What To Expect Onboard: Discovery is a 42’ Sloop Rigged Cutter Built by the Down East Yacht building company in 1975. She was acquired by Captain Chandler in 2010 and he has performed an extensive 5 year restoration. Discovery has a full bathroom on board with a shower. She has a full galley on board complete with a gimbaled 3 burner oven/stove that stays level while the boat leans so that you can cook while sailing. There are also ice boxes that will keep ice for weeks at a time and refrigeration. The California-built sailboat has migrated all over the world, including at least three global circumnavigations. A 6-7 knot cruising speed provides a pleasant ride without undue heel. In 15-25 knot winds the modified full keel, with keel-hung rudder, provides superb balance, even in rough seas.

Our captain founded the company after many years of operating some of the larger excursion boats here in Destin and longing to provide a more personal setting for visitors to experience Destin by boat. Chandler grew up locally and was cut loose at the age of 12 on a small 20’ sailboat free to sail and explore all the Choctawhatchee Bay had to offer.
