M/V Discover's current owners have recently completed a cosmetic refit. Previous owner invested over $1,300,000 including upgrades, improvements, and recent Awlgrip for entire yacht, M/V Discover offers a buying opportunity for the client looking for a serious bluewater cruiser for rugged environs.
This can-do passagemaker knows full well the capabilities of a Cape Horn Trawler and M/V Discover was created with all these traits and more. Whether on a jaunt to the islands or on a journey of a lifetime, this Cape Horn will nestle its owners in comfort and security.
In addition to safety features like get-home engine, double hull, bulbous bow, bilge keels, bolt in windows with storm covers, M/V Discover is equipped with hydraulic bow and stern thrusters, watermaker, custom swim platform ideal for diving or fishing, and many conveniences for bluewater or coastal cruising.
Current owners purchased M/V Discover in 2013. Subsequent real estate purchases have them land-locked for a while and they are presenting a ready-to-go expeditiont condition vessel in excellent condition currently located near Seattle. Previous owner's cruising included Florida, Bahamas, Caribbean, Central America, and PNW.
