The Discovery 55 requires little introduction - any seeking a mid-55s ocean cruising yacht will be well aware of their prowess. They struck a chord with many bluewater/offshore sailors with the easily managed sail plan, speedy & sea kindly Ron Holland hull, the raised deck saloon and of course the superb navigation area. We know this particular Discovery 55 very well having marketed the yacht previously and sold her to the current owners.
RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC or RCDII (2013/53/EU as appropriate (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean”
