From 2012 and first commissioned in 2013, this late addition to the Discovery 55 sisterhood (slightly over 50 of these benchmark bluewater cruising yachts were built) is now offered for sale.
We know her well, having sold her to these owners. Discovery aficionados will recognise her as TIMELESS. 2019 saw a nautical pit stop of some scale with new sails, copper coat, second primary winch added, new saloon table and new seacocks. This owner has kept up the good work with many upgrades including solar panels fitted on her recent bimini to take advantage of the Caribbean rays that she now enjoys.

COOL CAT is in her third ownership. With her first owners, she cruised the Mediterranean, returning to us in Lymington to be sold. After her refit in 2019, her second owners’ plans changed and hence she found her current owners. Covid curtailed her use, and she remained in the Canaries before crossing the Atlantic in 2022 for a programme in the Caribbean. She based in the lovely, azure waters of Grenada and is offered in totally turnkey condition.
With her proper deck saloon and interior watch keeping position for open waters sailing, she is set up for a couple to cruise the world aboard. Watch keeping from below even in good conditions reduces fatigue and makes short-handed transits more comfortable. Her large centre cockpit is fab and all plain sail handling is managed from the cockpit without the need to go on deck – the cockpit even has a bath!
Her Solent rig with sweptback spreaders means that runners are not needed. Her self-tacking jib makes short-handed sailing with her automated in-mast furling mainsail a doddle. The second stay has a low cut genoa and she goose wings easily, taking advantage of downwind ocean crossings.
Below, the owners’ stateroom is large with an en-suite and separated show stall. There is a washer dryer and access to the engine space. She has a vast galley and masses of refrigeration as well as a lovely double VIP cabin and generous upper and lower berth cabin forward for guests. These cabins share a large heads, again with a separate shower stall. COOL CAT has a bright and sparkling oak interior and a lovely extending saloon table with marquetry insert in her raised seating area from which you can watch the world go by.
Fully equipped for tropical sailing, she has air con and all the bluewater kit. She is extremely cool.
