The Discovery 57 offers a unique, high class experience for blue water, tropical and high latitude sailing enthusiasts. If you're after a late model, centre cockpit, genuine raised saloon/pilot house yacht that is built to the highest standards, this is perhaps the best option on the market.
'Outer Rim' was launched in 2014, selected by discerning German owners for their family dream Patagonia and Pacific sailing adventure. It had to be easy, push button sailing for single handed use and price wasn't an issue in their choice...
The Discovery 57 is vacuum-bagged with vinylester resins for maximum strength, integrity and water resistance. The bow area is reinforced by Kevlar and there is also a watertight crash bulkhead providing confidence for an owner in the Oceans toughest conditions.
There is enough deck space aft to keep the twin helms separate from the seating area, where there's room for six around a substantial teak drop-leaf table. Each helm has a modern super yacht style display pod with controls for the instruments, electric winches and hydraulic furling systems.
The spacious aft deck is ideal for sunbathing and has two lazarettes large enough to hold an array of equipment. Access to the water is through a stern gate down several wide teak-covered steps. The stainless steel electric dinghy davits telescope outward and lower the tender into the water just behind the detachable boarding ladder on the bottom swim step.
The decks forward are clear of obstructions, thanks to a self-tacking jib and genoa tracks that are mounted atop the teak caprails. The foredeck is well organized, with a large rope/sail locker forward of a watertight bulkhead, a deep chain locker and a heavily-engineered stemhead fitting carrying twin rollers, two hydraulic headsail furlers and a tack block for an asymmetric spinnaker. There are also stainless steel/teak dolphin watching seats fitted to the pulpit.
The layout includes a vast, well-appointed owner's suite aft, a large guest suite forward and a two-bunk crew cabin amidships. The panoramic views from the elevated saloon seats are one of the unique and beautiful features of this boat, both under sail and at anchor. Plush dark grey leather-covered settees surround a lowering dining table, enabling six to dine in comfort enjoying the 270 degree panoramic views.
The navigator's seat is also raised and enjoys fine views through the large windows ahead enableing dry and comfortable watches. There is a computer screen to show information from the nav systems. Further aft is a step-down utility area that houses a washer/dryer and the electrical control center, comprising a 5ft-tall breaker panel. The walk-in engine room is well organized with excellent maintenance access.
The extensive inventory includes all you would expect in a yacht of such calibre making her an extremely comfortable, safe, self sufficient and luxurious global adventuring package. She is tried and tested and ready for the next owners to enjoy in Australia or to be taken abroad.
'Outer Rim' is berthed at Clontarf Marina in Sydney Australia and is ready for inspection.
