Discovery Yachts has announced that its new Discovery 55 Mk II will be launched at the Southampton Boat Show. The launch will take place on berth M162.

The new Discovery 55 Mk II incorporates numerous new design features and clever innovations. These have evolved from the feedback of Discovery owners and their hundreds of thousands of cruising miles.

In addition to a new contemporary exterior profile with sleek saloon windows and flush deck hatches throughout, the new yacht features even more light in the hallmark raised saloon with slender window mullions offering an expanded panoramic vision from both the saloon and interior navigation station.

Discovery Yachts are renowned for its bluewater and live-aboard capabilities and the new Discovery 55 Mk II is no exception. The classic Ron Holland designed hull ensures fast and exhilarating passage sailing with a safe, comfortable and easy-to-handle rig. The yacht is designed to be sailed by just two people and its ease of handling combined with attention to detail and exceptional use of space make her the ultimate bluewater cruising yacht.

Discovery Yachts builds bespoke blue-water cruising yachts from its base in Marchwood, Hampshire.
