Discovery 55 Mark II

2012 Discovery 55 Mark II now for sale with DBY Boat Sales.

September AM is currently lying South Pacific.

If you're searching for a pedigree luxury blue water cruising yacht, then the Discovery 55 is your ultimate vessel.

A Ron Holland design, September AM (no.039) is easily sailed short-handed and feels incredibly safe thanks to the deep centre cockpit and high ballast ratio.

The stunning interior has been hand crafted from the highest quality materials. Being the Mark II model, the raised saloon design and well-appointed galley are extraordinarily spacious, complemented by the statement 360° view large windows.

The three cabin, two heads layout, including the ensuite master stateroom, provides plenty of scope for your family and friends. Additional berths in the saloon mean you can comfortably accommodate 8 on those long trips away.

Built with an eagle eye for detail and maintained to the highest standard, this immaculate vessel is now in its second ownership and underwent a full refit in 2017 with a large list of upgrades. The present owner has continued to maintain and upgrade September AM to the same high standard.

A cut above the rest, the Discovery 55 has set a benchmark for performance, luxury, safety and comfort in blue water cruisers.
