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.
