepped-up his involvement with the well-known UK-based firm as a result of its current re-structuring under the guidance of his longtime sailing friend Richard Hadida.
Richard Hadida has brought Eddie Jordan onto the board as Oyster Yachts – which works closely with international designer Rob Humphreys – re-shapes itself to re-hire most of its staff of 400 at locations in Southampton and Norfolk.
The firm had 20 yachts across its renowned high-end range under construction when it went into administration, and now the intention is to continue to develop the new Oyster 118 while also taking a fresh look at the other end of the size spectrum, where it is reckoned there is a substantial market for a “super high-quality” 42 footer.
