Extraordinary benchmark cruising yachts from the board of Ron Holland, a significant number of the fleet have passed through our hands, some of them on multiple occasions. It is always a thrill for us to see them sail away on their next bluewater adventure.
Through this period, we have and continue to work very closely with John Eustace of JE Marine, who is the expert about all things Discovery Yachts. John is on hand for advice and practical help on maintenance and is able to support yacht owners during their bluewater programmes with spares and technical knowledge.
You will meet John, if you sea trial a Discovery and he and us will join you on your bluewater journey.
It was a blow when the Discovery Shipyard LTD announced that it was in financial difficulties just before Christmas 2021, as they build terrific yachts and also breathed life back into the wonderful Southerly Yachts brand. Another great British product, with their fantastic Stephen Jones’ hulls giving speed and power, sensible deck layouts, deck saloons and lovely interiors, they complimented beautifully the Discovery Yachts range. Their centreboard arrangement also gives them the ability to sale in shallow waters internationally – on the intercoastal waterways and in many parts of Europe.
Southerly 47, MILLSTREAM is currently part of our brokerage fleet: [OFF MARKET]
We were delighted therefore to add Harry Lightfoot, Discovery’s own Sales Manager, to our Sales Team at Berthon International, in the UK, in January 2022.
Working with the Berthon team which now includes Harry, who is an acknowledged expert about all things Southerly. As well as Alan McIlroy and Sue Grant – who know the Discovery brand well. And John – who is able to support new owners with practical help and advice on an ongoing basis. We offer a rounded service to anyone owning a Discovery or Southerly yacht.
Always available to chat about your plans, aspirations as well as the nuts and bolts of how to service systems, what needs to be upgraded and prepared for ocean sailing as well as the residual value of your yacht and our view of the market, we do hope that you will get in touch. We are all passionate about these yachts and would love to chat.
