Ten years ago, the Discovery 55 set the benchmark as the perfect short-handed luxury cruising yacht. Building on feedback from over 40 owners, Discovery Yachts unveiled their exceptional new yacht, the Discovery 57, at the Southampton Boatshow in 2012. This impressive new model retains all of the great design features but with more space and stunning new styling. With a clear ambition to create the ultimate short-handed cruising yacht, the new 57 bears all the hallmarks of a Discovery: designed for performance, built for safety, equipped for luxury and defined by quality.
With the core design again determined by Ron Holland, our in-house design and production teams have reviewed every detail of the new yacht design to ensure that this is the creation of a new classic. The interior is designed by Ken Frievokh, and the structure is engineered by High Modulus.
Discovery Yachts is a company in pursuit of perfection and nowhere is this more evident than in the design and construction of the new Discovery 57.
"The Discovery 57 is a beautiful yacht and I look forward to many years of pleasure sailing her. The quality and work ethic of the Discovery team show through in the final product"
"Designed specifically for liveaboard couples, the Discovery 57 comes with a very complete spec list, not just ready to sail but ready to live aboard"
"Discovery put owners and safety first. Everything is diagnosable and accessible and everything has a backup option"
"The twin-poled downwind solution on the Discovery 57, that you can reef and depower simply from the cockpit is a gold standard for long ocean passages"
"The raised saloon is the USP of the 57. Certainly it would be hard to find panoramic views to rival those from the Discovery 57"
