Owner’s Comments

Owning a Discovery 55’ was always on our bucket list. We researched the market and decided that this was the yacht that was most suitable for a couple to accomplish bluewater sailing aboard. We were seriously tempted to build a new Discovery in 2012 but business and family commitments prevented us following through. Time passed by and our dream to own and sail bluewater aboard a Discovery 55 was rekindled. We researched the pre-owned market and came across TIMELESS. She had the lovely oak interior and specification that we wanted and further research revealed that Discovery 55#41 was indeed the yacht that we had considered building back in 2012. It was meant to be.

TIMELESS needed some work to fully prepare her for the Mediterranean and Caribbean cruising that we planned, so we had everything done to her that we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the process as well as getting to know the yacht and how to handle her, just to 2 of us. However, time marches on and we concluded that whilst we loved the yacht, we would not sail her bluewater and she is too good a yacht for local cruising. Therefore, we have asked Berthon to sell her and to pass her onto her new owner in thoroughly Bristol shape and ready for oceans.
