Nov 08 Factory visit

Another visit to the Discovery Yachts Group factory to have a look at the progress on our 480.

Up on the build floor three are now three 480’s side by side, and its good to see everybody is so busy with  2 Bluewater 50 catamarans, and Discovery and Southerly models including a 540 also taking shape, happily ours is the next one to be completed, with her deck and main glass fitted, whilst the white hull has all the main bulkheads fitted, and the blue in the corner is still rather empty by comparison.


It’s a great time for visitors to the yard to see these stages in the build process. Today our boat was very busy with various fittings being added like stanchion bases, deck lockers, hatches and port-lights, whilst below decks the last elements of glassing the deck to bulkheads is going on, whilst others are fitting the water pumps, behind the seat lockers, and all the other bits and bobs a boat needs. I nipped on during a quiet moment for a photo.
