From 2012, ON A WHIM is the first of a series of seven of these outstanding yachts. Designed by Ron Holland and built in the UK, she is an exceptional bluewater cruising yacht.

You can read about her specification here – [OFF MARKET]
ON A WHIM has an automated rig that was built by Formula Spars. The front sails are powered by Reckmann and as with other Discoverys, she has a robust Solent Rig with self-tacking jib and swept back spreaders so there is no need for runners. Her twin wheel arrangement has great visit and she has easily used davits for handling the dinghy.
Down below her interior is executed in a combination of teak and wenge. She has Amtico flooring. Her elliptical saloon windows allow the light to stream in and from the main saloon there is wonderful vision.
It also makes for easy watch keeping whilst on passage from her navigation station.
As with all Discoverys, there is a well-equipped galley and large owner’s stateroom. The vertical windows aft and large hull windows provide interest and light.
The Discovery 58 has two further large guest cabins as well as a large work room which houses access to the engine room with great access to all the machinery, as well as the washer dryer and lots of space for tools and spares.
ON A WHIM has recently been massively reduced in price from £950,000 to £795,000, making her extraordinary value for money. There is now some work needed that was revealed by a recent survey and this new pricing reflects this. Her current owner has no programme for her, so he would prefer that her new owners undertake the needed works and then launch and enjoy this special yacht.
If you would be interested to know about the works required to this special yacht, please do get in touch. Based at our Lymington HQ in the UK, viewing is easily arrange either live or virtually.
