Would you like to visit a working ship yard, learn about the building process from bare GRP and wood to finished yacht?
Oliver Love HRSC Member and R&D Director for Discovery group, is organising a tour of the Discovery Shipyard on the 6th March 2018 @ 19:30, if you would like to go along please reserve your space by using this link.
With the recent acquisition of Southerly yachts the Discovery Shipyard has a full order book and a full factory!
There are no costs and it is a working yard so no dress code but it is a dusty environment so nothing too fancy.
Towards the end of the 1990s John and Caroline Charnley started looking for the perfect short-handed cruising yacht to indulge their passion for sailing, while allowing them to enjoy a level of comfort that few performance sailboats can deliver. Having failed to find a solution to meet their needs, they commissioned renowned designer Ron Holland and the Discovery 55 was born.
Discovery Yachts was founded in 1998 and set out to create the world's most perfect blue-water cruising yachts designed to take two people around the world on the ultimate journey of discovery.
More than a decade on Discovery Yachts is a thriving business with a team of over 100 working from its base in Southampton, including in-house naval architects, designers and expert craftsmen. We currently produce ten exceptional yachts per year with high levels of customisation specific to each owner.
