Production starts on new Discovery 48


We are delighted to announce that following much anticipation, our new Discovery 48 is starting to take shape in our manufacturing facility here at Marchwood, near Southampton.

The new Discovery 48 continues in the proud tradition of Discovery Yachts offering the same high quality build and exceptional pedigree with an emphasis on offshore performance.

The waterline has been maximised to deliver impressive passage times while enhancing the interior space for luxurious on-board living. A raised saloon and navigation station continue the Discovery trademark of ensuring excellent visibility from within while offering an open, spacious and sociable saloon area.

The interior design offers a 2 or 3 cabin layout, including a sumptuous owner's cabin plus two heads. On deck the Discovery 48 features a tall Solent Rig with in-mast furling, self-tacking jib and overlapping masthead genoa for simple sail handling. An aft cockpit design with a single (Ocean version) or twin (Riviera version) wheels are available with a fold down bathing platform and teak deck offered as standard.

The underwater hull profile incorporates exceptional form stability with twin rudders and a high aspect ratio deep keel for excellent all-round sailing capability. The hull has already undergone extensive sea trials in the Solent proving her to be a first class performer with good upwind speed pointing to 30 degrees with a comfortable motion.

Contact us now to discuss this stunning new addition to the Discovery range, call +44 (0) 23 8086 5555, or join us at our Open Yard event on Sunday 11th June 2017 - Discover more below.
