Discovery 55 Brizo completes circumnavigation

Congratulations to Pat and Stu on Discovery 55 Brizo, who have completed their circumnavigation and arrived back in the Caribbean to some well-deserved partying and relaxing island hopping anchorages! These adventurous owners have kept up a fantastic blog since they left England in 2011 which is full of exceptional photos, videos and insights into their life onboard during their bluewater adventure, some of which was undertaken under the auspices of the World Cruising Club ARC rallies.

How it all began!

John and Caroline founded Discovery Yachts 18 years ago with the ambition to build a range of luxury cruising yachts for bluewater sailing enthusiasts.

In close collaboration with the superyacht designer Ron Holland, the couple successfully developed a range of high quality monohull ocean passage cruising yachts which grew to include the Discovery 55, 57, 58 and 67.

Today over 70 of these iconic yachts are cruising the world's oceans, allowing their owners to travel in comfort, safety and the utmost luxury! Discover More.

In 2010 John and Caroline saw a gap in the market for a luxury bluewater cruising catamaran and together with renowned designer Bill Dixon, they launched the Discovery Cat 50. The couple cruised extensively in the first Discovery Cat 50, crossing the Atlantic, cruising the eastern seaboard of the USA, the Bahamas and Caribbean and the idyllic San Blas Islands. They came back to develop the new Bluewater Catamaran more of which below!

Promising start to 2017

2017 has started well with sales of over £2.3M across the range of luxury, high quality cruising yachts, and more expected in the coming weeks.
