The British Sailing Style
It is no coincidence that the Olympic jib is called “Solent”. When sailing in this famous stretch of sea, improvisation is not allowed. Stormy winds, cross sea and strong tidal flows put both crews and boats through the mill.
It is therefore not surprising that local boat manufacturers build sturdy genuine boats, designed to sail in total comfort even in the harshest conditions.
For over 20 years, in Southampton, Discovery Yachts has been manufacturing luxury custom boats where these important features are complemented by the possibility to enjoy short-handed sailing.
That’s how those that are among the most famous and refined all-time blue water cruisers are created. Sailing yachts with legendary seaworthiness that owners choose as their “definitive boat” to enjoy their long comfortable journeys around the world.
You will therefore understand that we couldn’t miss the opportunity to test, right in Solent, one of these masterpieces: the Discovery 54.
