Firebird is a new build Oyster 885 RS, designed by Rob Humphreys and launched in Southampton, UK in early 2016.  She is a luxury cruising yacht that has been fully customised for ambitious round the world passages. She boasts a performance deck and rig package, enabling her to compete in Superyacht Regattas. The raised saloon offers guests an exceptional panoramic view of their surroundings, and her custom interior sleeps 7 guests in complete luxury.

Firebird is available for exclusive private charter and has been designed specifically for this purpose, so guests will enjoy all of the bespoke amenities they could wish for at their fingertips. She comes with a crew of three and guest accommodation consisting of three double ensuite cabins and a fourth single cabin with its own ensuite facilities.

During the winter season Firebird will be located in Norway offering Ski & Sail Adventures. Lyngen Alps of Northern Norway has been consistently voted one of the best off-piste skiing destinations in the world. Arctic Norway is a unique winter paradise, from catching panoramic glimpses of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and whale watching to ice climbing, with routes catering to anyone from rookies to seasoned mountaineers. As the polar night starts to recess in late February the sail and ski season begins. A complete ban on helicopter and snowmobile-assisted accents ensures tranquillity and pristine powder, and numerous ski touring routes, more than a 100 of which are marked and well defined in local guidebooks, cater for skiers and riders of all levels and abilities. Located well inside the Arctic circle this unique nature’s playground offers guaranteed skiing until mid-May.

An adrenaline-charged, awe-inspiring adventure around the distinctively rugged coastlines of Northern Norway’s Lyngen Alps which has been consistently voted one of the best off-piste skiing destinations in the world. An amazing sailing and skiing holiday on board Oyster 885 RS, “Firebird” for those who yearn for both true adventure and luxury.
