The Discovery 67 is a proven and well designed and constructed blue water cruising yacht with sweet lines from Ron Holland giving her superb sailing performance and a thoughtful well-conceived interior. TILLY MINT was built for her for her first owners as a family cruising yacht and she took them far and in great comfort. In her first ownership she cruised the Mediterranean, Scandinavia and spent several winters in the Caribbean. Although she can be handled by the family, she always had crew and she chartered successfully but modestly on both sides of the Atlantic. The winter of 2017/18 saw a major refit with a new teak deck, full repaint of the superstructure and the fitting of a new generator. Her rig was replaced in 2014.
Her current owners purchased her in 2019 and undertook a refit to fit her for a cruising programme in the Mediterranean including full servicing of her systems, and work to the mast plinth where it needed some strengthening. She also had full overhaul and replacement of her Audio Visual equipment and hence she was ready to sail with her new owner.
After sailing successfully in the Mediterranean for a season, a further refit was undertaken. Work carried out includes:
TILLY MINT is now totally ready for seven seas sailing and is gleaming, with all her systems updated and offers relaxed, comfortable and effortless sailing. She is a comfortable platform for living well aboard.

We purchased TILLY MINT for blue water cruising as a family. Because of this, we put her through a big refit programme to make her a great place for the family to spend time aboard. Because of this, a good selection of toys and good audio visual equipment was key. At the same time we wanted up to date electronics, inverters and for all the machinery to be in tip top condition. We also did work around air conditioning, sound deadening and cosmetics internally.
TILLY MINT sails beautifully – much better than I expected and she is a joy to be at sea aboard. With her automated rig she is easy to handle with a family crew and we have found managing her easy. Close quarters handling is also straightforward as her bowthruster works well and the stern is easily controlled by engaging the propeller correctly.
All in all TILLY MINT has exceeded our expectations. Unfortunately, the Covid 19 pandemic curtailed our cruising plans as for everyone. We have continued to upgrade the yacht through 2021/21 for our use, and it was certainly not our intention to sell. However, we are now doing so for family reasons which mean that we will be unable to use her this season. This is a sad moment for us, but we know that her next owners will have a good looking and totally sorted blue water cruising yacht that is perfect for family blue water cruising.
