TICKETEEBOO has been cruised part time throughout her lifetime, eight weeks in the spring and eight weeks in the autumn. Her current, and original owners have sailed her two handed most of the time, except when family have been aboard for holidays. They have found her to be a reliable and trustworthy partner during their sailing adventures.

Exploring the Accommodation & Deck Equipment of Discovery 55, TICKETEEBOO
TICKETEEBOO has a Selden Solent rig which is anodised – so no paint to worry about. There is a self-tacking jib, electric in-mast furling and powered winches in the cockpit. The Discovery 55 is set up so that her crew don’t have to leave the cockpit to manage the sails, which is great when you are sailing short-handed.
Down below the joinery is in cherry and she has a raised deck saloon with seating and extendable table to port and a passage berth to starboard with the chart table and interior watch keeping position starboard aft. This is fantastic as it makes it possible to watch keep in open water from the comfort of the deck saloon, reducing fatigue, and much increasing comfort!
The galley is linear and runs aft to port with large fridge and freeze, 4 burner cooker, twin sink and drainer, masses of storage, 3 opening ports and on overhead hatch for ventilation and a microwave.
The owner’s stateroom is aft with a large centreline double berth, lots of storage and a sofa to port and an en-suite head. What is clever about this is that the separated shower stall has access to the full size washer dryer and also into the engine room, which houses her 160hp Yanmar, manifold, water maker and charging systems. Her Onan 7Kw generator is further forward and can be accessed under the companionway.
Forward there is a VIP guest room and a generous upper and lower berth cabin. These two cabins share a large head and separated shower. There is masses of storage in both cabins.
An Insight into the Current Plans of Discovery 55, TICKETEEBOO
TICKETEEBOO’s owners now have other projects planned which mean that they can no longer devote 16 weeks a year to their Discovery and hence she has come to the market.
Whilst on the market they continue to use and to maintain TICKETEEBOO ready for her new owners.
