Designed to be sailed by just two people, this impressive new model in the company's range retains all the clever features loved by current owners whilst offering a host of new custom-designed innovations, as well as an extremely high level of equipment specification. The new Discovery 57 has been built by top British craftsmen to ensure enduring quality and lasting value.
The superb performance and easy handling of the new Discovery 57 are the result of the classic Ron Holland hull design which ensures exhilarating and effortless sailing. The sleek waterline combined with fine entry and beam carried aft enable extremely comfortable passage-making as well as exceptional performance. The new state-of-the-art resin-infused hull results in a substantially lighter finished yacht and together with the twin-wheels and semi-balanced rudder ensure that the 57 is light on the helm and easy to manoeuvre as well as having a large and sociable cockpit.
The luxury interior designed by Ken Freivokh offers owners a light and airy, flexible on-board living space, in a choice of exquisite wood finishes. Panoramic vision is the hallmark of Discovery Yachts and the new 57 is no exception with a large raised saloon and separate navigation position both offering excellent visibility as well as safety and comfort.
With sleek lines, fast sailing performance and luxury accommodation, the new Discovery 57 has been carefully designed and meticulously built for short-handed blue-water cruising. The yacht boasts an exceptionally high specification which includes generator, microwave, washer/dryer, central heating and electric in-mast furling all as standard fit. With the first four yachts already sold to an international customer base, it's clear that Discovery have a winning design.
The new Discovery 57 will be launched on Friday 14th September 2012 at 10.30am at the PSP Southampton Boat Show.
