From 2010, FLORENCE O was fully prepared in 2019 for a world cruise including new standing rigging, new battery bank, electronic wizardry, update of all systems, new propeller and much more.
After a trouble free cruise to Scotland, she made her way through the Mediterranean to the Canaries and then onwards across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. Here she spent the winter of 2019/20 basking in its rays.
She came back to Berthon on the deck of a freighter, her mission completed and she now seeks a new custodian.
In the autumn of 2020, Berthon Boat Company completely repainted her topsides after making some hull repairs. A section of her toerail was also replaced as it had some damage. She is now offered resplendent in her new paint, as you will see.
To record this work, and to show you how she looks today, here is a short video taken very recently:
The Discovery 55 is an epic long distance cruising yacht that is perfect for a couple to do the world aboard. Her current owners found her easy to handle, comfortable to live aboard and always felt safe aboard FLORENCE. She also has a lovely VIP cabin in the bows and a spacious upper and lower berth cabin forward for guests.
Discoverys also always come with a proper deck saloon and elevated nav station which is just the job for watch keeping on those chill, damp nights.
The galley is enormous with masses of storage and of course the refrigeration is epic.
FLORENCE left Berthon in December 2020 to spend Christmas and the New Year in France. She returned to us in January 2021. This preserved her EU VAT paid status and of course also means that she is VAT paid in the UK. This means that whether you prefer your Discovery VAT paid in the UK or Europe, the choice is now entirely yours.
FLORENCE can be viewed virtually at a time to suit you, and live we hope later in the year. She is essential weaponry for those contemplating blue water family cruising and she is good to go.
