Broker’s Comments

The Discovery 55 is a benchmark blue water cruising yacht and one which we know well having sold her for her first owner. NGALLA MAYA has sailed far with voyages in the northern and southern hemispheres. She therefore has a very full blue water specification. Her name which means – our place – in the local language of the NOONGAR people of SW Australia is fitting as she has provided a home for her owners whilst taking them to some of the most special places on our planet. In 2012 she was significantly refitted. In her current ownership, this work has continued with significant expenditure including new sails.

NGALLA MAYA is situated in some wonderful cruising grounds and she is in full cruising trim and ready to sail. And of course, she is a Discovery.

Owner’s Comments

We searched extensively for the right cruising boat for long distance live aboard cruising with a focus on finding a yacht that was a high quality build for both our pleasure as well as safety, good performance, practical layout and had a raised saloon. We found the yacht to be a brilliant layout; at sea there was always a comfy spot to snuggle into, the motion was good and the performance was beyond our expectations. The raised saloon meant we could sit below and be on watch when the weather was wet. Likewise at anchor in a beautiful location with bad weather, we could still enjoy the location and not feel closed in like most boats do. The ongoing owner support from Discovery was outstanding too – we always had a support team only a phone call away which was gold.
