Young example of the very popular globe trotters from 2012. The Discovery 55 enjoys an enviable reputation for ease of handling, performance and the raised deck saloon is particularly desirable feature. Still in her original ownership this Discovery 55 was well specified from the outset lacking nothing in terms of inventory for long distance adventures. Regularly and professionally maintained it is apparent she has been a well-loved member of the family.
