Broker's Comments

The Discovery 55 is all about serious blue water cruising in style. The yacht was designed as a fast passage maker, that can be handled by a crew of just 2 people and that can be self-sufficient. All sails can be handled from the cockpit with electric furlers and winches. The boat is equipped with bow thruster, water maker and generator. The navigation station offer good visibility all around. She is also meant to be a home away from home. Hence all the comfort elements such as AC, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, big fridge and freezer, etc. The boat has been professionally maintained and can be viewed by appointment. British flag. Note: offers on the asking price may be considered.

La Discovery 55 es un crucero serio, pero con mucho clase. El barco ha sido diseñado como un crucero rápido que se puede manejar con una tripulación de solo 2 personas y que tiene mucha autonomía. Todas las velas se pueden manejar desde la bañera con enrolladotes y winches eléctricos. El barco está equipado con hélice de proa, potabilizadora y generador. La mesa de cartas ofrece una buena visibilidad alrededor. El barco también está pensado como una residencia, con todos los elementos de confort tales como el aire acondicionado, lavadora-secadora, lavaplatos, microondas, gran nevera y refrigeradora, etc. Se ha mantenido profesionalmente y se puede enseñar con cita previa. Bandera inglesa. Nota: se pueden considerar contra-ofertas.
