British yacht builders, Discovery Yachts, will be showcasing their two new bluewater cruising yachts, the Discovery 55 Mk.II and the Discovery 58 at the Barclays Jersey Boat Show, 2nd-4th May 2015. Both yachts will then be available for an exclusive, test sailing week from 5th-8th May 2015.
This unique opportunity to test sail both new Discovery models in the beautiful clear waters off St. Helier, will give potential owners the opportunity to experience the genuine bluewater credentials and build quality of these hugely admired long-distance cruising yachts.
The Discovery 55 Mk.II is a fast, beautifully balanced yacht, designed by the legendary Ron Holland to give exhilarating passage sailing in a safe and comfortable set-up. She is designed to be sailed by just two people over long distances, and her ease of handling combined with attention to detail and creative use of space make her an exceptional and proven bluewater cruiser. The new Mk.II version brings her right up-to-date, after 15 years continuous production, with a host of modern features and innovative ideas.
The brand new Discovery 58 is a welcome addition to the Discovery range, offering the option of single or twin wheel steering as well as a three or four cabin layout. The Discovery 58 sports a number of innovative features to make cruising fast, safe, simple and fun. These include a sleek contemporary coach-roof design, spacious teak decks with flush-hatches and a practical Solent rig with self-tacking headsail, in-mast reefing and electric winches. The Discovery 58 has also been designed by Ron Holland to offer fast, comfortable and above all safe long distance cruising.
Unique to both models is the hallmark Discovery raised saloon and inside navigation station, ensuring panoramic views from the saloon, as well as warm, dry and comfortable conditions when on watch. The sumptuous and spacious saloon area combines with a very seamanlike galley to provide the best in genuine live-aboard comfort. Each yacht is created by our team of highly skilled, in-house craftsmen, and is finished using exquisite hand-built wood interiors.
Alastair Walton, Sales and Marketing Director of Discovery Yachts commented, “We are delighted to be able to, for the first time, bring two new bluewater cruising models to the beautiful surroundings of Jersey. Their famous crystal clear waters will provide the perfect setting for visitors to experience genuine bluewater cruising. We look forward to displaying both our new yachts at the Barclays Jersey Boat Show, and to welcoming visitors and special guests alike. After the event, we will be helping potential owners test sail their chosen yacht in the magnificent cruising grounds of the Channel Islands. With so much going on in the Channel Islands this Spring, we are hoping that people will take advantage of the idyllic location to come and visit the boat show, then join us for a test sail in the days that follow.”
