Our Yacht

Oyster is one of the most renowned and prestigious yacht manufacturers. The Oyster 56 is in turn one of their best boats with 75 in production. The company is also famous for its extraordinary customer service. When you’re buying a boat last minute and entering a world rally, exceptional customer service is more important than ever.


And the name “Shanties”?

It comes from our own story. “Shanties” is the name of the biggest sea shanties festival in the world that I organized in then-communist Poland during the eighties. That’s when I met my future wife and many other wonderful people who have been a large part of my life. I will always remember this time as the most interesting and inspiring time of my life and I want that to live on in my yacht.
