Broker’s Comments

The Discovery 57 was designed to be sailed by two people. The generous sail plan, in-mast furling, self-tacking Solent jib, the positioning of the control lines and winches within the cockpit, and raised navigation area for the watch below allows the yacht to be sailed on long passages by just two people. The 10,000kg high ballast ratio bulb keel gives a steady boat with an easy motion and the semi-balanced rudder ensures that she is light on the helm and easy to maneuver.

The twin helm stations provide an easy to walk through to a comfortable, good size & deep cockpit, ideal for entertaining.

A spacious galley has a cavernous front-opening fridge and freezer, generous work surfaces and is a perfect width for true ease of use at sea. A full size washing machine, workbench & storage in a separate workroom.

Owner’s Comments

We commissioned the build of PEREGRINE for comfortable blue water cruising. We previously owned a Nauticat and liked the deck saloon arrangement and the ability to see out from the saloon. We had the opportunity to upgrade her substantially during the build and the use of differing woodwork finishes and modern fabrics has made her a lovely environment to spend a lot of time on. She is accommodating for us and the guest accommodation works brilliantly. We also love the workshop off the main saloon with the laundry facilities in it as well as lots of storage.

However, the area in which PEREGRINE has exceeded our expectation is her motion and behavior in a seaway. She doesn’t slam and she is comfortable and well mannered. We have sailed her a lot short handed and the self tacking jib makes this an effortless affair. Using the genoa is also simple to manage with a small crew.

She has been a great yacht and we have much enjoyed sailing her in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. We had her shipped back to the UK to be sold as the long term sailing project is now complete. We have maintained PEREGRINE carefully and all the new yacht niggles have been dealt with so she is definitely ready for more oceans.
