Broker’s Comments

DISCOVERY is a rugged and robust steel ketch which has just completed a full interior refresh. Unusually she is MCA category 0 coded. This gives her the ability to charter worldwide on an unlimited basis. Her deck saloon and steel construction make her perfect for adventure sailing; especially when visiting the colder places.

Owner’s Comments

Yacht DISCOVERY is immensely safe and strong with the highest safety rating possible MCA Category 0. This means that she is built and equipped to sail anywhere in the world in any conditions. She has sailed round the world. She was specially chosen by the British Army for an expedition to Antarctica in 2001-2, and she has completed many seasons of UK-based sail training in all weathers. Through all this, she has kept crew members safe and secure on board, whatever the conditions at sea.

Her accommodation is laid out with a bunk style set up so don’t expect a cabin cruiser, a lot of our crew prefer this open plan layout instead of being cramped into a small cabin with someone you may not know. With her size there is always a quite spot to be found just to relax and enjoy the surroundings. She is designed to be sailed hard in any weather all over the world. DISCOVERY’s saloon is a great social area with plenty of seating large windows and a table big enough for everyone to sit round. This means that the whole team can have briefings together, discuss plans for the voyage, and have meals together. Everyone gets to know each other pretty quick and you soon become a valued part of the team.
