Broker’s Comments

FLORENCE is a well-organized and specified yacht that is in her first ownership. She has an oak interior and a electrically lifting saloon table which works well in this light and airy place that is the signature for Discovery. FLORENCE has sailed far and has been carefully maintained. 2017/18 saw a significant overhaul and refit of the yacht. Major works carried out include –

  • Comprehensive refinishing hull and topsides including polishing stainless
  • Replaced caveat lines and name graphics
  • Decks lightly sanded
  • Detail internal refurbishment in wear areas
  • Replaced worn halyards
  • VHF upgrade
  • Replaced furler swivels
  • Jib and Genoa serviced
  • Routine Engine generator services
  • Fitted cover

FLORENCE is now offered for sale having completed her owners’ cruising programme and is ready for more oceans and more sea miles.

Owner’s Comments

FLORENCE has cruised widely initially in Scotland, then 3 years in the Mediterranean followed by 3 years in the Caribbean and is spent the 2018 season back in the Western Isles. We chose to have her built based on the desire to have a comfortable blue water yacht which the 2 of us (both in our 60s) could easily handle. She has fully lived up to expectations in that respect. Modifications which we chose included the prototype system for converting the saloon table into an occasional additional double berth allowing 8 to sleep on board in full comfort. As the 2010 boat show representative for Discovery Yachts the yacht was finished to an exceptionally high standard. She still turns heads wherever she goes particularly this year after a complete refinishing of the topsides to bring her back to her best after 6 years in hot climates.
