From 2010, FLORENCE O was built for experienced owners with a fantastic specification and a lovely oak interior to go with her dark blue hull and Discovery rig. She took them on an extensive sailing programme from the Mediterranean and for several Caribbean seasons. She also had a lovely time sailing in Scotland and the cooler latitudes above.
Always immaculately maintained she had a pitstop before we sold her to her current owners in 2019.
We’ve captured FLORENCE O on film for you to enjoy here: –
At Berthon she then enjoyed a nautical makeover including new prop, standing rigging, batteries, nice new Raymarine hybrid touch sailing instrumentation and lots else. After their wedding, they sailed her to Scotland before cruising through the Mediterranean to the Canaries. From there they crossed the Atlantic to the Caribbean and had a wonderful season’s cruising.
For them, new business ventures have taken them back ashore. FLORENCE O joined us on the back of a freighter and has been prepared for her new owners. She has more nice updates like a new electric in-mast furling motor and she is perfect for a couple to cruise the world aboard.
In addition to her great specification, her table in the main saloon is solid and has an electric lift enabling it to drop and convert into a double berth, giving the possibility of 8 berths should you so wish.
She is now ashore, and as the autumn draws nearer, her large overall canvas cover will be summoned and she will wear this to preserve her decks and upperworks for the winter. This is how she has spent her winters and it offers superb protection.
The Discovery 55 remains a benchmark blue water cruising yacht which is perfect both for small crews and for families. Their sweet lines and powerful hull shape from Ron Holland make them a joy to sail and provide fast passage times.
Down below she has a proper deck saloon, and also a chart table with great vision which makes interior watch keeping a possibility. This is a big deal.
The galley is vast with lots of storage, massive refrigeration, and a larder. There is also additional storage beneath the floors. The owners’ stateroom is large and spacious with a vast en-suite head, washer dryer and engine room access.
Guests live forward with a VIP double berth forward and a generous upper and lower berth cabin on offer. There is a large heads compartment with separate shower stall.
FLORENCE O is a honey, please call to make an appointment to view.
