Discovery Yachts and NW Yachtnet
Discovery Yachts was founded 27 years ago by Michael Locatell CPYB and Elizabeth Locatell to serve the Offshore & Coastal Cruising Community. The Locatell’s have been boaters for over 41 years and have owned sailing & power yachts in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Sweden, France and The Netherlands. The Locatell's are the past owners of a Linssen 320 Dutch Sturdy Royal steel trawler and have taken delivery of a new Linssen Grand Sturdy 35.0 Sedan!. Discovery Yachts specializes in new European yachts, importing over 45 new semi-custom yachts to North America. To insure the yacht meets your specifications we travel to the European yards 2 to 3 times during each yachts construction. New yachts imported by Discovery Yachts are built to North American standards in regards to AC electrical, propane gas, and safety systems.
Today, Discovery Yachts owner's Michael and Elizabeth are the North American importers for Linssen Motor Yachts of Holland, and are the North America West agents for Wauquiez Sailing Yachts of France.

A business that began life as a small boatyard in 1949 has become a market leader in the steel yacht building sector within three generations. Linssen Yachts is a byword for steel displacement yachts of superior quality and for continuous innovative product and process development. In each decade since the company was established, Linssen Yachts has been the driving force behind innovative ideas for modernizing the yacht building process. And it remains so today!
The Linssen boatyard is an impressive complex with a surface area of more than 484,000 square feet. Production is divided between two locations (Maasbracht and Echt). All in all, a very impressive process that you can hardly do justice to here on paper. We have had the chance to inspect Linssen Yachts while working at European Boat Shows over the last 10+ years, and to visit the Linssen Yard 8 times. Linssen Yachts and the yard are very impressive to say the least, so much so, we bought a used Dutch Sturdy 320 Linssen Yacht for our own use, and now own a 2020 demo Linssen Grand Sturdy 35.0 Sedan! With our assistance your new Linssen Yacht will be every bit as unique as you are. You can make it just as exclusive and special as you like.
Wauquiez Sailing Yachts of France
Discovery Yachts has just been appointed the North West American agent for Wauquiez Pilot Saloon Yachts of France.
Wauquiez Yachts have a soul! A lifetime devoted to building extraordinary boats, that was the destiny of Henri Wauquiez, who gave his name to our workshop in 1965. For a boat to qualify as a Wauquiez there is no need to pile on the superlatives. A single word is enough to capture the essence built into each of our yachts: quality. We have not chosen the path towards industrialization, we prefer to let our know-how flow freely by offering you original, authentic boats. Boats that are safe, performing and comfortable for all those whose lives are marked by a passion for the sea.
