Discovery Model Range
The brand Discovery produces luxury Cruising Yachts and sailing Yachts with Central or Protected Cockpit. There are 11 models from 12 to 21 meters.
As is often the case in the yachting world, we wanted to build a boat, but we got a shipyard. The story of Discovery Yachts started with this scenario. In the late 1990s, Sun Sail charter company founder John Charnley and his wife Caroline Charnley decided to build a 50 foot ocean-going yacht that could be operated by two people. When they realized how much equipment they wanted to take on board, they stopped at the 55-foot design. After unsuccessfully finding a yacht suitable for their long-term cruising needs, they hired Ron Holland to design a Discovery 55 for them. The yacht was so successful that the owners decided to continue production of the yacht and in 1998 the shipyard appeared and since then Discovery 55 has been produced in over 50 copies, making it the ideal yacht for many long distance cruising.
Later, the company expanded its range of models. Many noted that Discovery looked like boats.Contest .But over time, the similarities were less noticeable, and Discovery boats began to receive prestigious awards.
The company also let out experimental models, however in due course has generated a steady ruler of the cruisers designed by the same Ron Holland.
The modern manufacturing facility is located in Southampton, employing about 100 people. The company manufactures about 10 boats annually.
Discovery Yachts manufactures sailing ocean cruising yachts in a composite hull 40-70 feet long. The shipyard offers models of yachts with a central and Mediterranean cockpit. The yachts are equipped with two fortstags, allowing to carry both genus and self-tipping staysail. Discovery's optional features allow you to build a boat exactly for you. However, even choosing the basic equipment, the client gets a luxury ocean cruiser, which can immediately go around the world.
As the shipyard's founder John Charnelly says, «Discovery yachts are designed to provide two people in the ocean with everything they need. This conclusion is contained in the feedback from our clients». Reliability and seaworthiness of Discovery yachts, even in the most difficult weather conditions, is confirmed in practice by many yachtsmen.
